I love my weekends. A time of rest, rejuvenation, relaxation and restoration. And yet last year, in a bid to stay healthy, I found myself trapped in my kitchen each weekend making a week’s worth of lunches so that I didn’t end up eating a sandwich or a bowl of pasta five days in a row. It sucked.

This year I silently vowed that I would not do that again. No more ruined weekends. So I’ve been whipping up lunch each morning as my breakfast cooks. It’s perfect. I realised there are meals you can whip up in the morning that don’t take more than 10 minutes, don’t require endless chopping of vegetables, and are still healthy. Unicorn meals basically. Here are five of them.
