30 Jun What to eat before class
Eat enough so that you feel energised and strong or overeat and feel heavy and nauseated. It’s a fine line that many of us accidentally cross before heading to a RIDE class. Don’t worry boo, we’ve got you.
To avoid stomach cramps and to optimise your energy levels, eat 1-1.5 hours before your RIDE class. Remember to ride your body needs protein and carbs and to recover your body needs potassium, magnesium and vitamin C.
Rice mixed with your favourite protein or vegetables is a great option. With microwave rice- it’s also a simple option that can be whipped up with only 2 minutes notice!
If you’re short on time, grab a banana and some almond butter; the combo is divine AND it provides you enough carbs to support you during the RIDE and enough potassium to keep any cramps at bay. And for the almond butter? Well damn it tastes good, but it also provides added protein to aid with muscle recovery.
