5 Best Pre-Workout Breakfasts

breakfast workout fitness nutrition

Set yourself up for a successful day by eating a healthy, nutritious breakfast and crushing your morning workout. Here are 5 of the best pre-workout breakfasts, as recommended by athletes and nutritionists.

1. Toast with marmalade

Alice Hector is a professional ultra runner so needs to be able to fuel quickly and efficiently before long endurance training sessions. "For breakfast, I keep it very simple: two slices of brown toast with butter and marmalade. My breakfast has been the same for almost a whole year now (I went through a porridge phase before) plus a nice coffee. I find I can run stomach-problem-free on this within a few minutes."

2. Homemade peach crumble

Kim Graves is a competitive triathlete and needs a boost of energy in the morning to fuel her long days of training. "I make a mean peach crumble for breakfast on workout mornings. Peaches, baked with a muesli crumble, topped with extra seeds, dried fruit and some protein powder. It's basically dessert for breakfast!"

3. Overnight oats

Lucy Richardson is a competitive triathlete who spends her winters living, training, and competing in Thailand. "My breakfast every day is a variation of overnight oats: oats soaked in water with some agave for sweetener. Then in the morning I add fruit; I put berries, apple, and bananas in a blender with peanut butter. It makes a gorgeous creamy topping to go on the oats with a sprinkling of granola for crunch! It's the best, protein-packed, vegan, slow releasing energy breakfast and I never get bored of it as I always swap the fruit."

4. Bagel with peanut butter

Helena Kvepa is an Ironman Triathlete who needs lots of fuel and energy for long days of intense training. "My go-to breakfast before a long ride or run is a raisin and cinnamon bagel with crunchy peanut butter and banana with some coffee. For a swim, it's usually Active Root carb drink, as it's great to prevent cramping."

5. Topped sourdough

Alex Webb is an athlete who understand the importance of slow-releasing carbs with a balance of fats and protein for a top breakfast. "My pre-training breakfast varies, but my favourite is a piece of sourdough or rye (one with lots of seeds), topped with peanut butter, a bit of honey, and fresh blueberries. I love it; it's sweet, tangy, and nutty."
