We Asked A Nutritionist How We Can Get On Top Of Our Health

Winter wellness, sorted.

By Tamille Head | 28th June 2018

 

As a certified holistic health coach, Lee Holmes knows how difficult it can be for busy women to stay on top of their health & wellness. She has made it her mission to educate people on how to care for themselves through a nourishing and wholesome diet. This is why she has partnered with The Good Sort®!

The Good Sort® is an all-natural Go-To Meal™ or snack blended with hand-picked, high-quality ingredients including 14 organic vitamins and minerals, patented probiotics, prebiotic fibre, digestive enzymes and MCT, that target specific health benefits for women to balance your body and keep you energised for longer.

Passionate about health and wellness, Lee walked us through her daily routine and shared her easy-to-implement tips on how to live a healthier and more wholesome life. Plus, we put her tips to the test and overhauled our diet with her favourite shakes and snacks from The Good Sort®! This is what we learned.

Talk me through your daily food and exercise regime?
Being active is something that I always try and incorporate into my day, rain, hail and shine. I start my morning nice and early with a walk. Walking helps clear my mind and improves my overall wellbeing, plus it’s the easiest and cheapest form of exercise there is. Finding the right exercise for you – whether it’s sweating it out at the gym, finding your inner zen in the yoga studio, swimming at the beach or strolling in the park can be fun and inspiring! Find what works for you and stick to it – you’ll feel all the better for it.

For breakfast, I like The Good Sort® Plant based Naked! flavour blended with an assortment of berries. That’s my go-to most mornings when I have a bunch of things to do. Mid-morning, I’ll probably have a chai tea. For lunch, I like to try different things but lately, in winter I’ve been making lots of slow-roasted veggies and turning them into soups with garlic and prebiotic vegetables to boost my immunity. In the afternoon, I like to have a half serve of The Good Sort® (Coffee! or Vanilla! flavour). It always gives me a little pep up! I like to end the day with something warm and nourishing like a soup or a stew.

As a holistic food and nutrition coach, what made you so keen to get on board as a spokesperson?
I see a lot of people every day who are stuck in a diet rut. I think once you make that mental shift and decide it’s not about weight loss and more about optimum health your body will respond naturally. Wellness is really not about deprivation or punishment. It’s about awareness and the power to choose a lifestyle with good foods and exercise that feels right for you. That’s what I love about The Good Sort®. They understand that there’s no one right diet for everyone and what works for one person may not work for the next. Their nutritional shakes focus uniquely on you and gaining better health, balance, instincts, and self-confidence.

How have you added The Good Sort® into your wellness plan and how has it affected you?
Coming from the busy background that I do, being a full-time worker and mother, I understand many of us are time-poor and work-orientated. I’ve included The Good Sort® in my morning routine because it’s a convenient Go-To Meal™ or snack that’s packed with key organic vitamins and minerals and high-quality ingredients like probiotics and digestive enzymes. These are the kinds of nutrients that women need on a daily basis to help balance their bodies and keep them energised. The other good news is that it’s a simple, all-natural solution for women on the go!

Our Style Trial Using The Good Sort®

Keen to give Lee’s tips a go, we loaded up on the complete The Good Sort® range and added them to our routine for a week to see how it made us feel. From the plant-based Wildberry! flavour mixed with coconut milk to the protein-rich Banana! flavour, there’s a lot to love about these little sachets.

First things first, if you’ve never tried nutritional shakes, you’ll be seriously impressed with how easy it is to add to your routine when you most need a boost! In easy-to-use dual sachets that come in either a full meal or snack size, you can just rip it open, shake and go. For breakfast, try blending the Naked! sachet with your favourite fruits to supercharge your morning with added nutritional goodness, digestive enzymes and prebiotic fibre. For a quick afternoon snack that will keep you going until dinner, half a serve of the Chocolate! is the perfect sweet treat for when you’re sitting at your desk powering through work.

Will we use it again? For sure! Whether you commit to the full set or just want some on hand to make quick, healthy meals just that little bit easier, they really are the easiest way to get some added nutritional goodness every single day. If you want to try them for yourself check out the full range on their website here.
