January is a time of resolutions and shiny optimism that can help you kick-start a healthy eating plan. Starting is easy, but we know it can be just as easy to lose your enthusiasm along the way. Making small changes and being realistic with your goals can help you stay on track, and don’t be fooled into thinking that small changes don’t matter because making small changes can soon add up to a dramatic difference in your health.
Simple changes such as eating more whole foods, more raw foods, preparing real food from scratch at home, eating fewer processed foods (or better still no processed foods) is a great way to start cleaning up your act.
Move more – try taking more walks, try a new sport or activity.
Slow down your eating, chew more and stop when you feel full.
It’s important though to make sure that you eat foods that you enjoy – good health includes nourishing body and mind too! This is where tiger nuts can help because not only are they good for you but they are super versatile and taste great too!
Here are three simple ways tiger nuts can help you improve your health and help you sparkle;
- Try adding extra fibre to your diet with a spoonful or two of Tiger Nuts Powder into your cereal each day – this can quickly boost your gut health by feeding your good gut bacteria, improving digestion and regulating your bowels. Having a healthy gut doesn’t simply improve digestion, it has a massive effect on pretty much every aspect of our overall health and wellbeing.
- Cut out processed chocolate and eat raw tiger nuts chocolate bars instead – our raw chocolate can help boost your mood, fight free radicals and improve your gut health.
- Try cutting out dairy and making your own tiger nut mylk at home – this can help detoxify the liver, reduce LDL cholesterol and boost your immune system.
If you want more ideas for how to get some tiger nut goodness into your diet you can find lots of inspiration in our recipe section or find lots of lovely creations on social media 🙂
Make tiger nuts part of your healthy eating plan every day and get your sparkle back this year.
Wishing you a very Happy, Healthy and Super Sparkly 2018!
