Before we all get completely caught up in the ‘devil-may-care’ frenzy of the party season – as highly anticipated as it may be – October is a good time to apply our minds and bodies to some lighter eating, healthier fare and generally wholesome, joyful living.
To get you inspired – and allay any fearful thoughts of deprivation – check out Fresh Living’s food editor Jana van Sittert’s healthy eating feature. From the deceptively delicious high-fibre muffins to green goddess barley risotto and Indian pork chops with chunky salsa, it contains 14 pages of recipes that are so delicious, you won’t feel like you’re missing out. And what’s more, they’re all approved by our PnP dietitian Leanne Kiezer.
If you’re a parent, you know exactly how stressful exams can be – on kids and parents alike – and how important eating well and generally keeping fit and healthy is to help ease frazzled nerves and keep those synapses firing on all pistons. Read our Wellness feature for some useful pointers to help your kids keep calm and carry on.
And if that weren’t enough, Jana’s put together some tempting yet thrifty egg recipes for the whole family, deputy food editor Liezl Vermeulen has brewed up some Halloween treats to scare and delight, and we’ve featured fast and fabulous picnic ideas, inspired by PnP’s ready-made range, to help you make hay while the sun shines.
Here’s to a happy, healthy you, inspired by the latest Fresh Living issue!
