Pomegranate Raspberry Overnight Oats

Category : Uncategorized

The simple yet profound truth is that no athlete will reach their potential if they fail the manage a nutritious diet.

It truly is that simple and for all the promising athletes that fell short of their goals, the question often asked is whether they addressed diet proper. The answer to that question is as difficult as it is predictable as for decades athletes of promise failed to provide their bodies sufficient nutritional support.

Those days are over and in lieu of a number of dietary questions I thought best to address with a breakfast ‘recipe of the day’. From my kitchen to yours and given the many special offers at this time for the ingredients, I give a favourite breakfast of mine:

Raspberry Banana Overnight Oats

No athlete can achieve their promise if they fail to manage a proper diet.

Simple, yet profound and any suggestion otherwise is nonsense for without the proper dietary support the utmost potential of an athlete will not be realised.

Further to a series of requests from the coaching community I am pleased to publish a number of my favourite recipes, each relatively simple to prepare with items readily available at local grocers. In addition I encourage all readers to either cultivate a garden that includes raspberries or if possible support local farm initiatives that include said crop.
