Ingredients

100g couscous
3 slices of turkey, diced
3 spring onions, chopped
1 tomato, diced
½ cucumber, diced
Chopped parsley

To make

Prepare the couscous according to packet instructions, then place in a bowl. When cool, mix in the turkey, spring onions, tomato and cucumber. Sprinkle with parsley and eat.

Turkey

Turkey is low in calories, fat and salt, but loaded with the protein needed for your muscles to develop and recover.

Spring onion

These are packed with chromium, a mineral that helps maintain blood-sugar levels and controls cravings.

Tomato

Tomatoes are a source of betacarotene and vitamin C, which help reduce inflammation and muscle soreness.

Cucumber

This is rich in silica, which is needed for healthy connective tissue bones, tendons and ligaments.

Couscous

This grain has a high score on the glycaemic index, so it encourages fast yet effective glycogen replenishment. It is also light and easy to digest.
