What’s your yoga routine? On International Yoga Day, add one more step to it: a deliciously nutritious pre-yoga bite!
On June 21st, as we celebrate this globally-beloved pastime, fuel up with a meal that’s light enough to be enjoyed before yoga—and powerful enough to get you through even the most intense poses. Take a look at our top pre-yoga picks below!
Protein Packed Avocado Toast
As part of our Valley Seasonal Fresh Picks menu, this delicious (and colorful) pick is sure to nourish and energize, without weighing you down. Complex carbohydrates are featured heavily here in the form of whole-grain toast and a black bean spread, while the chunky avocado delivers flavor and, of course, a blast of protein that will help keep you going. That’s important when it comes to yoga—though it looks simple and relaxing, it can actually take a lot of muscle strength and endurance to maintain difficult poses! For that, you’ll want a dependable meal option that won’t let you down halfway through your session.
Healthy Start Omelet
If you love a good omelet, but want to try a lighter option on days when you do yoga, try our Healthy Start Omelet. It has lean protein in the form of turkey and egg whites, and additional nutrition from baby spinach and tomatoes. It’s light but—as you’ll be sure to find out—incredibly satisfying, just what you need and nothing you don’t.
Our Housemade Granola is another great example of complex carbs served up in a delicious way. The dried cranberries and whole grain oats will provide energy without a crash—helping you avoid mid-yoga yawns—while the addition of brown sugar, coconut, nutmeg and more will satisfy your taste buds with ease.
RW&B Fruit Bowl
There is of course something to be said for keeping it simple. Not too hungry, but want a quick bite before yoga? Our deliciously sweet RW&B Fruit Bowl features the colors of the flag in the form of strawberries, bananas, and blueberries! Each fruit possesses nutrients that you can feel good about, especially the muscle-boosting power of bananas’ potassium, which is sure to come in handy as you try more complex poses.
Who says veggies don’t have protein? The veggie wrap is the perfect example of a light menu option that, despite not having meat, excels at providing energy and protein-powered fuel. Portabella mushrooms, fresh sprouts, and other wholesome ingredients make this a refreshing spin on your typical wrap, one that’s packed with the vitamins and nutrients you crave (and a great taste to boot!).
We hope that today’s blog helps you find your perfect pre-yoga fuel. Treat yourself to something as delicious as it is good for you on the mat!
