Morning Rush Fuel
Make pre- dawn ride fuel easy with these simple, healthy breakfast recipes
Always rushing for your earlymorning ride? Don’t forget breakfast! Here are two tasty and nutritious – and quick – meals to fuel your dawn patrol.
YOU’VE SET OUT YOUR KIT AND PUT YOUR BIKE AT THE DOOR, so you won’t waste any time getting ready for your early- morning ride. But you haven’t thought about breakfast – which means you’ll probably stuff a few biscuits into your mouth as you rush out the door. And that will do nothing for your performance.
There are better ways to fuel for early rides, and they’re almost as easy – despite being ‘ proper’ breakfasts. According to Chef Beth Lipton, what you choose depends on how long you’re going to be riding.
“If you’re heading out for a short, easy ride, you can just have your coffee and go,” Lipton says. “For longer rides and workouts, however, good nutrition is key to feeling good and getting the most out of your time.”
Here are two quick morning meals to get you going and keep you full for your ride – easy to make, and even easier to consume.
