ev­ery year, when I slip the last of the Chrissy ham into a toastie, my mind turns to healthy eat­ing. But what does healthy re­ally mean? Where do we start? What’s stand­ing in our way? These are some of the ques­tions taste.com.au asked Aus­tralians re­cently in one of the na­tion’s big­gest health sur­veys. What we dis­cov­ered was star­tling. Not only were there ma­jor gaps around rec­om­mended daily al­lowances (of fruit and veg­eta­bles, for in­stance), but healthy food was also seen as ex­pen­sive, time con­sum­ing and not as tasty. There’s also a whole load of con­fu­sion around mixed mes­sages and im­pos­si­ble food rules. So, I’m thrilled to be launch­ing taste.com.au Eat Real! We’re mak­ing 2018 the year to get real about health – we’ll prove, once and for all, that healthy doesn’t mean di­et­ing or giv­ing up favourite foods. It’s about bal­ance, and eat­ing healthy not be­cause you have to, but be­cause you love to. Get ready to change ev­ery­thing you thought about healthy! Our 19-page Eat Real fea­ture, in­clud­ing our 7-day Kick­start Meal Plan, starts on page 101. And don’t for­get to cook our front and back cov­ers this month (one ‘naughty’, one ‘nice’) to dou­ble your chances of win­ning great prizes. Here’s to a de­li­ciously easy, healthy 2018!
