Healthy and tasty
But if you prefer something hearty, you should probably opt for wholemeal bread with scrambled eggs, lean ham, cheese or tomatoes. Or how about a delicious pasta salad – with wholemeal pasta, fresh tomatoes, creamy avocado and fresh herbs. All of these dishes can be prepared and stowed in the saddlebag. And don’t forget: although fat is also a source of energy, it is very difficult to digest. Therefore, one should not eat too much fat before exercise. We don’t want our bodies to concentrate more on digestion than on the beautiful landscape!
A quick boost of energy on the go
After a few hours of intense pedaling, the stomach could start to rumble. And let’s be honest, you could quickly lose your good mood. In this case, you should always have a turbo energy supplier with you. Here is a small selection of popular snacks to eat during exercise!
After sport, food tastes even better
Our energy reserves are mostly empty after sport. So the batteries need to be refilled. The fastest way to do this is with carbohydrates. However, since after sport it’s also a matter of repairing possible damaged muscles, our body also needs protein. The perfect meal after exercise should therefore consist of a mixture of good carbohydrates, healthy proteins, some fat and, ideally, vegetables. So our body is well cared for and ready for the next cycle tour!
Our conclusion: Healthy snacks can consist of very simple products. There is nothing complicated about eating healthy. But you should never lose sight of the most important thing: it should taste good! Enjoy your meal!
