What we eat and drink can have a large impact on our body. STAY HYDRATED – it might seem simple but it’s a habit that is often forgotten. ‘Drinking a large glass of water as soon as you wake up is a good way to replenish your body with the hydration that has been lost overnight’ says Kim.
EAT HEALTHILY – superfoods may have taken centre stage within wellness, but it’s important to remember that not one single superfood will compensate for unhealthy habits. Make sure to get into a good routine of consuming your 5-a-day, an easier way to achieve this is through liquids such a nourishing soups and smoothies. A healthy soup or smoothie will contain up to 3 of your 5 a day and is quick and easy for those who are on the go. If you are looking for your health kick during your visit to Gleneagles be sure to visit the Garden Cafe where you can find anything from superfood salads, smoothies the colour of the rainbow and hearty soups.
When cooking at home try and include superfoods in some of your own recipes, it needn’t be powders or supplements you don’t understand. Easily accessible ingredients and foods such as citric acid, berries, ginger, garlic and turmeric combined with black pepper are great. Studies have shown that combining multiple ingredients together can aid absorption into the 14 body resulting in increased health benefits.
