The Top 10 Clean Foods to Keep on Hand for Healthy Pre-Workout Eats. Pre-workout eats mean serious business — you’ve got iron to pump, miles to run (or walk!)
, yoga strength-training poses to do, and high intensity exercises to activate all those hard-earned muscles — no wimpy bowl of sugary cereal or a donut is going to cut it. And skipping your pre-workout meal is even worse. Your body needs to be given fuel to produce energy and without quality fuel, your metabolism gets the message it needs to slow down to preserve what calories you do have left in your body or worse, try to eat away at your muscles when it runs on empty. This doesn’t just lead to a damaged metabolism, but also wreaks havoc on your blood sugar levels and ruins your performance, along with muscle maintenance.
So give your body what it needs and your metabolism and workouts will both benefit immensely. Not Your Regular Channa Masala – An Authentic Punjabi Version [Vegan, Gluten-Free] Are you a fan of Channa Masala?

Ginger. 10 Frugal Vegan Meals You Can Make Out of Pantry Goods. Food budgets might not be fun to deal with, but they certainly do allow us to be more creative, resourceful, and can even end up creating some new favorite meals.
One way to make yourself more frugal is to make it a direct point to use up what you have before buying more. We know … it’s really hard to resist buying more of a food you love when you run out, but turn to your pantry before you rush off to the store once and awhile. While you may think to yourself, “Oh, I have no food, I should go to the store,” there’s likely a wide variety of goodies in your cupboards that would make the perfect breakfast, lunch, or dinner with minimal ingredients. And don’t negate pantry foods to less healthy either; they can actually be just as nutritious for you and many of them are even more filling than some other foods we might be eating.
