During the week I train at around 6am – absolutely no time to have breakfast and digest. But on the weekends, I have a little lay in and manage to squeeze in a light breakfast before I start training.
I usually leave it about an hour or so before I start training (otherwise you’ll spend most of the time hugging a ceramic bowl!).
My number one go to recipe for a quick and light breakfast in the morning is a…
Banana & almond butter smoothie – serves one
- 1 medium banana
- 2/300 ml of almond milk
- 1 large spoonful of almond butter
- 2 spoons of chia seeds (not too much, this can cause the shake to become gloopy)
- Udo’s Oil (optional)
- Ice cubes
- Blend everything together and you are done!
- Oh, and then wash up 🙂
It has the perfect balance of slow release sugar, metabolising fats and high protein to get your workout started in the right way!
I would usually follow this up with a plain Good Hemp protein shake with coconut water directly after I’ve finished training.
Go try it!
