Refuel chicken and quinoa Middle Eastern salad
Try this Middle Eastern inspired protein packed salad for a nutritious way to boost your recovery post run
This protein packed salad will give you all the recovery you need post-run. Quinoa is your super grain; it’s far more nutritionally rich than most grains with a decent dose of protein, plus it contains anti-inflammatory compounds, so great for your post-workout muscles. Added to the chicken breast, this salad offers 60g of protein a pop. The tomatoes and red pepper provide vitamin C to give your slightly weakened post-run immune system a lift, and the pine nuts contain the good kind of monounsaturated fatty acids to help lower cholesterol. The cinnamon in the dressing also gives your metabolism a kick – bonus.
