In honour of Women’s Day, we’re making something special to give the women in our lives that extra oomph – everything from breakfast to treats to sweeten these tough times

Wholegrain flapjacks with apple and nut granola

It can be hard to include enough fibre in our daily diets. These flapjacks are bursting with fibres and the nut granola is high in omega oils. This breakfast will keep you fuller for longer and it’s also a perfect post-workout snack.

Juicy ostrich and avo burgers

Burgers can be healthy. We used ostrich mince, which is much lower in fat and high in iron. We’re also making the patties a little smaller for a lighter meal.
