Dill-licious Sammo’s Salmon

By | November 8th, 2015|Food 4 sport|

A very a-pea-ling Salmon dish. Dill-icious! As a marathon runner I try to eat at least 3 servings of oily fish every week for both the protein benefits and the fact it's packed full of healthy omega-3 oils, essential for your cardio-vascular health, your joints & also aids digestion. I usually grill my [...]

Bonfire Rice

By | November 6th, 2015|Food 4 sport|

Bonfire rice - great for after training on those cold wet nights In the dark cold wet days I like to stay warm with a good lunch. Some of the best meals are made with what is left in the fridge. This recipe was born from half a tin of left over chopped [...]

Pump-in Pumpkin Pesto Pasta - perfect for Halloween I came across Meridian Pumpkin Seed Butter and thought I would try it on my bagel but it just didn’t cut it for me, well not like almond butter does. I was on a mission to find the perfect recipe to appreciate this jar of [...]

Milk alternatives make me smile Fortunately I don’t have intolerance to cows milk I’m just not keen on the taste. I really enjoy a warming drink before bed especially as the nights get darker and colder but I was always disguising the taste of cows milk with chocolate or honey. Since a young [...]

Even on tired days you can't help but be inspired by the beautiful surroundings and tranquil atmosphere out of the trails of the Pyrenees. It's my 6th consecutive summer here training and wouldn't wish to be anywhere else.

Let’s go nuts (and seeds)

By | July 13th, 2015|Food 4 sport|

I've recently been given the great opportunity to become a Meridian ambassador.  I have to confess, I have a bit of an obsession with nut and seed butters and I’m always trying to find a new way of incorporating them into my food but sometimes there is nothing like a spoon of almond butter to [...]

I’m always on the lookout for tasty treats and healthy options. I was recently lucky enough to receive some sample Chi products. Apart from coconut water and milk they also do coconut oil which I have a bit of an addiction to. I use it for cooking but also put it in my porridge and [...]
