We all know a clean diet is a must when wanting to get in shape, not only is exercise important to reach your goals, but also what you eat matters. It’s not about forbidding yourself from eating certain types of food, it’s about listening to your body and being a little creative when it comes to meal prep.

For a long time, we’ve had the misconception that eating healthy is boring and not tasty, but in fact, if you know how to mix your fruits and vegetables then why not add your favourite ingredients to a recipe which can then become a healthy and delicious option for your meals.

We know what you’re thinking… Sometimes that can be hard right? In all honestly it is hard to find the balance or think of good recipes, that’s why few months ago we started a new Weekly Post  on our social media called #HEALTHYHUMPDAY. If you follow us on social media you would have already seen our #HHD posts which consist of lots of healthy, great, easy recipes.

Today we want to share some of them with you and have mapped out a whole day of healthy recipes just for you !

Eating healthy is not about depriving yourself from eating but to understand that it is a lifestyle. Your eating shouldn’t be a diet you’ll do for 3 months and then forget and go back to you old habits. It’s trying to make your eating lifestyle as natural as possible!

Obviously a ‘cheat meal’ here and there is perfectly ok (we are only human after all!)  

Enjoy what you like the most, whether that’s dessert, a burger or pizza and try to make your diet 80% organic and 20% of what you enjoy eating the most- that way you are much more likely to keep this lifestyle and most importantly maintaining it!
