PURE Maple syrup is a great quick energy – perfect for PRE WORKOUT! Find out Maple Syrup Benefits Here
They have offered to send the randomly chosen winner of the PRE WORKOUT #plantPOWER day a Pure Maple Syrup Prize pack! Includes: maple-themed tasting kit which includes all four grades of maple syrup, a maple tasting guide and their FIT MAPLE brochure with lots of great workout recipes. They also were nice enough to VEGAN-IZE their rice pudding recipe!
Plan ahead and eat 60-90 minutes before your workout. The goal is to include foods that are high in carbs, moderate in protein and low in fat and fiber. Fat is not a quick fuel source, and because fiber-containing foods take longer to digest, they make you feel full when exercising and are not recommended.
Maple rice pudding provides the perfect combination to give you the energy you need for your workout without weighing you down.
- 3 cups cooked rice
- 1/4 cup gluten free flour of choice
- 1 can (12 oz.) low-fat evaporated milk –
Vegan substitution: use instant dry soy milk powder – use twice as much instant dry soy milk powder to one serving of milk, or take ready-made soy milk (with only soy beans and water on the label) and use that in place of water for mixing one serving of instant dry soy milk powder.
- 1-1/2 cups skim milk – Vegan Substitution: plain almond milk/soy milk
- 2/3 cup pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until mixture comes to a boil. Remove from heat and cool. Serve warm or chilled, topped with fresh berries and a sprinkle of granola, if desired.
