Post-Match Football Nutrition Meal Ideas

Following a gruelling game of football, it can be tempting to just put your feet up and relax while paying little attention to nutrition. Create a meal that offers plenty of carbohydrates and good fats, food that is rich in protein is also highly recommended. Check out this recipe that provides you with exactly that!


  • 1-inch-thick baguette slices — the choice of baguette and the number of slices is up to you
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • Ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon of finely grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper
  • Honey


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
  2. Drizzle the 1-inch-thick baguette slices with 2 teaspoons of extra-virgin olive oil.
  3. Place on a baking tray and toast in the centre of the oven until the baguettes are lightly golden and crispy — this takes approximately 8 to 10 minutes.
  4. After placing the baguettes into the oven, mix together ricotta cheese, lemon zest, kosher salt, black pepper and a tablespoon of olive oil to create the ricotta spread.
  5. Once the baguettes have been toasted, spoon around 2 tablespoons of ricotta spread onto each slice and finish with a ¼ teaspoon of honey on top — a great starter is now ready to eat.
