Hello my fit-minded friends!  Working in the world of fitness, I get lots of questions about the optimal way to energize before a workout.  And while there is no one-size-fits-all approach, I do recommend most to do the following before hitting a 60+ minute yoga flow: 

(1) HYDRATE
AND
(2) EAT A CARBOHYDRATE-RICH SNACK

Even if you’re not someone who typically sweats up a storm, drinking plenty of fluids before hand can help you avoid dehydration during and after your workout.  (Water is just so wonderful!)

  • just under 200 calories
  • contains tons of heart-healthy MUFAs & PUFAs
  • has minuscule amounts of sodium (a biggie for me!)
  • is high in fibes! (that’s fiber ;))
  • and even has a few grams of protein

It’s the perfect little portable pre-yoga snack that keeps me going from start to shavasana!
