It’s 2016 and everyone is making New Year’s resolutions (it’s not too late!). Most of them involve being more active and determined to eat healthier. At Linen Chest, we’ve got everything you need to starting living a healthier lifestyle. Here are some great items to get you on track, without sacrificing those things you love.
1) Get Juicing
One of the best ways to cleanse out all the junk that you ate during the holidays, is to go on a juice cleanse. We don’t necessarily mean one of those diets where you slave away for days, just feasting on liquid; we encourage you to enjoy a blended juice or fresh smoothie once in a while. Check out our range of juicers to see how you can turn your fruit and vegetables into an exciting blended mix of goodness.
2) Get Healthy While Saving Money
The January blues are not only about the state of your body, but also about the finances. So, why not save a few dollars too? So much money is spent on eating out, especially grabbing lunch at work. The quick options are usually really unhealthy. We suggest preparing your lunch ahead of time and storing them so they’re ready to go the next morning. We’ve got a collection of stylish containers and lunch bags that are great for packing! Don’t miss our round up of lunch gear.
3) Delicious Homemade Dinners
Each evening is stressful when you are trying to be good with your food. You come home from a hard day’s work and all you want to do is order food. The last thing you want to do is slave over a stove to cook something healthy. However, with some of our cool new kitchen gadgets, cooking can actually be fun! Make any vegetable look and taste just like real pasta with our Spiralfix. If you’re a fan of fried food, but are worried as to how much fat you are taking in, we’ve got something special for you. The ActiFry will help you create the perfect french fries, chicken and any other favourite fried dish with three times less fat than when it’s cooked in the oven. Guilt-free tasty dinners!
4) The Sweet Stuff
Eating healthy can be difficult, especially if you are not used to it, so there may be temptations along the way. However, enjoying a delicious dessert may not be as bad as you think. Love popcorn? Check out our popcorn machines, which allow you to make cinema quality popcorn in the comfort of your own home, without all the excess butter and sugar found in store-bought popcorn. If you love ice cream, we know you still enjoy it during the winter. Why not try making your own frozen yogurt / ice cream? This is the lighter way to enjoy ice cream as you can choose the ingredients that go inside and it tastes just as good!
5) Drink, Drink, Drink
Drinking water is vital to one’s health. Did you know you’re supposed to drink 8 glasses of water a day? There are so many benefits to drinking water, and it seems pretty simple enough to do… but why aren’t we all doing it? We’re busy and we’re human! Our favourite trick to drinking more water, is to invest in a great (and cute) water bottle that you’ll want to have with you and use. Try it and let us know if gets you drinking more.
