Seafood Chowder


Nothing ever comes to one that is worth having except as a result of hard work”Booker T Washington

Seafood Chowder with fresh Haddock, Muscles and Honduran Prawns.

High in Omega 3’s, Seafood is a becoming more of an important staple in Athletes diets because unlike meat they bring so many other added benefits compared to chicken especially but also other red meats.

For a healthy, balanced diet we should be eating Seafood at least twice a week and therefore these beautiful creatures are of utmost importance to our health as well as the climate and the environment around us.

Seafood is a purely lean food without hardly any added fats and this is because it is fresh from our oceans and their being frozen or refrigerated before sale maintains this.

Aside from Cross Country I am in the midst of Marathon training now and after a 24.91km (16 mile) day yesterday, I do feel as if I have recovered well and quicker today after eating this.

Seafood really is a brilliant recovery meal especially for those of you who are athletes.
