Is there anything better than waking up to a steaming bowl of sweet and spicy porridge on a cold winter’s morning? We didn’t think so and that’s why we have combined warming cinnamon and fibre rich steel cut oats to start your day strongly. The stewed rhubarb is packed with a tonne of minerals and aids in soothing the stomach, while the addition of apple brings a sweet tang to the tongue. Potassium from the chopped up banana will help keep your blood sugar and blood pressure balanced, while the handful of roasted almonds will help do the same for your protein levels.

A favourite go-to meal when we are in need of something filling and super satisfying. The broth is packed full of nutrient dense vegetables and the chicken will provide you with a healthy dose of lunchtime protein in combination with the corn which is a low GI carbohydrate. This soup will provide you with a sustained slow release of energy throughout your entire day.

TOMATO CHICKPEA LENTIL (V)
A hearty Moroccan style soup that is packed with tasty legumes and delicious vegetables. The tomato base will act as a great source of vitamin C during the cooler months, the chickpeas will serve as your vegetarian source of protein and the lentils will give you that fibre hit you need; all of this served gluten free buckwheat toast.
