Overindulged during the festive season? Or can’t quite bring yourself to stick to that nutritional New Year’s resolution? Eating healthily doesn’t have to be a hassle! Here are some healthy food options for wholesome, healthy groceries and meals, with options for various dietary types and eating clean.
Little Farms is a friendly neighbourhood grocer with a great range of fresh produce and delicious treats, along with a specialty butcher. You’ll find free-range meats, sustainably caught ocean-fresh seafood, same-day harvested greens and organic produce all in one store. There’s also a wide range of healthy food from breakfast essentials to special condiments and marinated items. Options for special dietary needs cater to low-sugar, zero-alcohol, gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, plant-based, vegetarian, vegan, keto and paleo diets.
Also available is a range of fresh, locally squeezed juices such as the Little Farms Detox Juice. Packed with high amounts of antioxidants and vitamins, the Detox Juice is made fresh daily from lemons, apples, beetroot and carrots. It’s ideal for a healthy start to the weekend or to make amends for one too many Friday night drinks. You can also shop ready-to-eat salads like the Little Farms Mesclun Mix. Each box has a vibrant blend of green romaine lettuce, green crystal lettuce, red coral lettuce, rainbow chard and sorrel. Locally grown and free of pesticides, these crunchy, fresh leaves are picked daily. You can shop Little Farms’ range online and at their five stores.
