Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But it’s evenmore important when you’re going for a morning workout.
Getting the right nutrients, and enjoying a balanced breakfast can do wonders for your workouts. It will give you more energy, help burn more calories, and can prevent you from getting sick. While it might seem better to save the snacking for after exercise, a bite or two beforehand is the best way to go.
Obviously, a massive, hearty breakfast isn’t the answer. That’s why we’re listing a few of our favourite pre-workout snacks and breakfasts to get your fitness goals back on track.
Everyone loves avocados. Not only are they delicious, they’re also full of healthy fats and proteins to keep the body going. If you prefer a morning run over a morning gym session, whipping up this quick snack will help you burn carbs. Plus, avocados will give you a nice energy boost.
We recommend mashing a quarter of an avocado on rice-wheat or sourdough bread, as these are easier on the gut for digestion. Sprinkle a few flakes of sea salt and chilli flakes for extra flavour.
Smoothies are easy to digest, pack a huge energy boost, and feature plenty of much-needed nutrients to maximize performance.
Our fave smoothie blend? Almond milk, spinach, bananas, apples, and some chia seeds. This mix of fruits, veg, and essential nutrients are the perfect pre-exercise boost.
A bit of all natural peanut butter on whole wheat toast or english muffin will work wonders for your workout. Peanut butter toast offers a good combination of carbs and protein to make long workouts last longer.
Eating a banana a half hour or so before your workout can have tremendous results. They’re a great source of potassium, simple carbs, and natural sugars. They also have a great mix of the ideal sugars athletes need before exercising, making them a great pre-workout snack.
