Healthy Eating Tips

Top tips for healthy eating

Food is the petrol we put into our body, providing the fuel to make us flourish. Fresh, seasonal, local, organic, whole food cooked with love is the best form of nutrition our body can get. The finest food for all of us has not travelled a great distance from where we live. It is in season and has not been grown using chemicals and pesticides. If we choose to eat meat, fish or eggs, the way the animals have been raised, fed and treated impacts on the food they produce. If most meals we eat are cooked from scratch then they will never contain any hidden additives, preservatives, colourings, sweeteners, salt etc. The simplest home cooked meal based on raw ingredients is far more nutritious than anything purchased preprepared from a shop. An organic box scheme of fruit and vegetables delivered directly to your front door saves on carbon emissions and carrying. Sprouting your own seeds provides a valuable form of nutrition packed with minerals and vitamins. Be creative and explore different tastes, smells and colours.
