Let’s start 2021 like it should be: healthy and fit. Together with HelloFresh, we’ll help you a bit so you can choose healthy and delicious recipes in the new year. That way you’ll begin it healthy and freshly motivated.

If you’re craving a nutritious yet healthy diet after all those Christmas dinners, try the balance recipes in the HelloFresh app for example. They’re low in calories, high in fiber, and most important of all, they contain at least 250g greens per portion. HelloFresh makes a healthy start easy: you choose your favorite recipes each week and they do the rest!

Below you’ll find some of our favorite recipes for variated and delicious cooking in January.

Oh and psssttt: at the end of the blog you’ll find a cool little gift!

Protein sources

You need proteins to build and maintain muscle. Protein provides amino acids, which are a building block for the body, especially for the muscles. Read more about proteins and their benefits in this blog. Proteins can be found in various foods, such as dairy, legumes, meat, fish and poultry, nuts, eggs and soy. Both bulgur and quinoa are grains rich in protein.

Next to that, eggs are said to be one of the most nutritious foods. An egg is a source of various nutrients associated with a healthy brain, especially B vitamins, which also help keep you in a good mood. All the more reason to start the day with these natural energy boosters!

Try our favorite shakshuka for example – great as breakfast, lunch ánd diner:

Iron Boosters

Iron contributes to an energetic feeling and good resistance. You get it from red meat, the steak tips in this case, but did you know that it is also found in green leafy vegetables, whole grains, legumes, nuts and eggs? Chef’s tip: iron is better absorbed if you add something with vitamin C to your meal, such as vegetables.
