Thanksgiving Memories

I've included a few pics taken over the Thanksgiving weekend. The first photo is of my nephew, Ethan, followed by a photo of his brother, Williams, next is a pic of their sister, Anika. At the bottom is a shot of my two girls, Chelsea and Kelsey, passed out post-turkey!

Monday consisted of a very long, traffic filled drive home. Thank goodness I had my cooler with me prepared for the ride.

Here's what I munched on that day.

Monday:

Breakfast:
Hot oatmeal with flaxseed (flax is loaded with healthy fats)
5 egg whites, 1 yolk
4 fish oil capsules (this is for healthy fats)
Plenty of water
Black coffee

Mid Morning:
Small apple
3 egg whites
Handful unsalted nuts (these contain healthy fats)

Lunch:
Chicken breast, green salad, 1/2 baked potato
Water
Coffee

Mid afternoon:
Unsalted almonds (healthy fats)
Carrot sticks
Celery sticks
Small apple
Water


Dinner: we had breakfast for dinner, which is a favorite of mine especially after long car rides when I don't feel like cooking
Scrambled egg whites with tomato, spinach and basil
Dry Ezekiel toast
Water





Yesterday I spent the day at home catching up on emails, work, and stocking the fridge for the week. I also took a few minutes in the evening to throw together a delicious salsa. Food variety is so limited during competition prep that I have to spice it up where and however I can.

Tuesday:

Breakfast:
Oatmeal with flax, Salba, wheat germ
5 egg whites, 1 yolk (healthy fats in the yolk)
Water
Coffee
Fish oil supplements
250 ml water with 6 ounces wheat grass

Mid morning:
Small apple
Unsalted almonds
3 egg whites
250 ml water
Chamomile tea

Lunch:
Green salad with loads of chopped veggies, sprouts and water packed tuna
2 Melba toast
Small apple
250 ml water
Chamomile tea

Mid Afternoon:
Protein smoothie with peanut butter, hemp hearts, plain yogurt, water,
oatmeal, flaxseed
Loads of water

Dinner:
Pork tenderloin
Steamed broccoli and cauliflower
Brown rice with coconut butter and herbs
Water, water

Nothing before bed.

Such fun, lovely photographs :0)

My family and I always equip our car with a cooler full of "clean eats," when we go on long car trips - always great to be prepared!!

Hi Tosca!

I have been following your blog for quite some time now! I also live north of toronto, in markham and find you so very inspiring!
Just a quick question for you - how do you prepare your chicken during competition time? I notice you have it alot for dinners and am wondering if you marinate it or season it with anything!

Hi Tosca
any chance you could be more detailed with your workouts? It would be good to hear what type of approach you take to training approaching competition time.

cheers and good luck
Amanda (I met you backstage with Naomi that time - nice to meet you!!)
