Fit fish around your workout

Busy training schedules, taking part in sporting events and travelling to and from competitions can make it harder to eat a balanced diet that provides all the nutrients needed for good health. But a poor diet can affect our performance.

Following health guidelines and eating two portions of fish a week, one of which should be oily such as mackerelsardines, fresh tunasalmon or trout, can help to boost nutrient intakes.

Better still, fish is quick to prepare and cook – ideal when you’re short of time. It’s versatile and delicious, too – try tuna in a sandwichprawns in a saladsushi on-the-run, grilled white fish with new potatoes and veg, or any fish in a curry or stir fry.
