Healthy living made easy

We recently read that one in five people chose to diet and eat healthily as their New Year’s Resolution on January 1st. However, statistics have shown that the majority apparently broke their resolution within 9 days, whoops… If you’re one of the many that cracked, do not fear, Hunters of Helmsley is here!

With the treats we have in store, healthy eating needn’t be a bind. We have snacks, drinks and meal ideas to get you back on track and loving a very healthy lifestyle. So, what are we waiting for? It’s time to crank up the spiralizer, dust off those old trainers and prepare to post every meal we eat onto Instagram.

We’ll start with something to quench a thirst and keep you going. We have a huge range of teas that are great for providing vitamins and minerals whilst keeping you hydrated. We’re loving Tea Pigs, Taylors of Harrogate and Cartwright and Butler to name only a few alongside our own delicious blends ranging from the herbal to the ever so fruity.

Enjoy a light dinner or lunch of a warming bowl of Yorkshire Provender soup. Many are gluten free with delectable flavours including beetroot with horseradish, carrot and butternut, chicken and butternut and even vegan Moroccan vegetable tagine, yum! Our Ian Taylor free-range fresh farm eggs could be the perfect snack when boiled and served with spinach on the go, or as a base to lots of fab recipes. Whip up a vegetable filled omelette, scrambled eggs on wholemeal toast or flour-free banana pancakes using egg whites. If you’re missing a great British fry up, swap it for a satisfying brunch of poached eggs and Staal Smokehouse smoked salmon, full of good fats.

Those feeling conscious of supermarket nasties will enjoy taking to the kitchen to make their own bread whilst simultaneously filling their homes with that unmistakable smell. Use Wessex Mill’s wholemeal rye flour, Side Oven’s stoneground organic wholemeal or Biona’s coconut flour as the base to a brilliant bake. That way you know exactly what you’re eating and can be sure that sugar hasn’t snuck its way in. Alongside bread, a healthier option to satisfy a savoury craving comes in the form of Scrubbys vegetable crisps. These crunchy creations are gluten free and offer fewer calories without sacrificing taste - we love the four vegetable blend.

If you’re stocking up on lunchtime salad ingredients, our Brianna’s home style dressing is an absolute must. Options in-store include poppy, Dijon honey mustard and creamy blue cheese for those seeking something indulgent on top of all that goodness. For a tangy treat, Little Doone’s sweet balsamic vinegar is just perfect drizzled onto ripe vine tomatoes. If you want to add some pizazz to your meal enjoy venison steaks. Venison has the highest protein and lowest cholesterol count of any mainstream meat and is also extremely sustainable, win win!

So even if you did fall off the healthy eating wagon in January, it’s never too late to get back on track!
