Quick & Easy Ways To Be Healthier Day To Day


Lately I have been trying to improve my health levels by increasing my exercise and making little changes to my diet. Not only are we on the build up to summer, but I have also been invited to two weddings next month and so I want to feel a little healthier, a little trimmer and a lot more confident.

In today’s post, I wanted to share a few quick and easy healthy little tweaks and additions that I have incorporated into my daily diet. I am by no means any sort of dietitian and I certainly wouldn’t class myself as a health or fitness blogger. Below is merely a few things that I have picked up from various sources and altered to fit my own personal tastes and lifestyle.


Protein Shakes

I try to go to the gym a couple of times a week and I have been making more of a conscious effort to go at least three times a week. I tend to have some sort of cardio session as I have always had the aim of toning and trimming down rather than building muscle. Lately however, I have read more and more about protein shakes and the benefits of having them pre or post a workout.

I have not only read about the recovery benefits of having then after a cardio or weight session, but that they are also a great way to add extra protein into your diet if used as a breakfast or snack alternative. I use the Strawberries and Cream powder from My Protein and usually mix it with almond milk in my Cute Nutrition shaker*. I tend to make myself one after I get back from the gym or on rest days I might have one for breakfast to give my body a bit of a protein hit.


Smoothies

Another healthy boost that I have been having lately is fruit smoothies. I love smoothies and think that they are perfect for a lovely breakfast or afternoon snack. I have a fairly inexpensive smoothie maker from Next that I used a lot last summer, and I have started using it again over the last few weeks.

My favourite smoothie to make is a banana and peanut butter one which has almond milk, two small ripe bananas, a tablespoon of Whole Earth peanut butter and a drizzle of honey for sweetness. This is a lovely smoothie I like to make for breakfast on days when I’m not in the office as it is filling and pretty healthy. 

I have also been adding half a teaspoon of Organic Supergreens Powder* by Indigo Nutrition into my smoothies for an extra boost of highly nutritious antioxidant vitamins and minerals. I think on a day-to-day basis it can be hard to hit the nutritional quota and so adding this one hundred percent, pure, organic Supergreens powder means that I am easily getting a huge health boost.


Greek Yoghurt & Fruit 

This final healthy product that I have recently incorporated into my diet is Greek yoghurt and fruit. I have a very, very big sweet tooth and I struggle the most on an evening once I have eaten my tea. Weather I’m watching television, reading my book or just chilling out, I get such a craving for something sweet like chocolate and sweeties on an evening. 

So I have started to make myself a bowl of Greek yoghurt, berries, chia seeds and honey for my pudding. Not only does this curb my sweet cravings, but it is also quite filling and so I feel really satisfied after having it. I sometimes have this for breakfast with a sprinkle of muesli, which is easy to take to work on a morning.  


There is also a new video on my Youtube Channel all about these healthy habits that I have recently incorporated into my daily diet so be sure to have a watch if you haven’t already!
