Late-night lifesavers or grease-filled guilty pleasures, the humble kebab gets a long overdue healthy upgrade


In the UK the kebab has got a bad rep: blackened pitta stuffed with an unidentified, grey meat, wet salad and a sauce so spicy it’s almost antibacterial (perhaps to offset the risk of eating the aforementioned meat). Seemingly designed to soak up alcohol, you need to be hammered to want to eat such a specimen, known as a doner but in reality far from its Turkish origins.

However, away from the mardy queues and strip lights of the nighttime economy, the combination of flatbread, vegetables and protein can be the ideal, quick, refuel fix postrun. In fact not only will the recipes presented here help you hit your macros, they’re also easy to make and far tastier than anything shaved off a rotating elephant’s leg. Just make sure you make enough to go round – you don’t want any trouble from the punters in the queue.

About Men's Running

Variety, as they say, is the spice of life and when it comes to running nothing could be truer. Whether novice or veteran, once you’ve got your running shoes on the world opens up to you unlike it does for any other sport. If you just want to pound the pavements you can start the moment you step out the door, either following a beaten path or taking a psycho geographical approach to an area. Or you can head off into nature and run the trails, marked or unmarked, and experience the unique challenges they have to offer. At this time of year those who prefer their runs organised can enter multiple events every weekend – from tiny attendance 10Ks to mass participation marathons – and build up quite a medal collection in the process. And if a marathon isn’t quite long enough for you, the growing number of ultra events means your endurance ambitions are well catered for. Then there are the OCRs, charity dashes, duathlons, triathlons and of course your local parkrun. All of which add to the diversity you enjoy when being part of the running community, whatever your ability. Our aim at Men’s Running is to cover all of these bases and offer a balanced view of what it is to be a runner and the issues and topics that affect and interest us all. Drop us an email on and let us know how we’re geting on – we’d love to hear from you. And don’t forget to head over to for more reviews and features, and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for the latest updates.
