  • Line a baking tray with baking paper, and lay mushrooms out evenly on one side
  • Spoon 2 tbsp of ricotta into each mushroom

  • Slice the capsicum in half, take out the seeds and lay the two pieces next to the mushrooms on the same tray. Drizzle capsicum with a little more oil
  • Bake mushrooms and capsicum in preheated oven for 20-30 mins, until cheese is slightly bubbling. (This step could be done using a toaster oven, a microwave or a fry pan (with lid)).
  • Meanwhile, cut the buns in half and warm these on the oven rack for the last 3 mins of cooking your mushrooms. Slice cucumber and onion into thin slices
  • Assemble burgers with the mushrooms, sliced up capsicum, cucumber, lettuce and onion

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.
