Previously we discussed some of the five most desirable foods to eat before a ride. In this second part, you can learn some delicious recipes to make form those wholesome foods.
Avocado Toast: Slice off toasted Whole Wheat, slices of avocado, and an egg (cooked however you like). I recommend putting the avocado down first that why nothing is sliding off as you are trying to eat it. If you’re not worried about your salt intake you can also sprinkle a little bit of garlic salt on top.
Fruit Parfait: Take some yogurt, I like Chobani because of the high levels of protein but any yogurt will work. Cut up some banana and lay it first then the granola on top. Feel free to add some berries as well to get some antioxidants plus it just helps it all come together.
Smoothie Bowl: This one is a big one and you can put every item on the list in this one. In a blender blend together ½-1 cup ice, a frozen banana, apple, ½ cup of yogurt, ½ tablespoon of Matcha, and if you don’t mind a nutty flavor you can add 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter. Blend together add some milk to get to your desired consistence. Pour in to a bowl and top with some fresh fruit and granola.
Peanut Butter and Apples: If you’re like me and not a huge breakfast eater than this is a good option plus its fast. Just cut up some apple slices and spoon out a dollop of peanut butter and dig in.
Matcha Latte: Matcha Lattes are all the rage and they are not as hard to make as you may think. Warm up 1 cup of almond milk not to hot or you will burn the matcha. Combine 1tsp of matcha green tea and hot milk in a blender blend for about 20 seconds or until smooth and frothy. Pour into a mug and enjoy.
