Breakfast is the most important meal of an athlete’s day, so picking the right ingredientsto perform and recover like a champ is essential.
What if I prefer starting my day with something sweet?No problem!
As always, we want you healthy and happy and have prepared the perfect recipe for ahealthy and quick-to-prepare breakfast that will also satisfy your sweet tooth.
Follow these 6 easy steps whether you’re hoping to achieve new personal records, want more energy to seize the day or are looking to reach the ideal weight.
Today, we know that not all cereals are equal. Oatmeal fills us with plenty of carbohydrates to boost energy and alertness, helps lower cholesterol and prevents certain cancers and cardiovascular diseases.
By now you should have grabbed a large bowl to pour some oatmeal: Time to add sliced fruits on top. Any fruit really, as long as they’re seasonal. Bananas for example, are useful for muscle recovery and cramp reduction, while apricots are low-fat and high-carbohydrate, and provide a good amount of vitamin A, fiber and potassium.
Add a handful of (sliced) almonds as they are particularly suitable for athletes to provide the nutrients they need and boost their sporting performance.
You said you like sweet food and we listened. If the sweetness brought by the fruits earlier is not enough, feel free to add dark chocolate flakes. Source of magnesium and antioxidants, they have a beneficial effect on cramps, help to fight against free radicals and are a great anti-stress. Be reasonable though! ;)
When selecting a milk or plant-based milk, ask yourself what nutrients are most important to you, along with taste, of course. If you need to gain weight, go with whole cow's milk, but if you're trying to cut calories, you can opt for a plant-based option, like almond milk.
Nutrition for athletes includes eating right and staying hydrated, and green tea is the healthiest ingredient we can think of to drink. The list of benefits is long so we’ll focus on all the antioxidants that fight and prevent cell damage.
And because Edony is about mental and physical wellbeing, we slip a free sample of our favorite premium organic green tea in all your orders, for a whole week of healthy breakfasts!
