As the New Year arrives we all begin to plan ahead for 2020, from goals to resolutions, the start of January is perfect for a detox. Whether you choose to make New Year’s resolutions or not, every January feels like a new beginning, and definitely the time for a ‘New You’. We know healthy living and fitness is at the forefront of everyone’s mind, so we have the ultimate ‘New year, New you’ run down from centre:mk retailers, to have you feeling your best throughout January and into 2020.

 

 

Let’s start it off with an amazing bargain from Primark. Their new womenswear gym range features fashionable but functional designs made from recycled materials. Starting from just £6, it’s the perfect motivation in itself to get gym ready. Not only does it look after your post-Christmas spending it’s good for the environment too! Who else gets motivated for the gym with new gym wear?

 

As well as fitness, this month is all about refreshing your diet, and obviously ‘Veganuary’ is the hot topic. Many food retailers in centre:mk have joined the movement, with revolutionary new treats that you’ll definitely want to get your hands on. First up, Pret, they have just introduced their Very Berry Croissant, just as flaky and delicious but it’s made using a vegan recipe and filled with a fruity berry compote. Delicious to banish the early morning blues, £1.70.

 

And the most anticipated bake has arrived at Greggs! The Vegan Steak Bake, with crispy pastry and Quorn filling…joining the Veganuary journey doesn’t mean your favourite lunch time snack needs to be missed, £1.55.

 

 

For all the guys out there, it’s time to update your active wear. M&S men’s sportswear enlists a variety of special features to make your workout easier, including moisture-wicking fabrics and water-resistant finishes. Starting at £15. Fancy upgrading your gym shoes too? Skechers have a brilliant range of sports performance trainers with comfort the key focus, to help you reach your goals, £65.

 

Creating a healthier daily routine is an easy step to improving your lifestyle. Start your mornings with a fresh homemade juice with your very own blender. A great investment to add to your home appliances, pick up a NutriBullet from John Lewis & Partners for £69.99, mix together all the essential nutrition to help you on your way to 5 a day!

Now, if eating out isn’t part of your 2020 goals but living a healthier lifestyle and even becoming plant based is… M&S food hall is the place for you. Their plant kitchen range makes every meal delicious and perfect for those busy days on the go. Their latest addition ‘No Chicken Kiev’ is so tasty you’ll definitely all want to try it, £3.50.

 

Finally, after all that healthy eating, there are some sweet treats out there too. Becoming Vegan doesn’t mean you need to miss out on chocolate, especially now Hotel Chocolat have revealed their Nutmilk chocolate, made with nuts instead of milk but just as creamy, £6.50.
