    Frog swan is all I could think about. Straight in the bin and made porridge with almond milk instead.

    I was taken aback by the cost of chia seeds, but was glad I bought them. This breakfast was delicious and kept me full through to lunchtime. I strayed from the diet plan and made it again the next day.
