It’s spring and with that, it’s getting brighter and warmer outside which is a great excuse for exercising outdoors. Whether that be a long walk, a run or even taking a class outside, having a bit of fresh air is great for your body and mind.  We know that when you exercise that you should also make sure that you have eaten enough to keep you going through a session.

Did you know that eating two portions of seafood a week can help boost your nutrient intakes? It’s so easy and versatile to prepare and cook!

Eating seafood can also up your iron intake. Crabmeat, clams, cockles and mussels all have this nutrient which can help to reduce tiredness and fatigue!
