From Salad Love by David Bez (Quadrille, £16.99) is this sweet and savoury salad. Mix 50g salad leaves, 2 sliced peaches, a handful of blueberries, 50g chopped smoked cheddar and a handful of walnuts and fresh mint. Parma or Serrano ham makes a good addition.
Chia is a good source of omega 3 fats, fibre and protein, making them a good breakfast option for that bit between an early class and the start of work. Chia Pods mix chia seeds, various fruits and coconut milk (like a really healthy rice pudding). Chia Pod, £2.49, Waitrose
From Anna Jones’ A Modern Way To Eat (Fourth Estate, £25): the night before, mix 100g oats, 2 tsp white chia seeds, 1 tbsp pumpkin seeds, 350ml milk, 1 tbsp maple syrup, dash of vanilla extract and a squeeze of lemon juice in a bowl. Put in the fridge overnight and serve with peaches the next morning.
Eat’s Mango & Passion Fruit Super Bircher, £1.99, mixes oats, quinoa, dried cranberries, coconut milk, mango and passionfruit compote. Plunge in a spoon, mix it up and you have a sweet, thick and creamy breakfast without the heat and stodge of porridge.
Smoothies are quick to make and cold. So cold. We like BBC Good Food’s recipe: In a blender, put 450g bag frozen berries, 450g pot fat-free strawberry yogurt, 100ml milk, 25g porridge oats and 2 tsp honey. Whizz and serve.
