After a hard workout, you need to fuel your body for repair and recovery. I opt for making my post workout meals to be big, with 40-60g of protein. This meal is great for the job, as it provides an equal split of macros, full of healthy fats and carbs, and has some super foods mixed in for good measure. Oh, and it tastes DELICIOUS – Eggs (yum), Sweet Potato Fries (yum), Smoky & Sweet Beetroot (yum), Chicken (yum) and a healthy salad (well – I like a salad…). Save 405 calories by downsizing the plate – 1x Chicken Fillet, 2x Eggs, 150g Sweet Potato Fries and remove the Milled Flaxseed mix.

Sweet Potato offers a nice hit of vitamin A, C, Copper, K & B6, plus has a lower blood sugar response than white potato. Eggs are great source of protein and should be a staple for most active people, with egg yolk providing a nice hit of good cholesterol that helps with hormone production and cell energy. Chicken offer great sources of healthy protein. Beetroot is a good source of iron, nitrates, betaine, magnesium and other antioxidants, in addition to helping lower blood pressure and boost exercise performance. The Milled Linwoods blend and Pine Nuts provide a great source of Omega 3, Selenium, Iron, Zinc and Magnesium.
