Alternative Gear


Serves = 5

  • 2 tsp EVOO

  • 1 tsp grated ginger

  • 1 brown onion

  • 2 tbsp green curry paste

  • 600g chicken breast, diced

  • 1 bunch coriander

  • 200mL light coconut milk

  • ⅔ cup reduced salt stock

  • 800g frozen vegetables

  • 450g packet pre cooked brown rice

  • (Optional) 2 chillis

It’s this easy

  1. Heat a large pot over medium-hot heat

  2. Add oil, then the chicken and cook until the chicken begins to brown, tossing regularly

  3. While the chicken is cooking, peel and roughly chop the onion

  4. Add the onion, ginger, curry paste, and chilli if using to a food processor and chop into a fine paste

  5. Reduce the pan heat to medium and add the onion, ginger, curry paste and chilli mix, stirring to combine and until it becomes fragrant

  6. To the same blender (don’t worry about washing it in between), add the coconut milk, stock and coriander and blend until smooth

  7. Add the coriander/coconut mixture to the pan with the chicken and onion/curry paste mixture

  8. Add in the fresh or frozen vegetables and simmer the curry over a low to medium heat for 10-15 minutes until the chicken and vegetables are cooked through

  9. Serve with rice


  • You can use fresh or frozen vegetables, broccoli, capsicum, baby corn, carrot and green beans would work well
  • You can use chicken thigh, trimmed of fat, or tofu instead of the chicken breast

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.
