TORQ’s 2:1 Any Time SNAQ Meals have been developed alongside our long-standing Performance Nutrition range. Athletes and physically active people should aim to consume 20-25g of high quality protein 5-6 times per day to promote a positive NET protein balance and deliver the essential amino acids responsible for muscular remodelling and cellular adaptation.
Intermittent interval type activity, strength training or lighter endurance exercise will not deplete the body’s stored glycogen reserves as extensively as high intensity endurance activity. Our 2:1 SNAQ Meals have been designed to satisfy an athlete or physically active person’s nutritional demands when carbohydrate replenishment is less important, whilst ensuring that a standardised 25g dose of high quality protein is delivered.
Available in two tasty vegetarian flavours, Smoked Tomato and Field Mushroom, supplied in convenient individual single-use pouches.
Our 2:1 Any Time SNAQ Meals can be enjoyed at any time of day. Simply add contents of the pack to 400ml of boiling water and cook for 10 minutes either on the hob or in the microwave. Garnish your 2:1 SNAQ Meal, with a vegetable side to ensure a complete meal balanced with carbohydrate, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and dietary fibre to support a healthy, athletic lifestyle.
Consuming rich, lean sources of carbohydrates and proteins can promote the replenishment of muscle glycogen (the body’s store of carbohydrate) and enhance training adaptation by ensuing there is sufficient availability of free circulating proteins required for muscular and cellular repair and reconstruction by stimulating muscle protein synthesis factors. Our 2:1 SNAQ Meals contain 25g of premium quality vegetarian protein with an extensive amino acid range. The protein is delivered primarily from our unique and highly functional TORQ Protein Fusilli (available separately) ensuring an extremely low fat source of the highest quality protein.
The extremely low fat content of the 2:1 SNAQ Meals ensures that both carbohydrate and protein are delivered quickly and efficiently to the blood, optimising the supply of ‘useful’ calories. This means that our meals contain fewer overall calories than would typically be consumed if creating your own recipes, because of the prevalence of fat in many commercially available protein sources and food ingredients in general.
Immediately after heavy exercise, we would always recommend the consumption of TORQ Recovery Drink, due to the rapid absorption of TORQ’s multi-transportable carbohydrates found within TORQ Recovery and other nutrients unique to the product like Ribose and Glutamine. You could also consider simply consuming one of our 3:1 Recovery SNAQ meals as these represent a viable alternative to a recovery drink?
In the hours following exercise it is important that you continue to facilitate the recovery process by consuming nutritious, balanced foods and our 2:1 SNAQ Meals provide an exceptionally effective ‘savoury’ method of ensuring the optimum quality and quantity of nutrients consumed. It may be that you have chosen to consume our recovery drink for its effectiveness and convenience immediately after exercise and because your next scheduled training session isn’t intended to be overly demanding, only a moderate intake of carbohydrate is required from your next meal. At the same time, regular 25g ingestions of high quality protein throughout the day remain essential from a recovery and protein balance perspective.
Similarly, you might simply be on a low load training week, creating a lower carbohydrate demand and the 2:1 SNAQ Meals serve to support this environment, once again providing the regular 25g doses of essential high quality protein to maintain muscular maintenance, development and cellular adaptation.
We take our ingredient choices very seriously here at TORQ and there is no doubt that the SNAQ Meals we have created are ‘real food’. We have always held the firm philosophy that whilst dietary performance is our priority, we will always forge a natural path, which is why we have Soil Association Organic and Fairtrade Foundation approval on many of our products. Our meals have been developed using natural vegetable powders, herbs, spices and seasoning to complement the technical high protein and regular pastas which provide the majority of the macronutrient calories.
Our SNAQ meals are deliberately low in fat to facilitate the rapid absorption of useful calories and we make a point of suggesting that you should accompany your meal with a fresh salad, broccoli, green beans or other fibrous vitamin-rich vegetables. Our meals can be consumed on their own without accompaniment and will be highly functional, but we would always recommend regular consumption of fresh fruit and vegetables, because the fibre and micronutrients contained within these fresh foods are essential for a healthy balanced diet.
As the SNAQ range develops, we intend to offer greater variety as well as customised dietary plans through our consultancy to optimise nutritional practices during training and competition, along with programs to facilitate body fat loss whilst at the same time developing muscular integrity and power. These plans won’t feature TORQ products exclusively of course, they will include recipes using other regular healthy foods too. We’re not looking to take over the world, we just know how beneficial a solid understanding of the timing and composition of one’s meals will affect physical performance and the TORQ SNAQ range has been developed with this firmly in mind.
A number of TORQ’s Performance Products are certified Organic or Fairtrade and we will be offering similar options in the future within our SNAQ range.
A primary motivation for establishing the SNAQ range at TORQ has been to fulfil the needs of serious World Class competitive athletes who travel the globe to compete at the highest level. The SNAQ range provides an ever-expanding range of foods with standardised nutritional profiles to remove the guesswork many of these athletes have to contend with every time they travel.
This principle translates to any physically active person travelling either within the UK or globally to take part in events. Being able to create healthy optimised meals easily with full knowledge of the nutritional profile, where the only external ingredient required is a source of fresh water has huge value.
