Monday Meal 15:Banana pancakes with summer fruits

These banana pancakes are one of my go to breakfasts, it has everything a great breakfasts needs to last you through the morning until lunchtime. One reason why breakfast is such an important meal for me is because I feel hungry in the morning. Whereas, if I didn’t eat anything I wouldn’t be able to perform to my best. Which won’t leave a great impression for my clients. So I make sure that I’m fully fuelled. If this sounds like you then I would make sure you have a breakfast with carbohydrates, protein and some fruit or vegetables.

It will set you up nicely for the day. Especially knowing that you have had some of your vital nutrients before lunch time. This will give you peace of mind that you’ve got some vitamins in your body already. Otherwise, if you only have a bland breakfast like cereal or toast it won’t fill you up and wont supply your body with the correct micro nutrients.

Personal trainers tip:

I’m a personal trainer who wants to help his Ascot clients in every way possible. One of those ways is giving them inspiration for meals during the day. Whether that is breakfast lunch or dinner all of the meals need to be covered. I feel that most people don’t have the best breakfast in the world and think that cereal and toast are good every day. However, if you look around the world there are many people who have amazingly healthy breakfasts that we wouldn’t even think of. For example, in some Mediterranean countries they have stewed vegetables for their first meal of the day. Can you imagine how healthy we would be as a nation if we had veg for breakfast rather than jam on toast. What do you think?
