Spinach mac 'n' cheese
We've given of our most-loved comfort food dishes a makeover by adding extra vegetables and swapping out regular pasta for the wholegrain variety. The result? A low-calorie veggie dinner dish that's still deliciously cheesy and provides 3 of your 5-a-day, along with folate, fibre and calcium.
Spicy pies with sweet potato mash
Notch up an impressive four of your five-a-day with this satisfying recipe, packed with beans and vegetables. Make a batch of six, and freeze any extras for a fuss-free meal on another day. The flavours are loosely based on the classic American sloppy joe, but we've topped it with sweet potato mash instead of serving in a bun. A low-fat, low-calorie, gluten-free dish that's even finished with a sprinkling of cheese - what more could you want?
Salmon pasta salad with lemon & capers
This satisfying salad boasts beneficial omega-3 and counts as two of your five-a-day. Use frozen, skinless wild salmon fillets to keep costs down, and opt for wholewheat pasta, which is a good source of fibre. A lovely, low-calorie lunch that's packed with flavour too!
Wholegrain basmati rice pairs perfectly with protein-rich prawns and plenty of spice in this hearty one-pot. Low in fat and calories, it packs in an impressive 4 of your 5-a-day. It couldn't be an easier addition to your midweek menu - plus it saves on the washing up!
Rustic vegetable soup
A chunky veggie soup packed, flavoured with garlic, basil and thyme, and bulked out with one of our favourite storecupboard superfoods - cheap and filling lentils. Proof that you can eat healthy food on a budget!
Spicy cauliflower rice with minty cucumber raita
Take your tastebuds on a flavour adventure with this vegetarian main, fragrantly spiced with ginger, cardamom and chilli and enriched with creamed coconut. It's a great source of calcium, folate, fibre, iron and vitamin C and provides 4 of your 5-a-day in one delicious dish.
Carrot & pecan muffins
Ideal for breakfast and beyond, these wholesome bakes are reminiscent of mini carrot cakes, but with a surprise ingredient - cannellini beans! They add moisture and help to fit one of your 5-a-day into each sweet treat.
Asian prawn & quinoa salad
With crunchy cucumber, juicy prawns and creamy avocado, this has to be one of the most delicious ways to reach 3 of your 5-a-day. A lovely light, refreshing lunch that's low-calorie and gluten-free too.
Zingy teriyaki beef skewers
Turn lean beef sirloin steak into kebabs and marinate with tamari, chilli and honey, then serve with a herby rice salad scattered with crushed cashew nuts. Rich in folate, fibre, iron and vitamin C - plus it's 3 of your 5-a-day!
Chicken katsu curry
The classic katsu curry gets a nifty makeover in this superhealthy dish. We've baked our almond-crusted chicken breast and served it with a zingy, crunchy cucumber and carrot salad and a spicy curry sauce.
Baked sweet potatoes with lentils & red cabbage slaw
Who can resist a piping hot baked potato? We've opted for a nutrient-rich sweet potato topped with spicy lentil dhal, served with a crunchy red cabbage slaw. It's vegetarian, gluten-free, and rich in calcium and iron.
