Speaking to HT Lifestyle, Saloni Jhaveri, in-house nutritionist, Conscious Food, suggested healthy pre-workout breakfast options that you should try.

1. Homemade yogurt with fruit and granola: Yogurt is an excellent source of protein that helps build and repair muscle tissue. Add your favorite fruits for carbs and fiber and top with granola for extra crunch and energy.

2. Oatmeal with almonds and berries or raisins: Oatmeal is an excellent source of complex carbohydrates that provide a steady source of energy during exercise. Add chopped almonds for healthy fats and protein, and some berries or raisins for extra vitamins and antioxidants.

3. Smoothie with spinach and banana: Smoothies are a great way to pack a lot of nutrients into a quick and easy breakfast. Mix spinach, banana, protein powder (or a scoop of oats) and your favorite milk or yogurt for a healthy and energizing pre-workout snack. Spinach provides iron and other nutrients, while bananas give you a good dose of carbohydrates for energy.

Tanisha Bawa, certified nutrition coach, founder of TAN|365, shares her expertise with HT Lifestyle on three pre-workout breakfast options.

1. Chia seed pudding with almond milk

It’s a great tasty breakfast packed with fiber, protein and fats! Because it’s a great source of fat, there’s a slow release of energy that will keep you fueling your hard workouts.

2. Nut butter in sourdough

It’s the perfect combination of carbs and protein before a workout. Carbs give you the energy you need, and protein helps build muscle.

3. Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are high in fiber and contain many beneficial nutrients such as vitamins A, B6, K and potassium. They provide a constant flow of energy to help you improve your workouts.
