- Drink plenty of water
We probably don’t need to explain why it’s so important to drink enough water. We hear it often, but are you reaching the recommended two litres a day? Our bodies need enough water to function properly and keep themselves healthy. Are you not drinking enough water? The body is then less able to eliminate the toxins that are released. It is also important for your energy level to drink enough water every day.
- Eat more plants
Eating healthier is quite simple by eating more plants. Eat more plants, eat fresh and eat pure. When you eat more plants and fill your plate with vegetables, for example, you ensure that your body gets more nutrients. What comes purely from nature can hardly be unhealthy!
- Clear out your kitchen cupboard
The contents of your kitchen cupboards have a big impact on how healthy you eat every day. Are those cupboards filled with unhealthy products? If so, there’s a good chance you’ll be tempted – it’s only human. Clean out your kitchen cupboards and replace some ingredients with healthier ones. These are the healthy products I always have in the house!
- Supplement your diet with food supplements.
Together with your doctor or a nutritionist, examine your current diet to see if you are getting enough nutrients on a daily basis. You can then supplement any deficiencies with food supplements (e.g. from the website Wellvita). In addition to general health, they also offer supplements for body flexibility, e.g. for heavy, tired legs.
- Have plenty of healthy snacks at home.
The great thing about having plenty of healthy snacks at home? You never miss out. Make sure you always have homemade or ready-to-eat healthy snacks at home. Make a big broth on Sunday and freeze some of it so you only have to go to the kitchen once in a while.
- Get outside more often
Go for a walk more often and get some fresh air. Spending more time outdoors has a positive effect on your mood. Daylight stimulates the body’s production of serotonin, one of the “happy hormones”. Research shows that people who are happier often take better care of themselves.
- Start the day with a healthy breakfast.
Your body works hard when you sleep. Therefore, it is important that you eat a delicious and healthy breakfast in the morning. Breakfast aids digestion, gives you energy and prevents unnecessary snacking at the end of the morning. Here you can find our favourite breakfast recipes.
- Drink green smoothies
One of the easiest and secretly one of our favourite tips to simply eat healthier is to drink green smoothies every day. A green smoothie is like a vitamin bomb. Packed with vegetables, fruits, seeds, nuts, powerful herbs and more.
- Take a break
Did you know that a balance between activity and rest is important for good health? Due to the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the level of cortisol (stress hormone) in our bodies is often high. By scheduling small breaks throughout the day, you ensure that your body can recover from all the stimuli and recharge its batteries. In this way, you avoid a completely exhausted body.
