Prawn and Garlic Rice Dish

It is hard to always know what to make for meals, knowing for sure that what you’re eating is healthy and going to help you to achieve your goals. Healthy doesn’t have to mean boring or bland, you just have to be creative. This dish is one of my absolute fav post workout meals because it is the perfect balance of carbohydrates and protein for glycogen restore and muscle replenishment. Fuelling your body is essential to put your body in the best situation from feeding your muscles the nutrients they need and also maintaining your metabolism and blood sugar levels for optimum training, therefore leading in the best results.

This Prawn and Garlic Rice dish is full of flavour and I really look forward to eating it after a super sweaty workout, it is always so quick and easy to cook in one pan.

1 garlic clove
