It's the beginning the year and we are all geared up to take on all that it has instore for us. There's a great sense of momentum all around us to try new things #newyearnewme. But hashtags don't bring about change. They certainly won't give us the levels of success, health, wealth and allround greatness that we seek and feel we deserve. They can however, inspire us when the novelty of a new year wears off. Like, that period just a few weeks before Easter holidays? Yup.
So, in an attempt to capture this new energy, I decided to put down a little series entitled #MyOneAddOn just as a way to inspire the mbewu.co.za family to start shopping for healthy items one healthy item at a time. In this series, we will share easy to digest information on good nutrition, why it's important for our bodies and vitality. We will revisit the staple foods that we grew up on - the good and the bad, and introduce new ways to include better, wholesome nutrition into our everyday diet.
First, we tackle wholegrains & fibre - what are they and why do we need them. Apart from pap, white rice and samp, what other grains can we add to our grocery cupboards that are also good for us. And most importantly, how to prep these wholegrains. Search #MyOneAddOn on our Twitter feed and all our posts should pop up!
Over the next coming weeks & months, we will discuss protein alternatives (plant-based) that we can start making reguarly when we need a break from meat. We will also discuss healthy fats - what they are, and how to make them a regular feature on our diet.
Please follow us on Twitter & Instagram @mbewuproduce to keep up with regular updates, meals & snack inspiration you can recreate at home :-)
Let's together make eating well fashionable!
