February. Isn’t it great getting January out the way? It was a crazy busy month for me and now I’m paying the price with a horrible cold. In a bid to delay the onset of the cold (it’s been lurking for about two weeks) and to eat more fruit & veg, I’ve been looking for ways to make fruit and veg more exciting. I’m a really fussy eater, made worse by being vegetarian. You’d think being vegetarian would mean I eat plenty of vegetables. Alas, this is not the case. Sadly, there are no vegetables in fizzy cola bottles. And I’m lazy and hate cooking (Hello Dominos!). I was feeling really sluggish, so thought I should try eating like a grown up for a change. I’ve started reading Laura’s blog, Keeping Healthy Getting Stylish and it’s full of great healthy eating tips and I noticed that she’d eaten one of these.

nakd bars

I am in love with these nakd bars and the coco delight and berry cheeky flavours are my favourite. They are a great way for me to eat more fruit (one bar counts as your one of your five a day) and they’re made from natural ingredients (so no added sugar). I could eat them all day long, but limit myself to one a day, max. I’ve also been eating massive salads and more fresh fruit, as well as limiting my junk food intake (haven’t eaten any cola bottles in nearly 2 weeks!). As I’ve been poorly, I haven’t yet noticed a change to my energy levels, but it can’t hurt right? I was also going to start exercising again this week, but needing to blow my nose every five minutes has put an end to that. (Did I say that I’ve been ill?!)

Do you manage to eat your five a day? I’d love to hear any healthy eating tips you might have. I need all the help I can get!
