Bored of the same old fillings? Turn your humble sarnie into a nutritious meal of champions
Best for: boosting immunity
Velvety Greek yoghurt gives egg salad a protein boost, along with probiotic bacteria. A study in the Journal of Nutrition found these probiotics helped athletes decrease symptoms of upper respiratory tract infections by up to 50 per cent. Eggs are rich in muscle-friendly protein, vitamin D, vitamin B12 and selenium. Dried fruit adds natural sweetness along with an extra hit of antioxidants and carbs.
Take: a bagel
Combine: 2 mashed hard-boiled eggs + 1 tablespoon of Greek yoghurt + handful of golden raisins + 1/4 teaspoon of dijon mustard + sprinkle of sliced spring onions + 1/4 teaspoon of curry powder
Stack with: avocado slices
