Ever wondered what a team of dietitians and foodies eat for lunch at work every day? Well, sorry to disappoint, but most days it’s leafy salads with an array of tasty toppings, from toasted nuts and roasted veg to marinated feta (my favourite). However, I’ll admit that our team is the first to run to the kitchen when cake is on offer… it’s all about balance, right? One thing we do find tricky is sitting at a desk all day. Around 80 per cent of Aussie workers have to do some sitting at work, so we’re not alone.

your say

Tempting toasties The toastie recipes in the July, 2018 issue look very similar to toasties in a cafe close to me, but the ingredients are healthier and they work out at half the cost! Toasties are always so popular with our family and now, with these new recipes, we can move beyond the usual ham and cheese option. Sonja Matla, VIC Fact vs fiction I loved the article on what to eat for a healthy gut (June, 2018). I find this a difficult area to source really reliable information at the moment, as there are so many fad related products out there. Thank you for clearing up all the nutrition nonsense!
