With such busy lifestyles it is easy to forget that putting natural fresh foods and drinks into our body is important to stay healthy and energised. Then in the new year we often get caught up in the latest diet craze which often only help in the short term.

Ideally we should be eating a clean diet for life and I am a going to show you how following a 7 day plan can easily be repeated for everyday eating, so that you don’t get obsessed with diets and can incorporate all your treats too.

When changing to a clean eating diet there are certain rules to follow to make the transition easier as follows:

RELATED: RECOMMENDED PLANS FOR YOU
Day 1 Focus on water as our body is 70% water, which helps us absorb nutrients , remove toxins and stay hydrated and energised. Try to avoid alcohol for 1 week then alternate alcohol with water and have at least 2 free alcohol days.

Day 2 Increase fibre to support your digestion so include 2 to portions daily from oats, brown rice or quinoa and wholemeal seeded pitta bread.

Day 3 Eat 2 portions of greens daily to support the liver. Spinach, broccoli, kale, watercress rocket / cabbage 2 portions of fruit daily plus 1 orange vegetable: carrots/sweet potatoes.

Day 4 Add more protein at breakfast and lunch for fullness and concentration and to help reduce binging on sweet foods.

Day 5  Add in healthy fats from nuts and seeds for heart and joint health at least 5 days a week. The other 2 days eat oily fish or flaxseed oil for vegetarians

Day 6 Have one vegan day  ie no meat, fish eggs or cheese (beans lentils, nuts, seeds ok)

Day 7  Make healthy versions of desserts and treat wine as a dessert !
