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.
