Eating healthy can be easy!

Home & Living

Making a few conscious changes throughout the day can positively impact your diet and wellbeing.

Eating healthy throughout the day is not always an easy task. But it’s certainly something we are all striving for. Here are our tips on how you can make healthy choices throughout your day.

Well-balanced start of the day

Breakfast food is the best food, right? However, it’s not always the healthiest … Popular breakfast options such as cornflakes or baked goods are often packed with sugar, which will not sustain you for too long, while processed meats like bacon and sausages are simply sodium bombs. But your breakfast can be light, hearty and healthy, all at the same time.

If in the morning you love to have something savoury, make yourself an omelette packed with veggies. Sandwiches are also a great option as long as you opt for wholemeal bread. If mornings get you craving something sweet, choose oatmeal, homemade granola or a smoothie . Enrich any of those with beautifully creamy almond butter that you can learn how to make here . It will not only add a delicious nuttiness to your dish but also keep you full for longer.

Preparing a healthy lunch

The key to making delicious light lunches (next to fresh ingredients, of course!) is choosing the right cooking tools. And it all begins and ends with the right pan. Choosing a non-stick pan is always the way to go because by cooking with it you can avoid using excess oil, while still ensuring delicious crispiness and browning. That’s why when you’re prepping your lunch for tomorrow, the week ahead or on the day, the iCook™ Non-Stick Fry Pans is the perfect companion. Use it when making warm salads, grilled sandwiches, paninis, wraps, noodles and more. It is durable, mess-free and easy to clean.

Make your snacks count

You might have heard that snacking is an unhealthy habit that you need to ditch but, honestly, it all depends on what kind of snacks you’re indulging in. Sure, if you opt for processed foods like chips, cookies, and candy, you’re loading yourself up with simple carbohydrates that have a low nutritional value and way too much added sugar and salt. Not to mention that they don’t keep you full for long. However, that’s not your only option.

When buying snacks, choose nuts or your favourite trail mix and get some fruits that are easy to munch on on the go, like bananas and apples. Dairy products such as yoghurt and cheese can also make a great snack as they are quite filling. And that almond butter we mentioned before? Eat it on bread or spoon it into your mouth just like that – we’re not going to judge!

Simple tweaks for making a healthy dinner

Cooking dinner is quite a feat on its own but making it healthy and balanced is even more demanding. However, with a few little adjustments, you can certainly make it work.

First off, when planning your dinners, try to opt for meatless options more frequently. Enrich your meal with protein substitutes that you like, such as eggs, legumes or Nutrilite™ All Plant Protein , which contains all nine essential amino acids. Try it out by mixing a scoop into this delicious aubergine salad!

Another way of upgrading your dinner is picking the wholemeal option. When it comes to pastas, burger buns or other grains, try to avoid refined options and go as natural as you can.

And, finally, just like with lunches, always opt for the right tools. The iCook Non-Stick Fry Pan Set , which consists of three different-sized pans, is your faithful sidekick when cooking anything healthy.
