Veganuary may be coming to an end, but the choice to eat healthily and make conscious food choices should continue all year round. Let’s not just limit our healthy habits to a month, let’s make it a lifestyle!
With the end of January fast approaching and you still haven’t started your new year resolutions, do not worry, here at Chopped we have you covered, we know everyone has a busy lifestyle and can’t always make those early morning gym sessions but with just an hour of walking or any form of exercise a day thrown in with a handful of fruit/veg is enough to compensate on your cheat day.
Here are some small everyday tips to help you enjoy a healthier lifestyle!
- Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables
