Going for Gold!

Adam Peaty has done it!

Not only did the swimmer beat his own world record in the Men’s 100m breaststroke event, he was also the first Olympian to win Gold for Great Britain in Rio!

So as the Olympics heat up for Great Britain and all the other amazing Olympians from around the world, we though it only right to do a special feature on Adam. This weeks box includes some of the ingredients you’ll need to make Adam Peaty’s very own Thai Green Curry (whilst Adam opted for quorn, we know that the dish will also go perfectly with chicken). After all, Adam says that in order to beat world records and stay in the best shape possible, he ‘gets through piles of veg’ every single day!
