Create new healthy eating habits that will last all year.

New Year’s Day is the time many throw away the Christmas leftovers and start afresh with healthy eating habits. However, according to a recent survey 87% will give up their new clean regime within the first 12 days of January – with a quarter citing boredom as the reason for falling off the wagon.

Inspiring and interesting

Make it easy for people to stick to their healthy resolutions by providing a host of delicious, tempting dishes that are packed with fresh ingredients and are low in salt, sugar and saturated fats.

A great place to start is by replacing butter or oil with Original Whirl.

Compared with butter, Whirl is 65% lower in saturated fat, twice as high in monounsaturated fats and five times as high in polyunsaturated fats. Unsalted Whirl has been developed to meet the increasing demand for lower sodium diets. It contains only 0.2% salt - helpful for those watching their salt intake.

Healthy eating doesn’t mean taste has to be sacrificed. Whirl delivers that delicious, buttery flavour that customers love.

Here are a few ideas on how you can use Whirl to create healthy dishes for your customers, whether it’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner …

Breakfast bakes

Replace sunflower oil with Whirl when rustling up oat and blueberry breakfast muffins. Batch bake in advance and serve with low fat yoghurt or with a superfood smoothie as a light breakfast bite.

Fabulous frittata

Give your light lunch options a continental twist with a spinach and sweet potato tortilla. Soften onions and garlic in Whirl before adding thin slices of sweet potato and spinach, followed by eggs. Slice up and serve with a crisp salad.

Go naked

Ditch heavy, creamy sauces and serve up lean, grilled meats and fish, seared in Whirl, with steamed greens for a protein-packed lunch or dinner. For a meat-free option, switch to a cauliflower steak – brush with Whirl and season with garlic, crushed chilli flakes, salt and pepper, before popping under the grill.

Succulent soup

For a healthy, light meal, give our Super Green Soup recipe a go. Sizzle your garlic, ginger, coriander and turmeric in Whirl before adding your green vegetables. Whizz in a blender and garnish with a cooked broccoli head.
