Breakfast Recipes for Runners

As runners, we are always on the go (literally) and while most of us make time for running, we don’t have time for much else.  Seriously though, I know it’s not just me when I say I can find time for a 12 mile run but very little extra time to fold the laundry or spend more than 10 minutes preparing breakfast in the morning.

That doesn’t mean that I don’t want whatever I choose to refuel with to taste like cardboard or be packed with junk, which is why I’ve come up with several tasty recipes that you can whip up in a flash and even take with you on the go!

All these recipes are gluten free and vegetarian or vegan!


Blueberry Vanilla Chia Pudding
