Rice Variations For Athletes: The 4 Best Post-Workout Meals With Rice

No other food is so versatile in the kitchen – and at the same time an ideal source of energy after training. The 4 best post-workout recipes with rice

Rice is precisely the right fuel for athletes. It contains little fat, which is a burden on the stomach, but many complex carbohydrates, which provide the body with long-term energy. Rice also contains many B vitamins, which are essential for energy metabolism.

Incidentally, unpeeled brown rice is particularly rich in vitamins and nutrients. The rice cooks longer but contains many times more fiber and minerals. Whole grain rice also has a higher fat content, around half of which consists of polyunsaturated fatty acids, suitable for the brain and cells.
