How you fuel your body can influence your workout performance. Before you head to the gym in the morning, a nutritious breakfast full of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients can give your body what it needs for a more optimized workout.

The phrase, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day,” might seem like old-fashioned marketing, but when it comes to your workout routine, there is some truth to it. In this case, however, it’s not just about having breakfast—it’s about having a breakfast that complements your fitness goals.

As you get ready to head to any of your favorite Sacramento gyms or your go-to gym near you, here are a few summer breakfast ideas to give your body the fuel it needs to power through your next workout.

Summer Smoothies

Smoothies are a great pre-workout breakfast. One of the great things about smoothies is customization. You can blend ice, leafy greens, dark berries, Greek yogurt, and protein powder in any combination you like to support your nutrition goals while tasting great.

Smoothies are a great on-the-go breakfast option. If time is limited as you hit your go-to Carmichael gym before you get started on the day, you can take your smoothie along for the ride.

As you plan your summer smoothie lineup, be sure to include in-season fruits and veggies. Not only can this be a great way to save on ingredient costs, but summer is full of wonderful flavor options, no matter where you live in California.

Yogurt and Granola

If you want to keep things super simple, a quick blend of yogurt and granola can hit the spot—and get you fueled for your workout. A blend of Greek yogurt and granola can deliver a boost of protein and fiber. If you want to add more nutritional value and flavor, you can also toss in a few berries.

Use any yogurt you prefer. Greek yogurt tends to have a higher protein content per serving, though you can find yogurt with added protein, too. Keep in mind that flavored yogurts can be packed with sugar, so if you’re sugar-conscious, plain yogurt is the way to go.

Eggs and Toast

When you want to add more protein to your diet, eggs are hard to beat. Eggs and toast is another quick breakfast that leaves you feeling ready for your workout. You can also pair your eggs and toast with sauteed greens for more nutritional value.

Leafy greens are packed with essential vitamins and minerals your body needs to thrive—and help you feel more energized before a workout. Avocado is another topping option that can deliver a nutritional punch.

Sweet Potato Power Bowl

Like everything on this list, a sweet potato power bowl can be highly customizable. You can tailor it to your taste and needs. Being summer, you can add plenty of in-season veggies to the mix, as well.

Looking for a little power bowl inspiration? One option includes a blend of roasted sweet potato blended with chickpeas, quinoa, leafy greens, and feta mixed with a dash of salt and pepper and tossed with lemon juice and extra virgin olive oil.
