fad-free zone

At Super Food Ideas central, we believe the hard way to get healthy is to deny yourself. We’re not here to tell you ‘don’t eat gluten’, or ‘eat like a cave-lady’, instead we want to help you make simple choices that make you feel good and are also good for you. Take our cover recipe, p16. Pretty much everyone I’ve ever met loves lasagne (including me), but here’s what we don’t like about it: making white sauce, messing around with the layers, and feeling a twinge of guilt ’cos we know it’s not that good for us.

The comeback kid Enticed by the front cover of the July issue, I purchased my first Super Food Ideas magazine in quite some time and my family is very pleased that I did!

tips and tricks from the test kitchen

Kim says: A masterclass on meringues, what the team has snapped this month and our test kitchen wish list MASTERCLASS Whip up meringues with ease with these tips and the whys and why-nots. TIP If you can, avoid making meringues on humid or wet days. WHY The sugar in the egg white mixture absorbs moisture from the air, causing meringues to weep, crack and collapse. TIP Use eggs at room temperature. WHY Eggs at room temperature hold more air than chilled ones when whisking. TIP Break eggs into a small bowl before transferring to the mixing bowl. WHY The smallest fleck of yolk can cause beaten egg white to deflate. Break eggs separately so you don't spoil the whole batch if yolk lands in the white. TIP Use a clean and dry metal, ceramic or glass bowl. WHY Plastic bowls…

Claire says: We’re all about variety when it comes to healthy eating – and so is the latest Australian nutrition pyramid – while we’re always open to smarter new ways to keep our food safe Pyramid power If celeb diets have left you confused about good nutrition, the new-look Healthy Eating Pyramid tells it like it is.
