Going for a swim first thing in the morning? Here are some tips on having a proper pre-swim breakfast.

Tips On Having A Proper Pre-Swim Breakfast nutrition

Keep It Light

The purpose of a pre-workout meal is to keep your hunger pangs at bay and also give you extra energy to fuel your swim. You don't want anything heavy that will sit in your stomach, cause stomach upset, or make your digestive system work overtime.

Pro tip: try a toasted English muffin lightly smeared with peanut butter, drizzled with honey, and topped with thinly sliced apples.  

Something Is Better Than Nothing

If you can’t imagine getting up any earlier to fix breakfast, try a light snack 30 minutes prior or liquid calories in the form of your favorite Amino VITAL sports drink. ACTION is a great pre-workout hydration option. This will get you the fuel you need to power through your workout! Once your workout is complete, eat a full breakfast. If you start making this part of your normal routine, it will get easier.

Pro tip: pack the food the night before in case you are pressed for time. Your snack will be easier to grab or eat in the car.

Good snack ideas include:

  • Raisins
  • Slice of toast
  • Bagel
  • Banana
  • Strawberries
  • Oranges
  • Amino VITAL ACTION

Snacks to avoid:

  • Processed sugar
  • Energy Drinks
  • High fiber foods
