Product Snapshot: Sunrice Brown Rice and Barley

White rice – it’s bland, easy to eat, quick to cook, inexpensive and able to take on the flavours of anything. While it’s a nice counterpoint to other strong flavours, such as curries and spicy fare, white rice is not a nutritionist’s choice having been stripped of its nutrient-rich outer coat during milling. It’s high in refined carbs, high GI with little fibre and B vitamins for its digestion. Brown rice is the way to go …

Product Snapshot: Kellog's All-Bran Fibre Muesli

Better known for its puffs, pops, flakes and sugary cereals, Kellogg's has never gone into the muesli market. It's copped a lot of criticism for its pre-sweetened cereals aimed at kids and recently for its liquid breakfasts so I was quite surprised to receive a sample of its new High-Fibre Muesli under the better-for-you All-Bran brand which has long held reign as the cereal you reach for when you want the most fibre.

August Foodwatch Newsletter - the amazingly diverse world of yoghurt!

I'm guessing most of us have some yoghurt in the fridge. Whether it be full fat, low fat, no-fat, plain, fruit, sweetened, no-added sugar, pot set, cow's milk, goat's milk or soy we all seem to find a place for yoghurt in our diets.

Product Snapshot - Five:AM organic sweetened yoghurt

I love yoghurt! I eat it with my breakfast muesli and any time I feel like a decent snack. Oh, and served with strawberries, blueberries and passionfruit as a quick summer dessert. I keep being impressed with the flavour and ingredients in this organic yoghurt called “FIVE:AM”, that I found at the supermarket. So I thought I’d delve deeper ...

Product Snapshot: Sanitarium’s Fibre Start Drink

With claims such as “Fibre made easy” and “One-third of your daily fibre in a glass”, this new milk sounds soooo appealing to anyone who hates 'brown' fibrous food like 'branny', chaff-like cereal, smelly cabbage or heavy dark bread. But how does it stack up for real fibre? And what does it taste like? Really.

What's for breakfast? Find out in the July Foodwatch Newsletter.

Starting the day with a good breakfast is important for us all. It gives us an edge. Unfortunately 25 percent of Aussie kids leave home without it and probably an even greater percentage of adults.

That's why I think we should all start the day with a nutritious, healthy breakfast but just what is that? Our July Newsletter looks at all things "breakfast".

A healthy, high-fibre, low GI, high-protein and quick lunch from two cans

I don’t know about you but I need SOMETHING in the middle of the day, to get me from breakfast to dinner. I find it hard to make it through the whole day without a mini-meal but when you’re busy writing or working on your website, who’s got time to stop and prepare something from scratch?
