Have you ever laid down in savasana, proud of yourself for getting on the mat that day, ready to relax & to let your mind go, only to be distracted by the low, incessant growl of your rumbling tummy?
Been there, done that. So often in fact that I’ve realized the best way to satiate my hunger after class is with a big bowl of protein, grains & vegetables! After an intense workout (like yoga!), protein is necessary to help your muscles repair, while grains with a high fiber content aid in digestion & help to provide that feeling of ‘fullness.’ Vegetables provide essential vitamins & minerals to keep your body healthy, strong & moving on your mat!
