A sprinkle of seeds over natural yoghurt will sneak some fat into your day.
Each fat is chemically different

There is no such thing as a 'bad fat'

1.  Breakfast:

Porridge made with oats, low-fat milk, banana & cinnamon

TIP: Add less oats but use regular milk and add pecans.

2. Snack:

Large apple Tip: Choose a smaller apple but smear with peanut butter

3. Lunch:

Sandwich with brown bread, spinach, tomatoes, chicken breast

TIP: Why not have an open sandwich and swap a slice of bread for some avocado?

4. Snack:

Low-fat flavoured yoghurt

TIP: Opt for a natural yoghurt with a sprinkle of seeds

5. Dinner:

Chicken stir fry with rice

Tip: Why not eat less rice but add some cashews?
