Eating healthily is a vital part to any workout and exercise programme. Here are our 3 Best Breakfast for Working Out and while you are exercising…

1. Protein Porridge

Great pre-workout or before a long busy day:

  • Make a normal bowl of porridge: approx. 40g oats covered with water or milk and put in the microwave for 2min 10seconds.
  • Add scoop of your favourite protein, it can be vegan or whey. Mix in and put in a little hot water if too thick.
  • Add topping such as berries, nuts, flapjack and you’re good to go.

Why Best Breakfast for Working Out?

The oats contain high levels of fibre which helps you stay full for longer. The carbs provided are also slow release meaning they won’t cause a sugar spike and then sudden drop in energy.

Top Tip Protein: 25g of protein also helps you stay full until lunchtime.

2. Salmon and Scramble Egg

Awesome for the carb conscious:

  • Cook half a pack of smoked / flaked salmon in a pan (the oils from this mean you won’t have to add olive oil.)
  • Then crack in 2 eggs and add in a handful of spinach.

Why Best Breakfast for Working Out?

The salmon contains 2 essential fatty acids in the form of omega 3 and 6 which helps support blood pressure regulation, a healthy immune system and brain development. Your body cannot produce these fatty acids on it’s own.

Top Tip Spinach contains iron which is central to ensuring the transportation of oxygen via red blood cells, around the body.

3. Breakfast Smoothie

Perfect for those in a rush or with little time:

In a blender add the following…

  • 1 banana, a handful of spinach and 1 scoop of protein powder (or tofu, sounds weird but the cupboard variety works well)
  • Add your liquid which can be any sort of milk such as almond, cows or soya.
  • Blend with ice cubes to make it cold or pre freeze the banana.

2 of your 5 a day and the potassium is great for blood pressure regulation.
