Great Pre-Yoga Foods To Eat

Although it’s normal to do yoga on an empty stomach, it’s actually more beneficial if you drink fluids and eat snacks that keep your body hydrated and well nourished! Snacks and fluids should generally be consumed 30 minutes before class starts. Another tip is that you should not have a large meal before class, unless it’s been more than 3 hours. Here are the foods that are great to eat before yoga:

  • Bananas
    • Great source of potassium and magnesium, contains a low level of fiber
    • Prevents bloating, cramps, and helps with fluid balance
  • Almonds (palm full)
    • Contains large amounts of vitamin E, potassium, and magnesium
    • Assists in helping you keep your energy through yoga movements
  • Juice (4 ounces)
    • Contains a simple carbohydrate  (Do not take if you have GERD)
    • Gives you a quick boost in energy
  • Bar
    • Decent amount of carbohydrates and fiber
    • Ex. Clif Z bar, kid version
  • Cereal (low fat, with either low-fat dairy milk, soy, or unsweetened almond)
    • Ex. Cascadian Farms Fruitful O’s
