A three-egg omelette delivers a good punch for brunch that will keep you feeling full long into the day. Pep up this dish with your own choice of fresh herbs.


4. Very berry breakfast smoothie

If you have a bag of mixed berries in the freezer and a blender in your kitchen, you can whizz up this fruit-packed smoothie whenever you fancy it. A deliciously wholesome choice for brekkie.

Apple and mango complement each other perfectly with both sweet and tart flavours in this creamy, oaty brunch dish. Toasted pumpkin and sunflower seeds add a nutty finish. Soak the oats the night before for a quick breakfast the next day.
