Healthy snacks for sporty people

Dear world-wide audience,

Sri Lanka is slowly heating up, that is humidity is hitting in. Occasional heavy rainfalls cool down the air nicely for a good night's sleep, which makes you jump out of bed in the morning hitting the treadmill or the Yoga room. Or both. Or the mat with your favorite Pilates DVD. 
Another very important contributor to a good night's sleep obviously is what you had for dinner. In all those years since I am taking extreme care of my nutrition I became more and more sensitive to this and during my exercise, which I tend to do before breakfast, I always feel the - positive or negative - impact of what I had as a last meal. 

This morning doing Yoga on a completely empty stomach (dinner cancelling the night before and breakfast only after Yoga) felt absolutely great. Even my husband had to admit that. This does not mean that you should cancel your dinner every night, but 1 or 2 times a week don't do any harm, in fact, it allows your own inner wellness center to work just on your beauty and health overnight without wasting any energy on the digestion of a heavy meal. 



When should I eat last time then if I cancel my dinner? I was a bit extreme yesterday, I did not have anything else after my lunch at 2PM, just a big glass of tomato juice and lots of water and herbal teas. For who can handle it, that works very well.

My better half for example cannot handle it as he will not shut an eye in the night on such an empty stomach.
