5 Breakfasts To Eat Before An Early Workout

In-Shape | 18 Feb, 2022 | Healthy Recipes | Return|

Finding time to work out is always a challenge. For many of our members, the best time to come to the club is bright and early—before work starts or the kids wake up. Since we all know how important it is to get a good night’s sleep, that also means we sometimes hit snooze a few times, throw on our workout gear and head out.

Everybody’s different, and some people feel better without breakfast. But if you find yourself heading to the club on empty only to feel woozy or have your stomach start growling in the middle of BODYPUMP, try one of these super easy breakfast options before you head to the club.

 

1. Banana with nut butter

Even a banana on its own is a pretty great pre-workout breakfast, but if it sounds good, add your favorite nut butter for additional protein. We’re also big fans of nut butter and banana on toast, if you have the time.
 

2. Smoothie

Smoothies are great before a workout because they can be packed with nutrients but still go down easy. You can also make them more or less filling depending on your ingredients. Here are 15 healthy smoothie recipes to choose from.
 

3. Oatmeal or overnight oats

Oats are jam-packed with carbs and fiber, which means you’ll enjoy sustained energy through a long morning workout. You can add all sorts of mix-ins: nuts, nut butters, fruit, yogurt or protein powder. To make things super easy, try making overnight oats so it’s all ready for you in the morning.
 

4. Hard-boiled egg and grapes

Go for hard-boiled eggs when you want an easy-on-the-stomach serving of protein, plus grapes or another sugary fruit for some fast-acting natural energy.
 

5. Glass of chocolate milk

No time at all? Reach for a glass of milk (or your favorite plant-based milk product) for an easy mix of carbs and protein. This would also make a great post-workout snack.
