Now that the pancakes have been eaten, many of us are ready to make some diet and lifestyle adjustments. Whether you are religious and treating Lent as a sacrifice for 40 days and even if you’re not, it is a fantastic opportunity to make some healthy changes, often with the support of people around you doing the same. Here, Laurann O’Reilly, nutritionist and owner of Nutrition by Laurann provides us with her six top ideas of things you can give up or take up this Lent season. Whilst we often see Lent as a time of abstinence or giving something up it can also be a great time to take something on.
