Healthy eating has been a must for me recently. As part of my current period try to detox myself and get out of the rut that I have been stuck in, I have decided to add a few new bits and pieces into my diet to help give me that super food boost! At the spa last month I have an amazingly delicious salad, with feta and celery, topped with pine nuts. I’d never tried them before but something about then just really made the salad. So I was egar to buy some to experiment with putting in my own salads. I also got myself a couple of different types of seeds, including sunflower and sesame, again to add into salads and also on top of cereal to just give it that extra health benefit.
I am such a tea and coffee lover, but I am always so awear that it’s not always the best thing for you to drink, especially in the morning and at night; so I decided to explore other alternatives. I looked at a couple of different options of herbal tea and brought a few to try out. The first I grabbed was a bright and fruity morning tea with natural caffeine in it. I have to say after trying it the first time, I wasn’t too keen, but I have been making myself have one every so often and I am beginning to grow on the taste. Next for during the day I got green detox tea, this is something that I have always been a bit reluctant to try because I have never liked the smell, but I have to say that I have been enjoying it! Finally and my favourite out of all the ones that I brought was the nighttime tea. Theres something about it, it may just be physiological because of the name, but either way, it really helps me wind down before bed. The smell is calming, the taste is just a hint but really yummy and being able to have a warm drink that isn’t filling or containing caffine, really helps with settling the stomach. It’s definitly a tea that I would recommend to anyone who struggles with their nighttime routine, as i do.
Last of all for drink wise, I picked up a lemon and lime. This is something that i used to do before and want to get back into the habit of doing, lemon and lime water. It has so many health benefits to drinking it and in a morning its the perfect drink. Researchers say that you shouldn’t have a caffeine drink as your first drink in a morning, as many of us, including myself, do. Water is the best thing to drink. But like many of you will agree, water isn’t the first thing you really want to reach for, so by doing this it really adds something to make the thought more appetising. Finally I picked up a little treat for myself. Something yummy but also healthy, dark chocolate coated rice cakes. This is a treat I have loved for yeas now and when I eat healthily, its one I can eat and not feel guilty afterwards. Defiantly worth trying out if you havent yet! And this is coming from someone who can;’t stand rice cakes on their own!
I would love to hear any health food suggestions from you all! So please leave a comment below.
