Bacon and Egg Salad with Soldiers



You cannot train alone and expect to run a fast time. There is a formula; 100% of me is nothing compared to the 1% of the whole team. That is teamwork”Eliud Kipchoge


A delicious, quick and easy salad recipe perfect for everybody.

However, it was especially good for me ahead of Welsh XC Championships back In February.

The Bacon is grilled so a lot of the fat content has seeped away in the cooking process. However, the healthy fats are left and some fat is important too in terms of reliance on as an extra source of fuel during fatigue when your bodies glucose stores begin to diminish.

Boiled or Poached Eggs are low in GI content (low sugar) which helps performance and also aids quicker recovery of muscles in athletes. Also lots of protein and also some calcium in the egg too.

Tons of obvious Vitamins and Minerals/Fibres in the Lettuce and Tomatoes and Onions. Delicious dish.


3 Rashers of Bacon ( 180 Calories, 0g Fat, 0g Carbs, 0g Protein)

2 Eggs ( 156 Calories, 6g Fat, 1.2g Carbs, 14g Protein)

Handful of Iceberg Lettuce ( 20 Calories, 0g Fat, 0g Carbs, 0g Protein)

Handful of Cherry Tomatoes ( 3 Calories, 0g Fat, 0.7g Carbs, 0.2g Protein)
