Why this recipe is good for rowers

Nutritionist Harriet Bates says: “This meal is great for recovery due to its high-quality protein. In particular, the eggs contain great nutrients such as B vitamins and copper, as well as 7g of protein each.

“Mackerel, eggs and mayonnaise make the fat content of this meal high; however, these are mostly unsaturated and omega-3 fats.

“You can increase the carbohydrate content of this meal by having additional slices of toast.”
