Nutrition Australia  Inspiring healthy eating 🍅🥕🌽 Information/ Education/ Inspiration/ Nutrition Week/ Healthy Eating Pyramid/ Healthy Lunchbox Week/ Try for 5 #natryfor5

We’re often surrounded by cheap, heavily promoted unhealthy foods requiring willpower to resist. It’s part of the reason the population is heavier. We’re bombarded by marketing so be mindful of foods you purchase & selective about what’s going to satisfy 😊

Guest speaker Margaret with Prevention Magazine editor Andrea Duvall & some special guests discussing health & ageing. Margaret notes: treat/celebration food & drinks are part of most cultures BUT they’re not every day foods. We shouldn’t totally eliminate them but we must be mindful when eating them. If you overindulge, just try to get back to a healthy eating plan #prevention #PositiveAgeingSeminar .

As of 1 July (that’s tmo!) plastic bags won’t available in major supermarkets in Vic, NSW, WA & Qld so make sure you are #greenbagready 👌

And as we head into chilly July, some of the delicious winter veg produce available includes Asian greens, beetroot, carrots, cabbage, parsnips, pumpkin, sweet potato & zucchini; just to name a few. 🥕Fruit includes apples, pears, lemons, limes, quinces, rhubarb, grapefruit, tangelos & tangerines 🍊 And if you’re up for roasting chestnuts, they’re delicious this time of year too!

Remember, there’s an abundance of seasonal fruit and veg, so load up those green bags & cook up a storm! .

Our #healthyeatingpyramid 🔼 encourages food variety from each of the 5 core food groups. Plant foods (veg, legumes, fruit & grains) should make up the largest portion of our diet, at around 70% of what we eat. 🥦🍞🍎
A great way to up your legume/veg consumption is making your own home-made baked beans. Ideal for breakfast, lunch or dinner, they’ll keep you full for longer. Packed with protein & fibre these beans for two are easy to make, plus being low GI, they’ll help keep your blood sugar levels stable 👍
To make this delicious dish check out the recipe in the comments ⬇️ .

This week we’re celebrating #WholeGrainWeek 👍Whole grains are not only full of fibre but they’re packed with more than 25 other nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, protein & even antioxidants! They’re cost effective & only take an extra 4 minutes longer to cook than regular grains! Get your grain on! 🍞👊

Many people avoid whole grains, thinking they’re more expensive than refined, but in fact there’s little to no difference in price! Bread, pasta, rice, quinoa and couscous all come in at 50c or less per serve, making them a cost-effective, nutritious choice.

It’s the long weekend! We hope yours is off to a flying start with a healthy breakfast 😀 Plus, are you looking for ways to use uneaten fruit? Apples are plentiful this time of year so great way to prolong their life is to stew in a little water & use as meal or snack base. This steaming hot bowl of porridge has the best of both worlds with steamed & sliced apple, plus crushed almonds, a handful of berries & a drizzle of honey 🍯

Did you know today is not only the first day of winter but it's also world milk day! ❄️🐄As a natural source of nutrition, it's the biggest contributor of calcium to our diet & provides a host of other nutrients for good health. As a guide to how many servings of dairy you should be having per day you can easily use the "dairy serves calculator" on the "legendairy" website or visit our webpage, click on "Resources", search for milk; then ask yourself, are you having enough?! 🤔❤️

Kalettes. Tried them yet? A delicious hybrid between kale & brussel sprouts, their mild, nutty flavour is a must-try😋 Combine with a healthy "green goddess" sauce & you've got a wonderful crispy side for lunch & dinners. They're easy to find (at the supermarket) and super quick to prep & cook; coat the kalettes in a little extra virgin olive oil, crank the oven up high to 240° & roast for 5 minutes. Before serving, drizzle with your green goddess sauce (this one blended Greek yoghurt, parsley, tarragon & chives with a dash of lemon juice). Enjoy!
