Canne fis These con­ve­nient cans are an in­ex­pen­sive way to get a quick boost of fit­ness-friendly nu­tri­ents.

The ben­e­fits Canned sal­mon and sar­dines (with ed­i­ble bones) are a great source of pro­tein and cal­cium, both of which help your bones to stay strong. The healthy omega-3 fats found in oily fish also help main­tain nor­mal blood pres­sure. This is es­sen­tial when you’re ex­er­cis­ing, as your heart has to work that much harder to pump blood around your body, de­liv­er­ing oxy­gen to mus­cles.

QUICK RECIPE BOOST

Choose fish canned in olive oil or spring water (watch the salt con­tent, though) and serve it on whole­grain toast to create a speedy post-gym lunch or din­ner. Or add a can of fish to a delicious, colour­ful salad.
