Our riders love it: oatmeal for breakfast. A nutritious meal and, as there are endless variations when it comes to ingredients, there is always a flavor to discover matching with your personal taste. Reason enough to share an oatmeal recipe with a surprising twist. The recipe is a true favorite amongst our riders and is from Wout with an egg as a starring ingredient!
Breakfast is supposed to be the kickstart of your day. Our riders have to keep an eye on different nutritional values depending on whether it is a race, training or rest day. It is all about the right amount of energy (kcal) on race and training days, based on the race/training itself and watts a rider cycles on average. This results in a focus on carbohydrates and 40 grams of protein. Breakfast has to be light to digest on those days as well (too fat, too sour or too many fibers are a no-go) and it is scheduled 3 to 4 hours before a race/training starts in order to make sure that the body has stored the energy in time. On the contrary, fibers for breakfast are a recommendation on rest days.
Whether it is a race, training or rest day, a breakfast always has to come with the right nutritional value and a nice flavor if you ask us. Oatmeal serves those two goals perfectly. We can create the right amount of energy (kcal) per rider, per day, just by playing around with the portion size and ingredients. Wout has created his own oatmeal recipe which has been adopted by quite some of our riders. “Breakfast for champions” is what they have called it, a savory recipe with an egg as perhaps a surprising ingredient.
