Try this delicious breakfast recipe from Michelin-starred chef and marathoner Gordon Ramsay.
- 200g rolled oats
- 400ml semi-skimmed milk
- 1 apple (leave the skin on)
- 1 tbsp runny honey
- 150ml natural yoghurt
- Handful fresh berries
- Handful toasted walnuts
1. Place the oats in a bowl and pour on all of the semi-skimmed milk. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
2. Grate the apple over the oats, discarding the core and pips. Stir in the honey and the low-fat natural yoghurt. You could add a little more milk or a splash of apple juice if it’s too thick. Serve drizzled with a little more honey and topped with the fresh berries and toasted walnuts.
Why make it?
It’s the ultimate win-win breakfast. “With slow- and fast-releasing carbs in the oats and honey respectively, this is ideal for energy and recovery,” says nutritionist Kim Pearson.
The antioxidant-rich berries will help offset free radical damage that can lead to impaired recovery.
The walnuts contain a hit of omega-3 fatty acids. “These reduce joint tenderness and inflammation, and also benefit the heart,” says Pearson.
