I am a total foodie. So when I try to tighten my diet reins, I eliminate most things that won’t help me reach my goals, track my diet in a calorie counter app, and follow macros. I know some of you are rolling your eyes at macros, but I like numbers and it makes me feel like I am in control.
However just because I may be a little more strict does not mean I don’t make meals I find delicious. Today I made a post workout favorite of mine and decided to share it with you all!
3C of water
3C basmati rice
1C almond milk/coconut milk
1 Tbl. vanilla extract
1-2 Tbl cinnamon (depending on how much you like!)
stevia to taste
Add rice and water to a pot and add a pinch of salt if you’d like. Once water comes to a boil, turn down the heat to simmer and cover with a lid. Once rice is cooked to your liking, add the almond milk. The rice will most likely soak up all the milk. Add the cinnamon and stevia. Stir well to combine.
**I also added a mashed banana to a cup of rice for my post workout snack today–it was amazing 😉 I have also considered adding raisins to make it more similar to rice pudding but I haven’t gotten that far.
