26 ENTERTAINMENT THURSDAY OCTOBER 5 2017 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 ence in home brewing and processes and how things can be done, he said. This will be his first workshop outside of Brisbane. I want to talk about using simple ingredients. With Darwin and the humidity, there are limitations (on) brewing beer, he said. With the humidity and the general seasons in Darwin Ive found that a lot of the brain can go mouldy quite quickly you have to refrigerate it or keep it in cool places. Ill be presenting a workshop that deals with those things. Mr Guy said the workshops would suit anyone just starting out and didnt have all the Plate up rainbow of vegies THE COOKS CORNER Natasha Murray HEaRT FOuNdaTiON NT Mexicorn salsa toast topper TRY this great breakfast option to kickstart your vegie intake for the day three different colours and four different vegies! Prep: 5 mins Cook: 0 mins Serves: 1 Try a different topper on a piece of toast each day of the working week! Ingredients 1 slice wholegrain bread, toasted 2 tbsp reduced-salt corn kernels 1/3 Lebanese cucumber, chopped 1 tbsp fresh coriander, roughly chopped 2 slices red onion, finely diced 1 tbsp no-added-salt red kidney beans Chilli flakes, optional Method 1. In a bowl, mix all the top per ingredients. 2. Spread over toast and serve. WE have been talking about healthy eating patterns as the way to help keep your heart healthy. The first principle of healthy eating patterns is to eat plenty of fruit, vegetables and wholegrain cereals, so this week we are talking about vegies! A recent report by the CSIRO found two thirds of Australian adults are not eating enough vegetables five serves a day of a variety of vegies is the goal. Research shows that people who eat more fruit and vegetables have a lower risk of heart disease as well as Type 2 diabetes and some cancers. They are also a great source of fibre, vitamin C, potassium and other nutrients which cut down the risk of high blood pressure and cholesterol, which is better for your heart. A serve of vegetables is 75g, which is half a cup of cooked vegies, half a medium potato, or 1 cup of salad or raw vegetables. Just like fruit, keeping the skin on where you can increases how much fibre youre eating, which helps keep you fuller for longer, keeps you regular and makes your gut flora (microbiome) healthy. Frozen vegies are just as nutritious as fresh actually, sometimes they are better! Frozen veg are snap frozen so the goodness is locked in and they are available throughout the year, so you dont need to wait for them to be in season. Tinned vegetables are a good option too, but make sure you choose the no added salt varieties. Here are some tips to get the extra veg in your day: Include three differ ent types of vegies with your main meal Fill half your plate with colourful vegies Aim to include ve gies in all meals and snacks Cut up vegies like carrot, celery, cucumber and capsicum and keep them in the fridge for snacks, or ready to add to dinner. Add salad to your sandwich. Try grated carrot or cucumber in a cheese or peanut butter sandwich. Spinach leaves, tomato, finely cut onion and mushrooms work well in a toasted sandwich.
