We hear it over and over, ‘new year, new you’. It’s so easy to write an endless list of all of the things we would like to do to start the year afresh, but in reality, when you’re heading back into a busy work schedule, it can sometimes be difficult to stay true to the ‘new you’ you imagined! Not only do we want to shake that sluggish feeling after a long December of over-indulging, but we’ve already turned our minds to getting beach-bod ready ahead of the summer season!
So with summer in our sights, we’re here to help show you how you can incorporate some easy healthy options into your day by making small changes to the decisions you have control of (and without the need to dramatically shock your body into withdrawal too)! So, where better to start than with the endless meetings that are quickly filling up your diary for the rest of the month? Say no to the chocolate brownies and cookies and turn your head to the fresh fruit, granola breakfast bars and super food smoothies that venues offer, as an alternative to the bog-standard biscuit!
Here at Access, we know that you are busy, busy, busy sorting out your diary, so we’ve taken the time to shortlist our go-to venues for healthy alternatives, to ensure a spring in everyone’s step this January!

What do you say? Has our sneak peek tempted your taste buds? It’s always easy to stick with the ‘norm’ which is why venues often just put forward ‘tea & biscuits’ as the catering option available. However, our friendly MICE team will be able to work closely with venues, to design a more bespoke and healthy catering choice for you and your delegates.
Remember, your new year resolutions don’t have to be boring… these little changes with tasty, yet healthy choices will not only help you feel happier and healthier, they’re also proven to increase productivity – a win win all round!
