Alternative Gear


Serves = 6

  • 500g zucchini (2-3 zucchini)
  • 300g carrot (1-2 carrot)
  • 1 bunch of spring onions
  • 1 capsicum (any colour)
  • 1 cup (90g) grated reduced fat tasty cheese
  • 1 cup (150g) wholemeal self-raising flour
  • 5 eggs
  • ¼ cup (60mL) reduced fat milk
  • 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Pepper
  • Optional: 1 bunch chopped fresh herbs (parsley/thyme/rosemary) or 1 tsp dried herbs (thyme, rosemary)

It’s this easy

  • Pre-heat oven to 180°C/160°C fan-forced
  • Spray a 25cm square baking tray with olive oil
  • Grate zucchini into a large bowl. Scrunch the grated zucchini to remove some of the water. Grate carrot and cheese, and add to the grated zucchini
  • Slice spring onions, including both white and green portions, removing only the roots at the base, and roughly dice capsicum and add to the bowl with the grated vegetables and cheese, along with fresh or dried herbs (optional)
  • Use a spoon to mix the vegetables and cheese together.
  • In a separate, large mixing bowl, add wholemeal self-raising flour, eggs, milk, olive oil and pepper and mix until well combined, to form a batter
  • Add the vegetable and cheese mixture to the batter, and mix until well combined
  • Pour mixture into greased baking tray and smooth the top
  • Place the tray in the preheated oven, and bake for approximately 1 hour or until lightly golden and the egg mixture is cooked through. Remove from the oven and allow the slice to cool completely in the pan
  • Using a knife, run it around the edges of the baking tray, place a chopping board or large plate (big enough to cover the top of the tray) and carefully turn the slice over to remove it from the tray
  • Slice into 6 wedges
  • Serve on its own or with a salad


  • You can use any dried or fresh herbs you like
  • Other vegetables that will work well in this recipe include mushrooms, spinach, pumpkin, tomatoes, broccoli and cauliflower. Chop them up into small pieces, and use them to replace either the zucchini or the carrot
  • Try cooking the slice in a muffin tray and reduce the cooking time to around 30-40 minutes or until the top of the slice is golden and the egg mixture is cooked through. This will make approx. 12 pieces

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.
