Christmas is such a special time and we’ve prepared ahead to help take the worry out of inviting friends and family for a gathering. Grazing platters and tables are all the rage and regardless if it’s the night before Christmas or New Years Eve, we'll have some delicious bespoke grain and legume ideas from us at the Grains & Legumes Nutrition Council next week. Happy prepping…
To support our grazing platters, we've got two deliciously complimentary recipes from Campbell Arnotts and McKenzies.
We’re also right on trend with our meat-alternatives research. Read all about this topical and rapidly growing segment of the supermarket and decide for yourself about these products… or maybe you’d prefer to get your plant proteins from legumes??? We've got just what you need with inspiration on Australia’s favourite legume - the humble chickpea!
Did you know that Aussies eat an average of 2 and a half slices of bread per day*? Our latest audit on the bread category highlights this staple, and some of the key nutrients across breads on Australian supermarket shelves. Most importantly, the average whole grain content in whole grain breads is a massive 40g per serve, which is more than 80% of the 48g Daily Target Intake (DTI) for whole grain. It just goes to show, one simple change to the bread you eat really can help you reach your target!
