How to liven up a leafy salad


Wheat biscuits, greengages, soya milk

I clearly need to buy some more breakfast cereals and will be doing so soon! The chopped greengages tasted great, but looked decidedly un-photogenic so don’t appear for that reason.


‘Cream cheese’, spinach and cucumber sandwich, apple, flapjack

This was another sandwich using the Tofutti vegan cream cheese (garlic and herb flavour), plus some spinach and cucumber. I used one of the Warburtons sandwich thins again, which are really good for lunch. The flapjacks were one of the Blackfriars range, which includes many animal-free options.


Mushroom and Spinach Pasta, salad


This is always a great dinner if you want something quick and easy but tasty and nutritious at the same time. You can see the full recipe here. I just had a leafy salad on the side with some salted cashews and olive oil to make it more exciting (and less healthy). Other good ingredients for livening up salads include sunflower and pumpkin seeds (especially drizzled with soy sauce and roasted briefly in the oven), sultanas and figs.





There isn’t always that much room for dessert after a pasta dish, but Sainsbury’s seem to have started doing a Basics range of blueberries which are just as good as the more expensive ones.
