Fresh Life Health Tips
Tips to help you start a fresh life

Snack Smart
Snacks are a great way to refuel. Replace biscuits, cakes, chocolates and chips with fruit, rice crackers or a FreshLife Snack Pack.
Food doesn't have to be boring. Keep it interesting with wraps, rice cakes, and FreshLife dried fruit and nuts.
With the right variety of foods, like a handful of nuts, you won't need vitamin and mineral supplements.
Snacks between meals are okay if you keep them healthy. Grab a FreshLife Snack Pack or a tub of low fat yoghurt.
You're better off choosing a piece of dried fruit over a fruit drink as many drinks contain sugar and other additives.
Active Recreation
Don't like doing sports, do something like weeding the garden instead.
Shop Healthy
Fill your shopping trolley mostly with fruit, vegetables, legumes and FreshLife's dried fruits and nuts.
Incidental Exercise
Take the stairs instead of the lift or hide the remote control.
Take Short Cuts
FreshLife's dried fruits and nuts are convenient and perfect for stir-fries, steaming and baking.
Get Moving
Physical exercise doesn't have to be intense, just get off the bus one stop early.
Go Nuts
Enjoying a handful of nuts everyday can help lower your cholesterol.
Eat Your Juice
Eat FreshLife's dried fruits instead of drinking a juice, as fruit juice contains energy but little fibre.
Moderate Portions
Keep portion sizes reasonable, as it's easier to eat foods you want and stay healthy.

Shopping Lists
Shopping tips to help you start a fresh life

Shopping for healthy food is much easier if you start with the right shopping list. And a well-stocked cupboard makes it easy to cook nutritious meals that are quick and delicious.

Here are some tips to help you make healthy choices when you go grocery shopping:

o Make fruits and vegetables the largest part of your shopping list.
o Make sure your grain and cereal products are made from whole grains and not from refined flours.
o Healthy protein choices should consist mostly of fish, poultry, lean meats and nuts.
o Keep beverages simple. Water, low fat milk, juices and herbal teas make good choices.
o Healthy dairy products include low fat: milk, yogurt and cheese.
o Watch dressings, cooking oils and condiments, as they can be sneaky sources of sugar and fat.
o Dried foods are a convenient way to keep fruits and vegetables on hand.
o Choose dried fruits, healthy nuts, seeds and whole grain crackers for snacks.

Stress-buster Ideas
Stress-busting ideas that'll help you start a fresh life.

Stress is your body's reaction to the demands placed upon it. And it can become a problem when too much is placed on the body. This can result in a range of health problems including headaches, stomach upsets, high blood pressure, and even stroke or heart disease.

Here are some healthy tips and techniques to help you beat stress:

Take a nap
Recharge your batteries with a little down time.
Get a massage
Visit a professional or ask someone to give you an impromptu neck and shoulder rub.
Express yourself
Divert your energies into something creative.
Have a laugh
It'll make you feel better and you look better too.
Exercise
Aerobic activity is one of the best ways to reduce stress.
Get outdoors
A brief break and a little sunshine can immediately reduce stress levels.
Smell the roses
Aromatherapy can be a tremendous help for alleviating stress.
Lower your goals
Many of us set ourselves up for defeat simply by setting unrealistic goals.
Breathe
Breathe slowly and deeply before you react to a stressful situation.
Slow down
Speaking slower than usual can help combat the onset of stress.
