Hello hello hello! This week for #cleanplate we’re looking at meals that will help you get the most out of your exercise! Also as some of you may know, it’s National Breakfast Week, so we thought we’d combine the best of both and bring you a breakfast that is perfect for all of you fantastic people who are hitting the gym!

We asked Michelle what her top pick would be and this is what she had to say:

“Oats are high in fibre which regulates digestion and relieves stress on the digestive system, decreasing the likelihood of discomfort in the gut before, during and after exercise.

Seeds are a rich source of magnesium which helps to boost energy levels. They also help to lower the glycaemic load of the meal therefore providing a slow release of energy, making you feel fuller for longer and less likely to feel sluggish before lunch”

To get the recipe for this healthy and unbelievable tasty brekkie, click here. Don’t forget to keep up to date with us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter by using #cleanplate and tagging us!

Today’s #cleanplate recipe is an extra tasty one and we’ve learnt something new too! Try to buy beetroot with the leaves still on so that you can include them in nutritious meals!

Beetroot is gorgeous on its own but it must be admitted there is something wonderful about everything on your plate turning a fantastic shade of pink so add your favourite veg to this salad if you want to bulk it out for a dinner option! Our tasty roasted seeds add a wonderful texture to this salad so add your favourite flavour!
