The 4 Best Foods to Eat Before Exercising

August 29, 2014 5:07 pm

Whether you’re an avid cyclist or a bona fide yogi, it’s important to eat the proper foods before any type of workout. Here are a few of the best foods to eat before exercising to keep your body energized and to help build muscle.

  1. Whole-wheat bread. Complex carbs like whole wheat take a longer time for your body to burn, so they provide you with energy for a lot longer than simple carbs. Try eating a whole-wheat bagel with some organic jam or honey to get the fuel that you need for your workout.
  2. Greek yogurt. Greek yogurt is packed full of protein, and it has much less sugar than flavored yogurts. This simple, plain yogurt is also very easy to digest, which makes it the perfect snack before a high-intensity cardio exercise.
  3. Chicken or other lean meats. Lean meats are another great source of protein, and they are much lower in fat than meats like beef or pork. Try some grilled chicken with a side of vegetables or healthy brown rice.
  4. Caffeine. It may seem strange, but sipping a small cup of coffee before a workout can provide you with that added boost of energy that you need to get motivated. Caffeine is also proven to reduce muscle soreness after a workout.

Satis Bistro: Inventive Dishes in Jersey City

August 20, 2014 4:03 pm

Satis Bistro Cafe Wine Bar in Jersey City combines fine European-inspired dining with a comparatively casual setting, all in one intimate little corner restaurant with seating both indoors and outdoors.

Visit and you can begin your meal with an appetizer like the candied spiced almonds, served with chipped manchego cheese, or pork rilette in a Dijon caraway aioli. Cheese plates are available, too, prepared to complement the wine. Though the menu contains only a handful of entrees, almost everything is well-regarded, and there are vegetarian options including a unique cauliflower steak dish for those with meat-free diets. Rounding the menu out are a number of sweet desserts like gelato.
