Diet Tweaks For a Healthier You

Sprinkle Superfoods

Last year it was all about kale, courgetti and coconuts. And this year it’s raw cacao, turmeric and acai. There’s always a long list of ‘trending’ superfoods and unless you have a kitchen the size of a field and a recipe that can blend everything up into a tasty oblivion, it’s hard to know which ones to get into your everyday. We say, why pick? Opt for a superfood-packed powder and simply sprinkle over meals (eg. porridge) and smoothies to tick off a handful of healthy superfoods in a mere matter of seconds.

Mark Your Water Intake

Whether you have a desk job or are on your feet all day, staying hydrated is vital. And while the recommended 2 litres a day (8 glasses) may seem easily achievable, it can be difficult to monitor. Instead of reaching for a glass each time you need water, start the day by filling up a 2 litre bottle and pour your daily intake out of this bottle. This will work as a handy visual aid and ultimately help you reach your H2O goals.

Protein, Protein, Protein

We’ve said it before and we’ll say it before, a protein-rich diet is not exclusively reserved for the body builders among us. Protein is responsible for energy and is a contributing factor to mood and cognitive function. So to feel healthier from the inside out, try a protein supplement for that much-needed boost.

Smoothie Blast

The ultimate shortcut to achieving the 5 fruit and veg a day goal? A smoothie, of course. Simply blitz your fruit bowl favourites and add a splash of coconut water for added healthy points. For smoothie inspiration, check out these quick and healthy smoothie recipes.

Vital Vitamins

Everyone has personal health goals and woes, so there’s never a one-size-fits-all approach to tweaking a diet. But, if you want to ensure everyday features all the nutrients necessary for you, then opt for targeted vitamins. Taking these daily, coupled with a healthy diet, will help give your insides a little health MOT.

However, if you feel you’re seriously lacking in a vitamin consult your doctor or visit a Superdrug pharmacy for more advice.
