Breakfast of Champions

I’ve been waking up really early, and rather than lay there tossing and turning trying to fall back asleep, I’ve decided to put my mornings to good use. Like a crazy person I’ve been getting up and putting in early morning workouts. It’s great to get it out of the way, but it definitely leaves you wanting a good recharge with breakfast.  As a solution, I’ve put together a great post-workout morning meal that is full of healthy energy and protein. The combination of nuts, seeds, and fruit helps rebuild those muscles, and gets you set to conquer the day.


2 Slices of Flax Seed Bread

½ Banana

Almond Butter


Flax Seeds

  1. This looks amazing! You might want to grind the whole flax seeds, they just pass through undigested if they’re eaten whole… ;-)

  2. that’s so funny, thats EXACTLY what I have for lunch nearly every day lately! Nothing beats banana and nut butters on toast. Have you tried it on a cape seed roll from Bakers Delight? The seeds on the roll have so much flavour once they’re roasted from the toaster :) … im hungry

  3. For your body to absorb the nutritional benefits of flax seed, the seed needs to be ground, otherwise it will just pass right through : )

  4. This looks delicious for any meal! Sarah Jane is right about the flax seeds though. Also try Chia seeds. They are nutritional powerhouse(s?) and nice to sprinkle on yogurt.
