How to Eat Like an Olympian

Iron Chef America

As the games begin to heat up in the Olympics arena, the competition will be equally fierce in Kitchen Stadium during Cooking Channel’s marathon of Iron Chef America tonight beginning at 8 PM ET. They’re two different arenas with two different kinds of champions, but both keep us on the edge of our seats.

The London Olympics 2012 opening weekend brought us some great television: David Boyle’s cinematic opening ceremony, intense international competition and a round-up of athletes with bodies so toned you can’t help but feel inferior watching them. By the end of it, with my mind on Olympics overload, I naturally began to think about food. What do Olympics athletes eat to keep up with such a strenuous physical regimen?

To gear up for the Iron Chef marathon tonight, we’ve rounded up two iron-bodied Olympian-inspired menus.

The Michael Phelps: Famous for his 12,000-calories-a-day training diet during Beijing’s 2008 Olympic games (apparently he’s cut that down to about half  this year, still a feat for us mere mortals), the gold medal swimmer makes us want to break out the griddle and fry up some breakfast foods. This Phelps-inspired breakfast menu includes Buttermilk Pancakes, Chocolate & Strawberry Stuffed French Toast and an Italian Egg Sandwich. Unless you’re an athlete yourself, you may want to find a buddy to share.

The Carmelita Jeter: Jeter—the World’s Fastest Woman—claims her impressively toned physique (those abs would put most men at the gym to shame) is fueled by a healthy diet including lots of  chicken, rice and veggies. She inspires our perfectly-balanced, light summer dinner menu of Grilled Tuscan Chicken, Wild Rice Salad and Grilled Mixed Vegetables.

Whether you indulge in the fried Phelps foods, keep it light Jeter-style or mix things up with other summer dinner favorites, the Olympics are just as good an excuse as any to cook up a delicious meal and veg out at the end of a long day with Iron Chef America and the iron athletic competition of the 2012 Olympics.
