Is to practice or not to eat – that is the question facing many practitioners from around the world. Of course, it is clear that to practice better in the morning on an empty stomach. But what if your class starts in 12 days? It is unlikely that you will not have cherished three hours before practice, then vigorously work out two hours and half an hour to refrain from eating for the fruits of the classroom learned. It turns out that the commercials have half a day to spend fasting. In this situation will suffer, and practice (which is sad) and the body (which will be exhausted).
We offer a healthy alternative: for one to two hours to eat a product from the list below.

Green smoothies not only will saturate before exercise, but it will help to flush toxins from the body and lose weight – with regular use, of course. In a blender beat any of the green vegetables and fruits, almond milk, nuts and Chia seeds or spirulina until smooth.
Toast with avocado. This is an easy and delicious snack. Avocado, of potassium even more than banana, and it’s a great source of fat and antioxidants. A piece of whole wheat bread put slices of avocado, lightly pour olive oil on top, sprinkle with pine nuts and oregano.
