Try it! You won’t feel tired or fatigued during your workout.
Its got all the good stuff to give you that energy boost!
These three veges should be high on your produce list for training and health benefits!
High levels of vitamin c helps your body produce collagen, which not only maintains the health of your skin but also aids the health of your tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels, all imortant for a successful workout!
Good source of potassium, which helps maintain muscle strength
Good source of the water soluble vitamin thiamine (aka b1), which plays an essential role in promoting healthy function of the nervous system and cardiovascular system.
PROTEIN: Building blocks of your muscles! Your muscles uses a lot of protein to heal after a tough workout, and the more protein you can get into your system before and after a workout the better. Eat foods that are high in protein. If you work out on a regular basis, use a protein supplement or shake. Foods high in protein: chicken, red meat, protein bars, etc
My breakfast in a bowl contains:
Oatmeal with blueberries, strawberries, sliced bananas, walnuts, raisins, tea-spoon of brown sugar, and 1/2 tea spoon of wheat-germ!
- Losing weight: That fiber in oatmeal helps with weight loss. The oatmeal makes your stomach feel full.
- Energy: Oatmeal has a good number of carbohydrates. A single bowl of oatmeal can help to boost your energy levels (very important in the morning) while not loading your body with fat.
- Fighting cancer: Oatmeal is no cure for cancer, because a cure has yet to be discovered, but oatmeal does contain plenty of insoluble fiber which helps the body to fight against bile acids, and their toxicity, which helps to lower the risks of cancer. At least according to the American Cancer Society.
Bread: Whole Wheat Bread
Spread: Honey Dijon Salad Dressing (My Favorite)
Vegetables: Lettuce or Spring Green Mix, Tomatoes, Cucumber, Onions, Grated Carrots, Grated Radish, Avocado, Olives, Pickles!
Add Cheese of Your Choice!
Put It All Together and Toast in Toaster for Few Minutes!
