7 Foods to Fuel Your Yoga Practice

Staying focused on an empty stomach is difficult, even for the most committed yogis. Here are 7 great ways to fuel up before your next practice.

1. Low-fat Yogurt

Yogurt is high in carbs and low in fat—the perfect snack. Sprinkle with some almonds or mix with chia seeds for extra protein.

2. Banana

The simple sugars will give you a boost of energy and the potassium will help prevent muscle cramps.

3. Nuts

Nuts are high in protein and healthy fats that will help you stay full without a big meal to weigh you down.

5. Tea with Milk & Honey

This snack won’t leave you feeling full, but it will provide enough calories to get you through your practice, plus an added pick-me-up from the caffeine.

High in nutrients and good-for-you fats, avocados are a great pre-practice snack. Just grab a spoon and enjoy!

7. Dark Chocolate
