Avocados provide essential fatty acids and vitamin E and are a concentrated source of energy, which is useful for athletes who eat small energy dense meals before training or competitions.

Heat a saucepan of water to a fast boil, add the soya beans and cook for 4 minutes. Add the asparagus and cook for a further 1-2 minutes or until the asparagus is just tender. Drain well

Heat the vegetable oil in a small frying pan and fry the bacon until crispy.

Whisk the olive oil, vinegar, mustard and lemon zest and season to taste.

Place the asparagus and soya beans in a bowl, add the bacon, avocado and spring onions. Stir in the dressing, adjust seasoning and serve.
