This previous weekend I used to be reminded of this recipe although, and the way once we had been coaching for the Nantucket triathlon, it was the one full breakfast Tim was capable of eat and nonetheless really feel superb coaching a few hours later. Even though he seemingly digests tremendous shortly more often than not, he by no means needs to eat breakfast with me earlier than a weekend exercise and opts for an RX bar, sq. bar, or do-it-yourself vitality bar as an alternative, saying he’ll really feel too full.
