How are you feeling at the moment? Happy? Tired? Stressed? Take a second to check in with yourself, then think about how your mood has influenced your food choices. Most of us feel both healthier and happier when we eat fresh, nutritious food. So, why is it that eating less healthy foods, like chocolate or ice cream, can also temporarily make us feel good? Emotional eating is a complex topic, and one I’ve experienced first-hand. This month, we explore the link between food and mood, and share the latest research to help shift your food thinking (p24). It’s been another busy month for team HFG. We moved offices, competed in a 30km charity walk, and put together a jam-packed issue! It’s easy to let healthy eating slide when you’re short on time,…

your say

High rotation! Now that I have accumulated about 18 months of Healthy Food Guide magazines, I can honestly say that my family no longer complains that dinner is boring. I love the fact that you include such a wide variety of foods and meals. It makes finding a healthy, interesting option for dinner so much easier. Thank you! Rachel Crawford, NSW Smarter shopper I read the article in the March, 2019 issue about the health food aisle and found it very interesting. It’s made it easier to navigate and choose healthy options. I find it very confusing when some health foods use marketing buzzwords. I now feel a bit more confident in choosing the right items.

ask the expert

Q I love making homemade soup, but lots of recipes use store-bought stock which I thought was really high in salt. What is the best stock to use for cooking — or can I swap it for water? Caroline, via email We think it’s great you love home cooking. You’re more likely to have a healthier diet, and you’ll probably save some coin as well. And you are correct — some pantry staples like stock are high in salt, which isn’t good for your ticker. Too much salt can raise your blood pressure and therefore increase your risk of heart disease. What’s more, high-salt diets are linked to kidney issues, osteoporosis and stroke. The best thing to do when buying stock — or any other product for that matter — is to check out…

sleep on this!

Can’t wait for the weekend, when you’ll catch up on all that sleep? A new study has found that people who binge-sleep on weekends hoping to cancel out sleep starvation during the week aren’t doing their health any favours. In fact, it makes your insulin sensitivity worse, putting you more at risk of conditions such as diabetes and obesity. Playing weekend sleep catch-up also disrupted participants’ body clocks, and they ate more after dinner on Mondays and Tuesdays. The good news? Aim for the recommended seven or eight hours shut-eye on ‘school nights’ and the weekends, because…sweet dreams are made of this… Source: Current Biology, 2019. Photo: iStock.…
