How To Kick Start your New Year with Healthy Food Trends

Here at Fiorelli, we’re in a full new year's health kick. Out with the luxury chocolate boxes and in with the (healthier) courgette cake. Did somebody say 22 day vegan diet? Bring it on. Wheatgrass shots? We’ll take 6. Join us as we embrace this year’s healthiest food trends in a bid to get fit, live clean and start 2014 as we mean to go on.

22 Day Vegan Challenge

With BeyoncĂ© and Jay-Z championing the 22 Day Vegan Challenge, we’re intrigued. The challenge to wave goodbye to meat, fish and dairy for 22 days was recently introduced by exercise expert Marco Borges who believes it takes at least 3 weeks to break through and get used to a new habit.

Eating a plant based diet might sound limiting, but we’ve been amazed at the variety of delicious vegan recipes out there, from stuffed avocado salads to triple berry smoothies and sundried tomato hummus, we can’t wait to try the challenge.

Wheatgrass was a popular morning-after drink choice at UK music festivals last summer. One 30ml shot of this plant super food is believed to contain up to 1kg worth of fruit and vegetables- ideal for beating a hangover! With immune boosting and detoxing benefits, it’s easy to see why wheatgrass is the most hotly tipped drink for 2014.

Beetroot Cake

Not ones to turn down a slice of Victoria sponge or red velvet, we’ve been looking at how to get our cake fix, the healthy way. Although it contains a small amount of dark chocolate, this Chocolate and Beetroot cake recipe is so tempting and a great healthy alternative to the usually calorific chocolate cake. After all, you’ve got to treat yourself every now and again, right?
