Nutrition & Hydration will be the key to a successful summer at Shamrock Rovers

The League of Ireland is what’s known as a ‘summer league’. The season runs right through the warmer months before finishing up in October, quite different to most European leagues that are traditionally September to May. In Ireland, we have to cope with the weather going from wet to sunny, with pitches going from soft and slow to dry and fast. We have to adapt and overcome these changes as effectively as possible so that any momentum we have, we can maintain.

As the temperature rises, our season is also starting to heat up. Despite some ups and downs so far in this campaign, we are beginning to hit form at the right time and we will need to keep this momentum through July and August to set us up for a big end to the season. We face some tough games home and away to AIK in the first round of the Europa League qualifiers where we know we will need a fresh and high performing squad if we are to progress through the qualifiers and reach our ultimate goal of playing in the group stages for the first time since 2011-2012.

Keeping Hydrated

To win these games on the fast, dry pitches that we will see over the summer, we will need to be well prepared. Training and hydration will be a huge element to this, but our bodies are not accustomed to playing on hard, pitches so we will need them to adapt quickly in order to avoid injuries and muscle tiredness in order to to maintain top performances. This is where our nutrition and recovery will play a major role for us. Our strength and conditioning staff have put a huge emphasis on being hydrated and well-nourished and the advantages it can give us against competitors. Herbalife Nutrition products allow us to optimise our diet, prepare our bodies for high-level competition and recover quickly.

Rebuild Strength

We use the Herbalife 24 Rebuild Strength for recovery after training and matches. On the harder pitches, our muscles are more susceptible to fatigue and cramping than they are at a Herbalife 24 Rebuild Strength any other time of the year, making it some important that we are taking the at the right times so our bodies can recover as effectively and efficiently as possible. We believe we do this better than any other team and it gives us a real competitive advantage over our rivals.

Playing in Europe is everyone at Shamrock Rovers goal this year and it is up to us as players to deliver that. Whilst achieving this would be great, we also want to keep performing in the league. Getting in to the best possible shape we can be in is the foundation to producing big performances and achieving these goals. Herbalife plays a big part in this and provides us with the product we need as part of our overall training strategy, making them a valued partner.

Hi!, Come to visit my Herbalife Member Website!

 

There’s a great synergy between the Herbalife ethos and mine

HN: This is your second campaign with Herbalife Nutrition, so what did you initially know about the brand and how do you feel about it now?

Rachel: I initially thought Herbalife just made protein drinks, and I wasn’t aware about  the company’s ethos. what is great is how Herbalife promotes the whole active, healthy lifestyle. It’s really lovely that the recipes that I am writing for the company, tie in with that – it has a nice synergy. I think the message is that no matter how busy our lifestyles are, we can always make time to eat well and pay attention to what we’re putting into our bodies.

HN: Which products do you like?

Rachel: The F1 Banana Cream! I had it this morning actually, because I knew that I wouldn’t get to get time to have breakfast. And I really like the F1 Vanilla because I find it’s just really versatile with other flavours. It’s a great one to blend in with fruit and vegetables too l, like I did with the Green Goddess shake.

‘I do love food that looks lovely but isn’t very fussy to create’

HN: Do you like to cook and eat a huge variety of food at all?

Rachel: Yes, I’m really passionate about having the rainbow of colours in my diet, and I’ve tried to reflect that in the recipes I’ve created for Herbalife Nutrition.

I do love simple, seasonal food. Dishes that look lovely but aren’t very fussy to create; simple, concentrating on the ingredients.

Good ingredients give me good energy; I find if you notice you feel lethargic it’s often because you’ve eaten lots of bad food, and then you top up on sugary treats for a quick fix which leads to more lethargy. It’s a repetitive cycle which can be avoided by making sensible choices and eating a balanced, nutritious diet.  I try not to get into that bad cycle.

HN: What is your ethos and how does that resonate with the Herbalife ethos?

Rachel: I am very passionate about healthy food, and how it makes me feel. I really like to have a well-balanced diet and the way it makes me feel.

That’s why it made such sense working with Herbalife Nutrition, because it’s all about finding a good, healthy, balanced way of life. .

HN: Tell us about the recipes we’ve filmed today?

Rachel: The F1 Banana Cream Pancakes are delicious and a real treat for any day of the week. You can make it with lots of berries or grapes if you wish, it’s a great opportunity to get in lots of extra fruits. And of course, you can up the oats and decrease the flour if you like, or use gluten-free flour instead.

The Broad Bean guacamole, is a great way to eat lots of greens and is a perfect breakfast or lunch dish.

Lastly, the Chicken Casserole is just a really nicely balanced dish for all the family. It’s so versatile and you can play around with other vegetables in there too; parsnips with carrots for example, celeriac and any other root vegetables work really well. I also love to put lots of greens in at the end like charred kale for an extra dose of vitamins. I love recipes like this that allow you to vary the ingredients according to the seasons and what I have in stock.

HN: What are your favourite meals and favourite ingredients?

Rachel: Chicken often appears as a bit of an all-round favourite, great for easy casual entertaining, as well as for a cosy family supper. Whether it’s roast or it’s casserole, it’s always a winnerI also couldn’t be without eggs – they never fail to make a delicious breakfast! Poached egg is delicious with so many things and is great served on top of broad bean guacamole on grilled sourdough. They bring so much goodness and are the fastest little food to throw together.

Other favourite ingredients, are chorizo, which I add into anything, be it a chicken casserole or a lovely beany broth soup. It brings so much flavour.

I’m also quite particular about my olive oil; I like to use  a good extra virgin olive oil, because for the goodness, but also for the flavour and also I like a certain amount of butter. For me it’s about having those basic good quality ingredients – delicious sea salt, lots of lemons, big bulbs of garlic…

HN: Do you have any tips for people who want a good healthy breakfast option?

Rachel: I always like to use free range eggs with greens. Two eggs whisked up, cooked in the tiniest bit of butter or olive oil, or coconut oil, and just cooked really quickly as an omelette. And you can add in your greens, whether it’s kale, spinach, chard, wild garlic greens. Even wild garlic leaves with chorizo, tomatoes, coriander, parsley. An omelette base is just brilliant and can just be so versatile.

HN: Is anyone from you family on the shakes, using the shakes?

Rachel: Lucca has been actually. (16-year-old Lucca is a successful Formula 4 driver). He has been making really nice ones with Vanilla with banana and peanut or nut butter.. It’s great as post-workout type of shake which ticks the box perfectly for him as he was looking for a healthy option, complimenting his workout.

He used the F1 Vanilla more than the others I think it’s a great all-rounder. Mind you the F1 New Generation Banana Cream would be really good with nut butter in it as well…

‘Meals are a great way for the family to get together and decompress’

HN: What is your favourite meal of the day, and why?

Rachel: At the weekend it might be breakfast, because we tend to spend a bit of time on breakfast at the weekend. It’s a family get together type of thing. But evening meals are also lovely for everyone to digest the day, talk, sit and relax, perhaps have a glass of wine.  it’s about decompressing and appreciating that time together

HN: What are your go-to meals for a family dinner?

Rachel: We tend to mix it up a little bit. It depends on our moods and also on who is the cook at a given evening. Isaac, my husband quite often cooks, it depends which one of us has been around more during the day that have had some time.

I love making fresh pasta, and then just having it really simply with lots of greens and some olive oil, a little bit of garlic, I absolutely love that and my daughter, Scarlett does too. But then the next day it could be an Asian stir fry, ora classic Irish stew made with lamb. When I cook I do try and please everyone, including myself. I don’t cook two separate meals, it’s just one meal we all eat the same thing.

HN: What is the favourite part for you in your job?

Rachel: The variety, and getting to eat, I just love eating.

HN: You’re a feeder as well not just an eater aren’t you?

Rachel: Yes, otherwise I’d eat it all myself, speaking of which I need to give you biscuits.

HN: What are your plans for 2019?

Rachel: I think I, I am always driving for balance, I think that’s because I’m a Libra, what horoscope are you?

HN: I’m a Leo.

Rachel: Yes, balance in my life, to perhaps, maybe start building a new house.

HN: That’s a big plan.

Rachel: Indeed it is.

Packed with nutrient-rich courgettes, this quick and easy frittata (or Italian omelette!) is great served warm out of the oven or at room temperature.

Serves 6

INGREDIENTS
  • 2-3 courgettes, unpeeled (try to choose small ones)
  • 15g butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 generous tbsp chopped mint
  • salt and pepper
  • 25g butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 150g soft goats cheese

Rachel has prepared some other exciting recipes exclusively for Herbalife Nutrition. Some of these include: Bulgar Wheat SaladHomemade Nut ButterAsian-Spiced Sticky Pork Salad, and Carrot, Apple and Cucumber Salad.

METHOD

Grate one side of each unpeeled courgette, then as soon as you get down to the seeds, turn to the other side and then continue to grate, leaving out the seedy centre. Heat a frying pan and add the 15g of the butter and the olive oil and cook the courgette until just soft but not coloured, about 2 minutes. Then season with the salt and pepper to taste.

Next, whisk the eggs, add in the milk, crushed garlic, chopped mint and then season with the salt and pepper. Then stir in the cooked grated courgettes.

Heat a frying pan till warm then add in the 25g of butter and the 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Allow the butter to melt and foam, swirling it around to coat the pan, then pour in the egg mixture. Cook on a low heat until it’s golden underneath, about 10 minutes, then place the goats cheese in rough pieces about the size of a hazelnut and place under a hot grill or in an oven preheated to 220’C /425’F/Gas 7 to set the top. It should be just cooked in the centre.

Place the pan on a board and serve as is, or slide on to a plate and then cut into wedges to serve.

Note: You could also make individual frittatas by brushing a muffin tin with olive oil and then filling each cup three quarters full. Pop into the oven heated to 180’C/350’F/gas 4 for 20-25 minutes or until firm in the centre. These are good to bring along on a picnic, as they’re still tasty served cold. As a result of making it this way, you should get 20 individual frittatas.

Recipes with Rachel Allen – Asian-Spiced Sticky Pork Salad

Don’t be put off by the long list of ingredients here. Most of them are inexpensive and may already be lurking in your store cupboard at home. We’ve recommended marinating the pork for 30 minutes but if you can prepare a little more in advance and marinate for longer, you’ll be rewarded with a stronger flavour.

Serves 6

SALAD INGREDIENTS:
  • 500g trimmed pork fillet
  • 2 teaspoons five-spice powder
  • 1 tablespoon Thai fish sauce (or Worcestershire sauce)
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1 stick lemongrass, trimmed (see Rachel Recommends) and finely sliced
  • 2 mild red chillis, deseeded and chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, finely grated or crushed
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower oil
  • 6 handfuls of salad leaves including some crunch like Cos leaves
  • A large handful of mint, basil and coriander leaves
  • 1 cucumber, halved lengthwise, deseeded and sliced
  • 4 spring onions, sliced thinly
  • 50g salted peanuts, chopped roughly

Click for Rachel’s other exclusive recipes for Herbalife Nutrition,  including a delicious Bulgur Wheat Salad, a yum Home Made Nut Butter , or a crowd pleaser Chicken Casserole.

INGREDIENTS FOR THE ASIAN DRESSING:
  • 2 small birds eye chillis (red or green), finely sliced
  • 1 large clove of garlic, crushed or finely grated
  • 3 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 4 tablespoons Thai fish sauce
  • 4 tablespoons lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons rice wine vinegar (or cider vinegar)
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

METHOD

Cut the pork fillet into 1cm slices. Place in a bowl and toss with the five-spice powder, the fish sauce, the soy, the lemongrass, the chillis, the garlic, the chopped shallots and the brown sugar. Leave to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Meanwhile make the Asian dressing. Mix together the sliced chillis, the garlic and the caster sugar with the fish sauce, lime juice, the vinegar and the olive oil. Stir well or place in a jar with a lid and shake well. Set aside.

Put a large frying pan or wok on the heat and allow to get hot. Drain the pork but reserve the marinade for later. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the sunflower oil into the pan and once hot, arrange the drained pork in the base of the pan in a single layer (you might need to cook it in 2 batches).

Cook on either side for a couple of minutes till cooked and golden on the outside. Pour the reserved marinade into all the pork in the pan and cook uncovered, still over a high heat, until the marinade reduces to a thick sticky sauce.

While the pork is cooking, in a large bowl toss the salad leaves (torn if large) with the herbs and the sliced cucumber. Dress with some of the dressing and tip out onto a wide serving plate or shallow bowl.

Place the pork with all the sauce over the top, tossing gently, then scatter over the sliced spring onions and the peanuts and serve right away.

Time to take it up a gear…

My last fitness update was me giving myself a gentle nudge back into working out but now, at a year post baby, I do not have quite the same concerns as I had then.  My abs have married back together at last and all my pelvic floor work did the trick (although truthfully I have yet to try the trampoline test and have no desire to).  So back to it.

Over the past three months through things have started really to fall into place for me with a great mix of workouts that fit into my lifestyle right now and the results have surprised me to be honest.  I started seeing Colin once a week for an hour long PT session and that hour has changed everything.  We spend most of the time focusing on weights, not huge weights…  probably not even medium weights, but weights that I can lift and move with and he pushes me.  He pushes me way past that point when I want to give up and I think I truly cannot finish that set of reps.  And guess what?  It works.  I got results.  My only goal was to tone but that extra hour a week has seen me drop 3kg and decrease my body fat percentage by 3% as well as get in better shape than before (although, in case you were wondering, my belly button remains stubborn and confused).

I asked Colin to share a quick and simple body weight workout to get lean and toned that can be done at home with no equipment (aka no excuses).  So here you go –

20 seconds high knees
30 seconds press ups
40 seconds lunges
50 seconds burpees
60 seconds squats

x 5 rounds

(Yeah five.  Often when we start our sessions together I get one round in and think ‘pah, this is gonna be a breeze’ – if you start thinking that just go ahead and come back to me with your sweaty face when you get to round four…  or five.  Not pretty.)

Please do not misunderstand me, it takes more than one hour a week to get results and I still do at least two Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred home workouts at least twice a week as well as many, many dog walks.  Here’s what’s new though – I try to incorporate three hour long walks a week and I recently got back into tennis and I freaking LOVE it.  There is no better way to enjoy staying in shape than kicking your husband’s ass on the tennis court a couple of times a week.  I promise.

Now let’s talk about that big bowl of creamy, smooth, raspberry goodness…

If you have followed for a while you probably know that I am a big smoothie fan – one of the fastest, easiest ways to get a whole heap of nutrients into your body and you do not need to be any kind of chef I assure you.  I was so happy when Herbalife reached out to share their Pro 20 because protein powder has been such an important smoothie ingredient for me over the past ten years and I am especially keen to incorporate it when I am taking my workouts up a notch.  I tried and tested over a six week period just to make sure it really did the job and it did…

When I did a lil’ instagram survey 70% of you had never tried protein powder and a whopping 90% of you were interested to know why I did.  Well, you know sometimes you have a smoothie and an hour later you find yourself hungry again?  Protein is about to be your best friend.  You know when you finish a workout and you feel like you will never make it till dinner time?  Protein is your new friend too.  It is not just for bodybuilders, it is for you and me.  But to put it more eloquently and scientifically I asked Colin for his thoughts –

‘Protein is a macronutrient in our diet contained in foods such as fish, meat, eggs and pulses.  It is used by the body for several purposes including tissue growth and repair, building a strong immune system and as an energy source.  When we are performing any form of resistance (weight) training, it is important we have a high protein intake to help support muscle repair and growth.  To ensure we are getting enough protein in our diet a supplement is a great idea! Try to pick a protein supplement which is low in sugar – meaning low additional calories.  We should aim for around 20-30g of protein after a workout (ideally within the first couple of hours) for maximum effect.  Much more than this and the body will excrete excess as a waste product.  Increasing protein intake in our diets also has the added beneficial effect of keeping us fuller for longer too.’

Makes sense to me.  Pro 20 hits the mark because it is low in sugar, packed with protein, free from artificial flavours, has oodles of vitamins and minerals and happens to be dairy free, gluten free and vegetarian if that’s your thing.  Now let’s make it look sexy too…

CRANACHAN PROTEIN SMOOTHIE

Ingredients (Serves 1)

1 large handful frozen raspberries (plus extra for decorating)
1/2 cup of oats
2 scoops Herbalife Pro 20 Vanilla
1 dribble of honey
200ml water*

Blend, blend, blend.  (I use a Nutri Bullet and love it because it blends anything smooth which is pretty important when you start throwing in things like oats and frozen berries…)  Aaand enjoy.

*You can alter the thickness of the smoothie by adding less water if you prefer a big ol’ bowl you can eat with a spoon but if you are more of a ‘down it in a oner and run out the door’ kinda girl then the quantities above should be spot on for you.  And you can just go ahead a drink it straight out the blender jug too.
