5 Quick and Healthy Recipes for Busy Runners
Runners are usually a busy bunch. Not only do we need to find time to take care of the house, shuttle the kids to an from school and somehow fit in time to pound the pavement, we also have to find the time to feed the family and maybe if we are lucky – ourselves.
We all know that fueling is important but we often settle for whatever is quick, easy and convenient….which doesn’t always mean it’s tasty….and tasty is usually equated to taking time.
Fortunately, with a little planning (just like you would with your training schedule), it doesn’t have to be a big production. In fact, breakfast can be a breeze AND tasty at the same time….not to mention you get the nutrients you need to refuel from your run properly so you can perform your best.
Below are my five favorite recipes that are not only quick to make but also healthy and of course, allergy friendly.
This gluten free granola is naturally sweetened with Medjool dates which have 50% MORE potassium than a banana. Make it ahead of time and pour yourself a bowl in the morning to refuel after your run.
Add a little excitement to your eggs with some kale and pine nut pesto. Looks fancy and tastes even fancier but it’s actually quick and easy. Just prepare the pesto on the weekend, drizzle it on your Monday morning eggs and you’re good to go!
Chocolate + Espresso. Need I say more? Just like overnight oats, you can make this pudding head of time, store it in a mason jar and grab it to refuel on the go. Easy peasy.
No time for an omelet? Make them into a muffin! Whisk eggs and veggies, pour into a muffin tin, bake and you’ll have a dozen omelet muffins to power you through the week!
Yes, it is possible to enjoy crepes during the week. Make the crepes (and filling) ahead of time, heat up the crepes in a pan, fill with the high protein creamy cappuccino goodness, roll it up and go to town! 😉
