As another unprecedented year draws to a close and many of us begin to wind down for Christmas, we look back and recap some of our blog highlights - diverse and informative topics from the year that was …
Reasons to Eat More Fish
Fish is so beneficial it’s considered to be a Nootropic food - natural compounds that act as cognitive enhancers! Eating at least one serving of fish per week has been linked to a reduced risk of heart attacks and strokes. And fatty fish is also an excellent source of vitamin D, a crucial nutrient that boosts your immune system - especially important at this time!
Bone Broth Benefits
Bone broth, also known as good old-fashioned stock, is the highly nutritious liquid you get when you simmer animal bones and connective tissue. Depending on your own specific requirements and also preferred taste, you can use the bones and connective tissue from any Halaal certified meat, poultry or Halaal fish to make your stock. Benefits include digestive and gut health, immune support, joint health and improved sleep!
Healthy Food Swaps
Staying healthy is top-of-mind for all of us as we navigate the pandemic, and part of making sure our immune systems stay strong and resilient is to manage our weight by making wiser and healthier food choices. Try these healthy swaps: replace mayonnaise with mustard or Bulgarian yoghurt; ditch the soft drink and opt for sparkling water; and choose a protein to fill up on, not protein bars!
Home Deliveries a Winner!
We pride ourselves on being one of the leading Cape Town meat wholesalers, and part of that success means adapting our service to suit current needs so it was with great pleasure that for the first time in our history, we opened up to the public, and began our home delivery service in 2020! This is currently available in the Cape Town CBD, Atlantic Seaboard, Southern suburbs, Northern suburbs and in the Boland, but we are looking to expand, so be sure to check back for more details.
And finally, as we reflect on the year that was and our thoughts turn gratefully to all those who have stood by us and helped us navigate these challenging times, we want to say thank you for choosing us, thank you for trusting our products and services - we are honoured to serve you! Wishing you all a Happy, and most importantly, Healthy Festive Season!
