Many of us don’t know what to eat before a day’s ride to fuel our bodies. It’s extremely important to fuel yourself the night before as it is an hour before your ride. For today’s blog, here is a breakdown of what you need an hour before the big ride: clean high energy food that converts into energy, digests fast in your stomach so it won’t sit giving you the full sluggish feeling.
Here’s one of my favourites, I call it the “Avocado Power Breakfast”.
Cooking Time: 20 min
1 slice of Kirkland pre-cooked bacon
1 tbl of cooked ham
1 organic large egg
1 tbl of old cheddar cheese
+ 1 tbl of soft goat cheese
There are two options for baking this yummy concoction. Option one involves scrambling the eggs in advance, then placing them in the avocado. Sprinkle the egg and avocado with cheese and meat. Bake in the oven at 350F to melt the cheese.
Option 2: Scoop out the pit hole a bit bigger and crack a raw egg into it, then cover it with the meat and cheese. Bake it in the oven until the egg is cooked - about 20 min.

Here’s why it’s a power meal for riders. It gives you lots of clean fat burning energy and protein to fuel your muscles. As it digests within the hour it is ready for your body to use as energy immediately. I added the goat cheese as a side for it is high calcium to strengthen our bones. For some of us, like me, who gently tumble off the bike at least once a day. ;-)
