Australian Foodies Share Their Healthy Eating Tips

6Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring, nor does it have to be complicated. It's all about understanding what to do with good food, what to order and what to shop for.

Good Food rounded up some foodies to ask their healthy eating tips:

Michael Pollen: Author of Food Rules

Tip: Keep it simple, eat mostly plants and watch your portion size.

Neil Perry: Chef

Tip: Eat as many vegetables as you can and treat items such as steak as luxury items by eating them once a fortnight. Instead, look for good quality seasonings to jazz up vegetables and always use fresh lemon.

Catie Gett: Clinical naturopath

Tip: Get as much coconut into your diet as possible. Use coconut oil in stir-fries, add flaked coconut to your muesli and use coconut flour as a thickener.

Ian Curley: Chef

Tip: Stock up on good snacks such as currants and macadamias to keep you away from snacking on chips and lollies.

Professor Avni Sali:Director of the National Institute of Integrative Medicine

Tip: Eat together as a family or invite friends over to join you for a meal. Eating around a dinner table helps you to unwind, lets you unburden work problems and allows you to have fun – all of which are key in maintaining good health.
