Top 5: 10-a-day tips

Share this article:

When we first read the recent news about increasing our 5-a-day to 10-a-day, to be honest, we got a bit of a shock!
But after giving it some thought, getting in your ten portions isn’t as daunting as it sounds...

Here’s our top 5:

  • Start drinking vegetable based juices

Slurping up a veggie based juice in the morning is not only a great way to start fresh, but you can get 3 of your hits in before you’ve even started work. The best thing about juicing, is throwing in whatever you fancy! Carrots, Kale, cucumber or even some beetroot – it’s up to you!

  • Swap some carbs

Replace your carbs for great tasting, nutrient rich vegetables that complement your dinners just perfectly. Try cauliflower rice instead of white rice, or try spiralized courgetti instead of pasta.

  • Boost your daily breakfasts

We love breakfast, especially if its porridge or contains anything with eggs! Boost up your porridge with fresh berries, carrots shavings, zucchini or anything else that takes your fancy. Eggs also go down nicely when they’re stacked with mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach…it all counts!

  • Don’t doubt the humble stir fry

After a long day in the office, cooking a tasty nutritious meal is sometimes easier said than done, but a stir fry is a great go to! Quick, simple & veg packed, you’ll be hitting your 10-a-day in no time. Some of our favourite stir fry veggies include edamame beans, peppers, broccoli and green beans.

  • Snacks & Desserts

If you’re anything like us, when the clock strikes 3pm we’re immediately craving an afternoon munch. We love some fresh veg sticks dipped in hummus, or a crunchy apple with some nut butter!
And to settle that post dinner sweet tooth? We’re loving the recipes below which can help you hit the final 10 before the end of the day.
