Lockdown has meant irregular schedules, extra snacking opportunities and changes to working routines. So, as restrictions slowly begin slowly easing, it's important to consider exactly how we can restore rhythm and regularity into our lives and particularly our diets in the coming weeks and months.
These are the top four tips to get you started:
Not every meal has to be an event but can be simple - that will save time on preparation.
Switch your meals around
For some of us, it can be a good idea to practice intermittent fasting by skipping your first or last meal of the day.
Get creative with leftovers
It's necessary to cook every meal from scratch, make a bit extra and you save time and effort on the next one.
There's no time like the present to try out some new recipes. It is often the way the food is cooked that makes a difference to our preference for it, and with vegetables being the food group that offers the widest range of nutrients, it is one group you want to increase intake of at every opportunity.
