A Health Coach Shares Her Circuit Breaker Grocery List For Healthy Eating

Hunkered down at home, it's easy to get caught in the cycle of bad eating habits. But if there's any time to eat well and nourish your body, it's now (and thereafter, we hope). You want to burst through the front door in your best form when the measures are lifted.

Take a cue from from Singapore-based health coach and founder of Hello Balance, Katie Dewhurst. Here, she suggests healthy snack alternatives, where to get quality ingredients from and what to get from her favourite stores. Everything can be found online and delivered right to your doorstep, so ehm, no excuses? Follow suit or use it as a guide.
