I’ve often wondered what’s best to eat and drink before and after yoga classes. Practising yoga first thing in the morning means I’ve not eaten beforehand, which works well for me. I then get stuck into muesli, porridge, nuts and fresh fruit to replenish energy levels especially after an intense Fiji class! If I do a lunchtime class at work, I’ll eat things beforehand flapjacks with no added sugar using this fantastic and easy recipe. I just add in whatever dried fruit I have to oats, vegetable oil and bananas.
I’ll then load up on things like tuna, pasta, pesto but are these the best foods to eat post yoga and how soon after the class is it preferable to eat?
I would love to hear others’ ideas on foods that work for you. If you’ve recipes to share all the better.
