Breakfast is very important. Not a day goes by that I don't grab a banana or have a bowl of oatmeal and coffee. Some mornings I have a 5:15am run or bike meeting time which means I have to get up at the very latest...4:30...so that I can drink my coffee and grab a bite to eat. And who are we kidding, use the WC, which is important when you are heading out for a long ride or run in the middle of nowhere. (WC = bathroom for those of you who don't know what I'm talking about). And another important thing is knowing what your tummy can handle. There is no way in hell I could eat biscuits and gravy, though they are delicious, before a workout.
I always have my eye out for something simple and tasty to grab and eat while I'm still half asleep.
XPS Baking Company was nice enough to send us REV3 - ers some samples of their delish cookies. I was not sure when to eat them - so I thought breakfast was a good time to start.
They have four fantastic flavors:
And all four are WONDERFUL! They are soft, moist, fresh, and filling! The people at XPS crew will bake, package, and ship your order the the SAME DAY! Can't get much fresher then that. They kept me going and comfortably full throughout my entire workout. So if you are looking for something new, check out XPS Baking Company.
