Knowing what makes up a healthy diet can be really confusing. New fads and fast fixes appear weekly. At the same time, the rise of celebrity chefs and TV cooking – while admittedly entertaining – has made preparing food seem complex and often unachievable.
A staggering 95% of Aussies don’t eat enough vegetables. Veggies contain fibre and micronutrients essential for gut, brain, heart and skin health, so they should make up the basis of most meals. And consciously thinking of ways to include more veggies might mean you’ll eat fewer processed foods which can be high in salt, unhealthy fats and hidden sugars.
When it comes to meat, you don’t have to lose it all together. You should aim for once or twice a week in smaller serves, buying the best quality you can afford and wasting none.
Fill your fridge and pantry with whole, unprocessed foods and not products. This helps to avoid added sugar and salt, which are often hidden in processed products with long and complex ingredient lists.
And you should try to eat with others. By turning off our phones and dining with others, we’re more likely to slow our eating and give our stomachs and brains time to sync on whether we’re full or not. So we’re likely to serve less, eat less and even waste less.
Across the day we need a good mix of fibre and protein for energy and to keep us full. These recipes are quick, simple and flexible – so feel free to substitute the ingredients for those you love more. Finally, these meals store well. So you can cook it once and eat for the week ahead, packing servings for school or work.
Whole oats are a great source of fibre, protein and sustained energy - and fresh fruit provides flavour without having to add sugar.
