Breakfast/Post work out meal

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created November 28, 2012 at 10:05 AM

I have committed myself to a Tough Mudder at the end of the Summer of 2013 as a motivational goal for training and a fitness level and weight loss. I have been getting up every morning at 3:30 am and either doing a medicine ball work out or running on a C25k program. Does anyone have any suggestions for easy meals that are good for post work out? Note: I DO NOT EAT EGGS!!! I know, I'm strange, but I have hated them my whole life no matter how I eat them. No comments on the egg disliking please, just constructive breakfasts. I have been eating a banana with 1/4 breast of chicken that I roast on the weekend and leave in the fridge. I'm really not sure how much I should be eating or the ratio of carbs to protein...

Thanks, but I'm not doing rice or potatoes...I stick to Whole30 compliant food as much as possible.

Thanks for the egg-less breakfast link ideas! I like the ideas of higher starch/carb from potatoes with protein post workout.

Some great ideas for egg-less breakfasts here and here. Sweet potato hash would be a good option for post workout, along with squash, fruit and other root vegetables (carrots, parsnips, yams etc) for additional carbs.

I can't believe no one has said it yet but CONGRATS! Tough mudder's are a huge challenge, best of luck!!!

You could try a breakfast smoothy with egg white protein powder (if your open to trying it) and fruit or spinach. You could add in a healthy fat like coconut oil or almond butter. Sounds a little odd but you can play with ingredients you like to make it taste good.

Hope this helps a little.

White rice stir fry is an option to mix in if you're open to white rice occasionally (i.e. safe starch). I'm not suggesting eating white rice every day, but for variety ... and post workout seems like a great time for those quick digesting carbs.

Cream of Rice Cereal is a white rice derivative option. Toss in some 85% dark chocolate for a little extra flavor it's health benefits.

Breakfast for me is roast chicken, ground beef, ground lamb, or fish, with a couple cups of veggies cooked down in fat. After my exercise, I eat some starchy carbs.

I'll cook up 3-4 chicken breasts the night before and then slice them into slices/strips and cool. The next morning, I'll cook up some bacon, do a quick douse of the cool chicken into the leftover bacon fat and then place the warm bacon on top of the chicken and eat. It's a personal favorite and takes maybe 10 minutes if the chicken is already cooked.
