Nutritionist top tip: This meal provides 10.8g fibre per portion, 36% of the daily recommended amount. To increase this even more switch the white pasta for wholemeal to provide 15.9g (53%), however this may be better on a non-training day so it doesn’t cause digestive discomfort. Feel free to increase the amount of pasta as you get closer to race day and need that carbohydrate boost!
