Don’t fancy porridge this morning? Here’s a nice healthy take on another breakfast classic.

Banana and cinnamon are great foods for endurance athletes and using multigrain low GI bread will help keep you fuelled for longer. It’s also packed full of protein from the nuts and seeds. Just make sure it’s a few days old.

This particular version is 420cal. With 52g carbs, 15g healthy fats from the eggs and seeds in the bread, and 20g protein. A great balance of protein and carbs. As much more than 20g of protein per serving is difficult for the body to process efficiently. There’s No need to add anything unhealthy to fry it in. These come out delicious as they are! It’s an extremely quick way to have your morning eggs and so versatile. So get creative with toppings but keep it healthy and nutritious (otherwise just use thick white bread and cover it in maple syrup!). Fresh fruit and berries of all kinds go great with this. But if I’m heading out for a longer ride and need a few extra energy-boosting calories I’ll spread some peanut butter on there, too! IMG_1299
