What we’ve learnt in a year

It’s been a big year for healthy eating. Waitrose’s annual report earlier this year proved that Britain is officially health–mad when they announced the boom in avocados and almond milk sales.

As the recipe books from the likes of Deliciously Ella, The Helmsley Sisters and Honestly Healthy are far more likely to make an appearance under your Christmas tree this year, we embrace the healthy trends from 2015 that we shall be continuing long into the New Year.

Spiralizers

Courgetti has been a buzzword this year. Seriously who eats pasta anymore?! Ok, we know it’s not the same, but since the spiralizer made making pasta shapes from vegetables so darn fun, we are kind of convinced that this is a winner for healthier dinners and packing in more vegetables, which can only be a good thing.

Nutribullets

The worst part of smoothie-making is the clean-up operation. But these beauties take away the hassle and can power through any combination of fruit or veg for delicious and healthy smoothies. Whilst, everyone seems to agree that a smoothie is good for on-to-go healthy breakfasts, we recommend this for easy blending and minimal washing-up efforts.

Avocados

Perhaps the most hash-tagged thing on Instagram since #nofilter, avocado toast has his the country in a big way. And we can only offer support for this breakfast revelation. Keep eating them and keep reaping the skin, hair and body benefits.

So we were deeply suspicious when we first read about cauliflower rice and cauliflower pizza, but it turns out this super cheap and readily available vegetable has been underrated for centuries and it’s time to celebrate it one again. It’s mild taste mean it takes on flavour really well and can mould to any consistency.  

Fat is in!

It has been the year that we embraced butter, coconut oil and full-fat yoghurt once again. It turns out eating all those fat-free energy bars was not a good idea. Oops. But we are happy to see real food coming back in, because, it’s frankly more delicious to have butter on your toast.

Sugar is out

So good news for fat but less happy news for sugar. The country has gone crazy fort sugar-free and natural sweeteners such as dates, which we can get on board with. It turns out the white stuff is the secret devil behind obesity…if only it wasn’t so addictive…

Bone broth

When the glossy manes of the Hemsley Sisters started popping up left right and centre, we were keen to know how they got so glossy. It turns out the answer is bone broth. Boil up bones and make soups that will nourish you from the inside out as they are packed with micro nutrients and vitamins.
