Warburtons High Fibre Recipe ideas

A couple of weeks ago, I told you that we'd taken part in a Fibre Diary Challenge and that the results indicated that we needed to up our fibre intake a bit. Warburtons kindly provided some simple recipes to help us to achieve this so I thought I'd share them with you.
