10 TIPS FOR STRESS-FREE HEALTHY FOOD

According to Callum Hann and Themis Chryssidis’ cookbook, Quick.Easy.Healthy, it’s super simple to eat good food every day. Like it’s straight shooting title, they’ve taken the fuss out of healthy food and filled the book with only useful and relevant information on incorporating smart cooking practices into your life. Forget hard-to-find exotic ingredients and exhausting marathon cook ups – these are the duo’s top tips for stress-free healthy food.

10 TIPS FOR STRESS-FREE HEALTHY FOOD

1. Plan your meals—choose quick meals for busy days and nights and save meals requiring more preparation for when you have the time.
2. Shop regularly—develop a routine, choose a day and prioritise this day.
3. Pre-chop fruits and vegetables and leave these in your fridge for use when required.
4. Always keep some frozen vegetables in the freezer
5. Use herbs and spices for quick and easy flavour.
6. Prepare healthy snacks in bulk, such as vegetable frittatas or savoury muffins.
7. Prepare meals ahead—slow-cooked meals, curries, stews and soups all store well and are perfect for freezing.
8. Cook versatile meals, for example bolognese sauce that can also be used in bakes or chilli con carne.
9. Clean as you go—nobody likes dishes. Stay on top of them.
10. Delegate—ask everyone in the house to roll up their sleeves and pitch in. It could be as simple as boiling the pasta or warming the oven.


SIX BEHAVIOURS FOR HEALTHY LIVING

1. Drink plenty of water.
2. Eat at least five serves of vegetables a day.
3. Eat mindfully – eat slowly, savour and enjoy your food.
4. Eat regularly and do not skip meals.
5. Prioritise meal planning, shopping and cooking.
6. Exercise daily.
