Description

Did you know that two eggs have less saturated fat than the 'unsaturated' margarine the average person spreads on their toast? Or that Australians throw out 7.5 million tonnes of food each year - enough for three hearty meals for 13.6 million people? Food has become complicated. Every time we go shopping we're confronted by an overwhelming amount of choice and information. Eggs - yes or no? What's the latest superfood? How many food miles has our shopping trolley clocked up? Are organic foods worth the extra money? Rosemary Stanton, Australia's most respected nutritionist, takes a critical look at the key foods, drinks and supplements that line our supermarket shelves, weighs up the nutritional benefits (or concerns) and differing theories and associated environmental costs, and provides commonsense advice to help make shopping and eating simpler, healthier, cheaper and more sustainable.show more
