What is the best Indian Pre and Post-workout meal?

A healthy bread and sambar would be good before a workout for some energy. Afterwards, protein of your choice is perfect, like paneer or channa saag.

I’m assuming this is Indian cuisine. Chickpeas are a staple in Indian food that I’m familiar with. They give me boosts of energy without feeling weighed down. Protein power! For a post workout meal, I’d settle for a well spiced, not too spicy, soothing coconut curry with chickpeas and lots of greens.

I am unsure of what the best Indian pre and post workout meal is, I am assuming it would be something filled with protein, perhaps some type of meat?

Pre workout meals should not be too heavy or rich, but at least something with carbs for easily accesible energy. It should also be balanced with protein. As such dhaal makes a great pre-workout meal because it is quite light, not too strong a taste and packed with healthy carbohydrates and protein from chickpeas. A small bit of fruit with peanut butter is also so yummy. Post work out, dhaal could also be good but it may also be nice to have something with a little added protein. Im not a fan of indian cuisine that much so i would generally prefer asian, like a salad with a nice dressing and chicken or tofu. Also a chilli con carne with vegan meat substitute is so yummy and satisfies cravings for something a bit more decadent. Its also always nice to have a reward like a bliss ball or a small part of a muesli bar. Protein drinks can also be a nice treat especially the botanika blends brand.

Mmm I love Indian food. Post workout: dal or a lassi. I tend not to eat preworkout but if I did, probably I’d eat some toasted naan

Not that familiar with Indian cuisine. But, post workout meals, not for the first 2 hours as you want your body to use stored fats and such (incase you don't have any fats left then eat lean proteins, like white meat, chicken breast for example, or vegetables (beans work well I heard, haven't tested that, if possible eat Greek yogurt or any yoghurt with a higher fat percentage)
Yoghurt and bananas are 100% okay pre workout food. Bananas give high energy levels quick and yoghurt is more difficult for the body to process, meaning it will give energy en proteins over the course of the workout. If you are on a vegetarian diet and animal products are no option, (soy)beans are your friend, if you take protein powder then take a bit before and after workout.
Hope it helps!

Pre workout – Generally I believe in having just water as Pre work out meal maybe add 5-6 soaked almonds along with it and start.

Post workout – again start with water maybe along with lemon slice in it. Generally I do my workouts in the morning so after water I have a heavy healthy breakfast such as 2 pcs of dates, 2 egg whites, sometimes upma, poha, idlis, etc. As what we say that we should eat as a king in the morning breakfast.

We need protein intake in any form after our workouts to keep us energetic and healthy.

It’s my observation which I am sharing with you.
