I’ve got a solution for your leftover rice!
And it’s pretty much dessert that you can have for breakfast, lunch, whenever!
Oh and did I mention it has 12 grams of protein per serving?
Plus it keeps perfectly good food out of the landfill which is good for our wallets and the planet. That’s what I call a win-win!
- Per serving, this recipe packs 110 g of carbs, 13 g of protein, and 9 g of fat, and 4 g of fiber.
- Pre-workout: have at least 2 hours before your session to give you enough time to digest.
- Post-workout: ideally you’d have another 10 grams of protein to get to the 3-4:1 carb to protein ratio that’s ideal for post-climbing fueling and eat within 1-2 hours.
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 1.5 cups milk, divided
- ⅔ cup maple syrup (or sugar to taste, up to you!)
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon butter or margarine
