Staying with friends or family, in a VRBO, or Airbnb during race weekend instead of a hotel and need a pre-race breakfast that will keep you full? Not racing at all? If you have access to a blender, this is a super easy breakfast to start your day regardless of where you’ll be.
This fiber-rich smoothie is perfect for a pre-race breakfast, or after a hard training session where protein is key. With minimal ingredients, this smoothie boasts 4 grams of fiber, 8 grams of protein, and only 212 calories per serving.
- 1 banana
- ½ cup low-fat plain yogurt (though I like vanilla yogurt)
- ½ cup skim milk (I’m a 2% fan over here…)
- ¼ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 2 teaspoons flaxseeds
- 1 tablespoon honey
- 1 cup ice
Combine in a blender and blend until smooth. You might need to blend a little longer than you would for a smoothie without rolled oats in order to break the oats down more. (This recipe makes 2 servings and is one of our favorites from Martha Stewart).
