  • 15g Peanut Butter
  • 60g Rolled Oats

Lunch: Feta & Peach Couscous

Cook time: 0mins
Prep time: 15mins


Fresh peach adds a summery twist to this simple salad. This is delicious made fresh but can also be packed in a lunchbox for lunch on-the-go. Swap half of the couscous for extra salad leaves or cauliflower rice for a lower carb version.


  • 1/5 Avocado
  • 60g Feta Cheese
  • 1 tbsp Greek Yoghurt
  • 1/2 Garlic Clove
  • 1 Pinch of Pepper
  • 1 Pinch of Salt
  • 20g Rocket Leaves
  • 1/2 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 130g Tomatoes
  • 30g Raw Couscous
  • 150g Cucumber
  • Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
  • 55g Peaches


  1. Prepare the couscous according to packet instructions.
  2. Prepare the salad by dicing the cucumber and tomato and removing the stone from the avocado and cutting into slices. Remove the stone from the peach and chop into chunks.
  3. To make the dressing, finely dice the garlic and then add to the olive oil, Greek yoghurt, lemon juice and salt and pepper in a bowl. Whisk well, add a little water if a runnier dressing is preferred.
  4. Add the salad ingredients to the couscous and mix together before drizzling over the dressing and crumbling the feta over the top.

Dinner: Spicy Prawn & Chickpea Curry

Cook time: 25mins
Prep time: 10mins


We’ve use harissa paste to give this curry a spicy kick – simply add more or less harissa to adjust the spice level to your taste. Either remove or swap the chickpeas for diced courgette for a lower carb alternative. For a vegetarian option, you can use tofu instead of prawns.


  • 150g Flaked Almonds
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 tbsp Sour Cream
  • 115g Canned Chickpeas
  • 5g Fresh Coriander
  • 100g King Prawns
  • 200g Canned Tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Harissa Paste
  • 1/2 Yellow Pepper
  • 1/2 Red Pepper
  • 1/2 Red Onion
  • 1.5 tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1/2 Garlic Clove


  1. Start by dicing the garlic and onion and slicing the peppers.
  2. Add the garlic and onion to a saucepan over a medium heat with the olive oil and fry for a few minutes before adding the peppers, chickpeas and harissa.
  3. Cook for 5 minutes then add the tomatoes and leave to simmer for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, roughly chop the coriander.
  4. Stir the prawns through the curry and leave on the heat for a moment until the prawns are warmed through.
  5. Serve the curry topped with the coriander, lime juice, flaked almonds and a dollop of sour cream.
