  5. Zucchini, Sweet Potato and Spinach Loaf Recipe

This month we have a great tasting and filling way to pack in some extra vegetables and fibre to your diet – especially great for kids or as a breakfast option where vegetables are often lacking.

Why we love it is that apart from being delicious, it can also be eaten like bread and covered with whatever toppings you choose. This makes it a great and creative way to increase your protein intake – by adding something like an egg, cheese or smoked salmon.

Easy to make and can be frozen and reheated in the microwave for a fast, grab and go option.
