Philips #HealthyHabitSwap review/campaign. Hello friends. Today I’m taking part in a health swap campain.

Philips Healthy Habit Swap #HealthyHabitSwap

My New Years Resolution goals are going surprisingly well.

I am really enjoying running again and love working out at the gym when I have some spare time. I particularly love the spinning classes.

Getting to push yourself really hard, knowing you have had a good workout once you have finished.

Running is very slowly but surely starting to feel easier again, just my pace I want to work on now. I want to knock off 5 minutes on my Parkrun time this year.

To get back to my PB; Which was one of my goals for last year, but that is a whole different story!! Being part of a running club definitely, helps to push myself more. 

Parkrun Parkfun:

Me at the end of Parkrun on Saturday. Still smiling too!!

My next step is improving my eating habits. One thing I struggle with is all kinds of treats. I have a bit of a sweet tooth and when I have done some exercise I tend to lean toward the biscuit tin for some instant energy!

About The Healthy Habit Swap:

A few weeks ago Philips asked me if I would like to take part in their #HealthyHabitSwap campaign. 

The #HealthyHabitSwap focuses on the everyday benefits of juicing and starting new habits so we can make healthy life choices rather than a quick fix New Year’s resolution.

A great way to swap the biscuits, chocolates and cake for a nice and healthy fruity drink instead.

They sent me this Avance Collection Juicer to try and make my own drinks. How cool is this juicer!!

The Philips juicers allow juicing to be a convenient healthy habit that young professionals and families can fit into a busy lifestyle, and the Philips Avance Collection Centrifugal Juicer features unique Fiberboost technology, allowing for 50% more fibres in your glass for a more wholesome juice.

Off to the shops to buy some nice fresh fruit and vegetables. We came back with lots of yummy fruit treats Mangos, Oranges, Apples, Red & Black Grapes, Kiwi’s, Pineapples and Grapefruits. Wow.

First up I made a drink to kick-start the day with a healthy juice instead of my morning cappuccino:

We have been loving making juicy drinks and still have lots of fruit to experiment with. I am making a nice mango and orange with a few other ingredients popped in later once the children are home from school.

My Final Thoughts:

I am loving this juicer. It is so easy to use and quick and easy to clean. Phillips say you can clean it in under a minute and although I forgot to time it myself, I would say they are right!! It was so quick to clean which is a bonus!!

    I cannot decide whether to start juicing or not, I like the health benefits but the thought of the time it takes puts me off

    I'm glad the running is going well. The juice looks great, I have a bit of a sweet tooth and it's so hard to walk away from the biscuits.

    • Clairejustine oxox
      25 January 2017 / 20:11

      Thanks Lisa. Trouble is now the running is going well, I am aching more, so the biscuits are more tempting. Good job I make a juice to cure my sweet tooth 🙂

    Juicers are brilliant. You can just make it up as you go along with what you have, and make it personal to suit your tastes. And it's healthy. Win win win!

    • Clairejustine oxox
      25 January 2017 / 20:01

      Thanks Grant, I love the fact you can chuck anything nice that you have in, in. It will come in handy when the apples need eating up quickly too 🙂

    I have always been a bit dubious about juicing, but it does seem to be popular and it can only be a good thing to get more fruit and veg into the diet! Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

    • Clairejustine oxox
      25 January 2017 / 20:00

      Thanks Kate. I'm not a big fan of veg but I am loving juicing carrots. Going to look for something else veggie to add next 🙂

    I used to drink a lot of juice to curb my sweet tooth but I found I had so much the natural sugar in them didn't do me much good x

    • Clairejustine oxox
      25 January 2017 / 19:58

      Thanks Rhian, I heard that fruit has a lot of natural sugar so I thought it would be good for us to all have a nice fresh juice each for breakfast 🙂

    I just bought a juicer too! I got mine 2nd hand out of the local paper, but I totally love it. My favourite is: 2 apples, 1 carrot, 1 inch slice of lemon and 1 inch knob of ginger…absolutely delicious!

    • Clairejustine oxox
      25 January 2017 / 19:57

      Thanks Amy, whoo that sounds lovely 🙂

    As much as I love juice and the health benefits too, I just never find the time to get into it and keep it up. I go through phases where I promise myself I will and then it all goes out the window on a hectic Monday morning. I need to try harder!

    • Clairejustine oxox
      25 January 2017 / 19:56

      Thanks for the comment lovely. Me too before. This one is so good as it is quick and easy to clean 🙂
