The traditional Japanese diet is a whole-foods-based diet rich in fish, seafood, and plant-based foods with minimal amounts of animal protein, added sugars, and fat.

This eating pattern is rich in nutrients and may provide numerous health benefits, including improved weight loss, digestion, longevity, and overall health.

Ten Australian bush foods coming to your plate soon

Isn’t it funny that it has taken foreign chefs embracing Australia’s native ingredients to bring greater awareness about the power they hold?

In Adelaide, it’s Scottish chef Jock Zonfrillo championing the cause, with his Orana Foundation collaborating with the University of Adelaide and the Royal Botanic Gardens to log each of the country’s native ingredients.

In Melbourne, it’s New Zealand’s Ben Shewry who has embraced Australian edibles at his Ripponlea restaurant Attica.

How much should you eat?

Thanks to Amanda Salis and University of Sydney – The conversation.

Dietary guidelines broadly recommend a daily intake of 10,000 kilojoules (2,400 calories) for men and 8,000 kilojoules (1,900 calories) for women. Is that for everyone?

Daily kilojoule requirements are based on many variables, and no two people are the same across all of these parameters. It makes sense then that if we all followed the same prescriptions for kilojoule intake, some of us would gain weight while others might lose some. That’s because any excess or deficit between the number of kilojoules you consume and the number your body uses results in weight gain or loss.

There are two options: the mathematical approach, which requires kilojoule counting, and the instinctive approach, which involves “...

19 Desserts You Won’t Believe Are Actually Healthy

When health is a top concern — whether it is because you’re dieting or simply living a healthy lifestyle — desserts can seem off-limits. But they don’t have to be! There are several ways to satisfy a sweet tooth without jeopardizing your health goals.

It’s important to note that when looking for a healthy dessert, what one person considers “healthy,” another wouldn’t. For instance, someone who avoids gluten may not be too concerned about sugar content, and someone watching their carbs might still be pro-dairy. Each dessert should be weighed against what your objectives and methods are. Still, there’s something on this list for everyone!

What most of us refer to as ‘nuts’ actually aren’t nuts at all.

It’s no secret that the peanut has been nothing more than an imposter, a legume seizing our throats and making us itchy since who knows when.

But almonds, cashews, coconuts, pecans, pistachios, macadamias and walnuts aren’t nuts either — they’re drupe seeds. Who knew?!

Whatever they are, research clearly shows they’re really good for us, with health experts saying we could probably be eating more nuts for our health. In fact, one study found people who ate a handful of nuts a day were likely to live longer than those who didn’t eat nuts.

Sleep affects every aspect of health. Fortunately, some foods and drinks contain compounds that help control parts of the sleep cycle, meaning that they may help a person both fall and stay asleep.

Sleep quality and duration can affect a wide array of conditions, including:

  • obesity
  • diabetes
  • cardiovascular disease
  • hypertension

However, getting enough sleep can be tricky. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a third of adults in the United States report not getting a healthy amount of sleep.

Endorphins – like the body’s other “happy hormones” (serotonin, dopamine, and oxytocin) – are released into the bloodstream to elicit the feeling of euphoria, enhance pleasure, relieve stress, and reduce feelings of pain...

Colours of Food

Thanks to Nautilus Independent

When it comes to food, colours is money. Food companies scan their products on the line with custom colourimeters to ensure mathematically consistent hues. Fruits and vegetables are shipped in chemically “modified” atmospheres, because “better stem and fruit colours gives better prices,” according to the website of the delivery company TransFresh. Colours is judged by a legion of standards all along the food chain. The hue of orange juice, for example, is carefully calibrated by the United States Department of Agriculture’s Orange Juice Colours Standards
