  • Wondering how to eat more beans and legumes?  Check out our Chicken and Bean Fajitas recipe. 

  • Choose fruit and vegies in season. They taste great and are often cheaper too - check out our guide to what's in season now.

  • Eat at the dinner table rather than in front of the TV or other electronic devices. This makes it easier to pay attention to how much we're eating.

  • It's not always easy but try to avoid shopping on an empty stomach. Try eating a healthy snack before leaving home.

  • Many of us use packaged food from time to time. To help work out healthier options, check out the BUPA FoodSwitch app. Simply scan the barcode of the food or drink items to see a list of healthier options based on fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt content. Download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.
