Three Ways to Help Keep yourself Healthy – Including the Best ‘Fakeaway’ Recipes!

Ever since having children, I’ve spent so much time worrying about my health. My girls are the most important thing in my life and so keeping my body healthy, in order to be at my best for them is so important. Pre-children I would burn the candle at both ends and think nothing of it. These days I try my hardest to look after myself in every way, with the hope of passing on the same habits to the girls!

There are so many ways to help keep yourself healthy, some more complex than others. Making just a few simple changes to your life though, can mean the difference between feeling sluggish and in need of a boost, to feeling on top of the world!

Not only will exercising more help keep you physically healthy, it also releases endorphins helping to keep your mind healthy too.

Avoid drinking too much alcohol –

I’m not saying you should never enjoy a drink, but being aware of how much you alcohol you consume and taking steps to cut back is a sure-fire way to improve your health. Truth be told alcohol just isn’t good for us, so the less we drink the better in the long the run. Many serious health condition including breast cancer have been linked to alcohol intake, so it’s worth keeping a check on how many units you drink and how regularly this happens.

Eat as healthy foods more often –

So for me watching what I eat isn’t always that easy. There are ways to trick ourselves into eating tasty food that is good for us at the same time, enter the ‘Fakeaway’!

  1. Great idea to do Fakeaway recipes! I’ll admit I usually rather have the real thing when it comes to takeaway. I’m also on a high fat diet, which isn’t a bad one for keeping food tasty

  2. Good tips, I’m definitely limiting my wine intake this year as it goes straight to my waist! My kids love ‘fakeaway’ food, we gave my son a brilliant recipe book for Christmas filled with them and the kids have been eagerly cooking with it, a mini break for me too! #Blogstravaganza

  3. I don’t think I do too badly in the eating healthy department but I fail miserably at exercises especially in the winter. Home exercises sound a good idea.

  4. Love the idea of Fakesway recipes! Anything to make meals more interesting! I think a lot of parents are guilty of not looking after themselves so great tips here! #blogstravaganza

  5. Homemade doner kebabs? Yes, please! I’ve really been trying lately to be more mindful about the food I’m eating, and I’m excited to try new recipes. #blogstravaganza

  6. My wife and I do the fake away at home with the kids and they love it because they can make their own pizzas etc. for us it’s about “swap it don’t stop it”. Small changes add up to big results. Thanks for sharing.
