In the words of everybody’s mother – breakfast is the most important meal of the day, especially if you are planning a long day in the saddle.
Getting breakfast just right though can be a tricky business. You need to make sure you take on board slow-burning carbohydrates that will keep you feeling comfortably full over a long period of time and will not leave you feeling over-full, sluggish, or worse still – with hunger pangs.
My favourite breakfast is homemade granola served up with Vanilla Greek-style yoghurt and a generous helping of blueberries. Unlike shop-bought versions, it is sugar and additive free and you can tweak it to suit your mood by adding a different array of dried fruits, nuts and seeds each time you make it.
