Practice Mindful Eating

If you’re someone who likes to scroll through Instagram or smash out emails while you’re eating, it could be sabotaging your digestion. During mealtimes, put down your phone, shut your laptop and focus on the delicious food in front of you.

When you’re distracted from your food, you miss out on sensory cues like the smell, taste, and sight of your food. These cues play a crucial role in stimulating your digestion to do its job! Plus, when you’re not paying close attention, you’re more likely to overeat and chew poorly – potentially leading to digestive issues and weight gain.

Chopsticks are a really great tool to help you practice patience and in turn, this can help with mindful eating too. Our sustainable chopsticks are available in our Reusable Cutlery Sets, perfect for on-the-go. 


Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Water is essential for good health. Not only can it help increase energy and relieve fatigue, but it can also help flush out toxins, regulate temperature, improve skin complexion, maintain regularity, and even combat cravings. 

Did you know that your body’s signs of hunger and thirst are pretty much the same? Thirst occurs when your body needs water. When you don’t drink enough water, your body receives mixed signals on hunger, so your body tells you to eat when what you really need is liquid intake. Water bottles are really great for encouraging water intake and we recommend investing in a reusable one.

To minimise exposure to contaminants in your drinking water, it’s a good idea to invest in a good-quality water filter, particularly if your home has lead pipes or brass faucets.

Eat More Wholefoods

A healthy diet filled with unprocessed, plant-based wholefoods rich in fibre, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals may help you experience more energy, better sleep and brighter skin. The simplest rule is to aim for five cups of vegetables a day – three cups 'above the ground' such as green leafy vegetables and two cups 'below the ground' such as root vegetables. 

Make sure to include a healthy fat source in every meal. This could be avocado, nut butter, olive oil or tahini dressing, which ensures you are absorbing vitamins A, D, E and K. These fat-soluble vitamins need fat to be properly absorbed by the body. Complete your meal with a protein source – ideally combining legumes and grains to obtain all the essential amino acids. This could be lentils, rice, beans, seeds, or quinoa. Remember to wash your fruit and veggies! Koala Eco's Natural Fruit and Vegetable Wash removes residual pesticides, oils, waxes, agricultural chemicals and leaves no aftertaste.

Physical activity isn’t just good for your body – it’s good for your mind too.

When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins. These chemicals may leave you feeling happier and more relaxed! Even something as simple as a daily walk around the block or a quick 15-minute workout can do wonders for your mood...not to mention your waistline. Physical activity helps increase blood flow to the digestive organs. It also strengthens the muscles in your digestive tract to help with bowel movements and may also combat stress.

Snack Smarter

Snacking often gets a bad rap but done right, it can actually be a great way to get a wider range of foods into your diet. Rather than being limited to three main meals, try spreading out your food into smaller, more frequent meals. This allows more food and more variety, leading to fewer pesky cravings! Try ensure each snack has a balance of carbs, healthy fats, and protein.

Smoothies are an easy and convenient way to get an extra hit of nutrients into your day. Adding a high-quality plant-based protein powder to your smoothie will help make your smoothie more filling, so you’ll stay satisfied longer. Just be sure to choose a protein with low/no sugar and clean ingredients.

Amazonia’s Raw Protein Slim & Tone is designed to support a healthy metabolism, help reduce cravings and support detoxification in the body. This formula helps promote fat-burning and aids digestion. It’ll cure your sweet cravings.
