Tips to stay on track for a healthy 2018
The beginning of the year is the perfect time to get back on track with your healthy eating and lifestyle habits. We put together a few tips and recipes to help you on your way to a happy and healthy 2018.
1. Let's start with a healthy juice recipe you can make with our horizontal or vertical slow juicers from BioChef.
Since juice doesn’t have fibre, it doesn’t have the same digestion needs as regular food. The nutrients in a juice are more easily absorbed by your body.
The New Year Detox Juice Recipe:
• 2 lemons, peeled and halved
• 4 apples, quartered
• 2 cucumbers, halved
• 1 cup filtered water/ice cubes
Alternate soft and hard fruit and veg through your juicer and adjust pulp to taste. Add the water and stir just before serving.
To help you with your healthy eating goals, the BioChef Atlas Pro Whole Slow Juicer features a specifically designed wide feeding chute which allows you to easily juice whole fruits and vegetables with minimal preparation.

2. Make your own healthy snacks with a dehydrator and vacuum seal for longer shelf life
Your food will have a much longer shelf life if you use a food dehydrator. The dehydrator will remove all the moisture from the food and, if stored properly, you can keep your food for up to one year longer than if you used an oven. Prepare your delicious home made snacks and get rid of the unwanted preservatives and nasties from store-bought snacks. Using a vacuum sealer to package your snacks can preserve them for even longer!
Home made Granny Smith Granola Recipe:
• 3 granny smith apples
• 2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal
• 1/2 cup slivered almonds
• 2 tablespoons brown sugar
1. Quarter, peel and core apples; coarsely grate.
2. Place in a bowl with the other ingredients and toss lightly until thoroughly mixed.
3. Place mixture on a Fruit Roll sheet and dry for 2 to 3 hours, or until crunchy.
4. For a more tender granola, add 1/4 cup vegetable oil before drying.

3. Did you know that with ageing, our bodies do not tolerate so much lactose anymore?
Indeed the special enzyme that allowed us as kids to go through a bottle of milk a day slowly fades and leads us to be more sensitive.
