Designed for pre-workout, this higher-in-carb recipe uses the versatile Pearl Barley instead of regular white rice so you’re not just fueling your body before a workout, but you’re also enjoying the incredible benefits of this “supercarb”.
High in BOTH soluble and insoluble fiber, the Pearl Barley fulfills both functions: helping you feel fuller longer, at the same time is great for your digestive health. When researching on carb alternatives, we found studies that show how Pearl Barley helps reduce cholesterol and lowers blood sugar levels too. Of course we couldn’t miss out on this perfect carb.
So here it is, in a Thai recipe that we’ve all grown familiar with.
