Three Things We're Adding This Week

Here at The Detox Kitchen we’re big advocates on adding to your diet and lifestyle rather than cutting out! Balance in life is key, and being told to ditch the things you love completely will have negative affects in the long-run – focus on adding to your health, not restricting!

The 3 things we’re adding this week:

  1. Preparation

It’s so easy coming home from work, grabbing that tin of baked beans and throwing a potato into the oven. This week make a new a goal and take an hour out of your day each Sunday for food prep. This is the key to a successful healthy lifestyle! Write a shopping list with delicious, seasonal and nutritious foods that will make meals. This will keep you on track knowing what your meal plan for the day will be and you’ll stay clear from processed, packaged foods.

  1. Rest

The early-morning commute, staying on top of work and running around after your kids are all factors that contribute to a busy lifestyle! Take a few minutes at the end of your day to totally switch off and relax. Rest is so important for the mind and also for your body. Slow down and relax!

  1. Add a new healthy grain to your diet 

Get inspired this week with a new ingredient to add to your shopping list. Grains like buckwheat, quinoa and pearl barely are all delicious alternatives to rice and pasta. Throw in some fresh herbs, seeds and a squeeze of lemon juice and there you have a quick and easy base to add to your protein of choice! Try our Quinoa, Fennel and Tomato Salad for a refreshing and healthy dinner option.

Feed Your Hair

Whether you keep your hair long and beachy or short and cool for the Summer months, keep it nice and healthy. Nourish from the inside out. No hair mask will beat a healthy diet when it comes to getting luscious locks. We've done our research for some top foods to get your hair-y head around.

How to go vegetarian and still be healthy

Research has shown that people who follow a vegetarian or vegan diet have a lower incidence of diet related diseases but not everyone eating this way makes healthy food choices. No matter what dietary preferences you choose to follow the basics of what constitutes a balanced diet are still overarching.

Top 5 stress busting tips

Eat. Sleep. Work. Repeat. Now while this is most definitely not a rose-tinted way of looking at life, the point is that we are all guilty of finding ourselves rushing around at full speed, to the point that we can sometimes forget to properly look after ourselves. Which is why we’ve come up with our top 5 tips for feeling less stressed.

We take away the stress of planning, shopping and cooking healthy meals.

Simply select the package that is right for you, choose your start date and duration, and look forward to your first delivery of wholesome food.
