The Healthy Swap

It's the start of a brand new year and many of us want to detox, reset our bodies and start afresh after a hectic and indulgent summer. But in a time filled with conflicting dietary advice it’s difficult to figure out exactly what healthy eating means. How can you apply healthy principles slowly without deprivation, and be in it for the long-haul? Meet Leah and Ivy, two women who both turned their health around by choosing to eat real food. No gimmicks, no crazy restrictions, just proper, nourishing food:
“We want to give you the best tip on how to take small but efficient steps towards cleaner, more wholesome eating without ever feeling deprived. We both walk the walk and talk the talk and we have done so for years. Eating real, nourishing foods gave us a new zest for life, increased energy, glowing skin, stable moods, slimmer waist-lines and most importantly; confirmed that food can be the solution to far more than you expect.”
