As many of you know, breakfast for me is really the be all and end all of meals. Breakfast at mine comes before anything else! So what would I typically make for breakfast? Since a lot of my training happens before lunch, it is really important for me to make sure I fuel up at breakfast with slow release carbs and protein.
My go to breakfast is protein porridge. It is quite the operation since I tend to put everything in my bowl including the kitchen sink! Most people respond to my porridge with ‘oh, I just use oats and milk’. Not here, not here! Here’s a pretty typical protein porridge breakfast of mine and it’s nutritionals.
60g Jumbo Oats
60g Protein Powder ( The Protein Works Millionaires Shortbread Soy Protein)
15g Chia Seeds
3 tbsp Original Choc Shot
1 Sliced Banana
(and in this instance a couple of crumbled oreos)
- Simply mix the dry ingredients together in a bowl
- Add boiling water until at your desired consistency
- Decorate with Sliced Banana, Chocshot
- Optional- crumble oreos on top!
That’s just one of my lovely huge porridge bowls of a morning, I appreciate that not everyone can consume around 700 calories for breakfast BUT given the training I am doing, I can and thought I would give you all an insight into what I was usually have for breakfast. You could reduce the serving size for a smaller portion for example: 40g oats and 30g protein. My porridge theme is changed daily with various toppings and delights, have a look at the other pictures below:.
