Thai Prawn, Ginger and Spring Onion Stir Fry.

I don’t go to practice everyday to practice. I go to practice to learn something” – Rafael Nadal
The Perfect dish for the day after a big race.
Lots of Important Vitamins and Minerals in the Onion, Chilli, Beansprouts, and other Vegetables. But more importantly vital irons in order to top up the Iron levels after yesterday.
The reason you feel so tired and fatigued after such a big result or race is because your blood iron stores are low after such intense exercise.
So lots of Iron in this dish to refuel the stores.
Beansprouts are low in fats and calories but high in iron and Carbohydrate, which makes it great for that post exercise meal or next day recovery. They can also help the rehydration process after exercise and support the recovery of our muscles and joints.
Prawns, like lots of seafood, has tons of vital Omega oils and fats in them that promote healthy mind especially and therefore can aid the speedier overcoming of fatigue, not to mention vital proteins as well in helping the repairing of the strained muscles.
And finally, obviously, lots of Carbs for refuel in the Noodles 👌.
