2. Rolled porridge oats
PORRIDGE provides an essential part of any breakfast when a boxer is preparing for a long, high-intensity day of training whereby multiple sessions may be undertaken. Porridge is a perfect carbohydrate source that will provide the necessary energy for fuelling high-intensity sessions. Porridge is also a low-GI carbohydrate source which means that it provides a steady release of energy in the hours after consumption; this will also have positive implications for body composition. For those who do not like porridge by itself it may be useful to add different fruits, i.e. blueberries, or nuts with half a teaspoon of honey to sweeten it.
