I’m not much of a TV sports fan, yet whenever the Olympics roll around I’m glued to the screen, awed by these athletes at the height of their physical powers. In the lead-up to the Rio Olympics, you may have noticed a surge in advertising using people leaping and jumping with unbridled bursts of energy. Have you ever thought, “What I’d give for some of that vitality!?” (Without the harsh 5am training sessions!) Winter is a time when many of us tend to feel sluggish and lacking in vitality. We’re juggling work, family and a crowded schedule of commitments, and it’s all-too-common to feel tired all the time. So this month, our dietitian, Brooke Longfield, takes us through her simple 6-step guide to getting our mojo back. See how on p38. If…

The oily truth I found last month’s article ‘Your guide to a healthier oil’ (July 2016) very helpful. With so many oils to choose from these days, I have sometimes wondered if I was making the right choice. Especially now with all the fuss over coconut oil – just because something might claim to be a ‘superfood’, it might not actually be quite so super. Meghan Atkins, NSW Recipes for success Thank you HFG for your June issue. There was some really good and useful information, from ‘Where is sugar hiding?’ (June, 2016) to the amazing soup and beans recipes. Must try: Mexican chilli bean soup and Green minestrone soup. I served them to my two-and-a-half year old son and even he loved them! Thanks. Diana Mignani, QLD Cooking by numbers I cooked the beautiful Red curry…

Super-whaaat? Foods and drinks claiming to be ‘superfoods’ have grown by more than 200 per cent worldwide over the past five years — even in the pet food industry! But do they deserve their super claims? “The word ‘superfood’ has no real definition, it’s a marketing ploy,” says HFG dietitian, Brooke Longfield. “All fruit, vegies, legumes, grains and nuts are ‘super’ nutritionally compared to junk food.” Mintel Global New Products Database (GNPD), 2015 IF THE GENES FIT Ever wondered why some people prefer sweet foods, while others like salty? A UK study of more than 1000 sets of twins has shown that our food preferences can be inherited through our genes.

'The average brewing time is 25 seconds, which is disgusting' So, how do you make the perfect cup of tea? Bring your kettle to the boil, but don’t let it switch off by itself. The key is having oxygen in the water, and every second it boils, you’re pumping out the oxygen. I always recommend pouring out any residual water in the kettle and starting afresh. Jiggle or no jiggle? This whole jiggling thing is a complete waste of time. It washes off the colour which fools you into thinking that the tea’s ready. But colour doesn’t mean flavour, and the flavour is still in the bag. How long should it steep? The average time people brew their tea is 25 seconds, which is absolutely disgusting. Three minutes is ideal. Do you use a cup or mug? Fine…
