Bircher muesli is a Swiss invention from the turn of the last century. It consists of rolled oats, apple, milk and other ingredients – we've used chia seeds, yogurt and some extra fruit. This is best when it's left to soak overnight, so you'll have a healthy, fuss-free breakfast ready to go in the morning.

Energy balls

We’re seeing these little balls of energy everywhere – they're great to eat before exercise or when you feel as if you're flagging, as the simple sugars in the fruits will give you instant energy and the nuts, nut butters or oats will give you a slow release of energy. We’ve made three flavours, but you can create your own using the same idea. Chill until needed and they'll keep for five days.
