Tuck in without busting your meal plan.

2. Fresh tofu and avocado salad, Yakinori

A Japanese twist on a protein-heavy salad, this is vegan food done right. Bite-sized bits of fresh tofu are tossed with avocado, carrots and mixed leaves and drizzled with soy sauce dressing. The tofu is marinated with sunomono – made of cucumber, rice wine vinegar and ginger – to give it an extra burst of flavour. Adventurous eaters could add some calamari for an extra protein punch.

Where: Yakinori, various locations

3. Leafy Greens juice, The Juice Garden

Maybe it's not a meal in itself, but this juice is the perfect thing to kick-start your day or replenish your energy after a workout. Spinach, cucumber, kale, apple, ginger and lemon are blitzed up for a flavoursome and vibrant take on the smoothie revolution. It's made from only the freshest ingredients to give you revitalisation when you need it.

Where: The Juice Garden, two locations in Glasgow

4. Tuna sashimi, Yume Kitchen

Simple, clean, delicious. Sushi lovers know that tuna is one of the best foods out there. It's low in calories and fat, but high in omega-3 – so it's almost unbeatable as a diet-friendly option. Sashimi on its own is just delicate cuts of raw fish, but add some rice and you've delicious tuna sushi. Try out nigiri for the ultimate finger food, or plump for snow crab temaki rolls for an extra hit of nori seaweed.

Where: Yume Kitchen, Bristol

5. Peanut Butter Protein Fries, Kettlebell Kitchen

Looking for a snack that feels far naughtier than it is? Something that'll leave you satisfied but won't break your macro goals? Then go for sweet potato fries smothered in BBQ pulled pork, served with sweet and crunchy homemade red onion chutney. There's also low-fat but full-flavoured cheese, all drizzled in a protein-packed peanut butter sauce.

Where: Kettlebell Kitchen, Manchester

6. Baked Chicken Katsu stew, Chop'd

A post shared by Chop'd Salad Bar (@chopduk) on

Japanese food pops up a lot on healthy eating lists – and for good reason. This dish is an international super-food take on the popular katsu curry. There's protein-rich quinoa, puy lentils, red rice and pea shoots, all covered in an Indonesian Java curry sauce. The breaded chicken cutlet adds an extra dimension, providing savoury protein that adds crunch and depth. Who says healthy food has to be boring?

Where: Chop'd, various locations

7. Carrot cake with walnut and almonds, Sponge and Cream

You can have your cake and eat it. Treats are an important part of your regime to help encourage life-long healthy eating. We know it sounds unlikely, but if you concentrate on sweets with smart ingredients, your gym goals are still going to be safe. So this recipe uses ground almonds for moistness, light brown muscovado sugar for sweetness and a fluffy cream cheese icing. Order a piece to work and be the envy of the office.

Where: Sponge and Cream, London

8. Falloumi in pitta, Falafel King

This is one of those dishes so simple we're amazed nobody came up with it earlier. It's a mix of earthy falafel and salty halloumi cheese, which creates a great contrast of flavour and texture. Serve it up on a wholemeal pitta to cut down the refined sugar, and add boiled eggs for extra protein variety.

Where: Falafel King, Bristol
