Instead of eating meats all the time, you can sometimes replace these with plant based proteins like legumes, nuts and seeds.
Instead of using packet sauces to add flavour to your food, why not have natural spices like ginger, turmeric and fresh herbs?
Hydration & Nutrition
If you find that you are not getting enough water and nutrition each day, why not eat more fruits and veggies with plenty of water & vitamins in them? These include strawberries, lettuce and watermelon.
Try to add bitter foods to each meal such as rocket and watercress as these will stimulate your digestive enzymes.
With a spring-clean, you can get rid of foods in your pantry or cupboards that won’t make you feel good or serve your health needs any longer.
