Women’s Day with Weigh-Less: Two recipes


Being a woman these days means juggling many areas of your life every day, all day. More often than not – it means being mum, wife, a professional at work, an exercise regime included and eating the right way – and this includes planning out menus for the whole family.

Women the world over is what legacies are made of. Our own legacy, Founder and Chairman of Weigh-Less, Mary Holroyd advises all women:
“You hold the power to renovate your body and mind through a few simple life adjustments. This Women’s Day turn your focus to looking forward to being healthy overall. Aim for health and you are guaranteed to be happy!”

A Weigh-Less Tip:
The benefits of teaching your family healthy food choices are enormous, not only will you raise healthier families, but you will give them a skill that they will use for the rest of their lives. It is imperative that women (being the driving force in households) encourage healthy balanced meals for their families.
Mary Holroyd says: “I urge you to encourage your families to make small changes that will yield positive results, promote drinking lots of water, encourage them to eat smaller balanced meals, and get them off the couch and in the garden. Stress the importance of active living, and encourage your families to partake in sport or other activities that promote an active healthy lifestyle.”
Mary Holroyd, Chairman & Founder of Weigh-Less would like to wish all women AN AWESOME WOMEN’S DAY – Celebrate being a Woman – The Legend You Are!
