A light meal before a run or as a post-run snack is important, especially if it’s one you can simply pick up and eat with your hands, straight off the plate. Sushi is perfect for this purpose, and these keto-friendly sushi rolls are filled with fatty avocado and tuna to fill you up and power you through. We add egg for extra protein, and sesame seeds for fat, protein and magnesium for muscle recovery.

  • 2 tsp sesame oil
  • 6 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 Tbsp tamari
  • 6 nori sheets
  • 14 oz canned tuna (in olive oil, preferably. Just make sure it’s not flavored)
  • 3 avocados, flesh sliced
  • ½ cucumber, cut into batons
  • 2 red bell peppers, sliced into strips (seeds and core removed)
  • 4 Tbsp sesame seeds, lightly toasted on a dry pan

How to make:

  1. Drizzle the sesame oil into a large non-stick pan and place over a medium heat
  2. Whisk together the beaten eggs and tamari and pour into the heated pan
  3. Cook the egg like a thin omelet, so it’s just cooked on both sides, but not overdone or rubbery
  4. Slice the egg into 6 long strips
  5. Lay the nori sheets onto a large board
  6. Divide the tuna between the nori sheets and lay out into a line across the width of the sheet
  7. Lay the avocado, cucumber and pepper over the tuna, then lay an egg strip over top of the veggies (basically just piling everything into a pile across the nori sheet widthways)
  8. Sprinkle the toasted sesame seeds over the pile and use your hands to roll the sushi into tight logs
  9. Slice the sushi into pieces and eat right away, or wrap each log in Saran wrap and keep in the fridge until needed
