I’ll be the first to admit it… winter got the better of me this year. I definitely had a few too many servings of creamy potato mash, cheesy pasta bakes and rich beef stews – not to mention chocolate in all its delectable forms – and the proof isn’t just in the pudding (or in the absence of it in this case), but on the scales, too! So I was somewhat relieved when we started creating our annual healthy issue – it’s a timely reminder that eating well without breaking the budget is absolutely possible. From our incredibly creamy less-than-500-calorie chicken carbonara (p37), at just $3.21 a serve, to our light and luscious Mediterranean Diet dinners (p18), we’re helping you make eating healthily a cinch!

ONE-POT WINNER My 8-year-old son was super excited to attempt the One-pot Pizza Pasta (May 2019, p29) as dish of choice on his night to ‘help’ cook dinner. We think it turned out like the picture in the magazine! And it tasted great, too – earning the thumbs-up from James! Adrian and James Gray, via email “THUMBS-UP FROM JAMES!” NUTS FOR NUTELLA I made the Choc-hazelnut Drip Cake (April 2017, p24) for my friend’s birthday. She loved it! Definitely a new favourite. My husband loves Nutella and has asked for another. Thank you for such a wonderful, indulgent recipe. Kathryn de’Zuna, via email TWICE AS NICE I made this dish (June 2019, p39) for my husband and me because colcannon and Irish stew are two of his favourites, but I’d never thought to combine them. I’ve…

INCLUSIVE CUPPA There’s nothing like a cuppa. Morning, noon or night, a big brew of black tea with a splash of milk cures what ails you. Except if you need to use dairy-free milk, then the results can be lumpy, curdled and split. Yuk! So Lipton, the leader in tea, took a stand and developed this specialty black tea, blended to perfectly complement non-dairy milks. Lipton’s dairy-free blend has been crafted using high quality, Rainforest Alliance certified Kenyan and Rwandan tea leaves to deliver a rich, natural taste. Find it in supermarkets for $5. FIERY FUSION Take yourself on a global snack journey with Red Rock Deli’s new Fusion range. The flavour innovators have developed two fresh and fiery limited editions, one with a tropical twist – hello, Thai Red Chilli & Creamy…

“THE MEDITERRANEAN DIET IS DELICIOUS, BUDGET-FRIENDLY AND EASY TO FOLLOW. GIVE IT A GO!”Claire Brookman, Food Director It’s well established that the Mediterranean Diet is good for long-term health, with studies showing it may lower the risk of type 2 diabetes, dementia, and bowel and prostate cancers. But what does the diet entail? It refers to the fare traditionally enjoyed by people in the region for many years, and has a focus on minimally processed foods. This includes plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, legumes, wholegrains, nuts, extra virgin olive oil and oily fish, small quantities of meat (just once or twice a week) and a small glass of wine a day, with some alcohol-free days per week. It’s delicious, budget-friendly and easy to follow. Want to give it a go?…
