    For us simple people, 1 decilitre = 100ml! :-)

    Waffle recipe please! Yum!

    • Jessi Braverman

      We’ve passed along the request!

    • Annie.

      :D Yes, please!

    Great article! Will definitely be trying these recipes. Surprised at the inclusion of Agave in all her recipes. For those who care about the natural/unprocessed side of things, agave is highly processed and its popularity is largely a triumph of marketing. Maple syrup and honey both have less fructose and higher nutritional values. Even coconut sugar has a higher nutritional content…

  • tried the sky rice cake recipe – tasted horrid, bland bland bland – will have to try these ones.

    I’ve become a big fan of The Feedzone Cookbook and Feedzone Portables of Allen Lim and Biju Thomas: I love making rice cakes (scrambled egg, Cashews and Bacon or Raspberry and Mint, for example). Also, I do a lot of muffins, muesli bars and so on. It’s really motivating and also, in my opinion, healthy to have something “real”, at least while training or before and after races.

    Thanks for the recipes!

    I’d love, however, to have the recipe for the waffles shown above, too. That’d be great as I still haven’t got a good recipe (but the real Belgian one which might be a bit too much).

    PS: What exaclty is a “swanny”? I stumbled over the expression several times in various articles, and can imagine it might be some sort of support person. But is there a special connotation to it? And where does the word stem from?

      Hi Annie –

      You’re not the first person to ask for that waffle recipe. We’ve passed along the request to Emilie, and we’ll see what we can do for you!

      As for “swanny” it’s slang for “soigneur” (pronounced “swan-year”) and comes from the “the one who provides care” in French. The role of a soigneur is to look after the riders in terms of massage, food, drinks, clothing, etc. Like a mechanic, a soigneur works from the very start of the day until the very end of the day in a behind-the-scenes role.

    tried the rice cake recipe. it didn’t work well. the rice cake is really soft, hard to eat while riding. if you don’t like it you can manage to transform it into a creamy rice. add the rice cake in a bowl with milk, place into the microwave, add some brown sugar, mix together and done. you saved your 500gr of rice cake. :)
