Picking the Ripe Fruits
Getting the most out of eating healthily starts with eating the right foods and getting the right nutrients. This becomes even tastier when you opt for fruit and vegetables which are in season and offer more than just a healthy eating experience!
There are a few fruits and vegetables which make up the staple of eating healthy year round. Bananas and pomegranates are great source of energy and essential vitamins and remain in season at all times. Vegetables offering the same 365 health boost are Pak Choi, cabbage and spring onions, to name but a few.
Beyond this, there are fruits and vegetables which are best served at certain times of the year. A juicy, vitamin C and immune boosting orange is great for the opening three months of the year, as are apples, sprouts (if you're struggling to shake that Christmas feeling), leeks, lemons and the perfect accompaniment to any meal - sweet potato!
At Fruit4London we buy your fruit on the day we deliver it to ensure its ripe and ready to eat! We also have an in season fruit each month - which you can keep up to date with here.
Getting fruity in the office doesn't have to be reserved for after a bottle grapes at the Christmas party!
Why not set targets with work colleagues, exercise together and spend an evening each week discussing your favourite meals, healthy tips and current progress. To ensure you're getting your fruity fix for the week we can also deliver direct to your office.
ECO friendly does it!
So the fruit is in place and the group of healthy workplace eaters is coming on nicely, what next? You'll need an exercise plan!
At Fruit4London we pride ourselves on being eco-friendly and you'll often see us zoom past on one our bicycles delivering fruit, for locations a little further away we use electric vans - without a healthy planet there might not be any lovely fruit left!
Why not join us on the road? Cycling to work might seem daunting at first, but it is a very rewarding way of getting to the office (and back)! There's more room than sitting squashed like an old tomato on the train and the only price increase you're in for is when you decide to upgrade your bike as you get a taste for the road and plan a bike trip for later in the year.
Other options could be walking the school run, running between the stations and work/home or setting out a well developed exercise plan with a professional.
