Like cars, the body needs quality fuel to perform to the best of its ability.

So to push your body to the limit during a match or race, a nutritious energy-packed meal beforehand is essential.

Nutritionist Matt Lovell says your meal should be full of high carbohydrate foods such as bread, noodles, pasta, rice and cereals.

The super sandwich is one of the best meals you can eat.

SUPER SANDWICH 1

Ingredients:

  • Three slices of bread
  • Low fat margarine (optional)
  • Cottage cheese
  • Marmite
  • Lettuce
  • Tomatoes
  • Celery

    Take three slices of bread and spread the margarine on them. Or don't if you want to save a few calories.

    Spread the marmite on both sides of one of the slices - this will be your middle slice.

    Put your cottage cheese between two of the sandwiches.

    Chop the lettuce, tomatoes and celery up and place on the third slice of bread.

    Put the three sandwiches on top of each other. And then eat it.

    SUPER SANDWICH 2

    Put the three sandwiches on top of each other. And then eat it.
