Breakfast is more important than you may realize. Hit your morning meal out of the park and it sets the tone for the rest of the day. It also gives you the nutrition to hunt, train and excel at work. There are tons of healthy options to get your day started the right way, but for many of us, if it is not convenient, we will not do it. This month, we focus on two options that not only provide a nutritional punch, they are also convenient.
Wilderness Athlete Meal Replacement Shake
Wilderness Athlete Meal Replacement is one of our favorites. We dare you to find a better tasting meal replacement shake and with 18 grams of protein, 24 grams of carbohydrates and 9 grams of fiber, this shake packs a nutritional punch! It provides the ideal level of macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fats) to fuel the body and quash hunger for an extended time period. Due to the high fiber content, it might not be the choice before heading to the tree stand…for obvious reasons, but if you are wanting to lose fat and build muscle, adding WA Meal Replacement is an excellent choice!
Start Right Foods Protein Waffles
A St. Louis company, Start Right has us all asking the same question: Who doesn’t like waffles? Available in original, blueberry and maple flavor, a single serving yields approximately 210 calories, 15 grams of protein and 22 carbohydrates. They are also gluten free. I have had the privilege to befriend owners Clint and Kyle and they are both fantastic people (Clint is a big-time deer hunter). They also happen to market a tasty and nutritionally ense product. It is easy to support them!
Start Right is a product I have began to use before my hunts.
I like a hot breakfast, but I am not getting up any earlier to prepare it. As the coffee brews, I can toss my protein waffles into the toaster and in seconds, I am fueled and ready to get after those whitetails.
The number one way for breakfast to work is to eat it.
When you are pressed for time throughout the week or scrambling to get to the deer stand before dawn,
here are two options that will keep you fueled and provide convenience.
What are some other breakfast options you like that are both healthy and convenient?
