Inspiration is not something that willingly visits the lazy”Peter Tchaikovsky 


This dish is perfect for leading in to another Race week as there are huge amounts of Protein in the Chicken and the Chorizo, important for ensuring my cramp from Inter-Counties stays away and muscles recover.

Also, the low GI content of this and low sugar means ill be able to train hard in next couple days at same intensity because low sugar diets help us as Athletes able to recover quicker.
