Get ready for January: Healthy eating, incoming
Preempt your customers’ New Year’s Resolutions with Eden Farm Hulley’s
The start of the new year often sees customers aiming to get fitter and healthier. Crash diets are becoming a thing of the past, however; as research confirms they don’t work effectively for most people, instead, more and more folks are aiming to make significant changes to their lifestyles in order to lose weight. You can help them with their goals by stocking up on great products that’ll make low calorie mealtimes delicious and snacking more sustainable. Here are our top tips on what to buy in this January.
Our new website is easy to navigate, and you can look at the chilled and fresh food and drink we offer really easily. These are top of our list; when people go shopping in January, they’re thinking about cooking from scratch. Pick up lovely fresh fruit and veg to get people inspired when it comes to cooking, and grab healthy, high protein sandwich fillers such as sliced chicken and turkey.
Breakfast smoothies are a hugely popular at-home option when healthy eating kicks come to call. Frozen fruit packs are an essential for that; we recommend sliced apples, mixed berries as well as individual options of frozen blueberries, raspberries and strawberries. Customers can then whizz them up with their choice of juice, milk or plant milk. Cater to those dieters who can’t be bothered to blend, too; we really like Naked’s range of pre-made smoothies.
Many customers will reduce their meat intake in January as part of their health efforts, as research has shown that vegetarianism is really good for you. Luckily, we have lots of great vegetarian meals, as well as products that can replace meat in classic recipes such as spaghetti bolognese, casseroles or chilli con carne. Falafels and other pulse-based mains are also popular when people go veggie.
Fish & meat
Lean meat and carefully sourced fish dishes are also on the menu in January. Creative cooks will love the options that frozen prawns provide, while those strapped for time will be delighted by our range of fish ready meals. When it comes to meat, chicken sausages are having a massive surge in popularity, due to the fact they’re viewed as healthier and less fatty than pork. Elsewhere, cooking with chicken fillets and drumsticks is eternally popular, because they’re healthy, lean and tasty; a winning combination.
Snacking can be many customers’ downfalls when it comes to sticking to their healthy eating goals, but you can help them out with high protein, low-calorie choices such as beef jerky or individually portioned cooked chicken bites.
