After an entire month of festive eating, drinking and basically ignoring all acceptable norms of food consumption (Why, yes! I will have a chocolate bar for breakfast!), January is when we all need a bit of a detox.
It’s a new year with new resolutions so why not begin with your health in mind?
I’m not one for fad diets, after realising years ago that there’s no way one can keep up with the do’s and don’t’s every single day! Instead, I consider healthy eating as a lifestyle, incorporating it into my daily routine rather than my daily routine being incorporated into a single diet! The more you appreciate what you eat, the easier it is to eat better and consequently, feel better!
Here are a couple of my go-to health gurus that inspire me to eat, sleep and breathe healthy everyday:
Petite Kitchen – I’ve mentioned this blog before and am continuously in awe of Eleanor’s nutritious and wholesome recipes that are so easy to make at home. She provides vegan and gluten-free options as well and also has a book.
Oh My Veggies – Ok, so this is something new that I have yet to try after seeing ‘Meat-less Mondays’ floating around the blogosphere. Now I’m very much into my meat but there’s no harm in going veg every now and then.
Helmsley & Helmsley – I came across the Helmsley sisters after their recipes appeared weekly on my Facebook feed via Vogue UK (and if Vogue approves of them, so do I!). This stunning duo believe in cooking real, healthy food rather than dieting. I’m sold! You can also buy their book.
Deliciously Ella – Having started her food blog as a way of dealing with a rare illness, Ella is all about teaching just how easy it is to eat right without being an experienced cook. She also just recently published a book.
Neal’s Yard Healing Foods – If you ever want to know the benefits and dangers of literally every single thing you’re putting in your body, then this book is the way to go! It includes details on every ingridient imaginable and then provides recipes for the healthiest meals. There are also suggestions for those with diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol etc.
Do you have any go-to health blogs, cook-books or instagram feeds that you can’t do without?
