Here are some quick swaps to make every day for ultimate wellness that starts from the inside out.
1. SUPER GREENS for coffee
Ditch your morning espresso for 2 teaspoons of SUPER ELIXIR Greens. Formulated by nutritional doctors using 45 premium wholefood ingredients, it will wake your body up with more beauty benefits than a shot of caffeine ever could.
2. Mushrooms for meat
Nutrient-rich alkalising mushrooms have a uniquely savoury flavour known as umami, and a dense texture when cooked, making them the perfect alternative to meat. Unlike meat, they are rich sources of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
3. Chewing Slowly for Speed Eating
Slow down and chew every mouthful mindfully. Research shows eating slowing decreases calorie-input and improves digestion.
4. Outside for Inside
Vitamin D is vital for strong healthy bones and muscles. It forms in the skin when it is exposed to UV from sunlight, making the sun the very best source of vitamin D, even in winter.

5. Rice & pea protein for whey
Whey protein is the watery portion of milk that separates from the curds when making cheese. A lot of protein supplements are created using whey, but even if you don’t stick to a plant-based diet you might like to consider switching to a plant-based protein supplement. There are common health problems associated with whey, dairy and soy protein supplements, especially affecting digestion. Plant proteins on their own don’t provide us with the full spectrum of essential amino acids, which is why we added two plant-based proteins to WelleCo NOURISHING PLANT PROTEIN. POW!
6. Raw Nuts for Nut Butter
Commercial nut butters are often brimming with sneaky sugar that is added for extra sweetness. Cut your calorie count by ditching the nut butter and nibbling on raw nuts instead. Remember that even raw nuts are super high in calories, so stick to just a few at a time.
7. Stretching for Social Media
Stop scrolling and shut down social media for 30 minutes and roll out a mat instead. Stretching and flexibility work is a great way to alleviate stress and anxiety.
8. Pan-Fried for Deep-Fried
Deep-fried food is delicious but super high in fat. If you are hankering for something crunchy, crisp-up healthily by pan-frying lean protein and veggies in a little oil instead.
9. Brown rice for white
Before white rice goes through the refining process it looks exactly like brown rice, with a side hull and bran that provides natural wholeness to the grain. Brown rich is rich in selenium, naturally-occurring oils, manganese and fibre which is great for weight loss. Plus brown rice has a nuttier flavour than white, making it the superior rice of choice on all levels!
