iVillage.com: Ways to Create a Healthier Morning Routine

Sporty? Don’t Forget Protein

Before your morning workout, be sure to eat a balanced meal of protein, some healthy fat and complex carbohydrates (PFC, to help you remember) so that your body has the fuel to sustain the activity. Allow yourself 30 minutes to digest before exercising. If you prefer to work out first, have a small nibble of some protein and complex carbs, and then have a full breakfast afterward. For hardcore athletes, Duggan suggests leftover protein such as poached salmon or chicken on whole-grain toast or a flaxseed cracker. If hot cereal is your thing, whip up some oatmeal and add a few tablespoons of almond or cashew butter for healthy fat and protein.
