  1. Prepare your pitta’s salad by tossing the tomatoes, cucumber and salad leaves in a bowl. The vitamin C in your tomatoes fights oxidative stress from exercise, while the cucumber’s 96% water content will help to rehydrate you post-workout.

  2. The pitta is precisely what you need after training, as your body is primed to absorb carbs and replenish lost glycogen. Heat your bread and falafel in the microwave for 45 seconds each, and then slice the pitta carefully down one side to create a pocket.

  3. Start assembling your lunch by spreading the houmous in your pitta. Either cut your falafels in half, or leave them whole and stuff them inside, followed by the salad. Drizzle over some tahini, then head to the gym to work up some hunger.
