Dr. Allen Lim and Skratch Labs are largely responsible for cyclists adopting rice, as a staple, instead of pasta. In an attempt to stimulate taste buds and nourish fatigued cyclists, enter fried rice.
- Before beginning to cook, leftovers are ideal for stir fry recipes. Therefore, keep a well-stocked refrigerator.
- While heating a pan, with a small amount of olive oil, begin to assemble all of your stir fry ingredients. With a pan warming on medium/high heat, the process will move quickly. A hot pan is necessary for stir fry creations.
|A little olive oil goes a long way.|
- With a warm pan, spread the olive oil.
- Next, add a generous amount of rice. For this creation, I utilized brown jasmine rice.
- After adding the rice, include soy sauce and hot sauce for taste. With rice, soy sauce, and hot sauce mixed in a warm pan, shuffle the solution to one side of the pan.
- With one side of the pan free, scramble eggs.
|Half and half.|
- With scrambled eggs, consider adding crushed pepper or seasoning salt.
- After the eggs are well-cooked and no longer runny, mix the rice and eggs together.
- Briefly join the rice and eggs, before moving contents to an eating bowl.
- Afterwards, consider adding soft vegetables. Harder vegetables can be mixed and warmed, while the pan is still hot.
- On this occasion, fresh salsa and avocado provided the final touches.
What's in a meal?
- With a hefty stir fry meal, consider that a plethora of calories are included. However, personal customization allows for the inclusion of many food groups.
- Brown jasmine rice = carbohydrates with a low glycemic index, or long lasting fuel.
- Soy sauce and hot sauce = sodium, to replenish stores lost while riding.
- Egg = protein.
- Salsa = anti-inflammatory agents, to aid in recovery.
- Avocado = healthy fats.
Now, go on an adventure and munch on your personal fried rice creation afterwards! Enjoy.
