2020 being a not so great year for us – with diseases floating in the air, our eating habits all over the place and physical movement completely restricted… Let’s create and document one habit a day!

Before you step in to a supermarket, make sure you have your meal and your stomach is full. This will ensure you don’t purchase unnecessary junk.
HABIT NUMBER 3
Snack on veggies and seasonal fruit. Munch on fruit to satiate your sweet tooth and veggies with salt and pepper to satiate your salty cravings.

Watch what you eat!
Mentally know your make up of macros (protein, carb and fat) on the plate. Ensure your plate has a healthy combination of the same.
