We continue our Cycling Nutrition Tips series as Team Sky sports nutritionist Nigel Mitchell talks us through why you should be adding nuts and seeds to your breakfast.

Nutritional Benefits

Seeds are high in fiber, vitamin E, monounsaturated fats, protein, iron, folic acid and zinc whilst goji berries contain all essential amino acids, have the highest concentration of protein of any fruit and are loaded with vitamin C, calcium, zinc, selenium and a whopping 15 times the amount of iron found in spinach.

If you can get good quality fresh produce then blueberries and strawberries are high in antioxidants that keep us health by fighting disease-inducing free radicals in our body.
