Staying healthy in 2013
With the New Year underway, the cupboards are still bulging at the seams with leftover winter treats. Regardless of whether you're in the office, indulging in some sale shopping or at home, festive food is everywhere!
With this in mind, it is sometimes hard to say no and many of us will watch our healthy eating plans fly out the window before we’ve even had time speak of our New Year’s resolution to get healthy.
There are ways to avoid unwanted temptations; one concept involves considering ordering your grocery shopping online.
The supermarkets are home to a number of taste tantalising deals, especially as we enter a new year. Buy-one-get-one-free offers on festively-themed biscuits, brandy butter and cakes are often highlighted and walking past these in a physical aisle is a lot harder than ignoring them on a webpage.
Shopping online will allow you to bypass such temptations; sticking to a strict shopping list instead. There are a number of sites offering such a service including that of milk&more.
When placing an online order, why not consider a few healthy alternatives as opposed to the usual 'calorific' foods. Opt for half-fat creams, fresh veg, sugar-free beverages and organic produce.
It is the way we cook our meals that makes them unhealthy too so when serving up your delivery, try grilling instead of frying and always use a low-calorie cooking oil.
A hassle-free shopping experience
The Internet not only offers a number of seasonal savings, it is also a hassle-free way to shop. There is no need to wait in lengthy queues, fight the traffic or brave the cold weather; goods are quite simply delivered to your front door.
Those that reside in Bristol will need to look into a food delivery Bristol option but these are easy to find with plenty of retailers catering to local and national markets.
Limit your treats
The occasional treat shouldn't be frowned upon; however, too many fattening foods can cause your skin to break out, your tummy to expand and your energy levels to drop. Try swapping the occasional sweet treat for dried fruit or unsalted nuts. Both options are a great source of fibre and a much healthier alternative to chocolate bars, fizzy drinks and crisps. There are plenty of them around at this time of year too and investing in them now can set you on a healthy path for the next twelve months.
Forget the fizz
Many will reach for a fizzy drink when given the choice between that and water; it is the more exciting option after all. Unfortunately, it isn't the healthiest.
Too many fizzy drinks can cause you to feel a little bloated, not to mention the effects they have on your teeth. An alternative to water is milk. Packed full of calcium, if you are unable to drink a full glass a day then have it with cereal every morning instead.
