Today in our biohacking blog we have prepared a recipe native to Hawaii. It's a practical, nutritious and delicious dish to have for lunch or dinner, either at home or at the office, gym or wherever you like.
The carbs in the rice have a high glycemic index and are perfect to replenish muscle glycogen levels after an intense session. On the other hand, it is also possible to have it before training, but in this case, we suggest replacing white rice with brown rice or quinoa to keep your energy levels smooth and steady.
Another advantage is that it will not take more than 10 minutes to prepare it, besides most of the ingredients are easy to find in almost any local market or supermarket, except for Yuzu juice or Mirin for which you may have to go to Whole Foods or such. If you just can't find the yuzu, we suggest you replace it with 50% orange juice and 50% lime juice, so you'll get as close as possible to the original flavor.
