#PLANTPOWERED- QUICK TIPS TO BECOMING A VEGGIE WARRIOR W/ NUTRASUMMA HEALTHLETE REDD
Take it with a Grain of Barley
Rice: One of the most popular choices in the plant-powered Healthlete’s nutrition arsenal, but have you ever wandered down the aisle of the bulk bins or the shelves surrounding it?
If not… you should!!
Barley: A hearty alternative to rice. It contains higher amounts of fiber than in rice and a hefty amount of muscle building protein! In fact, just a half a cup hulled barley packs 12g of protein.
Its nutty flavor is a great pairing to many savory veggies, and can even be teamed up with the sweetness of fruits.
Cooking this grain is much like cooking rice. 1 cup barley to 3 cups water.
Its texture is soft and fluffy when finished, leaving your taste buds craving more! Another neat fact about this grain is it can be frozen after cooking and used at a later date.
