January is the month of resolutions – are you trying to be good this year?
Now that we’re all back to work, it can be hard to find inspiration to eat healthy all week long. Would you trade a glass of wine for fruit juice or a pizza for a salad?
Sometimes when you’re trying to stick to healthy eating, your brain teases you with thoughts of eating out or having fun snacks 24/7.
Just because you’re eating healthy doesn’t mean you get stuck in the kitchen boiling chicken and broccoli all day. Belfast is home to a variety of places that will give your taste buds plenty of flavour.
We’ve tried and tested five local restaurants that offer healthy alternatives.
