Beet Pasta Recipe From Health Coach Haile Thomas

Food is about so much more than nutrition—it’s one of the most personal expressions of our cultures, values, and traditions. Our new series, Behind the Recipe, profiles a different healthy cook every month to explore the personal, untold stories of their favorite dishes. This month, health coach Haile Thomas shares how her father’s health inspired her entire family to eat differently—and changed her life in the process.

Growing up, eating food that was “healthy” wasn’t really a priority for my family—we just ate what tasted good. My parents are Jamaican, so my mom would make a lot of traditional Jamaican food including red meat, white rice, green beans, and fish. Those foods were really the cornerstones of my childhood meals.

When I was 9, my dad was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. That’s when, as a whole family, we really started to think more about what we were eating.

Nutrition Alumna Healthy Meal Recipes Featured Nationally By Dollar General – Georgia State University News

Mary Alice Cain (M.S. ’18) created healthy recipes using ingredients found at Dollar General for her nutrition master’s degree final project. Two years later, she helped develop Dollar General’s “Better For You” recipes published on its website. We asked how she found ways to eat healthy on a dollar store budget.

Do you think it’s a myth that you can’t find healthy foods at discount and dollar stores?

“I do. There’s a myth that healthy eating is only for those living in a major city with access to many different grocery stores and high-end specialty stores. Unfortunately, I think the stigma around healthy eating is that it’s expensive. That is not the case, which I set out to prove with my [master’s degree] project.”

What types of foods have you found in these dollar stores?

“Fresh produce is not common in most Dollar General stores, but there are frozen fruits

QUT researchers are working to design faster, cheaper, and better ways to store food.


Published in journal PLOS One, researchers used QUT’s supercomputing facilities to examine the micromechanical behavior of plant tissues and how biological cells behave while dehydrated or dried.

Lead investigator Dr. Charith Rathnayaka is a computational scientist from QUT’s Faculty of Science and Engineering investigating the physics, mathematics, and biology of agricultural cell structures to improve food production.

“By developing the computational model, it is possible to estimate how the cells are being damaged when they are being processed for preservation, storage or packaging,” Dr. Rathnayaka said.

“This innovation has the potential to influence the future of food drying processes globally in terms of reducing cost, optimizing food processing, energy conservation and increasing dried food shelf life.”

Key findings:

  • Study looks at how plant cells behave under different types of

To ensure you’ll never dread or skip it again, here are some clever ways to spice up your midday meal without having to empty your wallet.

Add these cost-effective foods to your shopping list:

  • Avocados

  • Bell peppers
