The Protein Cluster Bomb

  • Cooking Time: 10min
  • Protein: 34g
  • Carbs: 26g Energy 1 699 kJ
  • Saturated Fats: 0.5g

What you’ll need:

  • 2 Medium-sized sweet potatoes
  • 1 Can of tuna in water
  • A pinch of chilli flakes
  • 1 Spring onion, sliced
  • 150G Low-fat cottage cheese
  • 1 Office microwave

Step 1 – 0-8 minutes Don’t worry, you’re only really prepping for 30 seconds. Prick the sweet potatoes all over with a fork, then microwave. Flip them over halfway through.

Step 2 – 8-9 minutes Once they’re done, cut the potatoes lengthways and squeeze the ends inwards to make a pocket for your muscle-friendly payload. They’ll be ridiculously hot, so leave to steam away.

Step 3 – 9-10 minutes Meanwhile, drain the tuna and mix in the chilli and spring onion. Pack the low-GI shell with your filling and top with cottage cheese. It’s a more explosive postworkout meal than anything on the street. And a lot cheaper too.
