On the first day I met our dietitian Brooke Longfield, she told me she was just 16 years old when her mum brought home a new little food magazine called Healthy Food Guide. It was our first issue, and Brooke was soon hooked. Fast forward some years, and now she is an experienced dietitian and a key member of the HFG team. Brooke’s recall of every story we have ever run is remarkable. She is also passionate about you, and about inspiring you with simple, practical advice and great recipes. So, it is with great pleasure that I hand her the reigns as the new editor of Healthy Food Guide. I m moving on to helm Prevention, which is joining our publishing stable. It makes sense that those of us seeking a…

Colour your meals Thank you for the fabulous recipes in the November, 2016 issue. Getting kids to eat healthily is as simple as encouraging them to ‘eat a rainbow’ of foods. And your recipes really tweaked my ‘rainbow’ appetite. The spicy prawn stir-fry (p56), and tomato and chickpea salad (p68) are family favourites! Judith Caine, VIC Waste not As a single working mum with two active teenagers, I was especially grateful for the ‘Grain check’ article (Nov, 2016). Buying and cooking the whole packet of grains, then using it in a few different and delicious ways was fabulous. We tried something new that I could prepare ahead, and there was no waste! Thanks so much! Tania Weekes, NSW Talk to us on FACEBOOK WE ASKED: Peter FitzSimons recently lost 40kg by quitting all sugar and alcohol. Do…

Scanning scandals Bagging your own groceries at the self-serve scanner is proving risky business for Aussie supermarkets. It’s been found that almost a third of all shoplifting at Coles is done at self-serve checkouts. How scan-dalous! Australian Food News, 2016 More milk? Are you a soggy cereal or a crunchy kind of breakfast person? It turns out that men are more likely than women to love soggy cereal, say researchers. They also found that 13 million Aussies fuss to get the perfect ratio of milk to cereal so it’s not too soggy – it’s just right! Galaxy Research, 2016 Going nuts! We know that a handful of nuts (about 30g) each day is a great source of heart-healthy fats, protein and fibre, yet few of us eat this amount to reach our daily target. But did you…

Q Being busy in the holidays, I just snack during the day then eat a huge dinner. How can I keep a healthier eating routine? – Kate K, via email Over the Christmas holidays, we tend to relax our eating habits, so this is a very common trap to fall into. While it might not seem like you’re eating much, nibbling on the odd biscuit here and there, along with drinking a couple of milky coffees can quickly add up. If you keep a record of what you snack on, all that grazing could be the kilojoule equivalent of a breakfast and lunch. Holidays are a time when you want plenty of energy. So, start the morning with a nutritious breakfast before your busy day begins. Eggs on wholegrain toast, or a big bowl…
