Nutrition is imperative to our health and wellbeing. We hear a lot about nutrition – and the information can be conflicting and confusing. One thing however is for sure – as a nation we're getting fatter, and our healthy Australian image is becoming a mirage.
Tonic will delve into what we eat, why we eat the way we do and how we can all learn healthy behaviours to carry with us for the rest of our lives.
We'll also share what's fresh and in season and look at the role different foods play in our bodies.
Here you'll find healthy, nutritious recipes you and your family can enjoy. Tonic is about encouraging simple, healthy, delicious cooking that tastes great and is genuinely good for you. If you have healthy recipes you'd like to share, we'd love to hear from you. Contact us here.
We encourage viewers to go 'meatless' just two days a week to help save those creeping kilos associated with everyday meat consumption. Meat lover Jimmy and healthy food fanatic Nikki battle it out in the kitchen to see whose dish comes out on top for nutritional value and taste!
Let us help you 'minus the meat' with these delicious, nutritious meals for the whole family.
Food for thought uses the best nutritional information to look at different foods and the roles they play in our body. Watch this space for what's in season as well as the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to our diet and the foods we consume.
