We live in a harried world. There is no doubt about it.

Read the following nutrition panels and make up your mind if it is worth slowing down a little and trying hard to put your own ‘healthy’ food together at home.

Singapore Noodles -316g serving

513 calories, 10.1 g fat (3.2 saturated), 1375mg sodium, 60g carbohydrate, 20g protein, 9.7g sugar

Rippa sub classic chicken burger – 246g serving

731 calories, 40g fat (10.2 saturated), 1402mg sodium, 64g carbohydrate, 24g protein, 1.2 sugar

Things to remember. It is recommended you have no more than approximately 2300 mg sodium per day, no more than 10% of your total energy to come from saturated fat (9 cals per gram of fat). Up to 30% of total calories can come from fat but unsaturated fats and more accurately omega 3’s are identified as super important. None of this in the above two choices.

Atlantic salmon – 198 g serve

400 calories, 26g fat (7.1 saturated), sodium 83mg, carbohydrate 0, protein, sugars 0, 41mg, potassium 605 mg, calcium 13.9mg
