You might have your ideas of what athletes eat to get so ripped — like plenty of broccoli and protein powder — but that’s not exactly what gives the Dallas Cowboys the fuel to win a record nine times in a row.

In a video posted to the Dallas Cowboys’ Facebook page, fans can get a (tongue-in-cheek) inside look into what makes Dak Prescott, Dez Bryant, Ezekiel Elliott and Cole Beasley (among others) such badasses. Apparently, there’s a lot of cereal and hot sauce involved.

Check out the video below:

There’s a whole lot of very meta Cowboys references in these breakfast dishes as longtime fans will note. Dez Bryant’s X-shaped French toast (and cereal) is pretty obvious, as is the shout out to that infamous catch from the Cowboys’ loss to the Packers in 2015. It’s also definitely more fun to watch Ezekiel Elliott smash actual Wheaties instead of the imaginary cereal he’s eating on the field.
