Creamy and Spicy Brown Rice Cereal

I don’t know about you but I must get in some carbs before my workout or I might as well not even bother. I mean I would have so little energy that it would be impossible to have an effective workout. Nausea and headaches are two of my low energy symptoms. Since carbohydrates are our # 1 glycogen fuel source, I usually reach for oatmeal, toast or rice cakes. After a while that can get pretty boring so I was excited to try this recipe from my TapOut XT, MMA nutrition guide (pg 42).

 

I train in the wee hours of the morning (5am) before a long day’s work. When I get up at 4am I am reaching for fuel for my workout. This breakfast is high protein and complex carbs that is also perfect for my gluten intolerance. There was just one thing. You know me I changed it just a tad. I added a tsp of vanilla extract and drained the water from the cooked rice. I may just try some nutmeg or pumpkin spice next time.

The main ingredients are:

Low – 0 fat milk

 Quick cooking brown rice

Diced Apples

Plain Greek Yogurt

Mix it along with the spices.
