Don’t wait un­til Jan­uary comes around again to re­vamp your diet. Make some mid-year mod­i­fi­ca­tions to en­sure sure you’re get­ting all the right nutri­ents to stay healthy through the rest of the year.

It’s also a good time to get rid of any nas­ties in your diet.

MY TOP TIPS FOR A DIET RE­VAMP ARE:

Top up your daily fruit and veg­etable in­take Stock up on whole­grain or multi-grain prod­ucts Use olive oil in small amounts daily Add in beans, nuts, legumes and seeds to your daily diet Sea­sonal meals with fresh herbs and spices Add pro­bi­otic foods in your diet such as kom­bucha, ke­fir, pick­les, sauerkraut, nat­u­ral yo­ghurt Aim for two serves of oily fish (150g each) a week Get your two litres of wa­ter a day Cut out white bread, pasta or rice Throw out pro­cessed foods like pack­ets of bis­cuits, cakes or sauces Throw out any­thing with a long list of ad­di­tives and preser­va­tives Throw out bat­tered or crumbed frozen meats or poul­try Throw out any jars or cans that have been open longer than a week Throw out soft drinks, cor­dial or fruit juices

EM­BRACE ALL THE DE­LI­CIOUS, HEALTHY IN-SEA­SON FOOD AT THE MO­MENT AND TRY NEW MEALS AND RECIPES
