Sports breakfasts

This weekend we had the pleasure of welcoming two great sports teams on the occasion of the Black Mountain trail.

The Black Mountain, in the heart of the Black Mountain, offers different levels of racing, to offer everyone an event that meets everyone's personal challenge.

From the hero race (1 km) for the little ones, to the 63 km Coupo Cambo race, there is something for everyone.

So that our heroes of the day are well prepared the morning of their departure, at La Grande Maison, our housekeeper prepares a suitable breakfast. Because it's not just the meal the night before to adapt.

We adapt of course to breakfast times, and yes breakfast is available for 4am, it's possible!

We share with you the recipes for these sports cakes, ultra easy to reproduce at home, established by Nicolas Aubineau (sports dietitian).

The sports cake (or energy cake) is a product used by many athletes before a race (marathon, triathlon, trail, cyclo, etc.).

How to eat a sports cake before a race?

For optimized assimilation and digestion, it is advisable to consume the energy cake at least 2 hours before the race. Nicolas Aubineau advises having breakfast 3 hours before the race and eating small pieces of sports cake up to 1h30 before the start. Then, stop at the solid for reasons of digestibility and therefore of transit for the most sensitive. The waiting or effort drink during the warm-up takes over.

If you want to go deeper into the subject, we recommend that you read the complete site on the subject.

In terms of recipes, here are the ones we offer when you stay with us at the dawn of an intense sports race.
