Welcome to Season 2, episode 5 on Wholefoods in the home. This week, in the last of the present season, The Real Food Chain’s Rich Bowden talks to nutritionist, journalist, food lover and Facebook Page owner Zanna Munro. In an interesting and thought-provoking interview conducted at Bissy’s cafe in Orange, NSW, Zanna talks about a wide range of health and wellbeing issues relating to wholefoods. She covers her own experiences, to such topics as gut health and the Mediterranean Diet. We’ve included the key moments and defining quotes below.
Can the Mediterranean diet boost mental as well as physical health? A new study would suggest so.
It’s a familiar story. You are confronted with a range of diets when you seek information on how to improve your health by changing your eating habits.Some have scientific backing, others don’t. Some are based on the sensible consumption of wholefoods, others just concentrate on a fad “new” ingredient. Many of these are touted as the “next big thing” in wellness and weight loss, though most are eventually discredited as scientific studies reveal how lacking they really are. It’s more than annoying, as the hype that surrounds the false, money-spinning diets obscures the effectiveness of those that do work.

Believed to be one of the most ancient foods known to civilisation, hummus is both delicious and very healthy. It’s also not that difficult to make, though a special “touch” is required to make it taste superb. My mother-in-law Sally has that ability (more on Mum below), however it’s a fairly basic recipe that anyone can try and deliver great results. The fact that it can be made quickly and easily at home is important as much of the store-bought version of the dish is often blanded down, has preservatives and sugar added and is an inferior taste to the homemade version!
