Super Power Bowl

Super Power Bowl

This Super Power Bowl nourishes your body on many levels. Ever wondered what to eat after a long work-out ? Well, this is it.  Recently, I have gotten into the habit of doing endurance work-outs on a rowing machine. I have noticed that I need to feed myself differently than after my usual yoga practice. First of all, I sweat more. Second, I burn more fuel. And I get dehydrated more quickly. Right after my work-out I drink some coconut juice to rehydrate. And then about 1 hour after my work-out I usually have what I call my Super Power Bowl. It basically contains the best of everything. I vary the ingredients but make sure it contains all the essential ingredients I need to restore my body. Eating the right foods can boost your recovery and your performance as an athlete.  This Super Bowl has it all. Essential Fatty Acids in the form of hemp oil, olive oil, walnuts and avocado. High-quality protein in the form of quinoa and chickpeas and an alkalinity boost from the arugula, lemon, beets and zucchini. It’s all you need after a long work-out.

  • 1 cup of quinoa
  • 1/2 lemon, juice
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
