/ Eat the Rainbow
Please don’t go chasing the rainbow when it next rains as I don’t mean literally. What I do mean is eat a variety of coloured veg and fruit because eat colour will provide you with a different micronutrient for your body!
/ Compliment fruit with a fat
Fat helps absorb the nutrients in food but will also help keep sugar levels normal. (See Fat Blog) e.g Apple with Nut Butter
/ Stay Hydrated
Hydration is key for our bodies to be working at optimum try drinking 2-3L of water a day. Top Tip – carry a big bottle around with you… the more you drink, the lighter it gets!
If you’re worried about not getting all your micronutrients you can buy supplements like multivitamins to help your body – I use the ones from Holland & Barrett (full blog coming soon)
/ Keep a Varied Diet
Keep your diet varied so your body doesn’t get used to what it’s eating. Our guts need a variety of bacteria which we will get from having a variety of foods so try not to eat things like yoghurt every single day as this could lead to an intolerance – i once heard a saying (sorry can’t remember who said it) of something like – ‘we aren’t what we eat, we are what our body can absorb’.
