Festive Dining Experiences

Dining Out

The humble turkey… the festive season wouldn’t be the same without it. Packed with iron, zinc and potassium, it’s one of the leaner meats, a staple of clean living recipes.

Coupled with brussels sprouts (a great source of vitamin C) and you’re looking at a pretty healthy meal. Cue lashings of gravy, a generous helping of roast potatoes and a smothering of bread sauce and it’s a different story. But it is Christmas after all…

If like us you’re bored of turkey but looking for some festive dining experiences, here’s a round up of our favourites with ideas for workouts in-between…
