Nuts are so good for us providing healthy fats, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants & a little fibre & protein. Include them each day as a snack or part of a meal eg on breakfast, in a salad or stir-fry etc 
But before you dig into that 100g pack, nuts, while super good for us are still a source of calories so we do need to be mindful of portion size. This post shows how many of 6 different types of nuts it takes to provide around 100 calories/420 kilojoules.

When including carbohydrates at a meal, switch high Glycaemic Index (GI) carbohydrates for low GI ones. Why? All carbohydrates are broken down into sugars after consumption, high GI carbs are broken down into sugars quickly causing blood sugars to spike high & then crash leaving you tired & hungry. Low GI carbohydrates are broken down more gradually thus are more sustaining, keeping you fuller & more energized for longer. Of course always consider your portion size also. Here’s some high GI to low GI swap options from @movingdietitian

Making better food choices can really save calories/kilojoules. Here’s a way to save 2000 cal/8000kJ by making better choices of the same products. Likely you wouldn’t eat this all in one day but still a big difference over a week. Can you make a few healthier choices?

Sharing this from @webmd The E word isn’t always everyone’s favorite but the benefits are so many that it is well worth making the effort. Start small and build. Even if it’s initially just 10-15 minutes and you increase in time or start increasing your daily steps to begin with. Every move is more than you did yesterday.

Dietary fibre is an important part of our diet not only for a healthy digestive system but it also helps keep cholesterol down, regulate blood sugars & helps fill us up. If you like fruit & flake types of cereals, try the Freedom Foods Barley + Muesli range. Each 50g serve has 10-13g fibre (1/3 of our fibre needs). Other products in the Barley + range include porridge, protein clusters & bars.

Typical amount of calories & sugar in 1 teaspoon of table sugar, honey & other syrups from @nubskitchen While they may not be called 'sugar' they often have much the same calories and 'sugar' content so replacing one with the other doesn't make it 'sugar-free' or healthier. Take home message, have everything in moderation, it's ok to indulge sometimes with any of these but keep most of your food intake to foods that are unprocessed, natural and from the fresh product aisle of the supermarket.

Looking for grainy gluten free & FODMAP friendly crackers, try these crackers from Mary's Gone Crackers and Olina's Bakehouse. I've even put the Mary's Gone Crackers one out with dip and those who aren't on a gf diet has enjoyed them. Get them at some Coles or Woolworths in the Health Food Aisle.

Watch out Chobani, YoPro has launched a new high protein drinking yoghurt. These are great for those on the run. They are low in kilojoules / calories with under 400kJ/100 cal, low in carbohydrate & sugar with only between 7 & 8g carbs and they are high in protein with 15g per pack plus they are a good source of calcium. Flavour wise ? They are not very sweet but I've only tried one flavour so far, I didn't mind it but will try another between patients today.
