5 steps to smarter meals (feat. t plus drinks & a giveaway)!
5 top tips to smarten up your meals; the smarter teas you need in your life, plus the prize bundle you’ll really want to win!
5 STEPS TO SMARTER MEALS:
STEP 1. Plan it out.
Meal planning has made such a difference to our lives. That little bit of time spent plotting out our meals saves SO much energy through the working week and makes it so much easier to resist reaching for (less healthy!) convenience options. Grab a pad or the notes section of your phone and get brainstorming some simple, nutritious dishes.
STEP 2. Add something extra to each of your main meals.
We’ve spoken about this one before, how adding just a sprinkle of nutrient-dense superfood really helps boost the goodness in your daily dishes. Revisit your meal plan and see which Superfoods you could add to your meals this week.
STEP 3. Find fresh inspiration.
Perhaps this should have been Step 1 as it makes it infinitely easier to plan your meals when you have a wide pool of healthy ideas to pick from. Get started on our recipes page, and check out the work of some of our favourite health bloggers (and theirs!) in ‘Healthy feeds to follow‘.
STEP 4. Start swapping.
You’ve made some healthy additions, now make some nutritious swaps. Change your breakfast tea to a t plus blend and switch your white rice for organic sprouted GABA. It’s super easy and all those little changes add up.
STEP 5. Eat mindfully.
OK, this one is a little different, yet it’s just as smart! By giving your meals your undivided attention, you’ll become more attuned to your body’s cues. You’ll learn how good your food tastes and feels, and actually notice when you’re feeling full. Smart, hey?
So, we’ve said this feature is in aid of t plus’s new series. Time to hear what’s happening…
