Eat Like the Olympians Do

Winter Olympians need fuel for their bodies.

And one thing they are not in short supply of at the Olympic Training Center? Beef!

This Russian/Ukrainian-themed soup above (called Borscht) meets the standards of many an elite athlete.

Its beefy goodness will be propelling athletes through the rigorous training and competition that is the Olympics.

Olympians Eat Steak – I Should Too!

So, if the world’s most elite athletes are eating steak to aid in their training, I – as a mother of two scrappy young boys – must also consume steak due to my strenuous daily activity. I’ve got to keep in tip-top shape.

So goes my train of thought.

It’s valid. It’s airtight reasoning, okay? Don’t step on my mojo.

Apolo Ohno wouldn’t.

This cool article gives us a glimpse into the Olympic Villagers’ world and what they eat to keep their bodies running at high capacity. Of course you know that steak is on the menu, but check out what else they offer.
