Jamie Oliver’s Simple Hummus

Chickpeas – the star ingredient in hummus – are incredibly good for you. High in protein and fiber and more than ten micro nutrients, including a hefty amount of the mineral copper, keeping our hair and skin nice and healthy, this is a great, nutritious snack. Serve it with crunchy veg for dipping, breads ticks or lovely warm flatbreads. JAMIE’S TOP TIPS

  1. Vary how you serve your hummus: crunchy vegetables like radishes, raw asparagus, cos lettuce, or even apple are all delicious – see what’s in season and experiment.
  2. Snacking the right way is super important,and the same goes for how you choose tohydrate yourself. Rather than drinking sugaryfizzy drinks to fill you up, try flavoring water instead. It can be super exciting – try adding fresh strawberries and mint leaves, sliced citrus fruits or refreshing cucumber, and even pomegranate seeds for a fun, tasty and healthy way to stay hydrated.

Jamie Oliver’s Classic Tomato Spaghetti

This is a fantastic midweek meal. Once you’ve made this a few times you can add other simple ingredients, such as baby spinach, chopped arugula leaves, or fresh or frozen peas, to your basic tomato sauce to completely transform it. JAMIE’S TOP TIP It’s important to season the cooking water with salt before you start so that the pasta can absorb it as it cooks.

Jamie Oliver’s Simple Cheese Omelet

This is a great quick meal at any time of the day. Eggs are a fantastic, affordable source of protein, helping our muscles to grow and repair and helping us to feel fuller for longer. Serve your omelet with whole wheat bread and a simple tomato salad for a healthy, balanced meal. JAMIE’S TOP TIPS

  1. Omelets don’t always need to be folded in half with the filling inside, you can leave the omelet open and sprinkle over your favorite ingredients before finishing it under a hot broiler until it’s bubbling and delicious.
  2. A non-stick pan makes cooking an omelet much easier – they’re not too expensive and if you are going to get into making omelets it’s a great investment.
