An Easy Recipe for Muscle Recovery: Farm Boy’s Asian-Style Pan-Seared Tuna
There’s a lot of planning that goes into running, from what to wear, to where to run, to what to eat post-run – especially when training to run a longer distance. Runners rely on their bodies to get them across the finish line and fueling properly is crucial to achieving your running goals.
During a run, the body uses up many of its nutrients and needs an extra boost to help repair and maintain your muscles post-run. While we know protein helps the body recover after exercise, a recent study found that eating higher amounts of protein can help runners become faster. Omega 3 fatty acids also play an important role post-run help with muscle repair and inflammation.
Where can you find high levels of both protein and omega 3? Tuna!
“This tuna recipe is quick and easy to make and uses ingredients easily located in your pantry,” says Caytlin Reel from Farm Boy about why she selected this recipe. “Seafood is a great protein source, and at Farm Boy all our seafood is sustainably sourced.”
