What do you recommend for a post run breakfast?

I train an hour every day in the morning and barely have time to shower and get to work let alone sit down for breakfast. I'm trying to lose weight so it's tempting to have nothing but know it's important to have something or I feel dreadful the next day. What can I just grab on the morning commute? Minimal (i.e. no) preparation involved would be perfect!

A sandwich and a pot of yoghurt?

Yoghurt maybe but not the sandwich. Yup, I'm that lazy! I also have a pathological aversion to bread.

A banana and 2 large spoons of peanut butter - I would have said toast and peanut butter  for the perfect match of carbs and protein but you don't like bread.

how about a you mix some muesli and yoghurt in a tub the night before....or i'm sure you can buy yoghurt topped with granola or soemthing like that....

Good call Ultra IronWolf - i had that after my run yesterday morning.....i usually have porridge and banana but had left it all at work and i was working from home so had to improvise and it was yummy!

Thanks Sydney. Along that theme, I tried to blend yoghurt, apple juice and Oatabix. Oatabix looks like compressed hamster cage bedding bricks and tastes like it too. The blend was more appetizing but I left it for 5mins to shower, came back and it had set like cement. Hope the manufacturers take note!

mmm, i put oats in a smoothie once and i didn't like the outcome...plus i tried oatbix once and thought it was yuck...no need for it when you can have yummy porridge!

Any kind of smoothie would be a good option though and really yummy!

Milkshake or Protein Shake and a couple of slices of Ryvita.

Don't knock Oatibix. I luv them (not on their own though). I have 2 with fibre bran and strawberries. Tastes really nice, its my favourite meal of the day and fantastic nutrition-wise.

Oatibix is reckon there must be real hamster bedding in it as it soaks up milk at an alarming rate.. more than weetabix.

Pengwin, this does require some prep i.e. 1 min empty one sachet of oats-so-simple into a small lidded container and stir in a fruit yoghurt of your choice. Seal and stick in the fridge.

Don't forget to pack a spoon for eating it later!

That sounds really nice.

Have a big dirty burger that you have purchased from McDonalds or another burger-related joint a few days before....

Now we're talking. Although dirty burgers don't appear on many healthy diet lists. Any other savoury suggestions?

Soup (taken with you in a vacuum flask) or a freshly-squeezed fruit/vegetable juice perhaps?
13/05/2009 at 18:23
Thanks Parklife! I might just do that tomorrow.

Mix rolled oats with either milk or apple juice, leave overnight in the fridge and eat with yoghurt the next morning straight out the container. If you are feeling like you could stretch to a little prep, adding grated apple or chopped banana is nice too. I find one part oats to two parts milk/apple juice works well.
