These are the questions we answered:
- Ian Rankine How do I get fast food that is nutritious tasty and healthy but takes less than 15mins to prepare.
- Elizabeth Gillam Ronsley it is getting healthy food when traveling. I know my locals and where to go in Brisbane but when interstate or overseas options are limited. I usually end up going to Coles or Woolies supermarkets they are usually open till late
- Rosemary Shapiro-Liu Temptation. Have the knowledge but not always the discipline
- Amy Roche I like Elizabeth Gillam suggestion, if you are looking at High Achievers, where can we get the healthiest meals while traveling.
- Marcus Looby I want the low down on the quality of meat in Australia. Obviously certified organic ensures that your meat is free from chemicals. But what is the quality of non organic meat in Australia. Woolies talks about hormone free beef – does that guarantee anything. I have heard that most cattle in Australia are grass fed. There is also lots of words like free range etc – what does that actually mean?
- Trish Everett Getting enthusiastic and inspire about cooking
- Audrey Dawson Hi Ronsley. Biggest challenge for me is definitely time. I love cooking but when I don’t think that I gave time it becomes annoying. Need simple, nutritious and minimum ingredients.
- Noela Ollenburg Biggest challenge is finding yummy low fibre snack type food recipes (e.g. no nuts, no seeds) as recommended by dietician… it is a struggle, even Mr Google does not understand and gives high fibre options. if you can help with this, it will be such a blessing.
- Alison McGrath Mine is boring but here it is Ronsley Vaz How to stop the habit of mindless eating late evening especially when you are tired but just want to do ‘one more thing’ on the computer?
- Sandra Connors OMG Alison McGrath, you hit the nail on the head! I’ve been working from 8.30pm till 3am for the last 7 months to match international client’s times and I’ve put on at least 5 kgs snacking on cashews, walnuts & other nonsense while trying to stay awake editing. I work 9am – 2pm during the day-no “mindless eating”…but hit midnight & it’s on for young and old lol
- Jessica Shaanan My biggest challenge is how to make a clean meal quickly (6 minutes or less). Is throwing a bunch of ingredients into a vitamix going to give me what I need, or will it kill all the good stuff and mainly leave me with the fiber? More of a question than a challenge: What are the actual nutritional values and setbacks of non-organic fruits and veggies? Because preservatives are weight loss inhibitors, I wonder what else they do, and GMO products (most food on shelves) are a big question mark.
