This Is What a Cycling Instructor Eats for Breakfast
We don’t need to tell you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. In this series, we’re asking some of Boston’s top doctors, fitness pros, and dietitians for a sneak peek into their kitchens, so we can see what’s on their breakfast table.
Claim to Fame: Fracalossi is the founder and general manager of the Handle Bar, an indoor cycling studio with locations in South Boston, Fenway, and Harvard Square. When she’s not running the business, she also hops in the saddle to teach.
What She Ate: Greek yogurt with mixed berries, granola, chia seeds, and honey, plus a cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese.
Why She Chose It: When you burn close to 1,000 calories a day teaching and taking classes, carbs are your friend. “The bagel is a perfect blend of comfort and calories,” Fracalossi says. Plus, “the yogurt bowl is chock full of protein, antioxidants, and calcium, and best of all, it is super quick to make.”
