While I write this, Aussie strawberries are under threat. Someone has deliberately sabotaged one of our favourite fruits and it has had a devastating knock-on effect on our farmers. I watched a farmer speak about the impact it has had on his farm and his family. He urged Aussies to continue to eat strawberries, using the line ‘cut ’em up, don't cut ’em out’. This message really resonated with me. There’s no need to stop eating strawberries completely. Instead, simply cut them up to ensure they are safe to eat. This level-headed approach reminded me of the ‘swap it, don't stop it‘ campaign, which encourages you to make small changes to improve your health, without losing the foods you love.

Australian Healthy Food Guide @hfgaustralia #cookwithhfg hfgaustralia @HFGAustralia LETTER OF THE MONTH SPREAD THE WORD Your article ‘Butter vs spread — which is best?’ (Aug, 2018) was a great explanation of the pros and cons of both, as well as offering healthy alternatives. I showed the article to a group of over 50 men that I’m teaching to cook, because the butter versus margarine debate is a common question from them. We’ve also cooked recipes from the magazine and found them to be healthy, tasty and easy for those with their L-plates still on in the kitchen! Lisa Atwell, SA A toast to that! The open sandwich recipes in the Sept, 2018 issue were to die for! They were incredibly tasty and scrumptious. I enjoyed every bite! Monique Eames, WA Sweet balance Special thanks to Tara Leong for her up-to-date, common-sense article,…
