Shania Twain is gearing up to hit the road for her upcoming Queen Of Me Tour in support of her current album of the same name. And that means she is getting herself ready for plenty of late nights, live shows, and endless traveling.

The “Giddy Up!” powerhouse, 57, has always been in shape, but even with a fit physique, she has to find ways to maintain focus and stay fueled while on tour. Luckily, she finds healthy food to be one of the best sources of energy as she prepares for her forthcoming tour schedule.

Fans will be happy to know that Twain isn’t shy about sharing her on-tour food diary. In fact, she laid out all the details of what she puts on her plate during a recent interview with Delish.

Shania Twain’s Show Day Diet Is Strictly Liquids

Turns out that Twain leans heavily into a liquid-only diet packed with protein. She opts for fluid-filled and nutrient-rich meal replacements like smoothies and shakes because it’s easily accessible, works wonders for her vocal cords, and also make for the best option before her live shows.

“Show days, it’s only liquids,” the 57-year-old hitmaker previously shared during an interview on Chicken Shop Date with Amelia Dimoldenberg.

“It’s a vocal thing and an energy thing and a digestive thing,” Twain told Delish. “When you’re using your diaphragm a lot, you end up getting really burp-y and bloat-y if you’re trying to manage your air after having solids.”

“I love the shakes because if I know I’m not going to have a chance to have a nice meal because we’re in the middle of moving around and packing up bags and all that sort of stuff, I just grab a protein drink,” she adds.

One Of Her Staples Is A Root Shake

One of Twain’s staple shakes, dubbed the “root shake,” includes a mixture of ingredients like avocado, bananas, almond milk, and raw spinach. Twain says she will sometimes jazz up the drink by adding a heaping portion of protein powder.

Twain switches up her smoothie style in the later hours of the day, trading out the avocado and banana concoction for a drink that resembles a V8. The list of ingredients for that smoothie are: tomatoes, cucumber, spinach, lemon juice, herbs, and olive oil.

“I make it nice and savory,” Twain says.

Along with her smoothies, Twain – with the help of her husband Frédéric Thiébaud – starts her morning routine with a cup of coffee or tea.

 “If I wake up earlier than usual on a show day, then I’ll treat myself to something with my tea,” she shares. “So I might have avocado toast. I’ll have a papaya, maybe a breakfast croissant, or something like that.”

Occasionally Adds Soups And Cheeses To Her Show Day Diet

Twain also reaches for soups and cheeses when she’s feeling extra-hungry. But Twain doesn’t have to worry about sneaking in other meal options before each tour stop. She says the food is always nearby before and after she hits the stage.

“We take catering around with us. So everywhere we go, the venue has dinner,” the superstar, who also sometimes keeps a lookout for vegetarian restaurants while on the road, says. “And it’s a nice environment because everybody gets together, and we all change tables on different nights depending on what’s going on. So I’ll go say hi to everybody and then have some iced tea or something and get my to-go plate for after the show.”

Twain’s Queen Of Me Tour will kick off its first show on April 28 at the Spokane Arena in Spokane, Wash. The trek, which marks her first in nearly five years, will make stops in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.

The tour is scheduled to wrap on September 26 in Birmingham, United Kingdom. Kelsea Ballerini, Breland, Priscilla Block, Mickey Guyton, Robyn Ottolini, Lindsay Ell, and Hailey Whitters are supporting acts on select dates of the tour.

Those who miss out on Twain’s trek won’t have to worry as she announced the second leg of the tour in December of 2022. The second run of shows will begin on October 12 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, and will conclude on November 14 at the Rogers Arena in Vancouver.
