8 THE A-Z OF NUTRITION A super-handy explanation of Want to eat more healthily? I think most of us would answer ‘yes’ to that (particularly as the summer beckons!), but it’s the one thing we never seem to strike off our ‘to do’ lists – simply because eating healthily feels like too much of a struggle; it just feels too hard. But what if we could help make it feel a little easier? What if we could show you that healthy food really can be tasty? And that it can be just as quick – and affordable – to eat healthily as it is to eat unhealthily? Well, this issue, we’re going to show you how to do just that. It can be confusing trying to work out what eating healthily really means – but we’re here to help separate fact from fiction, to make it easier to make better, more informed food choices – so that we can help our kids make those choices, too. As usual, this issue is chock-full of delicious recipes. But what sets it apart is that they’re all healthy in some way. We’ve also got ideas for how to make the foods you already love more nutrient-rich. So, what are you waiting for? Tuck in!

A-Z

OF NUTRITION

A

VITAMIN A (AND BETA-CAROTENE) Needed for normal function of the immune system, skin and eyes. Found in a range of foods, including dairy, eggs and oil-rich fish. Beta-carotene, in yellow, orange and red fruit and veg, is converted into vitamin A in the body. Men need 0·7mg/day; women 0·6mg.

D

VITAMIN D Helps regulate calcium and phosphate levels, needed for healthy bones, teeth and muscles. Only found in a few foods (oily fish, red meat, egg yolks and fortified foods), but for part of the year most of us can make enough through exposure to sunlight. From October to March, everyone (except babies under one) is advised to take a daily 10mg supplement*. Adults need 10mcg/day.

B

B VITAMINS A group of vitamins that helps us convert the energy in food into energy the body can use. Some are important for making red blood cells. Present in many foods including milk, leafy veg, wholegrain cereals and meat.

E F H

GLYCAEMIC INDEX (GI) A rating system that indicates how quickly carbohydrate-containing foods are broken down into sugar and how that affects blood sugar levels (glucose). Foods with a low-tomedium GI (eg beans and pulses, porridge oats, vegetables) break down more slowly, helping keep blood sugar levels stable.

C

VITAMIN E Keeps skin, eyes and immune system working normally. Sources include olive oil, nuts, seeds and wheatgerm. Men need 4mg/day; women 3mg.

CALCIUM A mineral needed for strong bones and teeth. A lack of it, particularly while bones are growing, can increase the risk of osteoporosis (brittle bones) in later life. Dairy products are the best source. Non-dairy sources include dark green leafy vegetables, tofu, almonds and bony tinned fish where the bones are eaten, such as sardines Adults need 700mg/day.

FOLATE Also known as folic acid; a B vitamin that helps make red blood cells. Important for women aiming to conceive and in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy as it reduces the risk of birth defects, such as spina bifida. Sources include asparagus, spinach and fortified breakfast cereals. HEART-HEALTHY FATS Swap a diet high in saturated fat (found in butter, biscuits, fatty meat, cheese and cream) for unsaturated fats (the type in oils, nuts, avocados and oily fish), to help reduce risk of heart attack or stroke. Adults should aim to eat no more than 20g saturated fat per day.

IRON A mineral used to make red blood cells, it’s most easily absorbed from red meat. Vegetarians should get it from a variety of sources, including dried apricots and kale. Men aged 19-64 and women over 50 need 8·7mg/day; women 19-50 need 14·8mg/day.

J

JUICE A small glass (150ml) of pure vegetable or fruit juice is one of your five a day and the vitamin C in fruit juice helps the body absorb iron. Vitamin C helps keep cells healthy and aids wounds to heal.

K

8

VITAMIN K Required for normal blood clotting and maintenance of bones. Good sources include green leafy veg and vegetable oils. Adults need 1mcg/day per kg body weight.

SECRETS TO SUCCESS

TOP OF THE CLASS I picked up Tesco Magazine for the first time today and I’m amazed at how much is in it. I’m a teacher and had been wondering what to make with my pupils for them to take home for Mother’s Day; the strawberry heart truffles and mini heart jewellery dishes are perfect for them to try. Looking forward to more lovely ideas. Fiona Hamilton, Aberdeenshire

@Tesco

Wow! The Secret Ingredients feature (March) really has set the cat among the pigeons in our house! I’ve just tried banana in my curry and mayo in my chocolate cake. What a difference these additions make. My family think I’m the best cook ever but I’m not telling them my secrets. Thank you for such clever ideas that transform my cooking.

WRITE ON I’m so excited about The Bullet Diary (March) that I couldn’t resist writing in. I hadn’t heard of doing this but I’m going to buy a notepad and give it a go. It sounds perfect for me – I’m rubbish at noting what I’ve done and it’s too easy to forget the good things on tough days. I can’t wait to get cracking! Sharon Saunders, West Midlands

GLOSSARY

L

LESS SUGAR Most people need to consume less ‘free’ sugar (sugar added to food and drinks); it should make up no more than 5 per cent (about 30g; less for children) of our total calories. Food labels give total sugar, including those naturally occurring in fruit and milk.

N

M

MINERALS Includes selenium (in oily fish and wholegrains), potassium (in fruit and veg), calcium (in dairy and veg) and magnesium (in wholegrains and leafy veg). All needed in small amounts to keep the body working properly.

P

Q

WORDS: ANNA CRANE, FIONA HUNTER PHOTOGRAPHY GETTY IMAGES *Public Health England

PROTEIN Needed for the growth and repair of cells and found in lots of foods including meat, fish, eggs, dairy, nuts, beans and pulses. Food and recipes labelled a source of protein contain 12 per cent of calories as protein; those labelled high provide at least 20 per cent of calories. Men need around 55g/day; women 45g.

V

VEGAN AND VEGETARIAN DIETS Offer a number of health benefits, including reduced risk of heart disease and cancer. But meat provides important vitamins and minerals so alternative sources are essential for those on a meat-free diet.

W

NUMBER OF CALORIES Energy in food is measured in kilocalories (kcals), often called calories. Eat more than you need and they’re stored as fat. Men need about 2,500kcals/day; women about 2,000kcals.

S

SALT/SODIUM We all need sodium, but an excess increases risk of high blood pressure, heart attacks and stroke. Aim for less than 6g salt a day (or 2·4g of sodium; salt is made up of sodium and chloride). Foods with more than 1·5g salt (0·6g sodium) per 100g are considered high in salt.

T X

OMEGA-3 AND OMEGA-6 Essential fats are needed for normal function of the heart. Get enough omega-3 from one portion of oily fish a week; omega-6 is found in vegetable oils.

QUANTITY OF FRUIT AND VEG Official guidelines say at least five portions a day, gained from different sources. A portion is 80g fresh, frozen or tinned fruit or veg, 30g dried fruit, 150ml pure juice or 3 heaped tbsp pulses. Juice and pulses count as one portion, however many you have.

TRAFFIC LIGHTS An at-a-glance colour guide on packaged food (and below our recipes) that shows whether the food contains a low (green), medium (amber) or high (red) amount of fat, saturates, sugar and salt per 100g. The panel has more detail on nutrients per serving.

WATER To stay hydrated, aim to drink between 1·6 and 2 litres a day on top of what you eat. Can include tea, coffee, fruit juice and milk (watch your sugar and caffeine levels).

O

U

Z

EXCESS CHOLESTEROL High cholesterol is known to increase the risk of heart disease. Some foods contain cholesterol, but most of it in our blood is made in the body. A diet high in saturated fat is known to raise cholesterol.

Y

R

YOUR GUIDE TO LOW FAT Recipes labelled as low fat must have no more than 3g per 100g. To be labelled fat free, a food must have no more than 0·5g per 100g.

REFERENCE INTAKE (RI) The amount of a nutrient you need daily. Packaged food labels show the percentage RI; we also give figures for our recipes. Nutrient reference values for vitamins and minerals depend on age and gender.

UP YOUR FIBRE Most Brits need more fibre. A report from the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) recommends adults aim for 30g a day – current intakes are around 18g. Increase your fibre intake by eating foods such as wholemeal bread and cereals.

ZINC Contributes to the maintenance of normal bones, skin and hair. Meat, cheese, bread and shellfish are sources. Men aged 19-64 need 9·5mg/day; women 7mg.

IN SEASON Enjoy the best of British produce this May with these deliciously light spring recipes

Asparagus Highly prized British asparagus has a distinctively savoury flavour. A member of the allium family, it has a short season that runs from the middle of April to late June. It’s a good source of folate and vitamin K, as well as being a source of vitamin C. Store bundled stems in the fridge in damp kitchen towel to keep them fresh for longer.

Piccolo tomatoes Sweet, tangy and juicy, Piccolo cherry tomatoes are sold on the vine for maximum flavour and freshness. Although refrigerating tomatoes will preserve them, they will taste much better if stored at room temperature. Tomatoes are a good source of lycopene and vitamin C, which helps to maintain a strong immune system. Piccolos are naturally sweet and make a delicious snack. For an elegant spring lunch, toss with crumbled feta, basil, olive oil and black pepper, then roast until soft. Serve with crusty bread.

• • •

TOP TIP

You can use any tomatoes you like. If large, roughly chop before adding to the pan. Once cooked down, blitz before straining to remove the skins.

Bell peppers are one of the best sources of vitamin C: just one pepper has all the vitamin C you need in a day. Stir finely chopped, roasted peppers into softened butter with lemon zest, chopped mint and parsley; chill. Use to top grilled chicken or corn on the cob.

Jersey Royals Their sweet, buttery flavour and papery skins make these new potatoes a UK favourite. They're available in store from late April until mid June. They can only be called Jersey Royals if they're grown on Jersey. They’re a great source of complex carbohydrates, which are vital for growth and development, and are the body’s main source of energy. Try them roasted, then tossed with pesto, bacon, olives and Camembert; bake until the cheese begins to melt.

FREE TO ENJOY Don’t miss out on your favourites with these new, award-winning ‘Free From’ ready-prepared meals

I

f you’re following a ‘free from’ diet – cutting out gluten, wheat, milk or eggs – it’s good to know you can still enjoy classic dishes that are full of flavour. At Tesco we have worked hard over the last 10 years to bring you the foods you told us you missed the most, in delicious, free from alternatives. You also told us you wanted ready meals for when you’re too busy to cook. We’ve introduced a new range of 10 chilled, ready-prepared meals featuring flavours from around the world. All are free from gluten, wheat, milk and egg, are nutritionally balanced, and are every bit as good as the real thing. That’s why we are proud to have won the Free From Retailer of the Year 2017 award at the Free From Food Awards, for the third year running. The judges loved the Free From Beef Casserole and Dumplings, £3/430g, pictured above: slow-cooked beef in a red wine sauce with fluffy dumplings, which is so tasty it won gold in the ready meals category. They also singled out the Pulled Beef & Red Wine Ragu, right, as a winner in its individual category. The Tesco Free From range has everything from store-cupboard staples such as bread and pasta to treats such as carrot cake, so you need never miss out on the foods you love.

THREE OF THE BEST These delicious ready-prepared dishes are all gluten, wheat, milk and egg-free

Reach for the Pulled Beef & Red Wine Ragu, £3/400g, for meltingly soft, slow-cooked pulled beef brisket with Italian gluten-free spaghetti, topped with fresh parsley.

Try the Katsu Chicken Curry, £3/400g, with crumbed chicken breast pieces and a sweet curried coconut and red chilli sauce on a bed of jasmine rice.

For a tasty twist on the takeaway classic, choose the Chicken Tikka Masala, £3/400g, chicken breast pieces in a mild tikka sauce with rice and grains.

3 MACKEREL

4 SARDINES

5 TUNA

Brilliantly versatile, vitamin B12-rich salmon works well in a wide variety of dishes. It’s a popular choice in the UK and can be eaten fresh, smoked or cured, or from a tin.

A useful source of vitamin D, this tasty Scandinavian favourite is available throughout the year. Intensely savoury, it’s often cooked in an oaty coating to retain its oil.

Beautiful, silver-blue mackerel have a creamy, salty flavour. They’re rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which help to regulate our blood pressure and keep the heart healthy.

At their best in spring, sardines have a strong flavour and are usually grilled or fried. They are a great source of selenium, which is important for a healthy immune system.

A fish so large it’s sold as steaks, tuna is high in protein and has a meaty taste. When tinned, its high oil content drops and it no longer counts as an oily fish.

A source of omega-3 fatty acids, oily fish aren’t just delicious – they’re good for you, too

Whole fish should be gutted and scaled. Pat tuna steaks dry with kitchen paper; do not wash.

S T O RE

Oily fish have a short shelf-life, so should be eaten quickly. Store tuna steaks on a clingfilm-covered plate in the fridge. Other varieties should be refrigerated in an airtight container.

The firm flesh of oily fish makes them well suited to grilling or barbecuing, but they can also be fried or baked.

Love cooking healthy recipes for the people you care about? Derek Sarno is a development chef who creates exciting and delicious fruit- and vegetable-based meals, so he understands just how important good quality food and ingredients are

Derek Sarno is a plant-pushing chef. He and his brother Chad are founders of Wicked Healthy, where they promote ‘eating healthy 80 per cent of the time, wicked 20 per cent of the time’. But what does it actually mean to be a ‘plant-pusher’? ‘Nothing more than that I’m passionate about promoting plant-based recipes and eating lots of vegetables. I was inspired as a child by watching my mum and nana. As I got older I learnt from some talented chefs and friends I worked with, asking lots of questions and practising every day. I find real inspiration from observing people who work hard and take cooking as seriously as I do. The past decade or so I’ve been developing my own ideas and, along with my brother, we’ve been perfecting our plant-cooking craft by thinking outside of the box and away from what people might consider “normal”. It’s a space I’m comfortable in.’

What part did food play in your childhood?

‘I spent lots of time with my grandmother, stirring pasta, picking parsley and making soups. No matter what time of day it was, food was at the centre of everything; it was what we did as a family and it was all homemade.’

What’s the first thing you learnt to make? 20

‘It was a cake from a box I made with my Auntie Patty. I was 12 and it was a yellow cake, but I used food colour to make it blue, like the Cookie Monster on Sesame Street! I added cherries and chocolate and entered it in a bake show. I won third place, I think only because I was the youngest - that cake was crazy blue!’

How did your interest in following a plant-based diet develop?

‘As far back as I can remember, my mum has told me and my brothers to eat more veggies now I’m the one pushing plants! It took me a little while to get it in my head, but I’m finally doing stuff about it. I’ve trained most of my life to cook Wicked Healthy and to show how amazing it is to eat more veggies.’

What inspired you to work in the food industry?

‘I want to serve and be of benefit to people. At the same time, working in a kitchen allows my creativity to flow. I take my role very seriously; I am responsible for creating the foods that people put into their bodies so I feel I have a direct impact on people’s health and the environment.’

170°C. Reserve 6 chestnut mushrooms then thinly slice the remaining chestnuts and all of the shiitakes. Set aside. 2 Scoop out and discard the inside of the Portobellos before use as they can be bitter. Heat ½ tbsp oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the Portobellos and the 6 reserved chestnut mushrooms to the pan. Cover with baking paper and put a pan half filled with water on top to flatten. Cook for 5 minutes each side, until juicy. Once cooked, thickly slice the Portobellos and transfer all the cooked mushrooms to a bowl. Toss in 2 tbsp BBQ sauce. 3 In the same pan over a medium heat, add another ½ tbsp oil and the sliced shiitake and chestnut mushrooms. Leave for 1-2 minutes, then stir and cook for a further 2-3 minutes each side, until crispy. Add to the bowl with the other mushrooms; toss. Tip onto a baking sheet and cook in the oven for 8-10 minutes. Remove; set aside. 4 In the same pan, cook the remaining ½ tbsp oil, spices and rosemary for 30 seconds. Return all of the mushrooms to the pan with the oil, tossing to coat. Season with pepper, turn off the heat. 5 Microwave the rolls for 15 seconds to soften, if you like, then fill with the lettuce and mushrooms. Finish with the remaining BBQ sauce, red onion, chilli and coriander. Serve with extra sauce alongside. Each serving contains Energy

LTH A E H

MYTHS

MYTH: VEGETARIAN = GOOD It’s true that studies suggest vegetarians are less likely to suffer from heart disease and cancer but, as Sian says, ‘It’s possible to be vegetarian and still eat badly. Ensure your diet has a range of proteins, with a variety of beans, pulses and dark greens to boost iron.’

Finding the truth about what food you and your family should be eating can be tricky, so we’ve cut through the headlines

E

very day, there seems to be a new report on the foods that are good – or bad – for us, and it often contradicts last week’s news. So why can’t the experts agree? ‘I get asked this all the time, but there’s no simple answer,’ says dietician Sian Porter. ‘New findings can raise questions about past beliefs, and that’s what’s going on here. Science evolves so that seemingly clear-cut ideas can change over time.’ And many experts are starting to realise that one size does not fit all – influences such as genes can mean a food might affect one person positively but another negatively. ‘We think it’s black and white – “this is good, this is bad” – but almost every food can be both,’ says nutritionist Bridget Benelam from the British Nutrition Foundation. Amid all this confusion, there are some myths that we definitely shouldn’t believe. So read on and get your family eating well...

36

MYTH: AVOID EGGS

‘When it was discovered that cholesterol raised the risk of heart disease, we thought that eating foods high in cholesterol would increase the levels of it in our bodies, so it was suggested that people limit their intake of eggs,’ says Bridget. ‘Over the years, though, science has disproved this.’ In fact a study by the University of Surrey found that people who eat two eggs a day as part of a 12-week calorie-controlled diet actually saw their cholesterol levels fall. If you like eggs, eat them.

MYTH: FAT MAKES YOU FAT Ounce for ounce, fat has more calories than any other nutrient, so it has long been shunned by dieters. But we just need to know which fats to eat. ‘Fat doesn’t need to be completely excluded from any diet, but it is important to control the portion sizes of fats and high-fat foods if trying to lose weight as they are so caloriedense,’ says Bridget. Try to eat sources of unsaturated fat, which don’t raise cholesterol – such as oily fish, avocados and nuts – and keep portions small.


HEALTHY EATING

MYTH: FRESH JUICE BEATS FRUIT Juices and smoothies are seen as a good way to get a lot of nutrients in one go and kids love them. ‘But when you juice a fruit, you remove the fibre – and most of us only get about half the fibre we need each day as it is,’ says Bridget. ‘Juices also have a lot of free sugars, which are high in calories.’ But you don’t need to ban juice – just stick to the recommended daily intake of one 150ml glass. Get the rest of your nutrients from whole fruit and veg.

MYTH: RAW IS BEST

‘The theory of raw eating is that cooking destroys enzymes and nutrients in food – but in fact, some foods actually release more nutrients when they are cooked,’ says Sian. For instance, roasting tomatoes for 30 minutes increases the amount of the antioxidant lycopene that is released. ‘Eat a good mix of cooked and raw foods,’ says Sian.

WORDS HELEN FOSTER PHOTOGRAPHY TOM REGESTER FOOD STYLING JOY SKIPPER PROP STYLING LYDIA BRUN

MYTH: EAT ORGANIC AND YOU’LL LOSE WEIGHT MYTH: GLUTEN IS BAD FOR YOU

‘This is a common belief among health bloggers but, for most people, there’s no evidence gluten does harm,’ says Sian. So why do so many people say they feel better when they stop eating it? It might be down to other changes in their diet: they often eat more veg and adopt a more varied diet. ‘I tell clients to try switching up their carbs before they ban gluten,’ says Sian. ‘Try oats for breakfast, have a sandwich for lunch then quinoa or rice for dinner.’

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking anything marked ‘organic’ has fewer calories than non-organic food. The science on this is simple: ‘If you consume more calories than your body needs in a day, you will gain weight,’ says Sian.

SMALL CHANGES

BIG DIFFERENCE Want to have more time and money, and feel and eat better? Just switch your habits in the smallest of ways

READ MOOD-BOOSTING BOOKS If you like to read, try something from the Reading Well Mood-Boosting Books list (reading-well.org.uk) – titles chosen by readers and reading groups for being uplifting, such as Danny Baker’s autobiography, Going to Sea in a Sieve, and The House at Pooh Corner by AA Milne. The scheme, which is supported by the Department of Health, aims to combat depression, anxiety and stress. All the books on the list have been recommended and endorsed by health professionals, and have been tried and tested by people with experience of living with stress and anxiety.

CAFFEINE UP BEFORE YOUR CRUNCHES Research suggests a large cup of coffee (about 230-330ml with 179 milligrams of caffeine) can help you work out at a higher intensity without feeling like you’re trying much harder. Studies have found that cyclists could last 15 minutes longer after drinking caffeine one hour before working out. So put the kettle on, grab a mug of your favourite blend and let it fuel you to physical fitness!

Make school mornings less manic Play the kids’ favourite CD or playlist and get them to complete a different task during each song. For instance: get dressed by the end of the first track, shoes on by track two, teeth brushed by track three, bed made by the end of track four… It means less panic, less moaning, and everyone can have fun singing along. 38


We’re all guilty of quickly rinsing our hands under the tap without using soap – in fact, a third of us skip soap every time – but that could actually be worse than not washing them at all. ‘Wet and contaminated hands transfer bacteria more effectively to surfaces

than dry hands,’ explains Anthony Hilton, professor of applied microbiology at Aston University, Birmingham. And when you consider the average person carries more than 10 million bacteria on their hands, it’s enough to – quite literally – turn your stomach.

WELLBEING

Psychologists at San Francisco State University have found that experiences make us happier than objects, because the excitement of buying something fades faster than great memories. So next time you dip into your savings, use them for a datenight dinner, not a designer bag, which will probably go out of fashion before long anyway.

your salad leaves

There are fewer than 25 calories in a cereal bowl-sized portion of iceberg lettuce, but while it’s one of your five a day, it’s not exactly the biggest hitter on the salad nutrition scale. Try spinach – it’s also low in calories and it’s a better source of magnesium and vitamin A.

TAKE THE BOTHER OUT OF BREAKFAST

Keep sliced bread in the freezer to avoid ‘aghhh, no toast!’ moments. Or hard-boil six eggs and dry-fry a pack of lean bacon, chop and put in lidded containers. Throughout the week you can grab a handful of each, throw them into a wholemeal tortilla and, with a squirt of ketchup, you have a delicious breakfast wrap.

SWAP YOUR TABLET FOR A TABLE

We all know that eating in front of the computer or TV screen is bad for us, but do you know why? It can increase your food intake by a whopping 10 per cent because you’re not concentrating on what you’re doing or on whether you actually want those last few mouthfuls.

Shop smart Avoid trying to remember what you need to buy all in one go – and then going back to the shop for things you’ve forgotten – by keeping a pad and pen in the grocery cupboard. And keep notes stuck to the fridge, freezer and cleaning cupboard as well. When you see that something’s low or you use the last of it, write it down – and make sure the whole family does the same. When you go shopping, just tear off the lists and take them with you.

WELLBEING

UP PROTEIN and LOWER FAT

STOP SAYING ‘I’ll try’

(but keep the taste)

WORDS ALISON PALMER

People only use those words if they don’t think they can or they haven’t really got time. ‘Saying “I’ll try” can be misinterpreted as “I will” and leads to others being disappointed and you feeling stressed,’ says business coach Kate Tojeiro. Instead, say ‘I’m sorry, I can’t’ and explain why, or say ‘I will’, but set out your terms – you can do it next week, or you’ll share the job. You’ll feel happier and more relaxed and the other person will be clear what’s happening.

BE AWARE OF YOUR SPENDING

GIVE AWAY, don’t throw away

The UK throws away £13bn worth of food each year – an average of £470 per household. And no matter how frugal you are, you can always be better. Download OLIO, the free food-sharing app that connects neighbours with each other to advertise surplus food that can then be shared, not binned. You’ll try new flavours, save money, help others and be less wasteful.

Love dolloping a tablespoon of soured cream (193 calories per 100ml) on your jacket potato or chilli con carne, but would like a lighter option? Swap it for the same amount of Greek yogurt (133 calories per 100ml), which is higher in protein and lower in fat.

Instead of handing over your debit card, withdraw a set amount of cash for the week. It really focuses your mind on how and why you spend money and where you’re wasting it. Psychologists at New York University have found that people spend less when they have to hand over cash rather than use a credit or debit card, which most view as ‘play money’.

HAPPY

FAMIL IES

Sunshine triggers the release of serotonin, the brain’s ‘happy’ chemical, so now the weather’s on the up and blue skies are here again, try eating more of your family meals outdoors. Not only will it boost your mood, but studies have shown we linger at the dining table longer when we’re eating alfresco, and enjoy livelier conversations because there are fewer distractions.

Low in salt

1 x 1·8kg large chicken 1 tbsp olive oil 3 tsp instant coffee granules 1 tbsp brown sugar 1 tsp allspice 2 tsp smoked paprika ½ tsp cayenne pepper

1 Remove the chicken backbone with sturdy scissors or poultry shears. Turn it breast side up then flatten it with

your hands*. Thread a metal skewer diagonally through a thigh to the opposite wing. Repeat with another skewer from the opposite thigh. 2 Mix the oil, coffee, sugar, allspice, paprika and cayenne in a bowl. Season, then rub all over the chicken. Marinate for 30 minutes in a shallow roasting dish at room temperature. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. 3 Cook the chicken in the oven for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, if using a gas barbecue, preheat to medium-high or, if using charcoal, light it and wait until the coals are glowing and the flames have completely died down.

4 Put the chicken on the barbecue, breast side down, for 5-10 minutes until the skin is golden and charred. Turn over and cook for 5-10 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through with no pink meat showing and the juices run clear when a skewer is inserted into the thickest part of the leg. Leave to rest for 10 minutes, then remove the skewers and slice to serve. Each serving contains Energy

5-10 minutes to heat up and stay hot as long as you want.

WHY CHOOSE CHARCOAL? Charcoal barbecues are •simple to use, effective and often the most cost-effective buys. Lighter to move and smaller than gas barbecues, charcoal barbecues take up less space so can be stored easily. ‘Wheels make them easy to move about,’ adds Darren. Many foodies are big fans of the smoky flavour charcoal gives food. Steaks, chicken and aubergines cook particularly well on them.

Keep it sweet!

If you’re looking for a tasty way to lower the calories then Silver Spoon Half Spoon is the answer. With the same sweet taste and crunchy texture as the sugar you’re used to, it contains just half the calories. Simply replace a spoonful of sugar with half a spoonful of Half Spoon for the same sweetness. Made with Silver Spoon sugar and a touch of sweetener, Half Spoon is just the thing in your tea or coffee, sprinkled over breakfast cereals and fruit, or in your bakes. It works perfectly in this recipe for mouthwatering Carrot Cake Muffins with a Yogurt Topping. Preheat the oven to gas 3, 170°C, fan 150°C and line a 12-hole muffin tray with paper muffin cases. Put 225g plain flour, 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, 11/2 tsp baking powder, 110g Silver Spoon Half Spoon, 1 tsp cinnamon and 75g raisins in a bowl and mix well. Put 175ml sunflower oil, 2 eggs, 180g grated carrot (approx 2) and 150g drained, crushed pineapple slices in a separate bowl and mix well. Add the

SPICY PULLED PORK Serves 6, with leftovers GF Takes 5 hrs 25 mins, plus marinating and resting Cost per serve £1·49

1½ tbsp cumin seeds 1½ tbsp coriander seeds 1½-2 tbsp chipotle chilli and smoked paprika paste 5 garlic cloves, peeled 5cm piece ginger, peeled and roughly chopped 4 tbsp cider vinegar approx 2kg pork shoulder joint 3 tbsp maple syrup 2 onions, quartered 1 iceberg lettuce, leaves separated to make cups 450g brown rice, cooked to pack instructions To serve (optional)

mixed salad Greek yogurt crushed chilli and chopped mint leaves, to garnish 1 In a frying pan over a mediumhigh heat, dry fry the cumin and coriander seeds, stirring often, until fragrant. In a food processor, whizz the toasted spices, chipotle paste, garlic, ginger and vinegar until smooth. 2 Pat the pork dry and put in a large, lidded casserole dish. Rub the paste mix all over the pork, working into the skin, then leave to marinate for 1 hour (or up to a day) in the fridge. 3 Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Drizzle the syrup over the pork, season, then add 600ml water and the onions. Scrunch up a piece of baking paper, flatten and lay over the pork. Put the lid on and roast for 45 minutes. 4 Remove from the oven, turn the pork and reduce the oven to gas

3, 170°C, fan 150°C. Roast for a further 4½ hours, turning the meat every hour. Once the pork is soft enough to pull apart easily using 2 forks, transfer the pork from the dish to a baking tray. 5 Put the casserole dish on the hob and bring the juices to the boil over a high heat, then reduce the heat and simmer until slightly reduced. 6 Meanwhile, cut away the string and discard the skin and fat from the pork, then shred with 2 forks. Add to the juices in the dish, stirring well. Rest the pork, covered, for 15-20 minutes. Spoon a generous heaping of the pulled pork into the lettuce cups and serve the rice alongside.

Combine the flours, yeast and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add the honey and 430ml tepid water, and mix with a wooden spoon until no dry flour remains. Cover loosely and leave to one side for 10 minutes.

Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 10-15 minutes, until elastic. If you are using an electric mixer, kneading time can be halved. Put the dough in a bowl, cover and leave to rise for 60-90 minutes, or until doubled in size.

Transfer the dough to your lined tin. Cover loosely with clingfilm or a tea towel; leave to rise for 40-60 minutes, until bigger but not quite doubled in size. After 30 minutes, preheat the oven to gas 9, 240°C, fan 220°C and put a baking tray on the bottom shelf.

When the dough has risen, brush with water and sprinkle over the seeds. Put in the centre of the oven and pour a cup of cold water into the hot baking tray below. Turn the oven down to gas 7, 220°C, fan 200°C, and bake for 35 minutes.

3 BETTER BREAD

Compared to a standard sliced white loaf, this bread has more fibre. The seeds are a great source of protein, too.

Grease a 900g loaf tin with oil and line with nonstick baking paper. On a lightly floured surface, knock the air out of the dough with your fist. Flatten into a rectangle to roughly fit your tin. Cut lengthways into 3, leaving the top end intact, then plait together.

Remove the loaf from its tin and return to the oven for a further 10-15 minutes, until a deep golden brown colour. Leave to cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

Expert tips If you find your dough hasn’t risen enough in the time allotted, it could be that your kitchen is too cool. Leave it to rise in a warm spot, allowing time for it to reach the level indicated. To knead the dough, use the heel of your hand to stretch it away from you. Roll it back in on itself, pick it

up and turn it 90 degrees, then stretch it away from you again. Repeat until the dough reaches the desired consistency. Add a dusting of flour onto the work surface and your hands as you begin kneading to help prevent the dough from sticking. The dough may be sticky at first but this will change as you knead it; don’t be tempted to add extra flour. Make sure to preheat the oven and

baking tray fully in step 4. This helps create steam when water is added into the tray as the loaf goes into the oven, resulting in a better crust. The loaf is cooked if the base sounds hollow when tapped with a finger. If not, put it back in the oven for 5-10 minutes and check again. Leave the loaf to cool completely before slicing, otherwise the steam will escape, resulting in a denser texture and a drier bread.

Researchers at Yale University found that people who bury their heads in books live almost two years longer than those who don’t read!

Some of us sit for 10 hours a day – an inactivity linked to a whole host of health problems, including heart disease, obesity and type 2 diabetes. Break up periods of sitting with short bursts of activity every 30 minutes. Set an alarm on your phone to remind you to get up and walk every half hour. Get off the sofa during ad breaks, walk around every time you take a phone call or invest in a fitness gadget that monitors your movements and prompts you to move, too.

he good news? Thanks to better healthcare and living conditions, people are living healthier and longer lives than ever before. And the even better news? Scientists are constantly searching for – and discovering – other factors that can influence our longevity, health and happiness. These include

A new study at Brigham Young University in Utah supports the theory that eating only until you feel about 80 per cent full might add years to some people’s lives. Try slowing down your eating, and remember it takes up to 20 minutes for your brain to register when you're full so, before you swoop in for seconds, wait a while. Chances are you won’t feel quite so hungry if you take a breather.

everything from our attitude and outlook to how we socialise. The great thing about this new knowledge is that it can help us actively do more to put some extra, more enjoyable years on the clock. Take some tips from the latest findings below and start your journey to a more fulfilled life...

We know that exercising and eating well help lead to a better life. But is there anything else that might contribute to making our lives that bit better and, perhaps, even longer?

IMPROVE YOUR WELLBEING

SURPRISING WAYS TO


WORDS KIM JONES ILLUSTRATION ANDREW LYONS

Enjoy life and you’ll likely have more of it! A study by University College London found that people who had a positive outlook on life during middle age and beyond lived longer than those who found little pleasure in what they did. So seek activities – and company – you enjoy.

Research from over 100 different studies found that loneliness can be just as deadly as smoking and boozing. Strong friendships and a buzzing social life can improve your chances of living a longer life by 50 per cent, according to research by Cambridge University.

No time for the gym? Don’t worry. Researchers at McMaster University in Canada found that exercising on the stairs in short bursts three times a week (try 20-second all-out sprints up stairs mixed with two minutes’ recovery) improves cardiorespiratory fitness.

Strong, healthy muscles help keep you mobile and can even lead to a longer life, say Penn State College of Medicine researchers. They found over-65s who lifted weights twice a week were 46 per cent less likely to suffer premature death. So use dumbbells, do leg squats, push-ups and sit-ups, or even carry heavy shopping home.

New research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found people who played racket sports were found to have a 47 per cent reduced chance of death compared with people who didn’t exercise. Any sport will do you good – so find your fit!

81

People who regularly eat hot red chilli peppers have a 13 per cent lower risk of death than those who don’t! That’s the finding of a report by US journal PLOS ONE, which studied 16,000 people over 18 years.

That flat white could give you more than a morning happiness lift – it could help add a few more years to the clock, too. A Stanford University study found a link between caffeine intake and low levels of inflammation in the body. So drink up in the knowledge it could be doing you good!

People who eat a small handful of nuts daily cut their risk of a premature death by 22 per cent, says an Imperial College London and Norwegian University of Science and Technology joint study. It’s thought nuts help reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Choose the unsalted varieties and stick to a small serving daily to ward off weight gain.

The last to cross the finishing line is the winner! Kids’ bowls Make a circle with chalk on paving or a rope on grass. Give each child different coloured balls. They take turns throwing them into the circle and try to knock each other’s balls out of the circle. It can get very tense. Shadow tag Decide who is going to be ‘it’. That child chases the others, trying to touch their shadow with their hand or foot. The person whose shadow is tagged is now ‘it’. Keep playing until everyone is worn out!

GOODNESS Next time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re shopping in store with your kids, look out for our free fruit stand and give them a healthy treat...

W

e all know how important it is for us to eat at least five portions of fruit and veg a day, but the average child in the UK only eats three. Which is where Free Fruit for Kids comes in: this healthy initiative offers free fruit for your children to munch on as you shop (in over 800 stores). Not only will picking out their own healthy snack get children more excited about eating fruit, a habit that will (hopefully!) stay with them as they grow up, it will also keep the little ones occupied while parents get on with the shopping in peace!


HEALTH

THE FIT FILES

We round up the latest exercise trends and tips

STEP TO IT

WORDS AVIVA ATTIAS PHOTOGRAPHY ALAMY ILLUSTRATION RICHARD WILSMORE *England Athletics campaign, September 2016 **According to a Cash Converters survey

rt ExpeQ&A I ONLY HAVE A HALF-HOUR LUNCH BREAK. WHAT EXERCISE COULD I DO? Combine holding a plank position, sets of deep lunges, tricep dips or press-ups, and step-ups on a log or bench. Alternate with power walks or sprints. Warm up with a jog; finish with a walk and stretch. Kathryn Freeland, MD, Absolute Fitness

weekend WARRIOR? ARE YOU A

Running outside is fantastic exercise, but it’s not always straightforward: more than 60 per cent of women polled for This Girl Can Run* said they felt anxious running alone. However, running with others, whether through the streets or cross-country, is a great way to feel more confident. For UK running groups, visit irun. wales; runtogether.co.uk; jogscotland.org.uk; or nirunning.co.uk.

KEEP

it up

By June, 44 per cent of those who set New Year fitness resolutions have given them up**. Try these ideas to stay motivated: take advantage of free weekend tennis sessions (visit clubspark.lta.org.uk); be inspired to stick to your goals by taking part in a charity fitness challenge – check the website of your favourite cause to find local events; use a fitness app such as Endomondo and share your progress with friends and family so they can spur you on.

WEIGHT LIFTING

ISN’T IT JUST FOR MEN?

Men have been lifting weights as a form of exercise for ages, but it’s becoming increasingly popular with women, too. Hashtags such as #girlswholift are all over social media.

WHY DO IT?

‘You’ll increase lean muscle mass, which ups your metabolism and offers more fat loss in the long term,’ says Georgia Gray at Fitness First.

WHERE CAN I TRY IT? Ask your gym for tips on technique, look for a local lifting group, or try classes like Shred at selected Fitness First clubs (fitnessfirst.co.uk) or Grid Strong at selected Virgin Active clubs (virginactive.co.uk).

Good news for those who only work out on a Saturday or Sunday: a study of UK adults has found that people who only slip on the Lycra once a week benefit nearly as much as those who spread their exercise through the week.

FRESHLY From citrus-bright pops of colour to tangy aromas that will wake up your senses, we pick out the best zesty beauty buys Think you know citrus? Think again! We all know a daily dose of orange or lemon is good for our health. But extensive studies also show even the smell of citrus can make us happier and less stressed by stimulating the release of the ‘happy hormone’ oxytocin and reducing the stress hormone cortisol. It’s also been shown that vitamin C, abundant in all citrus fruits, is good for skin, increasing radiance, improving elasticity and evening out patchy pigmentation. And if that’s not enough reason to up your intake of juicy fruits, this season’s trend for tangy tones on lips, eyes, cheeks and nails will give you an instant lift into summer. Here’s to the bright stuff!

BEAUTY

ACID T EST

Let’s be honest: lemon isn’t a shade most of us reach for when it comes to nails. But it’s easier to wear than you might think. Yellow adds a pop of bright, summery colour to a plainer outfit, but varnishes can come out thin and watery. Which is why we love Maybelline Color Show 60 Seconds, £3; a transparent gelbased formula that gives a bold, crisp colour.

Lip tease

Give your pout a seasonal shakeup. ‘A mandarin mouth is a sure-fire way to liven up your look,’ says makeup artist Frances Prescott. ‘Matte orange lips – as seen on the catwalk at Mary Katrantzou – are beautiful against dark or tanned skin.’ Try L’Orèal Infallible Blush Paint in 02 Tangerine, £7.

Here’s a zing… Plenty of scientific studies confirm the moodboosting benefits of citrus-based aromas, from making us feel happier and less stressed to giving us more energy. Latest research now also shows that citrus scents have a stimulating effect on libido while increasing feelings of intimacy, too! Get zingy with it by using Original Source Shower Gel in Lime, £1·80.

JUICY FRUI TS

Tangy tangerine fingertips, as spotted on the catwalk at New York designer Tibi, are a quick way to overhaul your look. Jin Soon Choi, manicurist to celebrities such as Amy Adams and Beyoncé, painted nails a mouth-watering orange to complement the models’ skin tones. Neon brights, such as Collection 7 Day Wear Nail Polish in Orange Zest, £2, are perfect for dark, olive and tanned skin; team paler hands with softer sorbet shades.

Lime shine Citrus fruits make hair shinier by removing product build-up. ‘The acidity helps to flatten cuticles, making hair more light-reflective and less prone to frizz,’ says hairstylist and colourist Natalie Shirlaw, whose clients include Tom Hardy and Emeli Sandé. Get your shine on with lime-packed Herbal Essences Dazzling Shine Shampoo, £3.

BEAUTY

‘Lemon juice is a brilliant foot-smoother,’ says make-up artist Sally Kvalheim. ‘Soak feet in warm water with the juice of half a lemon. Pat dry, then buff away rough skin.’ For top-to-toe smoothing, try Calcot Manor Papaya & Lemon Scrub, £4 or Soaper Duper Zesty Lemon Body Scrub, £7·50. Both are packed with natural skin-exfoliating AHAs and perfect on elbows, knees, hands and feet.

Orange crush

THE POWER OF C

From reducing stress and fending off colds to combating agepromoting free-radicals, vitamin C has a solid reputation for keeping us healthy and younglooking. A staple in anti-ageing and radiance-boosting skin perfectors, it’s scientifically proven to fight free-radicals, even out patchiness and brighten skin. Now it has moved from skincare into make-up, and is especially beneficial in foundation, tinted moisturiser and BB cream. Get your daily dose of vitamin C with Olay Total Effects BB Cream, £15, which also contains B vitamins and UVA and UVB filters. 92

Keep it wearable by pairing bright lips with barely-there make-up on eyes and cheeks. ‘A coat of mascara and a sweep of bronzer on cheeks and temples is all you need,’ says make-up artist Frances Prescott. Darker and tanned skins can be bolder: add a pop of colour with Maybelline Loaded in Orange Danger, £7.

LIGHT EN UP

A trusted remedy for highlights that have lost their ‘oomph’, a lemon juice rinse also brightens blonde hair. ‘Citric acid is a weak oxidising agent that’s absorbed into the hair cortex,’ says chemist and haircare expert Joe Ricotta PhD. Add sunlight or heat from a dryer and the acid is activated, reducing the natural pigment in your hair to create a lightening effect. For a blonde boost, use John Frieda Sheer Blonde Go Blonder Shampoo, £6 teamed with the In-Shower Treatment, £10.

TRIED AND TESTED

PHOTOGRAPHY LEO ACKER PROP STYLING GILL RIDDELL

Faking it GARNIER AMBRE SOLAIRE NO STREAKS BRONZER, £11 Nicole ‘This felt cold going on, but was very lightweight and left my skin silky smooth. The smell was just like perfume – gorgeous! The colour took 4-6 hours to develop and left my skin feeling sunkissed, glowing and natural.’ Veronica ‘Wet and runny as it went on, this didn’t absorb well. The shade was good, though, and after 20 minutes my skin looked naturally tanned and glowing.’ Sarah ‘It felt quite watery as I sprayed it on and after 2 hours it was very patchy.’

ST TROPEZ SELF TAN BRONZING MOUSSE, £21 Nicole ‘I found this absorbed into my skin straight away and dried without smears. A little goes a long way.’ Veronica ‘Ten minutes after applying, it was dry and I loved the final caramel colour. I will definitely use this one again.’ Sarah ‘The smell was lovely and, 2 hours after applying, the colour was spot on.’

Our reader panel tests self-tan lotions

ST. MORIZ SELF TANNING MOUSSE, £3·50 Nicole ‘This covered my whole body really fast. After 4-5 hours I was boasting a gorgeous golden glow.’ Veronica ‘It glides onto the skin, blends easily and dries fast too. It took about 6 hours for the colour to develop.’ Sarah ‘I really loved this – it’s so easy to use, with a great colour and coverage and no patches or streaks.’

SALLY HANSEN AIRBRUSH LEGS, £10 Nicole ‘My favourite! As soon as it hit my skin this spray was dry and I could see the colour. Quick, easy and looks great!’ Veronica ‘This one gave me a nice instant tan and didn’t feel greasy or damp. The colour was gorgeous and it didn’t come off on my clothes or bedding either.’ Sarah ‘I thought this one felt really nice as I sprayed it onto my skin and I could see the colour straight away.’
