Healthy Food Guide - December 2015 AU...

Description

Healthy cookware has a name: GreenPan! Made from natural minerals, GreenPan was the first cookware company to create a patented Thermolon™ ceramic non-stick coating which is 100% PFTE and PFOA free. It will never blister, peel or release toxic fumes into your kitchen. Traditional non-stick cookware is coated with PTFE, a waxy, synthetic coating which decomposes at temperatures above 260° C/500°F, releasing fumes which may harm your health and the environment. GreenPan’s Rio collection is suitable for most stove tops and features a stay-cool bakelite handle as well as an extra thick base for even heat distribution. Available exclusively at Harris Scarfe.

HFG 10TH BIRTHDAY

celebration!

welcome W

e’re celebrating this month with great ideas for a healthier, lighter and happier Christmas. We’re also marking our own festive milestone: It’s our 10th birthday! When HFG launched in 2005, its small size enabled you to take it shopping. (Back then the idea you could carry your shopping info on your smart phone was only a twinkle in Steve Jobs’ eye!) At that time, foods like quinoa and chia were obscure ingredients found only

in health food stores. Well, how things have changed! Now that interest in nourishing food has exploded, we’re demanding that our local supermarkets and mainstream food brands keep up with our appetite for healthy eating. We’re proud to be an ongoing part of that shift and we’re grateful to all of you who are making the journey with us. So to celebrate we’re giving you some fabulous birthday gifts. Turn to page 38 and you could win a delivery box of fresh vegies, a stylish new barbecue, an amazing Vitamix, and much more. Enjoy!

Andrea Duvall, Editor

Keep up to date with the latest in health and food news.

SMS HEART HEALTH Is how likely you are to gain back weight after a diet if you think of foods as ‘good’ or ‘bad’. The more rigid your thinking, the more you risk judging eating habits as ‘success’ or ‘failure’. (That’s worth keeping in mind this silly season!) J Health Psychol, 2015

SMS is the latest tool to have a revolutionary effect on our health. People suffering from heart disease made serious lifestyle changes, thanks to motivating messages sent four times a week such as, ‘Walking is cheap. It can be done almost anywhere.’ By six months participants had improved cholesterol levels and blood pressure, and had lost weight too.

Put a coin in the slot of this new vending machine and out pops a salad.

When the kids leave home, parents are less likely to eat well, with some only having a cup of tea for dinner. It’s time to step up to the plate! Research conducted by Seven Seas, 2015

People who pick di are likely to compe eating more junk, a to a 10-year study eating patterns of 22,000 people. It may be because after a low-kilojoule drink people then seek the energy elsewhere grabbing a sugary snack. Or they could be rewarding their ‘good’ choice with a bag of chips or a muffin. of tea anyone? Nutr Diet, 2015

Brooke Longfield Healthy Food Guide Accredited Practising Dietitian

F 15 HOUR FEEDING FRENZY Sounds crazy, right? Well, you might be doing this if your eating habits look like this: brekkie, morning tea, lunch, a slice of cake for a colleague’s birthday, pre-dinner nibbles, dinner, TV snack, and a glass of soothing milk before bed. In fact, many of us are eating for most of our waking day, according to a recent study. If that sounds like you, there’s some evidence that limiting your eating times to an eight to twelve-hour window is a very effective way to manage your weight. Cell Metabolism, 2015

But the good news is this visual stimulation can be used to increase kids’ vegie consumption. So if your child is a fussy eater, try to whet their appetite by showing them pictures of fruit and veg.

FLAMIN’ PINEAPPLES!

Refreshing pineapple is great in summer, but why not turn up the heat? Throw it on the grill, watch it go golden and then enjoy the caramelised flavour! A quarter of a pineapple has just 200kJ (48cal), plus you’ll get a good hit of fibre and vitamin C. So try these three easy steps for a delicious dessert on a balmy night: Peel and slice pineapple into thick wedges or rings; dust with cinnamon. Grill fruit on barbecue hotplate for 1–2 minutes per side, or until slightly charred and caramelised. Serve hot pineapple on its own, or with a dollop of Greek-style yoghurt or ice cream. And you’ve got a perfect summer treat!
