Sports Recipes – 1 Breakfast.


Powerlifter and Personal Trainer Charlie Shotton-Gale  of SG Fitness has a recipe collection for those with a healthier appetite.

Sportswindon have been given permission to reproduce some and this is the first in a series.

I’ve have been playing with quick and simple breakfast receipes and have found a few that, although may see a bit strange, are really delicious.

3 minute Orange and Ginger Oats.

Mix the 4 tablespoons of oats, 200ml orange juice, a chopped kiwi (skinned if you would prefer) and some shaved ginger. Let it soak for 2+ minutes for the oats to soften.

Eh voila!

I know I know “but oats are creamy” and “orange juice and oats do NOT go together”, but just try it! You never know.

I have tried it without ginger and with dried fruit instead, also delicious.

My next stop is to try with some hazlenuts in. Scrummy!


I have now tried it with different fruits and added nuts, here is my edited version.

2 handfuls of oats

enough orange juice to cover them, leave to soak for at least 5 mins (I leave and walk the dog for an hour).

Boil the kettle and soak a handful of raw nuts in the boiled water for at least 5 mins.

I have previously cooked blackberrys and apple together (as it’s summer time and they are free!), mix in 1-2 tablespoons

grate a bit of ginger.

mix in the drained nuts.


So easy and it has at least 2 portions of your 5 a day, slow releasing energy and good fats and protein. What more do you need?!
