Superfoods & Yoga - Why we love BOTH!
As much as we love eating ice cream and Oreos, it's time for a detox. But how can you possibly go about this when there are so many diets and cleanses out there? We were confused too… until we discovered superfoods.
If you look at the history of both Superfoods and Yoga you'll discover that there's more to these two practices than just exercise and nutrition! These two have more in common than you think, and when used together - is the ultimate combo!
Superfoods are the new black.
We love them for a lot of reasons. First up, they're high in antioxidants, which increases blood flow throughout the body—so you can expect more energy and fewer aches and pains. They're also good sources of fiber and protein, which means they'll keep you fuller longer, and help with digestion.
But probably our favorite thing about super foods is that they taste just as good as they are for you! They're great for natural detoxification because they help break down toxins in the body so they can be flushed out. They also contain phytochemicals that help boost your immune system and protect against disease.
And if all of that isn't enough to make you want to try some out, we've got one more thing: superfoods are just plain fun to eat! How often do you get to eat something delicious while getting healthy?
So if you've been thinking about upping your intake of superfoods but haven't quite made it there yet… well then maybe now's the time!
Want To Feel More Energized and Less Stressed?
Superfoods have a lot going for them. First up, they're high in antioxidants, which increases blood flow throughout the body—so you can expect more energy and fewer aches and pains. They're also good sources of fiber and protein, which means they'll keep you fuller longer, and help with digestion.
Take superfoods like blueberries or spinach—they're high in antioxidants, which increases blood flow throughout the body. That means that you'll feel better after your workout because your blood is flowing faster and more efficiently throughout your body.
Superfoods are also good source of fiber and protein, which help with natural detoxification (especially when combined with yoga). And who doesn't want to feel like their body is detoxing on a regular basis? 🙋🏽♀️
They also contain phytochemicals that help boost your immune system and protect against disease.

How Does This All Relate Back to Yoga??
We're not saying that you should take antioxidants instead of eating them, because we all know that eating your fruits and veggies is the best way to get some of those good-for-you vitamins and minerals into your system. But if you want to get a boost before or after class, there are a lot of antioxidants found in superfoods—like blueberries, acai berries, and chia seeds—and antioxidants have been said to improve energy production, decrease inflammation (which helps recover your muscles from that hot yoga class 🔥), decrease blood pressure, strengthen your immunity and so much more!
So next time you’re wondering what to eat before or after that yoga class, maybe consider adding an antioxidant-rich food into the mix. You might be surprised by how much better it makes you feel both during and after your practice!
