This is one of the best plant-based breakfast for runner’s, and is packed with vitamins, antioxidants, iron and protein.
It can be enjoyed after your post morning run to aid recovery, or as a quick nutritional meal to fuel you for your afternoon run. Best of all it is 100% vegan, and it will ensure your body is provided with all the nutrients it needs from plant-based foods.
- Half a cup of porridge oats
- 1 full cup of water
- 2 tea spoon full’s of milled organic flaxseed
- A generous helping of blueberries
- 1 tablespoon full of brown rice protein powder *recommended
- 1 tablespoon full of pea protein powder *recommended
*The foods listed above will provide the body with all the nutrients it needs to refuel and aid recovery but for additional protein go for a vegan friendly, plant-based protein supplement.
We recommend adding a brown rice protein isolate, and a pea protein isolate powders. By combing the two protein powders we get all the amino acids whey (milk) protein isolate provides.
To begin, add half a cup of oats, a great source of slow releasing carbohydrates, not to mention a source of protein.
Add a full cup of water and heat on the cooker until the oats and water thicken.
If you have chosen too (recommended), add and mix in the protein powders.
Once happy add a small handful of walnuts and a generous helping of blueberries, which are full of vitamin C, vitamin B-6, vitamin A, potassium, and magnesium.
To finish with add 2 tea spoon full’s of milled organic flaxseed, which will provide our iron, zinc, calcium, dietary fibre and heart healthy Omega 3 fats.
