CAU­LI­FLOWER Why it’s good for you: This is the quiet achiever of win­ter ve­g­ies, and it con­tains a sur­pris­ing amount of nu­tri­ents. It’s a source of an­tiox­i­dants and phy­tonu­tri­ents, which can help pre­vent can­cer, plus it con­tains fi­bre, vi­ta­mins C, K and B6, and fo­late. Buy­ing tips: Cau­li­flower flo­rets should be firm and tightly closed. How to use it: Cau­li­flower works well as a gluten- free pizza base, mashed like potato or roasted with chick­peas.

FIFO STRESS An Edith Cowan Univer­sity study has found fly- in- fly- out work­ers are more than twice as likely to suf­fer from de­pres­sion com­pared with the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion. The sur­vey of 629 West Aus­tralian FIFO work­ers found 28 per cent showed signs of de­pres­sion, com­pared with 13 per cent of the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion. Re­searchers also found FIFO work­ers showed higher rates of stress and anx­i­ety than the gen­eral pop­u­la­tion.
