GB star striker Alex Danson’s nutrition tips

This blog post from BBC Good Food interviews Team GB star striker Alex Danson about her diet. Apparently, it’s lentil burgers, veg stir fry and jacket potatoes and beans that fuel all those incredible goals!

Love her advice for amateur athletes.She says ‘train harder than you think possible and then make sure you refuel with foods high in protein and carbs.’ She insists recovery is important as is taking on board nutrients 20 mins after exercise (ideally a low-fat milk shake and a couple of pieces of fruit).
