Breakfast of champions

Ever wonder what Michael Phelps eats for breakfast? Read on!

You’ve heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Well, BBC Breakfast recently asked the important question – what does Michael Phelps eat for breakfast? The answer was pretty fascinating.

  • Three fried egg sandwiches, with cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, fried onions and mayonnaise
  • Three chocolate chip pancakes
  • A five-egg omelette
  • Three sugar-coated slices of French toast
  • A bowl of grits
  • Two cups of coffee

There you go, folks. The makings of an Olympian may be hidden somewhere in that combination (along with a lot of swimming, of course!).  If you’re curious, you can read what he eats for lunch and dinner, too.

On weekdays, I generally go with two cups of coffee, and that’s it until a mid-morning snack of trail mix. (Yes, there is a reason I’m not an Olympian). But on weekends, I enjoy making pancakes, scones or cinnamon rolls for the family. In fact, a couple weekends ago, we indulged in this amazing biscuits and gravy recipe from Portland’s Mother’s Bistro & Bar, which is easily the best biscuits and gravy I’ve ever had.

So what do you eat for breakfast? The full English? Something more continental? Cereal? A cup of joe?
