Eat a breakfast of champions
An elite athlete wouldn’t think of starting the day on an empty tank, and nor should you! Research shows that a nourishing breakfast improves both mental and physical performance for the entire day.
So, if you often have the brain fuzzies by 10am, try taking just a few minutes to make a healthy breakfast before heading out in the morning.
TIPS FOR YOU
Start with protein. Swap jam or vegemite on toast for more satisfying choices such as half a cup of plain Greek-style yoghurt on untoasted muesli or a poached egg on wholegrain toast. No time to sit down? Blitz a banana, berries, oats and plain yoghurt with milk for a fibre-packed smoothie, on-the-go style. Ditch the quick fixes. It’s easy to grab a muffin with your takeaway coffee, but the sugar and refined carbs will leave you with an energy slump afterwards.
