More Fun Food Photos

Last night we did some intense training. I finally made it back to my yoga class. It was an hour and 15 minutes of pure... intensity. I am terrible at downward dog!! I can't believe I have great upper body strength and no tolerance for downward dog. Boo! I spent all year last year working on it and now after a mere 3 months hiatus I am back to where I started. I guess that just means I have to practice harder.

After that I came home only to break my relaxation with a really intense biceps and triceps session. We did 10 set of biceps and 10 sets of triceps. I was definitely grunting. My arms are hurting this morning.

Here are some shots of my breaky.... oatmeal (with all the fixings), black coffee and water. I already had my wheat grass drink this morning. I started preparing some homemade tomato sauce last night. Here it is boiling on the stove with my eggs next to it. I also have a shot of all my breakfast fixings on the table... Ezekiel cereal, flax, bee pollen, wheat germ, Chia seeds, rice milk, etc. etc.

I LOVE YOGA!!! I do it every single morning, and find that it's a wonderful component to my strength-training routine - helps me to stretch out my sore muscles :-)

Love the breakfast!!

Tosca,

I started taking bee pollen after reading about it in "Clean Eating" and ever since, I noticed a nice increase in energy!" Thank you for writing about it. I would have never known otherwise =)

Tosca, I am going to be training for a marathon this spring but still want to follow the clean eating plan, as well as weight train 2-3 times per week. DO you have any suggestions to help keep me fueled while dropping body fat at the same time?

My eyes got buggy when I saw 10 sets! Guess that may be what I need to do. I seem to not be able to advance in the bicep area at all!

Tosca, where do you find Clean dried fruits such as cranberries? Most of the varieties I find in the stores are sugar-laden. Are the ones sweetened with fruit juice any better?

Hi Tosca,
When is the more apporite time to eat friut?
It wouls seem that veggies sustain our blood sugar highs and lows better..and with fruit they would drop fast. Okay to use a banana with bluberries and protein powder for post work out?

Tosca, where do you buy your bee pollen? I have done some research on the internet and want to make sure I am buying high quality. I read you should not buy from China and most stuff sold in the USA is from China. I just want to make sure that what I have read is accurate. Thank you for the inspiration to eat clean and be healthy!
