Real advice from real nutrition experts
No Money No Time® is about healthy eating for the real world – yours.
No expensive, complicated recipes. No crazy, fad diets. No need for designer label kitchen knives.
What is healthy eating?
Eating healthy is not about going from one fad diet to another, it’s about choosing a diet plan you can stick to long term, while enjoying a wide variety of healthy foods from the 5 major food groups:
- Vegetables and legumes/beans.
- Lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans.
- Grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties.
- Milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.
No Money No Time® is here to help you cut through all the noise and debunk diet myths, while bringing you the recipes, tools, advice and credible nutrition information that makes healthy eating easy.
The advice, recipes and tools will be tailored specifically to the areas of your eating habits where you need the most help. How, you ask?
Your starting point is the Healthy Eating Quiz, which is developed by Professor Collins and the nutrition and dietetics research team at the University of Newcastle and featured on ABC, Triple J, The independent, Vitamania and more.
The Healthy Eating Quiz (HEQ) is endorsed by the Dietitians Association of Australia and first launched in 2012. Since then over 400,000 people from all over the world have completed it. It takes less than 10 minutes to do the HEQ. You then get instant personalised feedback and a report on your diet quality, with recipe suggestions and ideas to boost your HEQ score based on the information you give us.
But wait there’s more… As well as being able to save your HEQ report, your results will be stored in your personalised dashboard and we will recommended personalised goals to help you to improve specific areas of your diet. You can come back and visit us anytime to see how your HEQ score changes over time. Improvement in your HEQ score can help you to live healthier lives and reduce the risk of diet related disease later in life.
Why is healthy eating important?
Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
