Enthusiasm for food

YOUR SAY: HFG reader Jenny writes…

"I just had to write to let you know how much I enjoy Healthy Food Guide. I have recently subscribed to the magazine as a colleague in the office was always reading your magazine.

The recipes I have tried have all been so tasty and have added new ideas and foods to my weekly menu. I particularly enjoyed the vegetable slices and cakes – and my husband was amazed to find vegetables could taste so delicious in a dessert.

The articles are very interesting, too, and as we live in the country and have a vegetable garden, I particularly enjoy your gardening section.

I left the magazine out and found my husband reading it and he was so impressed with the recipes he has started cooking. So thanks to you, Healthy Food Guide, I now have a night off from cooking and a husband that likes to cook.

I also love the size of the magazine as it fits nicely in my handbag. As it goes everywhere with me I share your recipes and was able to pass on to a colleague who is a vegetarian the item on the sodium in canned foods. My manager now asks me what recipe I ate last night from your weekly meal planner.

So thank you Healthy Food Guide. I can truly say I read your magazine cover to cover and it is good for my health.

As I am a keen tramper (I like to keep fit), maybe a section on ‘What to take in your backpack’ could be a suggestion for an article in the future. As a member of the Manual Tramping Club I know we would appreciate some tips, as when we go away for three to four days tramping, those dehydrated meals get a bit boring.

Thanks again for stimulating my enthusiasm for food."
