Golden Rules for Healthy Eating #4

Rule n°4 : Cooking tip: Eat fruit and veg at every meal 

You already know that fruit and vegetables are good for your health. But most of us have difficulty eating them at every meal. Go for some creative cooking, and add a splash of colour to your meals with the help of some seasonal or exotic fruit and veg.

Golden Rules for Healthy Eating #5

Cooking in technicolour!

If you find it hard to eat fruit and veg raw, and steamed vegetables don’t rock your boat, try to add a few healthy splashes of colour to all your meals. For example, you could add some green beans and julienned carrots to a dish of saffron rice, to create an eye-catching and delicious combination.

The spices used in Indian and Mexican dishes will allow you to concoct a whole range of veggie-filled dishes with a bit of zing! Tacos, fajitas, prawn curry or prawn biryani – you’ll get your 5-a-day without even thinking about it!

And armed with your Actifry, you’ll be able to work miracles – carrot chips, caramelised pineapple and mango, mixed spring vegetables, whoever said eating fruit and veg was a chore?! And to vary the flavours (and the colours!), make the most of both seasonal and exotic fruit. The different shapes and textures are sure to brighten up all your dishes. You can even combine them in a Russian or fruit salad, in kebabs, or team them with your homemade yoghurt!
