When life gets busy and time is not on our side, breakfast is usually the first casualty. You may want to think twice if you skip breakfast as you might be sabotaging your performance goals, on and off the trails. Eating breakfast helps with concentration and memory and reduces irritability and fatigue by keeping energy and blood sugar levels stable. A balanced breakfast also increases your intake of important nutrients and makes you less likely to overeat later in the day which is important for weight management.
The next time you’re heading out the door with an empty stomach, reach for one of these protein-packed, fiber-full and nutrient-rich meals that are easy, quick and convenient.
