As much as Halloween is meant to be scary and turns out to be fun, healthy eating is about as scary as guinea pig wizardry. . .
Twice fermented, wheat grass kombucha, activated matcha lentils with turmeric and tiger nut pomade, matcha carrot and microgreen stew steamed in probiotic water….. These might all sound like a science experiment and whilst they may well offer benefits to your health, they are in no way essential.
The way to think about healthy eating is to take it back to basics. It doesn’t have to be super back to basics, like foraging woodlands and hand fishing the local rock pool! Think unprocessed, think fresh veggies- lots of them! Think preservative-free and think variety. By eating a wide selection of different foods you are more likely to get all the micronutrients your body requires. From glowing skin to a healthy tummy, it all starts with what we put in. It sounds like something your Grandmother would say right? Well, that’s because it is because it’s true. Now what’s scary about that? A choice of food for each meal or the same serving of the same tastes, day in day out, I know what sounds more daunting to me!
