4Carrots, hummus, and crackers
The trio will give you what you need after going hard in a lunch time sesh.
Eating leafy greens after a lunch time yoga class almost seems like a no brainer! Throw in your favorite veggies and beans, a low sodium dressing, and a hefty slice of avocado, and you’ll have an entire meal to fuel for the rest of the afternoon!
6Whole wheat toast and chocolate peanut butter spread
Sweet and filling, this post-workout has been recommended by nutritionists to eat after an afternoon class. It’s super light, and won’t stuff you since your body will still probably be digesting the lunch you ate previously.
7Salsa and chips
This snack is ideal after an afternoon workout because it’s just the right size to fuel you, and not ruin your appetite for dinner.
Who wouldn’t want to have a piece of this goodness after a yoga sesh later in the evening? We certainly would!
