How many times a day do we come across a headline, whether it’s on our social media feed or splashed across the front of a health magazine, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. It’s become a mantra, caffeine fix, eat something to kick of the metabolism, brush teeth, school run, work. But it’s true, breakfast is King. Not only do you not feel the need to scoff a muffin at 11 o’clock, but it is the perfect meal to keep your energy levels up throughout the day.
Now this couldn’t be more important than when on a ski holiday. The potential sore head from the après ski the day before may well take its toll, but hitting the slopes the following day is always going to be a must, apart from anything the adrenalin buzz and the cold air will blast away any form of ‘the night before’. So if breakfast is the kick start your body needs, you can afford a few extra calories, purely due to the exercise that you will be partaking in for the rest of the day.
Fuelling your body for the day ahead is really important, as you will be burning loads of it, this aside, what you put into your body will need to give you enough energy until the next course. Cooked breakfasts, warm porridge, muesli’s, eggs benedict, smoked fish with scrambled eggs, fruit and a healthy juice to wash it all down, will provide you with the right balance of nutrients and carbohydrates to keep your muscles working. Whether you are self-catering or have a chalet that provides you with delicious menus, all of those requirements will be at hand to keep your body sashaying down the mountain slopes.
