Here are our top 5 foodie New Year’s resolutions and how we can help you to keep them! Be realistic – don’t try and change everything on Monday. Small changes are the solution.
After tonight the chances are you will be thinking about cutting back on the alcohol and rich food that you may have been overindulging in (if you are anything like us!). We are not talking about detoxing in the terms of drinking herbal teas only for a week or purchasing expensive products – the body is capable of detoxing on it’s own. We are simply suggesting giving the body a little break to catch up with the back log of the festive period by adding fresh vegetables and fruit to your diet and drinking at least 2 litres of water a day.
Try avoiding the following in your diet for at least a few days to give your body a break it needs:
Sugar (not only in cakes, but bread, sauces and many others)
Simple small changes:
Eat more fresh fruit and vegetables
Add fibre to your diet (found in avocado, corn, chickpeas, many beans, brown rice, pears and many others)
Give your liver a helping hand in cleansing itself by eating foods such as garlic, beetroot, leafy greens, lemon and turmeric.
Drink 1.5l to 2l water a day and try and get your 8 hours sleep!
Learn some new and exciting recipes
You may be an accomplished cook, or you may be a beginner. Whatever level you are at there is always room to learn something new in the kitchen. Here at the Devilled Egg we are passionate about helping people to enjoy themselves in the kitchen.
Master a different cuisine
Have you been to a Thai, Japanese, Italian or Indian restaurant and wanted to know how they create their dishes? Throughout 2018 we will be running a series of courses designed to introduce you to the foundations of cuisines from around the world. Our courses will teach you some traditional and authentic recipes for you to try for yourself.
Understand food intolerances
More and more people are living with an intolerance to food groups such as gluten and lactose. Here at the Devilled Egg we understand that this can be frustrating. Which is why we have devised courses to help people to understand their food intolerance and cook foods and substitutes that mean you don’t feel like you are missing out. Our gluten free bakery course is a great way to learn how to cook some delicious cakes and other bakes without gluten. While our dairy free course teaches you how to work wonders with substitutes such as tofu and other soya produce.
Learn a new skill
Confident cooking is all about skills. This year we are concentrating on helping people to learn a selection of vital kitchen skills including; knife skills, bread making, fish filleting, making sauces and carving. With our video tutorials, you can choose what you want to learn and build your skills step by step.
Enjoy yourselves this weekend, and remember your foodie New Year’s resolutions. Happy New Year!
