Mountain bike nutrition tips
Kick start your ride!
Try this awesome breakfast smoothie – a great way to fuel up before getting in the saddle. Bananas and oats provide slow-release carbohydrates, blueberries are packed with antioxidants reducing muscle damage and inflammation, and honey adds sugar for a natural energy hit. Drink this an hour before you begin.
Ingredients for 1 large smoothie:
1 cup yoghurt
½ cup oats
½ cup blueberries
1 tablespoon honey
Boost the protein content by 38% by swapping the honey with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter. Use an overripe banana for extra flavour, frozen blueberries for convenience, porridge oats for a smoother texture. For a dairy free option, swap yoghurt with a plant based protein e.g. soy bean or almond milk.
