Oats are a superb source of carbohydrate and protein to help fuel training and competition. Oats are also loaded with fiber and B vitamins which help increase satiety and assist in energy metabolism. Cottage cheese is an excellent source of both protein and calcium, important for recovery and bone health. Depending on your nutrition needs, try eating 2-3 French Oat Cakes for breakfast prior to training or competition. To boost antioxidant content, top with berries for a nutrient boost and additional fiber. Need of extra calories? Choose full fat cottage cheese. Dairy intolerant? Replace the cottage cheese with a banana, but be sure to add in a scoop of protein powder to replace the protein!
