This has quickly become my favorite post-workout meal. It’s full of healthy fats, probiotics, protein, veggies and glucose. Kimchi is fermented cabbage and spices and it’s the national dish of Korea. Some Korean homes even have a separate fridge just to store kimchi. I learned that on House Hunters International.

It’s quick and easy to prepare after a workout too. At the beginning of each week I make a batch of white rice (you can read about why I eat white rice here) so this really only takes a few minutes to throw together.

Kimchi Fried Rice Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup white rice
  • 1/2 cup kimchi (Buy kimchi HERE)
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil (THIS coconut oil has no coconut taste)
  • 2 eggs
  • optional: green onion


  1. Sautee the onion in 1 tbsp of fat.
  2. Once it’s soft, add the garlic, kimchi and rice.
  3. Cook until warm.
  4. Serve with two fried eggs.
  5. Top with chopped green onion, if using.

Super easy, so delicious and perfect after a workout.

      Free weights, lots of squats, ab workouts. Nothing complicated.

  1. Sounds yummy! Even though I’ve only had kimchi a couple times I love it (love sauerkraut too).
    Anyway, you wrote, “you can read about why I eat white rice here” but there isn’t a link to click on.
