A high-protein, nutrient-dense, post-run body rebuilder
• 4 rashers bacon
• 2 slices wholemeal bread
• 1 clove garlic
• 1 tbsp salsa
• Handful spinach leaves
• Handful sun-dried tomatoes
Per serving (serves 1)
Prep time: 10 minutes
1 Switch on the grill and trim the fat from the rashers (this can cut their fat content by almost half).
2 Stick the rashers under the grill, then lightly toast the bread. Rub each toasted slice with a halved garlic clove (adding flavour and eliminating the need for butter).
3 When the bacon is cooked, leave it to rest for a minute between two sheets of kitchen towel to soak up the excess fat.
4 Spread the salsa directly on the toast and layer on the spinach and sun-dried tomatoes. Consume immediately – as if you needed telling.
