A new segment to the blog this year will be a journey to health. Readers of The Style Guide Blog will know that last year I made a promise to myself to try and improve my health, both body and mind, though unfortunately I had some setbacks. This year I am back on track and actively trying to stay positive in regards to changing my lifestyle.
A few years ago I went on a Slimming World journey where I lost 11 stone and though, at the time, I felt great doing it I didn't get the results I wanted. It works to drop weight fast but it's not particularly well aimed at nutrition or health benefits. This year I'm beginning a journey to improve my lifestyle and my health. I want to find out if you can really eat yourself better.
With that in mind I have devised my own eating plan and I hope to keep you updated on my progress as well as recipes to try, places to buy good products and some product reviews aimed at healthy living.
First up in this new series we have MuscleFood, a fantastic company that offer premium nutritional foods that you can order from home.
At the start of the year MuscleFood launched a New Year Extra Lean Meat selection hamper which promised a staggering saving of just over £70. Usually priced at £125.52, it was on offer for £55. After having a look through what was included in the hamper and weighing up the price against my local butcher (and the meat itself), it seemed far too good an opportunity to pass up.
2 x 2.5kg premium chicken breast fillets (usually works out at around 24 individual chicken breasts)
2 x grass fed rump steaks
2 x grass fed sirloin steaks
2 x free range hache steaks
2 x peri peri hache steaks
2 x 400g free range diced steak
2 x 400g extra lean steak mince
2 x extra lean steak burgers
2 x lean turkey hache steaks
6 x chicken breast sausages
12 x giant free range lean meatballs
30g pack of grillsteak seasoning
Postage was priced at a reasonable £3.95 and my order arrived today (within one week of ordering), vacuum packed and sealed for freshness and the first thing I couldn't help but notice was both the quality and the size of each product. This order will easily keep our family going for at least a few weeks.
If you want to avail of this offer I would move quickly! Head to www.musclefood.com and add the New Year Extra Lean Selection to your basket, at checkout you just need to enter the code (NEWYEAR) for the saving to be added to your order. You can pay via paypal which I found extremely handy.
With your order you'll also receive some really fantastic coupons and secret codes that have already ensured my future custom. Considering MuscleFood cover everything from your protein needs (protein powders, protein pizza and protein snack bars etc) to nutritional foods such as your fresh fruit and veg, it's a handy website to know about.
So I'm all set and on my way to a healthy body, healthy mind. I feel determined and my lifestyle change is coming from a place of positivity and I look forward to sharing my journey with you!
