  1. 1. Have a variety of sources of healthy fats

    Alternate between olive oil and coconut oil in your wok pan or spread Cocos+Olive+Red Palm oil on your sandwich once in a while.
  2. Research has shown that consuming healthy fats improves the absorption of vitamins and minerals. In addition, it prevents carbohydrates from causing extreme sugar highs-and-lows. Healthy fats are a must in a healthy kitchen. So why do we need to alternate? Each extra virgin oil offers something unique; Olive oil is rich in squalene, coconut oil is a source of lauric acid and red palm oil provides vitamin E and carotenes.

  4. 2. Use different spices to add flavour

Regardless of your diet, your body is best served by variety.

Eating the same healthy salad each day can also cause nutritional shortages. A simple solution is to season your salad a little differently each day. Mix 1 to 2 teaspoons of a Botanico-mix with 1 to 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and you will have a deliciously healthy dressing every time with little to no effort.

  1. 3. Remember that sea vegetables are nutritious and tasty

The time where fish and sea vegetables were only for the poor is in the past.

The sea is making its comeback and this time in the form of seaweeds. Because this is true fish food (not the plastic bags that are often found in whale stomachs). Seaweeds are a good source of magnesium and iodine, two minerals which most of us – even with a healthy diet – are lacking.

  1. 4. Replace some of your regular flour with coconut flour

Whether you are completely gluten-free or not, you will always benefit from eating coconut flour.

Coconut flour is in fact a naturally gluten-free source of insoluble fibre. Insoluble fibres stimulate the intestinal transit. And that’s great for the disposal of waste. Use coconut flour instead of regular flour. Replace 10 to 15% of the regular flour in your baking or bread recipes and add just as much water. You can also simply add a teaspoon of coconut flour to your cereals or yoghurt, to start your day right.

  1. 5. Make your own healthy snacks

The occasional unhealthy snack will not drastically impact your immune system.

But many small pieces can make a big mountain. Our message is to make choosing healthy snacks a part of your regular routine. And since the ‘healthy snacks’ available at the supermarkets or stores are not always what we’re looking for, why not make the snacks ourselves? A dehydrator is an investment that pays for itself. For everyone in your family. What do you think of homemade fruit gums, vegetable chips, nuts and sprouted seeds?
