Breakfast Sweet Potato

August 2, 2017

As a long distance runner, it can be a challenge to properly fuel on the mornings where I train at higher mileage. Breakfasts too high in proteins or fats (eggs, milk, peanut butter, etc) can cause intestinal discomfort and even dehydration due to the intracellular water required to metabolize them. This leaves us with carbs and sugars – no problem right? Two of the most delicious food sources! But oftentimes, carbs and sugars highly processed or partnered with fats.  The best runner’s hack that I have discovered to solve this breakfast debacle is sweet potatoes. Rich in carotene that gives sweet potatoes their orange color is has powerful antioxidant properties and is beneficial for both skin and eye health. Simply bake a sweet potato in your oven or microwave until soft enough to pierce through with a fork, slice open, and drizzle with maple syrup and voila! the perfect breakfast to take you the distance.

 

Note: Maple syrup commonly contains high fructose corn syrup. Log Cabin is a brand commonly found on grocery shelves that is made with real sugar and is the perfect compliment to this healthful breakfast.
