When doing a lot of training or exercise, it’s important eat enough protein to support muscle growth and repair. Getting enough protein is a great way to kick start the recovery process.
Many people eat enough protein over the day, but tend to eat it mostly in the evening meals.
It’s a good idea to spread out your protein intake evenly throughout all of your meals – starting with Breakfast!
I love making bircher muesli for breakfast. It’s quick and easy to make and a perfect meal for busy athletes who need a nutritious grab-and-go solution to fuel them well.
