Of all the resolutions people make at New Year, eating more healthily is always up there. Yet it's often only a few weeks before that resolution starts to slip. As summer starts, though, see it as a second bite at the cherry - another opportunity to turn over a new leaf and start eating more wholesome and healthy food. If you're wondering how to eat healthily without having to invest lots of time (or going hungry!), we've got the solution. So many restaurants are offering healthy eating choices, it's as easy to order in a meal that's good for you as one that is pure comfort food.
1. A healthy start to the day
Start the day as you mean to go on with an Organic Acai Granola Bowl from Healthy Little Secrets. Not only do you get fresh blueberries and organic goji berries - both packed with antioxidants and vitamins - but there's also a base of organic unsweetened acai puree. Acai berries promote better heart health, improve digestion and provide an energy boost. Granola adds some crunch and it's topped with other fresh fruit too. If you prefer a speedy breakfast, they also have fab smoothies and protein shakes.
2. Don't eat your greens - drink 'em!
Do you have that nagging feeling that you're not eating enough green veggies? And is it mainly driven by the fact that you don't actually like them that much? Don't waste your time pushing broccoli around your plate - get a hit of all the greens you need in one tasty drink from Freshii. The Freshii Green smoothie gives you spinach, kale, avocado and romaine all in one go. Blended with yoghurt and pineapple for some sweetness, this fab smoothie will fully satisfy on taste and in health benefits.
3. Poké - so much more than a salad
We all know salads are good for us, but they can feel a little dull sometimes. See salad in a whole new light when you order the Spicy Maui from Poké and Co. It's got plenty of salad greens like avocado and snow peas, but it's the raw salmon and tuna with a hot chilli ponzu sauce that makes this salad dish so exciting. And the salmon and tuna are loaded with anti-oxidants, omega-3 fatty acids and protein. Once you've had a poké, it'll be hard to go back to an ordinary salad!
4. Lower your carbs with bulgur
If you're trying to cut down on carbs, it can be hard to find a meal that fits the bill but still satisfies. Simply going without potatoes or pasta can leave an empty space on your plate and in your stomach. Instead, try swapping in a low-carb staple like bulgur. At Babajii, their Chicken Beyti is a mix of bulgur and minced chicken with chilli and parsley. It's packed with protein from the chicken and vitamins, minerals and fibre from the bulgur. Healthy, yes, but it doesn't taste that way!
