10 Great Post-Bikram Breaky Or Lunch Ideas

If you're anything like me then food is probably the last thing on your mind as you leave the sweat box. It's enough to make it into the showers and clean clothes and maybe knock back a good half litre or so of water. But come 30 minutes later your body is telling a different tell. It wants food. It needs sustenance. And it better be now! If not sooner. Of course the last thing you want to do is be swayed by that urgent hunger and end up undoing all your good work with a pit-stop at 7-Eleven.

Here are 10 simple meals that you can whip up in no-time (or prepare earlier) to satisfy the growling beast that is your belly. These are perfect for breaky or lunch, but there's no reason why you can't eat them anytime!
  1. Organic or biodynamic yogurt with LSA (linseed, almond, sunflower mix; buy it at your health food store) and fresh berries
  2. Soft-boiled egg with spelt toast, avocado and extra-virgin olive oil
  3. Home-made bircher muesli with almond flakes, cinnamon and organic apple juice - get it soaking before you head off to class
  4. Banana or berry smoothie
  5. Freshly-squeezed veg-fruit juice with soft-boiled egg
  6. Rocket and orange salad with marinated lamb - I use balsamic, oil, lemon, sea salt, and any spices that I feel like on the day
  7. Spinach, tomato and almond salad with balsamic and grilled chicken
  8. Isagenix IsaLean Shake: organic protein, fats and carbohydrate
  9. Goats feta and spinach omelette with grilled leg ham
  10. Thai beef salad with fresh lime - keep it simple, just use beef, fresh coriander, spinach leaves, bean shoots and cucumber.

Food for Yoga. Food for Life.
