A great dish filling strenuous activity like running a marathon, a long game of rugby or a gruelling cross fit event. Eating indulgent foods should not be taboo or invoke guilt associated feelings. Meals like these should be enjoyed without worry, but eaten less regularly. This meal has a high protein, fat, carb and calorie content, useful perhaps if trying to build muscle in the off season.
