You know those common foods lurking in the back of your cupboard for emergency meals? Turns out they might be healthier than you think…

And don’t take this the wrong way – we aren’t arguing against the power of fresh veg and lean meats. But when it comes to post-workout food hunts, sometimes these aren’t always to hand.

Beans may be the musical fruit, but they’re also a great mix of carbs and protein to restore your muscles after a workout.

But! If you’re looking for more, go for our BBQ protein beans or beans with meatballs.
