Soup-er charge your diet for a wealth of body benefits
Wild rice, wholegrain bread and sausage provide just the right carb-and-protein combo runners need after a long run, says Ryan. Using less meat and lots of mushrooms reduces the fat and calories swimming around in there. Kale is packed with vitamin K, which strengthens bones and reduces fracture risk, and antioxidants that neutralise exercise-induced free radicals.Make it 1 In a pot, saute 100g of cooked, sliced spicy chicken sausage in oil until brown. Remove and set aside. 2 In the same pot, cook 200g of sliced mushrooms until soft; pour in 60ml of water. Add quarter of a teaspoon of dried thyme, one teaspoon of chilli flakes, 800g of chopped kale and 60ml of white wine. Cook until the kale is wilted. 3 Add 600ml of chicken stock and a pinch of salt; simmer for 15 minutes. 4 Stir in 375g of cooked wild rice and simmer for five minutes. Eat with brown bread.
