What to Eat After Yoga

Yoga Class Getting You Home Late? 4 Ideas For Quick, Healthy Dinners

For 9-to-5ers, taking a yoga class after work can result in eating a late dinner. If you're eating closer to bedtime, then cut back on heavy meat and dairy to help ease digestion, and prep meals in advance to make the process of cooking a quick one. With some advice from a few Ayurveda and nutrition experts, here are four ideas for quick and healthy suppers to make after yoga.

Homemade Soup

A homemade soup is often as easy as throwing ingredients together into a pot. Cook broth in advance to always have the makings of a soup ready to go, but if you're crunched for time, then use a low-sodium, store-bought version. This recipe for ginger-carrot soup is high in vitamin A, vitamin C, and manganese, which aids in digestion, plus it offers hydration after a sweaty yoga session!

Veggie-Packed Wraps

Replacing a meat-heavy sandwich with a lighter veggie wrap can be easier on the digestive system to help prevent you from feeling weighed down after yoga. These vegan spiral wraps from Happy Healthy Life offer vibrant color, creamy hummus, and serious veggie power.

Sautéed Greens

A big bowl of greens is filling, nutrient-rich, and not time-consuming to prepare; this Indian-spiced chard takes less than 30 minutes to cook, and the tofu offers plenty of that much-needed protein.

Chickpea Quiche

Cook up a crustless Mexican chickpea quiche spiced with cumin, onion, and peppers ahead of time, and cut yourself a slice as soon as you get home. This recipe only get better after a day or two, so your dinner won't feel like leftovers.
