There's no excuse for skipping breakfast with this healthy feast
Ingredients (Serves 1-2)
Method1. Simmer the berries in the juice for about two minutes, until soft. 2. Add the water, oats, cinnamon and apple, and cook for three to six minutes. 3. Stir in the flaxseed and natural yoghurt.The BenefitsDiscounted Christmas cranberries won’t just save you a few pennies – they may also help you lose a few pounds. In research published in the Journal of Metabolism, a daily dose of the tart red fruit cuts LDL cholesterol in just two weeks. In a study in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, meanwhile, swapping breakfast cereal for oats for two weeks led to a 47 per cent dip in study subjects’ fat absorption. Flaxseed is one of the few natural sources of leucine, an amino acid that Louisiana State University researchers found helped athletes metabolise fat more efficiently, while leaving lean muscle mass intact.
Porridge, of course!
On my morning long runs, my pre-run meal is eaten at about 6pm the previous day. Not eating first thing might help your training to more efficiently burn fat on your ultra training. Your pre-run snack will just get your carb burners fired up. But if you must .. Porridge
I loved the cider suggestion, too, as I fail to believe the cooking time is enough to evaporate the alcohol. Start the day as you mean to go on
Pre-run I'll just have a banana or white toast with honey. I do shorter runs on fresh air, but Also-ran is tougher than me!
Mille feuille v gel is no contest. Don't blame you!
I don't tend to eat first unless the run is over 15 miles, but I now think I am going to have a pint of cider and a pretty pastry and see what happens.
