Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - CONTENTS - Brooke Long­field, Editor

A word from our editor, plus prizes to WIN!

As we en­ter the first month of win­ter, it’s only fit­ting we talk about colds and flus. Re­search tells us that the av­er­age Aussie bat­tles through four colds a year, so some of you might even be reach­ing for the tis­sue box as you read this.

You’ll be re­lieved to find out there’s so much more you can do to fight off germs and bugs than load­ing up on vi­ta­min C and chicken soup. On page 20, we ex­am­ine the im­por­tant role your gut bac­te­ria play in your im­mune sys­tem. And on page 65 you will find de­li­cious recipes us­ing gut-friendly, pro­bi­otic-rich in­gre­di­ents like miso and kim­chi.

While luck­ily I don’t catch many colds, I do suf­fer from headaches. Of­ten de­ci­pher­ing lit­tle nig­gles like headaches and dry skin can be tricky, which is why we think you’ll love our ‘Body Lan­guage’ story on page 30. Who would have thought that the mag­ne­sium found in av­o­ca­dos and al­monds could help pre­vent headaches?

Win­ter is also the time to pack away the bar­be­cue and turn up the heat in the kitchen. We’ve ex­per­i­mented with In­dian spices and in­gre­di­ents on page 49 to bring you hearty com­fort food. And our de­li­cious cover recipe of spicy baked eggs on page 62 is per­fect for chilly morn­ings.

Stay warm and healthy this win­ter, and en­joy the is­sue!
