As soon as Toomey wakes up (usually around 7 am or as early as 5:30 am), she hydrates. "I have a glass of water and a squeeze of lemon in it to give it a bit of flavour," she says. She follows that up with two Goli Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies.
While stir fries are the go-to, Toomey will sometimes switch up her lunch, opting for steak with asparagus and potatoes, or eggs on a bagel. "We're just trying to make sure that I'm fuelling the body with wholesome ingredients of fruit, vegetables and good proteins, like chicken steak or fish."
"A nice go-to dinner is cooked up kale with salt sprinkled over it, and a slice of salmon or steak," Tia says. "It's light and satisfying and healthy. I try to have a smaller dinner, so I'm not going to bed on a full stomach." Tia aims to eat dinner around 7:00 pm to give herself time to unwind before bedtime at 9:00 pm.
After workouts, she digs into leftovers from her lunch earlier in the day. She keeps a container in her gym bag just in case. "I’ve put my body through a strenuous training session, and it will be looking for food to help with recovery," Toomey says. "I don’t have a huge meal but enough to provide the body with fuel it's looking for after the session."
