    Supermarket Swindles: How to read food labels & make healthier choices

    Marketers do a great job making products more appealing to consumers, especially on the shelves of your local supermarket.  Thankfully it’s my job as a nutritionist to help you cut through the hype and sort fact from fiction.

    These days, choosing healthy options is a minefield of competing product claims, making it virtually impossible for anyone without a Food Science degree to make sense of it all.  But not anymore.

    Supermarket Swindles: How to read food labels & make healthier choices

    If you’re trying to stick to a diet or healthy eating plan, you need to know what you’re actually eating and sometimes the supermarket labels can be deceiving.  You need to be able to navigate the sometimes wildly exaggerated health claims of product labels to know if a product is truly healthy or is it just a marketing hype. So if you’re searching ‘how to read food labels’, now is the perfect time to learn your way around a food label and it’s easy with our guidance.

    Lucky for us, food labelling in Australia is governed by Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) which means we have a consistent set of information that must be contained on every label.  So really, those healthy choices are right in front of you, you just need to be able to make sense of it all.  And that’s where we come in.

    Zoe Bingley-Pullin: Meal Planning Made Simple – Just 5 Minutes Per Week

    There are so many benefits to meal planning, it’s a wonder that more people don’t do it.  I have found that some are reluctant to give it a go as they think it’s too hard or they doubt themselves in the kitchen.  Others find excuses like “I don’t know what I’ll feel like eating on Thursday” or they try it but don’t keep it going long term.  In this article I want to show you just how easy it can be.  Once you’ve got the hang of it, I promise, you will be confidently meal planning in just 5 minutes per week!

If this sounds like you, then here’s some tips for getting the balance right again, but first – get your pantry organised.

  6. Dr. Joanna McMillan: GI? What are good carbs?

    GI? What are good carbs?

    When we classify foods based on how much carbs, fat and protein they contain, is it really helping us determine how healthy they are? In decades past we blamed fat for our expanding waistlines and it became the dietary demon. Out went any food with significant levels of fat and in came a flurry of fat-free and low fat foods to fill our shopping trolleys.

    Unfortunately, we threw the proverbial baby out with the bathwater and although going low fat meant no more croissants, pies and chocolate bars, it also meant no nuts, avocado or extra virgin olive oil – all foods that are fabulously nutrient-rich and that are not only good for health but can actually help us to control our weight.

  8. Dr. Joanna: What I Look for in Home Delivery Meals

    Dr. Joanna McMillan on Home Delivery Meals

    I look to cook. But I hate having to cook when it’s just assumed I will. When that “what’s for dinner?” question is thrown at me when I’m still at my desk after 5pm, cooking becomes a chore. Another thing I have to get done in my day.

    It’s not always that way. When I’m organised, there is food in the fridge and I roughly know what I’m going to whip up, getting in the kitchen is a pleasure.

    So, what to do on the nights where my enthusiasm to cook is under par? I outsource. I want someone else to do the cooking for me. But, I still want to eat well. Fortunately there are some great options for ready-made meals and you’ve already guessed no doubt that Dietlicious gets my tick of approval. But why?
