Wellbeing in the Workplace
A new year is here and everyone seems to be on the January bandwagon - Veganuary, no-meat Monday's and of course, the gyms are raking it in with new membership sign-ups! This is a great opportunity for us and will make a huge difference in people's personal wellbeing, making them feel better both physically and mentally for so many reasons. But alongside healthier cooking at home and all those miles on the treadmill, we still really need to consider our wellbeing in the workplace.

How do I become a gym bunny?
It has recently occurred to me that, although I am yet to turn 25, my body and I are not getting any younger. It’s time to start taking care of myself, and said body, for real this time. And by take care of myself, I don’t mean treat myself to whatever I want food or clothing wise, or to have a pamper night with (insert last months masks) once a week - because I do that anyway.

Banging Plant Based Alternatives to Try Out This Veganuary

It’s Veganuary and what better way to try the plant-based lifestyle than with these incredible Vegan alternatives!

Oatly Creamy Oat Fraiche; delicious spooned onto curries, on nachos, in soups, just about anything and everything. I stock my fridge up with six tubs at a time as they usually have generous expiry dates.

Violife Original Grated; the best melty cheese for topping jacket potatoes, adding into quesadillas or melting onto spaghetti bolognese. Equally tasty is the smoked version.

Oatly Barista; if you’re looking for a plant based milk that works well in coffee and tea, look no further. Oatly Barista works with frothers so there’s no need to give up lattes and cappuccinos.

Gardein Golden Fishless Filets; every vegan fish alternative I’ve tried up until this point has ended up straight in the bin. Believe me when I say Gardein have nailed it with these crispy, tender filets that recreate a chippy meal cooked at home.

Nutritional Yeast; a great source of B12, nutritional yeast gives a cheesy umami flavour to dishes. I use a few tablespoons worth in pasta sauces, ragu and lasagne.

Vego Hazelnut Spread; who knew Nutella has a more decedent rival that just happens to be vegan. Try this on a freshly toasted crumpet and thank me later.

Tyne Chease; by far the tastiest vegan option for a cheeseboard, Tyne Cheases are bursting with flavour and come in options such as truffle, Ethiopian spice, garlic and smoked. I finish a wheel of these off with the exact same delight that I used to feel when scoffing camembert with back in the day.

THIS Isn’t Bacon; I’ve searched high and low for the best vegan bacon and boy, oh boy, have I found it. Crispy, chewy, smoky and perfect in a white roll with a dollop of ketchup or brown sauce. I’m a big fan of the Waitrose Smoky Streaky Slices to go with cooked breakfasts too.
