New Year, New You? We’re Spoilt For Choice!

Posted on 08/01/2015 · Posted in Blog

The New Year is often the time when we evaluate our lifestyles and take an active step to change for the better. It seems that each year after the festive indulgences, there is an increased emphasis in the media about maintaining a balanced and healthy diet in January and the year ahead.

Indeed, this past week we have seen widespread press coverage featuring January New Year, New You topics including the best detoxes, diet plans, advice about abstaining and staying ‘dry’ this month to name but a few.

However, with the variety of healthy food products that are now available to us, there is no need to feel deprived and embark on the cabbage soup diet! It’s becoming easier and more convenient for Brits to stick to our New Year’s resolutions with the array of delicious options.

Palm PR represent a range of health-focused products that have innovation at their core to make healthy eating a long term lifestyle choice, from the global coconut brand Jax Coco, to superfood chocolate truffles Sweet Virtues , Scrubbys vegetable crisps and raw melon juice company Mello.

On-the-go Bircher muesli brand Cuckoo comes in five adventurous flavours including Elderflower & Cranberry, Choco Sour Cherry and Mango & Coconut. It is low GI, a source of protein and fibre and the convenient pots make it the perfect breakfast choice for people with busy lifestyles who may otherwise skip the ‘most important meal of the day’.
What’s more, Cuckoo is made with jumbo oats. An article published in The Independent this week about new Harvard School of Public Health research suggests that eating porridge and whole-grains could be key to maintaining a healthy life.

Another brand to look out for is OHSO – the chocolate that you can include in your January detox -and all year through. OHSO is actively good chocolate that contains a billion live and friendly Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium bacteria. Each OHSO bar is designed to provide the optimum daily amount of good bacteria to support digestive health and boost the immune system and the body’s natural defences.

What sets OHSO cultured chocolate apart is it is clinically proven to be three times more effective at delivering good bacteria than functional probiotic yoghurt or milk drinks. The good bacteria survives better in chocolate and is less affected by destructive stomach acidity than milk based probiotic supplements.

There is no doubt that we are witnessing consumers making more informed and educated decisions about what they are eating and we are going to see demand for innovative and healthy food options grow. It will be interesting to see how the market evolves in 2015 and what exciting products will be available to us. Watch this space!
