Rice is great if you’re really hungry and want to eat two thousand of something.

– Mitch Hedberg

Wild rice is a truly American cuisine.  A nutritious seed of a water grass plant that can only be harvested once a year, this has been a staple of the athlete’s cuisine beginning with the Native Americans.

Wild rice contains twice as much protein as brown rice. It is very rich in antioxidants, containing up to 30 times more than white rice!

Empty calories are a waste, get the most health for your buck by eating wild rice.  When you are pushing yourself to extremes, you will want every last bit of nutrients in your food.  You’ll need it.
