Breakfast before sports

Back to overview

What kind of breakfast should you have in the morning before exercising? This is, obviously, quite a personal matter, and rather a matter of finding out for yourself what works and what does not. Ideally, you should eat things that give you energy. 

1. Like bananas, for instance, which are ideal to start the day because they contain sugars and act as a natural fast energy source. Bananas also contain magnesium and potassium. That's a good thing, because these minerals ensure that our energy production remains at a good level, that we do not feel tired quickly and that our blood pressure and fluid levels remain in balance!

2. Also try to experiment with oats in the morning because they contain a lot of complex carbohydrates. This makes them an ideal food to eat before your workout. A classic granola breakfast, homemade cereal bars with Pure Toasted Granola or insta-worthy baked oats? Try different breakfast recipes to discover your favorites!

3. Also try to add natural fats; for example with nuts - you should definitely make a yogurt bowl with our Pure Toasted Nuts & Seeds. Also nut butter is an amazing product to add to your breakfast. Just try to get a product without additives and added sugar.

4. Drinking enough water before making a physical effort is very important to ensure a healthy moisture level. Ideally, you should eat at least one hour before exercising so as to avoid feeling uncomfortable during your activity or experiencing pain in the spleen.  

Granola also contains oats and nuts and is ideal for your pre-workout breakfast. Be sure to try this smoothie bowl with frozen banana and XAVIES' Granola. It is great to have before exercising!
