Eat Well: Deliciously healthy food, best enjoyed as part of a healthy lifestyle & a balanced varied diet.
Senior nutritionist Laura Street and nutritionist Sophia Linn are our in-house experts on all things healthy eating. Thanks to their in-depth knowledge, it’s easy for you to make healthy food choices by choosing products with the Eat Well Sunflower. “This year, we’re launching our biggest ever range of healthy products,” says Laura. “It’s so exciting to be sharing products with a range of healthy benefits, which all taste absolutely amazing – it really does make following a balanced diet easy and delicious.”
Senior nutritionist Laura Street has some top tips on how to balance your plate: “Start with fruit and veg, then add a starchy carb, choosing wholegrains to add fibre. Including a source of protein is important, whether from legumes and beans or meat and fish. Then think about dairy, or dairy alternatives (if you’re avoiding dairy, choose products that are fortified).”
Laura’s creamy salmon pasta is a great example. Simply cook and combine the below for a delicious healthy meal:
100g of half-fat crème fraîche is >15%RI vitamin A (McCance and Widdowson). 80g of fresh fruit and veg counts as one of your five-a-day. 100g of salmon is high in protein and omega 3 fatty acids. 100g of wholewheat penne contains >6g of fibre.
Hearty portobello mushrooms with black rice, squash and kale and a vibrant turmeric and yoghurt dressing, this packs in two of your five-a-day, has balanced carbs and is a source of protein
A delicious combination of chargrilled chicken, spiced rice, beans and chickpeas with chipotle salsa. High in protein, less than 500 calories and one of your five-a-day
This flavour-packed low-fat chilli combines lean turkey with pork, hearty beans and fresh veg alongside nutty brown rice and quinoa. One of your five-a-day and high in protein
