Sweet ideas
• Peanut butter and banana.

• Cream cheese or quark with sliced
apple and a drizzle of honey.

• Cottage cheese with tinned pineapple.

 

Equipment: Toaster, kettle or microwave, knife

Savoury ideas:
• Beans on toast. If you can, opt for the “no added sugar and salt” versions, they taste the same as the standard ones. Microwave, heat in a pan or have cold.

• Scrambled/boiled/poached eggs – you can microwave, use a kettle (for boiled eggs) or use a pan. Try this with a yeast extract spread on toast for added nutrients and a delicious twist. A sliced tomato is also a great addition.

• Tinned mackerel or sardines in tomato sauce on toast. Mash up the fish, spread it on the toast. Adding some sliced onion – any kind will do, is a delicious added extra.

• Light cream cheese or cottage cheese, lean ham, tomato and cucumber.
