Beat your cold with...meatballs!



I still have 'man flu' so I feel like moping about feeling sorry for myself today!  

When we're feeling like this it's usually a good idea to rest off from the workouts for the first 2 days to let our bodies rest - but that doesn't mean that we're getting lazy - oh no!

Concentrate on an healthy eating plan instead.  Feeling poorly is the perfect time to make some positive changes to your diet.  Your body craves fresh fruit, lots of water, light foods and fresh veg with all their immunity increasing properties, antioxidents and genera lovelyness - so go on, make it happy and change the way you think about your food.

I made these delicious homemade turkey, garlic and sage meatballs - low in fat, high in protein and immune boosting garlic and cold fighting sage.  Tasty and perfect with a helping of fresh linguine a herb salad and a big glass fresh water

Simply blend a slice of wholemeal bread with 2 cloves of garlic, some fresh sage and an onion, a sprinkle of black pepper and some pink salt.  Mix with a 500g of fresh turkey mince and form into small balls.  Brush with a bit of rapeseed oil and pop in the oven at 180 for 20 mins.
