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. “Healthy eating needn’t be complicated,” says Sophia. “Our Eat Well sunflower makes eating healthily simple, without compromising on taste.”
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.
