You know those kinda meals you put in your head but never quite get the chance to make? Well turns out it couldn’t be an easier side salad to prepare, and now it’s on my regular hit list. It’s the perfect side salad to any protein, or you can simply add some shredded poached chicken through the mix for a filling and creamy salad

This meal is easily made in under 20 minutes, which is why it’s a regular in my house and an absolute favourite of mine.

Alternatively, you could simply roast the
These creamy oats are the perfect way to wake up warm on those cooler mornings. Made within 2 minutes, there is always time to enjoy a bowl before heading off to work or getting the kids ready for school. Plus, the benefits of oats providing a “blank canvas” means that you can add all the healthy toppings you enjoy (and leave out those that you don’t! – not everyone is the same).
