2. Beetroot and lentil salad

3. Fast home-made baked beans

Let a can of cannellini or butter beans drain. Pick a can that doesn’t have salt added to it. Put in tomato passata and half a teaspoon of smoked paprika to heat it up.

4. Porridge

It only takes a few minutes to make oats in a saucepan or a microwave. Instead of sugar or salt, sprinkle with 80 grams of fresh berries or other fruit.

This will give you one of your five-a-day and taste great at the same time.

5. Pasta with cherry tomatoes and rocket

Separate and cut in half a small bunch of cherry tomatoes for each person while this is going on. After you drain the pasta, add the tomatoes and a handful of rocket to each person right away.

Serve right away. You can use couscous or a pouch of pre-cooked wholegrain rice instead of the pasta if you’d like.

6. Home-made hummus

It’s safe to say that hummus is the dip of the decade. No picnic or drinks party is complete without it. It tastes great on toast, in a sandwich, or on top of a jacket potato.

However, why buy it when you can quickly and cheaply make your own that is better for you? When you want to make hummus, you can use our basic recipe or try beetroot hummus (shown).

7. Smashed avocado and wilted spinach

Heat the spinach for two minutes in the microwave or in a dry pan until it just starts to wilt. Peel an avocado, squeeze in some lemon juice, and mash it up pretty rough.

Put the spinach and avocado on top of the toast. If you have time, you could top it with grilled tomato and a poached egg.

8. Cucumber (or potato) raitha

A cool dip made of yogurt and cucumber goes well with crudités, whole-grain pitta breads, or as a side dish with spicy food. It only takes a minute to make our cucumber raitha recipe.

9. Quick pitta pizzas

Wholemeal pitta breads should be lightly toasted. To do this quickly, put them in the toaster while you heat up the grill. Put tomato purée or passata on top of each pitta.

Some torn-off low-fat mozzarella and sliced tomato should be put on top. You can add sliced spring onions, button mushrooms, or canned sweetcorn that doesn’t have any added salt or sugar.

Put it under a grill that has already been heated for three minutes, or until the cheese melts.

10. Mexican salad (or wrap)

Add half a cherry tomato, chopped spring onion (or red onion), and chopped half an avocado to a can of black beans that have been drained.

Add some chopped fresh coriander leaves and a lot of lime juice. Puree it and serve as a side dish or a light lunch. You can also use it to fill tortillas.
