A MASSIVE summer of sport lies ahead in 2011 and athletes are hard in training for the forthcoming games. Her at the Argus we’re keen to encourage children to lead a healthy, active lifestyle both in school and at home with their family.
That’s why we have teamed up with changeyourmeatnotyourmenu.co.uk and Olympic gold medallist Rebecca Romero to give one reader the chance to win 4 Orbea bikes and £500 worth of sports equipment for your children’s school, courtesy of Davies Sports, leading educational PE and Sports equipment supplier.
Of course eating a varied and balanced diet is just as important as exercise in leading a healthy lifestyle. Rebecca Romero explains; “As an Olympic cyclist and rower, it’s vital that I eat a balanced diet high in energy and giving protein. That’s why I love cooking with turkey. I’m a real foodie so I’m always looking for ways to get the fuel my body needs from tasty recipes. I love cooking with turkey breast as it’s low in fat, versatile and delicious. Try using turkey breast in a recipe that would usually include another type of meat, such as casserole or stir fry, to dish up a nutritious and delicious meal”.
