Runner’s meal plan

Whether you're training for a 5k or running a marathon, it's important to refuel. A nutritious, balanced diet of wholegrains, lean protein, fruits and veggies is essential for muscle repair and recovery. Start your week with juicy chicken breast shawarma with smashed chickpeas for a protein-packed dinner. Pair omega-3 rich salmon with skin-on new potatoes and fresh green salad. For a plant-based protein boost, serve spicy tofu kebabs with brown rice and raita. On your marks, get set, GO!
