Cozy and Satisfying Breakfast Options for Chilly Days

Hazelnut & Cinnamon Porridge

Waking up on a cold morning doesn’t have to be difficult when breakfast is a bowl of Jenny Craig’s Hazelnut & Cinnamon Porridge.

For a warming breakfast, accompany with a Chai Spiced Poached Pear. Or enjoy your porridge with a serve of canned peaches and pears, however, be sure to choose canned fruit in natural juice rather than syrup.

Caramelised Onion Fritters

Eggs for breakfast? Our Caramelised Onion Fritters are great served with sautéed mushrooms, spinach and cherry tomatoes – the perfect Café-Style Breakfast without needing to leave the comfort of your own home.

Alternatively, why not try accompanying the fritters with a fresh tomato, red onion and parsley salsa, topped with crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese and pomegranate.



Warm Up Your Lunchtime with Hearty Winter Dishes


Potato Tuna Bake

Creamy, cheesy potatoes with tuna for lunch anyone? Enjoy the Potato Tuna Bake with a serving of French Beans with Mint and Lemon.

For a quick lunch side, lightly steam the French beans in a microwave and then toss with mint and lemon dressing once ready to eat. Or serve with a refreshing side salad of crisp lettuce, red onion, cherry tomatoes, and a drizzle of fat-free salad dressing.



Plated serving of winter vegetable lasagne

Vegetable Lasagne

The heartiness of pasta is comforting on a cold day. Our Vegetable Lasagne is great paired with a fresh side salad of rocket, spinach, sliced pear, crumbled reduced fat feta cheese, and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.

If you’re looking for another delightful option, consider accompanying it with a serve of Creamy Cauliflower Soup. This recipe is great to make ahead of time and you can freeze in individual portions, ready for the cold days that call for hot soup.

There’s nothing better than coming home to a warm bowl of Chunky Vegetable Soup on a chilly winter’s night.
