Fancy a change from Weetabix and toast and jam? Try these three healthy breakfast recipes – perfect for weekends!

Strawberry Smoothie

Smoothies really are a great way to start the day. They’re refreshing and offer a nutritious boost.

Add four large strawberries, 60ml of almond milk, half a banana, one tbsp of greek or low-fat yogurt and three ice cubes into a blender and blitz until smooth then serve.

Mushroom Omelette

Eggs are a great choice for breakfast. Mix them up with mushrooms for a tasty omelette. If you can’t live without the cheese, then try adding a spoon of cottage cheese for a healthier alternative – it’s crazy – but it works.

Thinly slice a handful of mushrooms. Spray a non-stick pan with olive oil then add the mushrooms to brown, before adding three whisked eggs. Take one tablespoon of cottage cheese and add this to the pan. Use a spoon to stir the mixture gently to distribute the cottage cheese evenly. After a couple of minutes when the omelette has set, use a spatula to gently flip it to cook the other top. Serve with sprinkling of chopped spring onions or coriander.

Pear Porridge

This is comfort food at it’s healthiest. The oats will keep you going all day and the pears and cinnamon will take care of those sweet-tooth cravings. Add a spoon of omega-3-rich walnuts for extra crunch.

Add 30g of porridge oats into a pan with 150ml of semi-skimmed milk. Cook over a medium heat for about five minutes, stirring regularly, until the mixture takes on a creamy consistency. Remove from the heat and add to a bowl, along with one ripe diced pear and one tsp of ground cinnamon. Mix through and enjoy.
