1. Get Cooking

With fast and easy food delivery services like Uber Eats right at your fingertips, it can be easy to just order takeout. However, getting hands on and cooking yourself or your family a meal can really help you connect with and appreciate what you’re eating more.

It has a smaller impact on your wallet and makes you more mindful of what you are eating.

Unlike ordering takeout, you can customize your food and you know exactly what is going into it.

If you’re anxious about getting started, try one of our delicious and healthy meal kits. They come with easy to follow recipes and tips so you can create delicious meals in minutes. All our recipes are stress-free.

2. Plan Plan Plan

Planning ahead of time ensures success in the kitchen! Take a couple of minutes out of your day to plan your meals for the week. Write out your meal plan and ingredients and transform them into a grocery list. This way you’ll know exactly what to buy at the grocery store and have no decision fatigue for the rest of the week.

3. Be Prepared

Prep some meals or ingredients that store well, ahead of time. Carve away a couple hours on a Sunday to smash out an afternoon of meal prepping so that you have more 'me' time during the week.

Often times we don’t feel we have the energy to chop, wash and prepare ingredients after a long day. Having vegetables chopped up and ready to go or rice that’s been cooked ahead of time can really help you stay on track and stick to your meal plan even on your busiest days.

4. Take it Slow

Start off easy so you don’t get discouraged or overwhelmed. One healthy meal a week is better than none so begin by adding one or two healthy meals into your rotation and add more over time.

Find yourself a couple of easy recipes to start with and add more to your rotation as you go. Here are some of our favourite easy recipes to get you started.

5. Spice Things Up

Often times we add way more oil, sugar and salt to our food than we need. This can easily be remedied by adding herbs and spices to transform the flavor of your food without all the added calories and over consumption of unhealthy additives.

Herbs and spices like Turmeric and Sage have health benefits that come from their anti-inflammatory components and are chock-full of anti-oxidants so you can add to your health by adding some spice into your life.

If you're not sure which spices work best, try one of our award winning curry pastes or little bites.
