Most of us are back at work at this stage – and if you’re not, please tell us what it is that you do because we want to do it too! Still, being back at work also means we’re back into some kind of routine, which is excellent. We don’t know about you, but we like a bit of routine. Part of eating well is planning ahead, and who wants to do that when you’re on holiday? It’s not that eating low carb is difficult in any way – even if the meals weren’t as delicious as they are, we’d want to stick to it solely because of the way it makes us feel: better sleep, more energy, fewer mood swings… the low carb lifestyle is a no-brainer when you take…

Know your ABCs Which gives you more vitamins: meat, fish and eggs or fruit and veg? That’s easy, you say – fruit and veg, of course. Well, if it’s about vitamin C, yes. But for A and B (and others), things become more nuanced. We checked a couple of favourites on the USDA Nutrient Database. For the sake of simplicity, we narrowed it down to vitamins A, B12 and C. All values are for 100g of each food. Tuna canned in water A = 17μg B12 = 2.55μg C = 0 Ground beef, 80% lean/20% fat,pan-browned A = 3μg B12 = 2.8μg C = 0 Eggs, boiled A = 149μg B12 = 1.11μg C = 0 Cooked broccoli A = 77μg B12 = 0μg vitamin C = 64.9mg Lettuce A = 370μg B12 = 0μg C = 9.2mg Bananas A = 3μg B12 = 0μg C = 8.7mg The takeout? It’s yet another argument for a…

‘just hang in there and tell yourself you are worth it!’

‘I started getting chubby when I went to school. At first it didn’t bother me at all, but a comment from my friends on sports day really hurt. I’d headed across the field to buy some treats at the tuck shop, and by the time I got back to them, I was sweating quite a lot. “Did we miss the 1200m run?” they asked. It was really upsetting, but if it weren’t for that, I would have just carried on the way I was. I didn’t participate in many school activities; I wasn’t active in any way. Food was my life; I enjoyed eating – and sweet treats most of all. I got to a point when I couldn’t go a day without eating chocolates, cake or dessert. I drank…

this month’s miracle ingredient: avocado oil

Until fairly recently, olive oil and coconut oil enjoyed most of the attention but, as health-conscious consumers become more educated, avocado oil has begun to grow steadily in popularity. It is high in the monounsaturated omega-9 fatty acid, oleic acid; several B vitamins and vitamin K, and has a moderate amount of vitamin E, magnesium and potassium. Avocado oil is pressed from the fleshy pulp of the avocado, not the pip. The oil has a smooth, silky texture and mild nutty flavour. In fact, it doesn’t taste much like avocado at all, which is a bonus if you’re one of the unlucky few who don’t like avocados. The addition of avocado oil to a meal boosts the absorption of carotenoids found in the vegetables. Carotenoids are phytonutrients that help fight free radical…
