Most of us often wonder about the foods to eat before yoga/workout/walk. Especially, if you are a beginner, it is better to know what works and what doesn't work as far as diet before your workout class is concerned.
Here is a list:
You can consume juices that contain fruits or vegetables as a part of your diet. You can get rid of the toxins in your body with the help of these juices. Also, you can feel refreshed after consuming them. Try to go for cucumber, celery, amla, aloe vera or spinach in your juices.
Bananas are rich in fibre and Potassium. Also, they are gentle on your stomach and they give you energy for your yoga practice. Consume 2 bananas at least an hour before your practice.
The best thing about apples is that they contain some amount of sugar which can energise you a bit. They also supply fibre and vitamins. They can also hydrate you a bit which is important before a workout.
Natural sugars are always preferable over other forms of sugar. Raisins can energise you before the yoga class with their natural sweetness.
If you wish to keep it simple, but healthy, eat a few almonds before your yoga class. Apart from supplying your body with Magnesium and Potassium, they also supply vitamins and ensure that your stamina levels stay high.
They hydrate you and also energise you before you get ready for your yoga class. Enjoy a water melon which helps you enjoy your workout.
If you want some snack that contains healthy carbs before your practice session, choose oatmeal. It is easily digestible and a healthy carb-source.
If you are not lactose intolerant, try a bowl of yogurt with fresh fruits before workout. It cools down your system and also provides some proteins to your system.
Apricots, dried ones, act as energizers before your yoga workout. You can carry them easily in your pocket if you are heading somewhere else for your practice.
