Nutrition for Runners: Chia Seed Breakfast Bowl

Tonight I decided to post a breakfast recipe. It comes from the Oh She Glows blog so if you are vegan you are in luck here because this one is a vegan recipe.

This recipe is very easy to make. It took me no more than 10 minutes to make tonight and now I have a good source of carbs and protein waiting for me in the morning.

All you have to do to make this recipe is mash a couple bananas and add in almond milk, chia seeds, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Go here for the full recipe.

It does not look like much right now but I will update with a better picture in the morning when it has thickened and I have added raisins and almonds.

Nutrition for Runners: Breakfast Pita Pizzas

I tried this recipe recently and thought I tought I would share it with you. I caught it on the Runner’s World facebook page and it sounded like a good idea right away.

Unfortunately I do not have a picture of it to share but I can assure you it is a good option if you are looking for something different to have for breakfast. For me it was a break from the usual bowl of oatmeal and a bagel.

I did not use the optional sugar when I made them and they turned out just fine. It is a quick and easy recipe to make. I had time to make it in the morning, get both kids ready and have everyone out the door on time.

An added bonus to this one is that it is an easy sell if you have kids that you struggle to feed in the morning before they go to school and you go to work. My four year-old was excited at the idea of having pizza for breakfast and I did not have to worry about her getting distracted and not eating as often happens.
