Breakfast: Marvellous Muesli
Measure out a cup of oats and pour into a bowl, add apple juice to cover and leave in fridge to set for 5 mins. Meanwhile chop up your apple and plum – when you’re ready to serve, bring the bowl out the fridge and top with fruit and yogurt.

Lunch: Ciabatta Pizza
Cut your Ciabatta roll in half and spread passata over the top of both halves. Top with grated cheese and place under a preheated grill for 3-5 mins until the cheese has melted and is golden brown.

Dinner: Spag & Passata Sauce
Cook your spaghetti in pan of boiling water. While it’s cooking, slice the onion and fry in a pan of oil for about 5-8 mins until softened. Add the passata and cook for about 10-15 mins. Drain the spag, put on plate, top with sauce and some grated cheese (from earlier!).
