Our philosophy

We know you are busy. So we promise to make it easier to eat well, not harder. We live in confusing times, with more product choice than ever. It sometimes seems that everything is good for you and everything is bad for you – it’s hard to know who to believe. At Healthy Food Guide you will find accurate and unbiased information about healthy eating. We give you simple answers to important questions on food and health. Healthy Food Guide makes it easy and enjoyable to eat well and feel great.

Our recipes section is full of delicious dishes with affordable ingredients and simple preparation. And our advice section has accurate health information you can rely on.

Why you can trust us

Our advice comes from evidence-based science so you get the facts, not myths and misinformation. When there’s scientific debate on a topic, we’ll tell you. And when new evidence comes to light, we’ll let you know about that, too.

Our nutrition writers are degree-qualified and we talk to internationally recognised experts about the latest, most accurate research.

All articles are checked for accuracy by our nutritionist before publication.

We publish sources and references for our health claims.

Our recipes are written to comply with medically sound healthy eating guidelines.

Any advertising in Healthy Food Guide magazine and on this website is clearly separated, and the line between editorial and advertising is never blurred.
