Power Up Your Breakfast

If you run out the door with a granola bar, bagel or grab a donut at the office, chances are you’re not getting adequate protein to fuel your muscles or get a proper balance of nutrients to fuel your next workout. It’s time to change your breakfast routine. Keep the following foods on hand or prep breakfast the night before, so you can grab ‘n go during busy mornings!

  • Greek Yogurt: Add in a sprinkle of nuts and wheat germ for healthy fats, texture, and a little more protein.
  • 1-2 Eggs: Keep a supply of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge and combine with a piece of fruit or toast for a well-balanced breakfast. Another egg option is to make your own breakfast sandwiches with a whole-grain English muffin, a slice of cheese and Canadian bacon. Keep in the freezer or fridge and microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  • Nut Butter: Spread 1-2 tablespoons on toast, grab a piece of fruit, and you’re out the door with fuel in hand!
