About our healthy recipe criteria

LiveLighter has around 350 healthy recipes on the web site to suit all tastes. They are consistent with the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating and all contain a nutrition information panel. The focus is on including plenty of vegetables, wholegrains and lean meats and alternatives. We showcase ways of making tasty food that doesn’t include buckets of sugar, butter and salt.

We aim for our recipes to be achievable by the average home cook. This means using ingredients and cooking equipment that are readily available and methods that are simple and not too time consuming. The Back to Basics series of recipes are generally simpler, cheaper and easier than the standard LiveLighter recipes.

LiveLighter nutrition information wallet card.
The recipes meet the LiveLighter nutrition criteria. There must be no nutrients in the red zone, and the majority will be in the green zone.
