Healthy Every Day One of my favourite foodie traditions is making marmalade, and it comes at just the right time of year. It might be cold and grey outside, but I can spend a cosy afternoon in my kitchen, with the radio on and the pans bubbling away, älling the house with the most delicious citrussy smells. And at the end of it, there’s the satisfaction of seeing rows of jars lined up – some I’ll save for my breakfast toast, but I also have a long list of friends and family who put their orders in every year. If you’ve never tried making your own, I recommend having a go – it’s simple and very satisfying. Head to waitrose.com for a simple step-bystep recipe.

Wholegrains are a great way to include more äbre in our diets – try including a variety of äbre-providing foods regularly, such as wholemeal bread, brown pasta or rice, fruit, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds and potatoes with their skins on. Cook’s tip Save time by heating a pack or two of our pre-prepared Carrot, Swede & Potato Mash rather than making your own from scratch.
