A Post-Workout Lunch

Once I’ve taken off my trainers, stretched and recovered (slightly) from a painful workout, I need me some carbs… and I need them quickly. I’ve recently been throwing together this quick dish when a workout has left me ravenous. It’s very much inspired by my favourite Joe Wick’s recipe and a veggie dish my mum concocted. Below is the recipe!

post workout lunch

Ingredients | For one

  • 1 jacket potato
  • 75g chorizo
  • 7 tomatoes
  • 1 pepper
  • 1 mozzarella ball
  • Coconut oil


  1. Spike the jacket potato all over with a fork. Heat it in the microwave for twelve minutes.
  2. Heat a pan with coconut oil and chop the chorizo into small chunks. Add the chorizo to the pan and stir occasionally.
  3. Chop the tomatoes in half and the pepper into small chunks. Once the chorizo is cooked well, add the tomatoes and pepper.
  4. Once the potato is cooked, chop it roughly and add to the pan.
  5. Stir it all together and tear the mozzarella in with it.
  6. Turn off the heat and let the mozzarella warm up for a minute or so.
  7. Serve!

This dish definitely helps the tired body recover. It has carbs, protein and a good old fashioned dosage of fruit and veg. And cheese- because cheese. There’s nothing like finishing a workout, feeling smug and tucking into this with an episode of Riverdale. I totally recommend.
