Eat a break­fast of cham­pi­ons

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - FEATURES -

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.
