  Posted on December 01, 2016 08:53

A new month means it’s time for a new team lunch! A perfect opportunity to brush up the culinary arts and serve up as healthy a meal as possible for your colleagues! This time, we have concocted a recipe straight out of the athletic cookbook, namely a sandwich with grilled turkey and tzatziki. Here are some details about the dish and the ingredients that go into it.

Turkey

Protein bomb

Turkey is richer in proteins – the building blocks for your muscles (and your entire body) – than other meats. With 150 grams of turkey, you have enough for your daily protein intake. Furthermore, turkey is easily digestible and thus ideal for a sports diet.

Low calorie

Turkey is unquestionably the calorie champion. The meat is so lean, even chicken cannot match it. And turkey scores better than chicken on the fat front too.

Turkey is a good source of vitamins (B3 and B6) and minerals (phosphorus, selenium, calcium, potassium, zinc and iron).

Eating too much meat is not a good idea, but as turkey is the leanest variety, it is perfect for sandwiches or a warm meal.

Good source of vitamins (B3 and B6) and minerals (phosphorus, selenium, calcium, potassium, zinc and iron).

Cucumber (in tzatziki) is low-calorie and contains a lot of water above all. It also contains few nutrients, and is therefore not as healthy as other fruit and vegetables. Cucumber contains few vitamins and minerals and is consequently not a super healthy vegetable, which does not however mean that cucumbers cannot fit in a diet or are harmful to health.

Greek yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is often singled out as the healthiest variety of all yoghurts. It is actually yoghurt where all moisture has been filtered out. The result is a thicker, creamy yoghurt with more taste.

Why is Greek yoghurt so healthy? It’s best to choose a Greek yoghurt with a lot of protein, about 9 to 10 grams per 100 grams. An adult person needs some 0.8 grams of protein per kilo of bodyweight. Greek yoghurt is an ideal supplement to your diet to start the day.
