Alternative Gear


Serves = 4

2 medium sweet potatoes, washed

1 medium brown onion, diced

1 capsicum, diced

1 can of black beans, no added salt

½ cup of frozen corn kernels

½ packet reduced salt taco seasoning

½ cup of reduced fat cheese, grated

2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil + Olive oil spray

It’s this easy

  • Preheat oven to 220°C, and line baking tray with baking paper
  • Pierce sweet potato with a fork all over. Spray sweet potato with olive oil. Place in the oven to cook for one hour
  • While the sweet potato is cooking, heat a medium fry pan over a moderate heat. Add olive oil and sauté onion and capsicum for 5 minutes
  • Add beans, corn, and taco seasoning to fry pan. Add 2 Tbsp of water and stir until mixed through
  • Once the sweet potato is cooked, cut in half lengthways and scoop out half of the sweet potato and add it to the bean and vegetable mix, stir until just combined
  • Cut each sweet potato half, in half again (you should now have 4 pieces of sweet potato). Scoop the vegetable mix onto each of the sweet potatoes evenly
  • Sprinkle with cheese
  • (Optional) place the sweet potatoes under the grill, until the cheese is melted (roughly 5 minutes)
  • Serve. (Optional) - add your preferred toppings e.g. Greek yogurt, avocado, jalapenos, coriander etc.


  • You can cook the sweet potato in the microwave instead. Pierce the sweet potato with a fork and place in a microwave proof bowl. Microwave for approx. 15-20 mins, until the sweet potato is cooked through.

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.
