Kornspitz "Morning Dew"
Apart from a daily Kornspitz, what is the most important ingredient in a healthy athlete’s life? That’s right, sleep! During intense training phases, the body needs its 12 hours a day. So, one can well imagine that, as days become shorter, time becomes an even more precious commodity. Of course, it is still important to eat something decent, but without spending too much time cooking.
And that brings us right back to Kornspitz. I already loved this bread roll as a young child, and now I love it all the more, knowing that it also supports me in sport.
This Kornspitz is my particular favourite, because it’s not only quick and easy to prepare but also has everything I need for a good start to the day. Apart from that, it also tastes absolutely delicious.
There’s no real recipe here. Just think of your favourite muesli and imagine it on a Kornspitz. Okay, perhaps you shouldn’t make your Kornspitz with milk but, other than that, it’s almost 1:1. For my base, I always start with curd cheese and a bit of yoghurt, to which I add honey and lemon zest. When I feel like it, I also mash some banana into the mixture. Banana is always popular with us athletes.
So, that’s the base. What you add on top is entirely up to your taste. I almost always have a bit of fresh fruit, nuts and dried fruit in and on my “muesli” – and, of course, flakes, otherwise it really wouldn’t be muesli. For a bit of extra power, I might add chia seeds or flower pollen. Remember not to expect miracles from the “superfoods” though – real results only come from training. Every now and then, I also find chocolate in my muesli, but I make it “disappear” immediately.
I am very fortunate that, when I am at home, my mom takes over the morning preparations and I can still sleep for a few minutes longer. Then I quite often eat in the car with my dad, on the way to a competition or training. There’s usually enough time during breakfast to go over the plans for the day and listen to a little music.
My motto for this Kornspitz is “Fast-Food-Deluxe” – I make it fast, and it makes me fast!!
Enjoy your meal!
