What to Eat on Saturday?? Not a Bird!

Hi All!

It's Saturday and a little gloomy and rainy outside. Regardless of weather training and eating have to go on, although I must admit the jet lag from Europe is difficult to get over.

Breakfast consisted of the usual 1/2 cup oatmeal cooked with 1 cup water. I ran out of wheat germ so I tossed in some Salba and bee pollen. I craved something sweet so I had a banana. It was delicious.

250 ml warm water with lemon juice

250 ml water and 6 ounces wheat grass

black coffee

5 scrambled egg whites

Mid Morning

1 cup pumpkin spice coffee

hemp protein smoothie with 1 tablespoon natural nut butter


2 cups salad greens with chopped salad veggies

5 ounce grilled chicken breast

250 ml water

Mid Afternoon

1 bowl homemade turkey vegetable soup (yummy!)


3 small Bison meatballs

2 roasted baby potatoes

1 cup steamed broccoli

chamomile tea

Before Bed

probably nothing since I am not hungry.


Leg Day!!!

We did leg extensions, hamstring curls and squats. Lots of squats with an Olympic bar and plenty of weight.
PS. Curious about the picture? That is my Aunt Corrie teaching me how to kiss their budgie while I was in Holland. It felt really funny on my lips.
Good night all! My legs are done!!

Oh yes, I remember it took about at LEAST three days to fully get over the jet lag from Europe - hang in there, Tosca!!

Aww, lovely photograph of you and your aunt!! :0)

Hey Tosca~

Thanks for posting your eats for your contest prep. I like seeing what competitors eat.

Also, is their a website where your competition photos are posted? I would love to see them.

Hi Tosca,

I must know what is the Pumpkin Spice Coffee you had today?

I am currently addicted to Pumpkin Spice Lattes, so I am hoping you have a "clean" version to share! :)

You're the best, thanks for your constant updates - I love reading your blog everyday!

Aww, such a cute budgie. I used to give my Petrie kisses. He looked just like that one.

Hana, I add cinnamon, ginger, coriander, and ground cloves to the coffee grounds before I brew. Then just prepare your brewed coffee in a "clean" way, and voila! Pumpkin spice coffee.
