New Year, New You

With the new year in sight, it’s time to start thinking about what the next phase of your life will hold. It’s time to start setting your goals and resolutions for the year ahead, to ensure that when 2018 rolls around, you can look back and see just how far you’ve come in a year. But just for a change this year, we thought it might be fun to try setting goals that are actually obtainable. Goals that we can actually stick to and work at, rather than those vague resolutions that we keep for a week and then end up needing to set again for the next year. Studies show that 92% of new year resolutions fail by January 15th! Well this year, we’re going to make ‘em stick! How do we do this pray tell? The trick is to keep it specific. Goals that are time-bound and measurable are proven to work best, and writing down your goals makes you 50% more likely to achieve them! So now that we know how to set them, let’s have a think about exactly what goals to set for the coming year.


Eat Healthy

We’ve all done it, we tell ourselves “this year I’ll eat healthier”. So vague, so difficult to stick to. With a goal like that, you’ll no doubt hit that #cleaneating trend hard in the first couple of weeks of the year, but after that, this one becomes a little unrealistic for us mere mortals. Instead, try being more specific. Perhaps decide to eat healthy fats, like avocados and omega-3s. Choose one or two days of the week where you have salmon for one of the meals that day. Or maybe buy a new recipe book of healthy recipes and set a goal to try a new recipe once a week. There are so many ways you can be healthy throughout the year; the trick is to be specific. And if you’re looking for the freshest ingredients for your healthy meals or snacks, head down to Peaches where you’ll find the best quality produce to keep you motivated!

Lose Weight 
Another crowd favourite, we’re all aware of how easily this one can fall by the wayside. Try to keep things exciting when you’re setting goals to exercise. Perhaps every Sunday morning you try a new class like yoga on the beach or a barre class that incorporates ballet with pilates and cardio. Or put aside a time in the week to take a hike through some of the beautiful national parks or along the stunning coastline. Another great way to stay motivated is to find a workout buddy so there’s no bailing on leg day.
Kick the caffeine addiction 

2016 has been a big year, so no surprise we’ve all got a low-key caffeine addiction by this stage. Reset your body by switching out that 4th coffee for the day for a herbal tea instead. Slowly work your way back to the recommended daily dose of 5 espresso shots (equivalent of 2 takeaway flat whites). At Peaches, we have an amazing range of teas that will send you into the stratosphere. Make sure you drink lots of water as well to keep hydrated!


So go forth and set goals! Remember, keep it specific and keep it realistic. For any advice on how to eat healthy or for all the best and freshest produce, come down the Peaches Fresh Food and say hey to the Peaches Family!

Peaches Product of the Month: Effervé Lemonade

As the year 2016 draws to a close, we often take the time to reflect on the year passed, as well as look ahead to the year to come. 2016 was a big year, a year of excitement and change. Trump won the US election, the Brexit motion passed, Rio De Janeiro hosted the summer Olympics, and Beyoncé released her sixth studio album, Lemonade. Mmm, lemonade. We, here at Peaches Fresh Food, love lemonade. We also love Beyonce, but boy do we love lemonade. Which is exactly why we’ve decided that to wrap up the year, we’d make our product of the month Effervé Lemonade. Perfect for that hot summer’s day, lounging by the pool, Effervé lemonade will quench your thirst AND satisfy your taste.


Arriving in a beautifully packaged bottle, the Efferve range boasts 11 delicious flavours ranging from classic French to Tangerine and Lime. Using a traditional French recipe and artisan processes, the product is born from the natural springs of north-east France. Natural Spring water is at the core of these drinks, sourced straight from the natural springs that have flowed for centuries among the Vosges Mountains in the stunning Alsace region. Straight from the mountains to the bottle, the range is not only delicious but healthy as well! Made with all natural flavours, the entire Efferve range is also gluten-free and non-GMO, meaning there’s something for absolutely everyone that rocks up to those work and family end of year parties.


We know what you’re thinking. “End of year party, you say? If there’s any end of year parties, it’s not likely I’ll be drinking a sparkling lemonade….” Well that’s where you’re wrong! These fruity beauties are delicious on their own but even more delicious mixed in to your favourite summer cocktail. Why not make your usual gin and tonic with the delicate and lady-like pink lemonade from the Effervé range in place of tonic? Or you might try the classic French lemonade to take your usual summer shandy to that next level. And for those of you that are feeling a little more adventurous, here’s one of our favourite cocktail recipes from the Effervé range:


The Blood Orange

  • 1 part of Vodka
  • ¼ part of Triple Sec
  • ¼ part of simple syrup
  • 2 ½ parts of Efferve Blood Orange


Pour all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake and mix. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a twist of Blood Orange peel. Enjoy!
