It is SO important to have more than just a carb-loading breakfast the morning before a race! Set yourself up for success with a balanced (carb, fat, protein) meal that keeps blood sugar stable and kicks the race off with a bang.
Here’s a great idea:
- Van’s Power Grain Waffles (1-2)
- Coconut Butter
- Raw Honey
- Chia/Flax Seed Mix
- Hard-boiled egg (1-2)
