Eggs with maple syrup? As well as tasting delicious, maple syrup boosts the amount of carbohydrates in the wrap and therefore makes it a great meal choice before physical activity. This wrap is higher in protein and fat than many pre-workout foods. Give yourself at least an hour or an hour and a half for the food to properly digest before an intense session.

More about Maple

Maple syrup comes in four classifications, according to colour and taste.

At the start of sugaring season, syrup is generally clear, with a lightly sweet taste. It becomes darker and caramelized as the season goes on.

An unopened can of maple syrup keeps for many years.

Once the can is opened, syrup should be kept in an airtight container in a cool place.

100% pure maple butter contains no butter or dairy.

Like all 100% pure maple products, maple butter comes from the sap of the maple tree… and that’s all.
