6 healthy recipe tips to try

Our tips to add a healthier twist to your recipe repertoire

  1. Choose nutrient-dense foods: Opt for foods that are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre, and other essential nutrients. Include a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats in your meal.
  2. Control portion sizes: Be mindful of portion sizes to prevent overeating. Use smaller plates and bowls to help manage portion sizes.
  3. Include lean protein: Incorporate lean protein such as chicken, beans, or lentils. Protein helps build and repair tissues and keeps you feeling fuller for longer.
  4. Cook at home: Cooking at home gives you control over ingredients. It also allows you to experiment with different flavours and make healthier choices.
  5. Season with herbs and spices: Instead of relying on salt or store-bought sauces, use herbs and spices to add flavour to your meals. This can enhance the taste without adding unnecessary calories and sodium.
  6. Stay hydrated: Drink water throughout the day and include it with your meal. Staying hydrated is crucial for overall health and can help control appetite.
