As the end of the year approaches with the winter months rearing, what better time than to refresh yourself inside and out!
We know what it's like scrolling through Instagram and Pinterest with healthy inspiration filling up your feed. This is why we have broken down the facts and present to you two food items to add to your diet that will get you through the day. It really is as simple as that.
MORNING/DAY: BOOST ENERGY
Ditch the caffeine. Eat the beets. Instead of your usual morning coffee, get in the veggie aisle and pick up beetroot, a seasonal veg that tastes great in a juice.
The veg contains high levels of nitrate which helps the blood flow. A study from the University of Exeter have found that regular intake of the red juice helps you exercise 16% longer, suggesting how it will pick you up during the day instead of a comedown in which caffeine creates. There may not be enough hours in the day, but beetroot is the closest thing to using them wisely within your diet.
EVENING/NIGHT: REDUCE STRESS
We have never been more happy to discover that chocolate is healthy. Well, dark chocolate that is. It has presented many health benefits which means that you can make it a staple part of your diet. The high insulin levels found in the cocoa delight reduces levels of cortisol which is found in the body when stress arises.
So there you have it. Two simple additions to your diet and daily food intake can make life all that bit better and have you feeling and looking like a goddess.
