Breakfast is the time of day when we need the most calories. Indeed, it conditions the rest of our day both from an energetic and intellectual point of view. And when you're an athlete, it's imperative to concentrate on it. In short, here are 4 tips to be on top!
We're betting on carbohydrates
For a good dose of energy in the morning, we select foods with a high glycemic index. However, it is not a question of plunging into ready-made preparations such as croissants, pain au chocolat or brioches. Here, we rather favour organic food that will act healthily on the body with a lot of fibre. That's why we're betting on organic oatmealbut also, wholemeal bread and fruit.
We take protein for the muscles
Protein is another indispensable asset for a sporty breakfast. So, in the morning, it is strongly recommended to eat it with, for example, some eggs...chicken breast or cottage cheese. Of course, it may seem a bit rough for some, but by mixing oatmeal in cottage cheese and adding seasonal fruits, it will be a good start.
You don't forget the lipids
When we talk about lipids, we're talking about oilseeds, which we can find in the aisle, nuts, cashews, almonds or hazelnuts. Particularly rich in vitamins but also in omega 3 and omega 6, these are foods that allow us to fight against against bad cholesterol while boosting our immune system. And for the sportsman, it's a serious asset on top of that!
Dairy products update
For a sporty breakfast, it is best to avoid dairy products. And if you can't do without it with your muesli, a vegetable drink based on almond milk, spelt or soya is preferable.
