Commonwealth Games 2014 Speciality - Recipes for Athletes

If anyone asks me where would I like to go this season, my answer would certainly be either Brazil for FIFA 2014 or Scotland for the largest multi-sport event, 2014 Commonwealth Games. With 4,950 athletes, belonging to 71 countries, participating in 17 different events, would be worth watching. Isn't it? I'm sure we all will be very busy enjoying the wonderful games from 23 July to 3 August, 2014. An athlete is judged by his wellness and fitness, the exercises involved and the food that he/she eats. So why don’t we have a look on some healthy athletes recipe, it will be fun and you can also add-on to your list of food. Here are 3 healthy breakfast or brunch recipes.
Nut Berry Oatmeal - It is a common saying, “Eat breakfast like a king”. I completely agree with this statement. We must begin our day with something healthy. What could be a better option other than nut berry oatmeal? This is a quick and easy recipe, it is loaded with nutrients as well. The simple breakfast requires skim milk, oatmeal, flaxseed meal, berries of your choice, nuts of your choice and brown sugar or honey. Go for it if you are a real fitness freak. You just require to boil the milk first, add oatmeal and flaxseed meal and keep stirring on low heat till the desired consistency is reached. Pour into the breakfast bowl and top up with berries and nuts. For more nutritious burst, you can also add seasonal fruits to it. Enjoy the healthy treat!
Kiwi-Avocado Smoothie with Lime and Honey:- Breakfast is incomplete without smoothie. The first thing that comes to our mind while thinking about health is smoothie. Isn’t it? Smoothy is a great way of including seasonal fruits/vegetables in your diet as it's very nutritious. Kiwi-avocado smoothie is a healthy way out. The combination not only boosts up the nutritional value but it's tasty as well, when accompanied by honey and lime. Yummzz!! All you need to do is, blending ripe avocado, kiwi, lime juice, honey and milk of your choice (Almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk). Add two-three ice cubes, though I consume it in purest form. This combination is very popular among fitness freaks, I personally love it. :)
Chard and Bacon Quiche - Whether, it’s breakfast or brunch, quiche is something I love to relish. All you require is purple onion, Swiss chard, bacon slices, lowest calorie cheese or vegan cheese and eggs. Infact, you can use spinach plus chard. There are variety of vegan cheese available in the market. You can combine all the ingredients and bake them. And here you are with the yummy delight. This can be served with low-fat dip of your choice, salads and toasts. You can add variant of this also by adding boiled peas, I do this. It drives me crazy :P
Enjoy Commonwealth Games 2014!
