I have had stomach issues my whole life. That is what pushed me to do the three month elimination diet, where I found out I was sensitive to gluten and allergic to dairy! I am always trying to figure out the perfect pre-race meal. I have tried everything! A friend of mine recommend trying a liquid breakfast, so I blended together my usual pre-workout favorites:
The search is over! This tastes so good I almost counted it as a cheat meal. It also gave me the perfect balance of calories and carbohydrates!
Chunky Monkey Protein Shake
1/2 cup gluten free rolled oats
1 tbs. peanut butter

handful of ice/ water to get the consistency you like
Mix all ingredients together in blender.
