    i also bought an omega juicer and we've been drinking beet juice nearly every day.

    gonna try those flourless chocolate muffin things too sometime. But i'm a pretty poor baker so i don't have high hopes.

    White rice is a pretty clean source of glucose, very few downsides to using it as an athlete. Again, a compromise to make if you want to take the performance to the next level.

    Lim's book is good and I agree you shouldn't sweat the rice, although I stick to tubers. Tastier too.

    oooh but i did buy the calrose rice. And the other day I had this odd craving for buttered rice. Oh.Yes. Rice was one of the harder things for me to give up, along with corn tortillas.

    Even tho i try to ride my bike pretty regularly and i do race, i don't really see myself as an "athlete". All the rice in that book looks fine for guys riding at pro-level, 5 hrs per day, but i seem to be doing fine w/o the rice.

    but i may try making those bars this weekend.

    I don't have experience with endurance competition like that, but I can say that a watermelon is my favorite thing on a long, hot day. I naturally can sit down with it and cut it open. It hydrates, adds plenty of calories, and tastes great. If this isn't an option for you, maybe just go for a sports drink?
