How to end the year on a sweet note

Can you believe we're almost a week into December! And we’re about to bring in a new year?! Here's how to enjoy the party season without putting your physical and mental health on the back burner. So you can finish the year feeling good and clear-headed.


Here's our 5 easy steps to take into your everyday during these last few days of the year ...

  1. Extra greens and 6+ veggies. If you have a meal to yourself in between events, make sure to add an extra portion of greens and try and make your plate up with 6 different vegetables. With a base of grains, some protein, a herby dressing and a sprinkling of nuts and seeds, you have yourself a balanced meal with lots of diversity for optimum gut health. All our meals are crafted with this formula. Discover a sample menu here.
  2. 5-10 minutes. If carving out a workout a week doesn’t seem possible, try and commit to 5-10 minutes each day for a similar effect on mind and body. Form, Fluidform & Youtube have tons of 10 min strength, Pilates or yoga classes. Similarly 5-10 mins of guided meditation can be transformative. We use Reveri, Headspace or YouTube again for quick, simple guided sessions.
  3. An extra hour. With lots going on and festive commitments, it can be harder to carve out time for yourself. How to save on an extra hour? Cut out the shopping, meal prep and cooking. And we don’t mean grabbing the to-go range, which are often too processed and not cost-efficient. We can deliver fresh, nutritionally-balanced fresh food to your doorstep. Check out your options here. Spend this extra hour doing something that fills your cup - reading, walking, journalling, knitting, sleeping, spending more time with your family, the world is your oyster and you will feel all the better for it!
  4. Mini goals. Keep your health in check with realistic, achievable goals for the season, whether that be a 3-day movement challenge or a 3-day reset to motivate you and keep the momentum going. Starting the year strong will be easier if you set mini goals in the lead up.
  5. Vitamin D. Make sure you are getting enough of this key vitamin during the party season for an extra boost of energy. Taking a vitamin D supplement is always recommended, but you can also look to oily fish, eggs, mushrooms, and fortified soy and almond milk to boost that vitamin D supply as much as possible! Our mushroom and squash risotto from our menu is a great example. Check out this risotto recipe recipe or this mushroom and ginger broth recipe if you prefer to cook yourself.
