  • Olive oil spray

  • 1 heaped tsp crushed garlic

  • 1 can brown lentils

  • 1 zucchini (or other vegetable), grated

  • 2 brown onions, finely chopped

  • 500g lean mince (beef, lamb, chicken, turkey)

  • 2 tsp paprika (or spice of your choice)

  • 1-2 tbsp no added salt tomato paste

  • 100g reduced fat feta, crumbled

  • 2 tbsp pine nuts or almonds, toasted

  • ¼ cup parsley, finely chopped or other fresh herbs

  • 1 whole packet of filo pastry (roughly 15-18 sheets)

It’s this easy

  • Preheat the oven to 200°c and line a tray with baking paper.

  • Spray a frying pan with olive oil in a medium fry pan, add the onion and garlic, and cook for 5 mins or until soft.

  • Add the mince and cook through. Then add the drained lentils, paprika and zucchini and cook for 2 more minutes. Set aside to cool.

  • Once cooled, add the feta, nuts, tomato paste and parsley, then mix together.

  • Fold 1 sheet of filo pastry in half and spray with oil, then place 3 tbsp of mixture on top and roll up, sealing it on the edge. Repeat this with the rest of the mixture and pastry.

  • Place the rolls onto a baking tray and cook for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with your favourite sauce!

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

By completing the Healthy Eating Quiz you’ll receive instant personalised feedback and a report on your diet quality to highlight any areas where you can improve your overall eating habits.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

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.
