Nutritious and delicious, quick and simple to prepare, these colourful ideas for lunch and supper will keep you glowing with health as your training regime ramps up


A hearty chicken quinoa salad augmented with Greek yoghurt

361kcals per serving|| Serves 2|| Prep 5 mins|| Cooking 15 mins

• 200g Peri Peri chicken strips

• 250g mixed salad leaves

• 100g quinoa, ready prepared

• 1 avocado, roughly chopped

• 100g cherry tomatoes halved


• 2 tbsp Greek yoghurt

• 1 lime, zested and juiced

• ½ tsp cumin

• 1 garlic clove, minced

• 2 tbsp white wine vinegar

1 Spray a large, heavy-based non-stick frying pan with your low calorie cooking spray and place over a high heat, adding your Peri Peri chicken strips. Fry for 8-12 minutes. As your chicken cooks, turn it occasionally so it browns evenly. If your chicken strips brown too quickly, reduce the heat to medium-low.

2 Cook until the juices run clear (170˚C on an instant-read thermometer).

3 In a bowl combine your mixed salad leaves, avocado, cherry tomatoes and quinoa.

4 Create your salad dressing by mixing together your lime, yogurt, garlic, vinegar and cumin, whilst whisking in your olive oil.

5 Place your chicken onto your salad and drizzle with your dressing.


Avocados include iron, copper and potass ium and are a good source of folate.


A stir-fry bursting with flavour

About Women’s Running

We’ve taken a running jump into spring with our March issue, which is packed with inspirational ideas on how to go further, get fitter and run faster now that the worst of the cold weather is behind us. We’ve been out on the trails discovering new ways we can inject a bit of wild into our running: from fastpacking to swimruns there are plenty of ways to embrace your inner child and find new ways to love our beloved running. And if that wan’t enough to inspire you to leave the tarmac behind, read our interview with Emily Scott: last summer she climbed 282 Munros (that’s a mountain to the non-Scottish among you) unsupported, in one continuous round. And she’s on the lookout for her next adventure! We’ve also included the Big One: your training guide to getting round a marathon in tip top shape – whether it’s your first marathon, or simply your latest stab at a PB, we’ve got the plan to give you a strong finish. Our extended workout this issue focuses on arms: strong arms are vital for a strong stride, so we’re working on getting rock-hard triceps and biceps to pump our legs. And while we know that running is good for ourselves, did you know you could help others by putting one foot in front of the other? We investigate England Athletic’s Mental Health Champions campaign to support good mental wellbeing through running, and find out how we can get involved at a local level.
