Kimchi rice has quickly become my favorite post-workout meal.

It’s full of healthy fats, probiotics, protein, veggies, and glucose. Kimchi is fermented cabbage and spices and it’s the national dish of Korea. Some Korean homes even have a separate fridge just to store kimchi. I learned that on House Hunters International.

It’s quick and easy to prepare for a post-workout recovery, too. At the beginning of each week I make a batch of white rice (you can read about why I eat white rice here) so this really only takes a few minutes to throw together.

      Free weights, lots of squats, ab workouts. Nothing complicated.

  1. Sounds yummy! Even though I’ve only had kimchi a couple times I love it (love sauerkraut too).
    Anyway, you wrote, “you can read about why I eat white rice here” but there isn’t a link to click on.
