Cooking Tip

The recipe works well with a variety of roasted seasonal vegetables. Choose any of your favorite spice mixes to change up the flavor! Save extra rice, beans, and veggies for future meals, or prep several burritos for grab & go meals throughout the week. After a hard training day, increase the portion of rice to help replete glycogen stores. Make it vegan by replacing chicken with tempeh or tofu!


Performance Fact

The fiber in whole grains helps to increase satiety (fullness), maintain gut health, improve immune function and promote regularity. Additionally, whole grains are an excellent source of magnesium, a mineral that plays a significant role in muscle contraction, bone health, blood pressure regulation and energy production. Grilled chicken is high in branched chain amino acids (BCAA) that help muscles to repair and grow.
