…or favorite pre-sparring meal for me, anyways.
As practitioners of Krav Maga we are often faced with the question, “what should I eat before my instructors abuse me?” You want something light, optimally, and quick, with minimal cleanup.
Now, I’m no nutritionist but intuition tells me this is pretty healthy. I love having this a few hours before a workout. Doesn’t weigh me down, cause gas, or make me want to barf two minutes into class.
What we have here is:
- A mound of old-fashioned oats (not instant or quickcook oats)
- Handful of fresh blueberries
- Handful of walnuts
- Some dried fruit (papaya, pineapple, raisins, coconut, etc.)
- Half a sliced banana
- Some brown sugar
- Real maple syrup
- Low fat milk to cover
I let it sit for 10 minutes to soften the oats but I don’t cook them. Then chow time.
Give it a try sometime. Your options are limitless.
