I have gotten into hot yoga recently but after my morning classes im finding I need a bit of a energy boost. Can you recommend what are good energy or protein bars to eat? Or any other foods?

Comment by Miss_Slovak — June 25, 2011 @ 7:57 am

Hi Miss Slovak,
After a morning class, I like to eat some toast with peanut butter and banana. The peanut butter gives me that protein boost to get me through the morning, and the toast and banana keep me full.
