TRY NEW MEAT-FREE MEALS

Want to up your plant-based eating? You’re not alone, with Sainsbury’s reporting a 45 per cent increase in sales of plantbased products year-on-year. To make it easier for you to eat less meat, the supermarket’s stocking 29 new products. We’re particularly loving the four exclusive frozen Deliciously Ella meals for two: Five Bean Chilli; Sweet Potato & Black Bean Shepherd’s Pie; Yellow Thai Curry; and Cauliflower and Lentil Dahl (all £4.50 for 400g). Each recipe is made in small batches, then quickly frozen; sainsburys.co.uk.

SIP SUPERTEAS

Upgrade your cuppa to an Aduna Super-Tea, and enjoy the benefits of the active botanical ingredients and African superfoods. The pyramidshaped bags contain whole pieces of fruit, herbs, leaves and spices, and they’re organic, 100 per cent natural and vegan. Not only that, they help create incomes for rural African households. Choose from Cleanse, with mint, nettle and Moringa; Vitality, with lemon, ginger and baobab; or Relax, with cinnamon-spiced cacao. Drink them hot or over ice and feel good on several levels. They cost £3.99 for 15 teabags from selected Sainsbury’s and all good health-food stores.

WEAR MULTI-TASKING TRAINERS

We live in trainers most of the time, so are eyeing up Saucony’s new Linear Shade Life on the Run’ collection, which is designed to look just as good in the coffee shop as the gym. Choose your favourite model, from the Freedom TSO 2 to the Liberty TSO, and pick sleek looks in shades including navy, olive, blue, purple and teal to finish off your outfit while still enjoying top performance. Makes sense to us. From £100; saucony.co.uk.
