  • Like Mexican food? Try making your own Mexican seasoning by combining 1 teaspoon of ground cumin, dried oregano, and sweet paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon of chilli powder.

  • We are lucky in the ACT that we have such clean drinking water. When you head out, make sure you take a full water bottle from home. It will keep you hydrated as well as saving you money.

  • Fruit is great for on-the-go snacks. Have a bowl of fresh fruit on the kitchen bench and replace your normal morning tea with a piece. There are also plenty of snack recipes in our Recipes section that include fruit such as Apricot and Coconut balls and Energy Slice.

  • Drinking tap water instead of sugary drinks will not only improve your health, it will save you money.
