Olympic Athletes’ Superfoods

Olympic Athletes’ Superfoods

What do the athletes of the 2012 Summer Olympics eat in training and what will they splurge on after the games?

I try to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, things high in anti-oxidants, acai, like the new fruit, super fruit.

My mom does a lot of the cooking for me, so I do a lot of rice, beans, grilled chicken.

We eat a lot of vegetables; we eat a lot of chicken. Small portions throughout the day, it’s what we have to do to get where we need to be.

I would say chocolate milk and peanut butter is the lifeblood of any athlete. It’s instant energy that can last a long time.
