In honor of this weekend’s Vancouver Marathon – which Vega is attending
– today’s recipe is all about recovery. After a race or intense training session, optimize recovery by having a snack within the first 45 minutes. Choose one that is easily digestible and consists mostly of simple carbohydrates. After you’ve pushed yourself, your body is too tired to work at heavy digestion—refuel it with liquid or near-liquid snacks, like whole-food puddings or a recovery drink.
This recover pudding is ease to make, easy to store and delicious.
