Luscious lunch ideas

Lovely, lovely – smooth, aromatic and with a divine roast and smoky flavour… . While the vegetables are baking you can just set the alarm and be doing other things – or put your feet up! Blending the cooked ingredients is a piece of cake.

Men's Extra: 1 tsp peanut butter (34 cals)

A classic breakfast tweaked for the Fast Day regime!

Adding something fruity to a savoury dish is a great way to bring out the flavours in this lovely dish. Try serving with a good dollop of plain dairy-free yoghurt also.

Gluten-free option: replace with quinoa. For 4 people, use 1 cup of quinoa cooked in one and a half cups of liquid.

A classic dip of Middle-Eastern and Greek origin that is wonderful with falafels, pitta bread, hummus and salad. For a reduced-fat version, halve the quantities of oil and tahini.

 Avocado & Walnut Toast with Tomato & Coriander makes for a lovely light lunch.

Avocados are a big source of protein and healthy fats too - so they do more than just add one more to your five a day!

This is good - the earthy tones of the beetroot go well with the sweetness of carrots and dried fruit and it's a riot of colour too as well as nutritious. Try replacing the raisins with apricots for a change - either unsulphured (dark brown and sweeter) or the orange variety! 

Did you know that sesame seeds are an excellent source...
