Fitness skills and awesome grillsLiving a healthy lifestyle with red meat
Taking care of our health is important, and particularly during teenage years when our bodies are growing and developing. Being mindful of what we eat and how often we exercise at this stage of our lives can help us ensure we live happily and healthily in the future.
We have teamed up with Llanelli-based rugby team, the Scarlets, to show you how to stay fit and make the most of red meat as part of a healthy balanced diet.
With great tips on how to eat healthily, training circuits, meal planning, some quick and easy nutrient-packed recipes and more be sure to grab your copy of ‘Your Guide to Fitness Skills and Awesome Grills’!

When it comes to managing your fitness, having basic cooking skills is equally as important as honing your skills on the pitch.
Knowing exactly what food you are putting on your plate and how to prepare and cook it will make it so much easier (and better for you), particularly when it comes to rustling up a speedy post workout meal.
