It’s that time of year where resolutions are made and if yours relate to your health, wellbeing and fitness, Mell Square is here to help. From mouth-watering Veganuary meals to organic skincare and gym wear essentials, our fantastic retailers have you covered.
LET’S GET STARTED
So much of looking and feeling great comes down to your diet and Grape Tree in Poplar Way has a wide range of health foods to choose from. Discover healthy snacks like nuts, seeds and dried fruit, as well as gluten-free confectionery, cooking and baking ingredients. Plus, there’s loads of vegan options like delicious meat substitutes, rich hazelnut spreads and all your favourite flavours of crisps.
If you’re a beauty buff or a skincare lover, why not treat yourself to some organic and cruelty-free products from The Body Shop? From a refreshing tea tree range to the soft as butter vitamin E moisture cream, everything the store has to offer is kind to your skin and kind to the planet. Give your visit an extra-special twist and create a bright, customised label when you buy a 200ml body butter.
HIT THE GYM
Get ready to achieve your fitness goals and most importantly, enjoy every workout with énergie Fitness. The great-value gym has state-of-the-art Precor cardio, resistant and free weights equipment, as well as innovative training zones and a choice of over 30 classes a week. If you’ve got a specific goal in mind and could do with some extra help, the gym’s personal trainers specialise in different areas, such as muscle building, fat loss, toning, body transformation and rehabilitation needs.
LOOK THE PART
Need some new gym wear? Then check out ‘Goodmove’, the gorgeous new athleisure range from M&S. Designed to enhance performance, the collection includes everything from seamless gym leggings to supportive sports bras, running tops, cuffed joggers and more.
ENJOY NOURISHING FOOD
If 2020 is the year you’re embarking on a plant-based, meat-free or dairy-free diet, M&S is here to get you started with over 50 flavour-packed dishes. The store’s new Plant Kitchen range aims to make every day delicious, with dishes including a vegan Bolognese enriched with miso for an intense depth of flavour, and pizza topped with jackfruit for a smoky taste and rich texture. High in protein and quick to cook, there are healthy versions of all your favourites, like cauliflower popcorn bites served with a sweet-and-spicy Buffalo dip, no-beef burgers and no-duck spring rolls.
DINE LIKE AN ITALIAN
Good news if you’re taking part in Veganuary ¬– so is Carluccio’s! The restaurant’s new Cucina Verde menu helps you enjoy a plant-based take on authentic Italian cuisine, and includes a pasta dish filled with Veganzola, a plant-based Gorgonzola. There’s also Gnocchi e Zucca and Panella di Ceci, the Carluccio’s take on the popular Sicilian street food of crispy chickpea fritters.
INDULGE IN PUB GRUB
Thought you couldn’t find any decent vegan options at the pub? Think again! Indian gastro pub Tap & Tandoor’s vegan menu is bursting with choice, from tasty small plates like samosa chaat to hearty soya and chickpea-based curries and sizzling mixed grills. There are loads of sides to accompany your meal too like beer-battered onion bhajis and masala chips.
