Daily breakfast – my favourite
I have to admit that I have a soft spot for breakfasts, big breakfasts! Particularly muesli! I think that breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day, that should definitely not be skipped. It is important for recovery as well, after early morning training sessions. For me, without a larger quantity of food, I cannot concentrate and (particularly after early morning swims) I’m hungry again latest at 10 a.m.
Like said above my passion are cereals / muesli. Martin and me eat it nearly every morning, me sometimes even twice per day. It gives you so many possibilities to modify by using different fruits, different milks, whey or yoghurt, adding nuts and seeds, grains, chocolate etc. and crunchy of course. Crunchy! Martin would probably eat every day only crunchy, vanilla soy milk, chocolate and cinnamon 😉
My choice is normally a banana, basic muesli with amaranth, crunchy, raisins, nuts and normal cow milk (like on the picture). Sometimes I choose different fruits or milk, add seeds or more berries (dried cranberries yummy!).
We also try to squeeze out fresh juice of citrus fruits every morning. Normally oranges with a blood orange, or tangerines. They have not only a lot of vitamins, especially vitamin C (nothing new) but also boost your iron absorption if well-combined with your cereals, for instance.
