shake your way to healthy

Being a health and nutrition correspondent means that companies frequently send me their products, and ask for my stamp of approval. Most of the time I dive into research, give the product a try, and send the company honest feedback about what they’ll need to change before I’ll recommend it. Plus my hectic job and my determination to stay fit means I’m always hunting for a quick and nutritious way to fill up on nutrients my body needs. So I can confidently say, “I’ve tried it all”.Last Tuesday work was especially hectic, but I’d booked with my $200 an hour personal trainer, Tony, a triathlon winning, organic-to-the-bone fitness guy with a ten mile long track record of whipping the “who’s who” into shape in record time, so I had to…

Animals!We also learned that you’re big into supplements, and 70% of you want more information on them, with probiotics in the lead, followed by a few other key supps.Your number one health goal is to reduce sugar intake followed by healthy weight loss and maintenance, which brings me to this issue.

Q/ How can I save a dish when I oversalt?A/ So long as the lid on the salt shaker hasn’t fallen off and a sizable quantity poured in (in which case, it’s best to start over), most liquid-based dishes (think soups and stews) can be salvaged by adding water. Start with a tablespoon at a time and taste as you go, as you will need to increase the other ingredients in the recipe to maintain the flavor (for example, more fresh herbs or tomato purée). If you’ve oversalted solid ingredients (such as a pot of grains, beans or a veggie side), try mixing a second, plain version into the first. Adding a dollop of yogurt or sour cream can also bring balance. Cream, milk or unsalted butter are quick fixes…
