For Intensive Exercise
Perfect recovery meal due to its high carbohydrate and protein content. Carbohydrates help replenish our glycogen stores after exercise and protein is used to help our muscles recover and repair.
Omega-3 fats found in some oily fish (e.g. salmon, mackerel and sardines), nuts, seeds and plants have been found to lower LDL cholesterol as well as helping to reduce inflammation. We are recommended to consume at least 2 portions of fish per week and one of these should be oily.
