A word from our editor, plus prizes to WIN!
What’s your earliest food memory? Was it baking with Nan or did your parents pass on family recipes? Often I find myself peeling an apple just the way Mum taught me as a little girl, or making one of my dad’s famous omelettes.
Developing cooking skills at an earlier age does far more than equip children for when it’s finally time to move out. New research suggests that confident young cooks make healthier adults, and eat more veg and less fast food later in life. On page 31, we go back to basics with our guide to healthy cooking. Use it as a little healthy inspiration in the kitchen, or pass it on to your children or even grandchildren.
Speaking of inspiration, tell me I’m not the only one who struggles to get up and exercise on cold, winter mornings! If you feel like your health goals have hit a plateau, turn to page 20 where leading dietitian Susie Burrell shares strategies to lose kilos — and keep them off.
We’ve also packed this issue with hearty and healthy winter meals, so you can enjoy cheesy lasagne, soups and curries that taste good and are good for you!
Plus, if you or someone in your family has coeliac disease, don’t miss our pull-out poster guide to a no-fuss, gluten-free kitchen.
Enjoy the issue!
