Pre-Ride Breakfast


Huevos Rancheros, sort of … 

Fried Eggs with Salsa Verde

Heat 2 corn tortillas on a cast iron griddle. Top the warm tortillas with a little cheddar cheese and leave on the griddle on low. Warm some salsa verde, either in the microwave or on the stove on low heat. Fry two eggs to your desired doneness. Top each tortilla with one fried egg, then spoon a little salsa over top.

How good were these? They were gone before I even had the chance to mix my own breakfast together. Hmm … I have a feeling these will be requested again.

My New Favorite Pre-Ride Breakfast …

My Special Blend

Place a handful of whole rolled oats in your bowl, then add about 1/2 cup of Trader Joe’s High Fiber O’s*. Spoon over two tablespoons of Qi’a and stir together. Serve with non-fat milk. This blend sits well in my belly during even the most rigorous ride and keeps me full for a long time. I happen to like how it tastes, too, because it’s not too sweet.

*A few months ago Trader Joe’s discontinued this product. I was so unhappy about that that I wrote to corporate! It is back on the shelves now, so apparently I am not the only one who missed it. It’s healthy, has a good blend of protein and fiber, and is loaded with heart healthy whole grains.

Qi’a  is an interesting blend of Chia, Buckwheat, and Hemp Cereal. I recently discovered this at Costco. The Cranberry Vanilla blend is a nice addition because it adds a little sweetness, 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, and 1.9 grams of omega-3’s.

Now you’re all set for a great ride!
