With the speedy pace of modern life, eating on the run is a necessity for many of us trying to keep up our energy and get everything done. It’s a reality, though, that many convenience foods simply don’t cut it when it comes to meeting our nutritional needs. Many of these snacks are highly processed, contain hefty levels of fat, sugar and salt and lack any redeeming nutrients. But what if there was a nutritious and portable staple snack you could keep in your handbag or pop in your desk drawer at work when you’re on the run and need to eat something that’s nutritious – fast? Nice & Natural’s new Protein Nut Bars with 3 Superseeds are the ideal snack on the run for busy people who aren’t willing to compromise on quality…

Hello HFG readers! After three-and-a-half years wearing my dietitian hat for Healthy Food Guide, I’m very excited to jump into my new role as editor. Working for HFG was a dream of mine, even before I started studying nutrition. I’ve always loved its sensible and practical approach. And, at a time when just about anyone can dispense nutrition advice, it’s based on solid science. I’m very proud to be part of a magazine that is dedicated to making healthy eating easy. But that’s enough about me — let’s talk about you. Here’s what I’ve learnt about you over the past few years: You come to HFG for trustworthy, credible advice on health and nutrition; you don’t want to hear about what you can and can’t eat from celebrities; you look for delicious,…

Healthy makeover I appreciate the makeover recipes — ones where the HFG team has taken a classic recipe, such as Caesar salad or fried rice, and changed it to make it more nutritious. It is really great to know that I can still enjoy my favourite dishes with less fat, sodium and overall energy content. Tara Raupach, QLD GO WITH THE FLOW Your article ‘How to relieve constipation’ in the November 2016 issue was fantastic. It’s hardly ever spoken about, and the first remedy is usually medication.
