London Marathon or TV Marathon – what to eat over the weekend

In celebration of the London Marathon, we've listed some delicious meal ideas to tuck into whether you're limbering up for the starting line or planning a marathon of your own in front of the TV.

Beating your personal best, craving a feast at the finish line or watching the action on the box, you'll find great protein-packed goodies and energy-releasing carb dishes on Deliveroo.

Prepping for the London Marathon

The Real Greek, London Locations

The Real Greek serves up healthy, balanced dishes inspired by the Eastern Mediterranean. For a pre-Marathon protein hit the day before the big race, their succulent Chicken Skewers are a lean and tasty chicken dinner for born winners.

Jamie's Italian, Nationwide

Looking to carb load the day before? Jamie's Italian's peppery Penne Arrabbiata, with fiery scotch bonnets in a tomato and garlic sauce, will give you an extra bit of pep when you need to pick up the pace.

Daylesford Organic, Notting Hill

For extra fuel when you're gearing up for a 26 mile run through London, Daylesford Organic serves up low cal Protein Bowls full of fresh flavours. Their Pure Omega Organic Protein Bowl is packed with 21g of protein with zesty marinated salmon, so you'll be leaving the rest of the runners for dust on the day.

Rossopomodoro, London Locations

Who said training had to be boring? For carb-loading Naples-style, a light pasta from Rossopomodoro – like a fresh bowl of Spaghetti Aglio, Olio e Limone – is bound to put an extra spring in your step.

Planning a TV marathon or refuelling after the race?

MEATLiquor, Nationwide

If you're watching the Marathon from home, or recharging after the race, MEATLiquor's Towerblock Burger is a sandwich of champions, with fried chicken, Russian dressing and a hash brown to boot.

Big Easy, Chelsea

Lobster Mac n Cheese from Big Easy – this kind of carb loading is best saved for a TV marathon rather than a big race. This luxurious, gooey bowl of gorgeousness is a seriously indulgent dish if you're watching the race at home or feasting at the finish.

Pizza Pilgrims, Clerkenwell

Definitely one to dig into in front of the box, Pizza Pilgrims' white pizza, the Gianfranco Gorgonzola, is a creamy, chewy sourdough delight topped with fior di latte, gorgonzola and ribbons of courgette. With a pizza this good, you'll be racing for the last slice.

Dip & Flip, Brixton

A post shared by Dip & Flip (@dipflippo) on

Dip & Flip's Dips are rich, meaty sandwiches filled with roast chicken, lamb or topside of beef and they're all generously soaked in delicious gravy – so probably all the guilty pleasures you've been craving throughout your training!
