It’s the start of a new year, which for many means setting new resolutions and challenges! A common resolution is to eat healthier and change your diet, with many of us likely to be undertaking the Veganuary challenge this year. While changing your eating habits can be difficult, there are plenty of helpful books and cooking equipment available to help you stick to your resolution, as well as many restaurants that are considerate of different dietary requirements.
We’ve listed our top five ways make eating healthy easier this New Year, all available with a One4all Gift Card!
Home Made Meals
An easy way to start the new year eating off right is by investing in a cookbook. A well-stocked cookbook will help to simplify cooking and with plenty of healthy and tasty recipes, you’ll be sure to find a number of go to dishes you can use throughout the year. This book by Jamie Oliver from WH Smith has the added bonus of being vegetarian so it’s perfect for anyone who has decided to go meat free this year.

Make meal prep easy by investing in a new slow cooker! With the option to make hundreds of delicious dishes, a slow cooker, like this Russell Hobbs one from John Lewis, is ideal for whipping up a delicious meal with minimal work. Come home from a long day with dinner ready to be served, so you can spend your evening relaxing on the sofa and not in the kitchen.
