Being a “busy person” has become the norm.
Places to go, people see, things to do, a miriad of things to juggle. It sometimes feels like there's barely enough time in the day to get the basics done, let alone make time to do all those extra things you told yourself or your loved ones. For those who are busy, it's no surprise that eating well can become a struggle. However, the importance of good food cannot be overstated, the power of nutritious meal can leave you feeling energised, recharged and ready for the next busy thing that you need to crack on with… even if that’s catching up on the latest episode of the last of us.
Eating well is crucial for maintaining good health and energy levels, and if you’re running from pillar to post, then this is particularly important, as you want to be able to perform at your best, both mentally and physically.
Whenever I’m hungry and want something quickly, I’m always trying to think, what can I eat that’s healthy, delicious and quick! Finding time to prepare something either takes planning, and when life is hectic, it’s easy to default to whatever's available and quick, ditching health, and then delicious in that order. It can be tempting to rely on fast food or processed meals, which are often high in calories, sugar, and fat, these can most definitely take their toll on the body over time.
Eating well is all about balance, and knowing how to chose the right foods helps. Whole foods, such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, are vitamin rich and contain plenty of fiber. Along with lean protein sources, like legumes or lentil these provide the balance of nutrients and energy you need to stay healthy and focused. It helps to promote a healthy gut biome which is amazing for body and mind!
Making the effort to eat well can help to keep you energized and focused as well as reduce your risk of chronic diseases. Whether you're a parent, a professional, or just someone with a lot on their plate, prioritising good food will only ever do you good.
Diets and good nutrition can be a minefield, that said Michael Pollan’s simple approach really resonates with me… “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” 💚
Majahma’s meals are packed with wholefoods, fresh seasonal veg, wholegrains and lentils, are easy to heat, and can be ready to go in a matter of minutes. All the goodness with none of the meal prep. Win. Every meal feels indulgent and satisfying, and if you have any leftovers, they make great, quick lunches, or can add some extra schlapp to a breakfast… If you haven't had dal on toast, you haven't lived. 😂 and if you haven't tried your first Majahma yet.. what you waiting for!? 😊
