We salute all the amazing athletes who are competing in the Winter Olympics this month in PyeongChang, South Korea. These athletes work so hard to stay at the top of their game and give their best performance during the Winter Games, we are sure they must start every day with a solid breakfast. We did a little research and found out what some of our favorite athletes eat each day to stay in gold medal shape! Here is what we found:
Mikaela Shiffrin: An alpine skier for team USA, Mikaela runs on the motto “Always be faster than the boys.” And that she is! Perhaps one of the best all around skiers in US history, Mikaela will definitely be bringing home some hardware from the 2018 Olympics.
Her gold medal breakfast: Two eggs and two pieces of toast. Or sometimes cereal (or oatmeal) and fruit.
Chloe Kim: This 17 year old phenom just struck gold in the women’s snowboard halfpipe competition. We love her personality and her now famous tweet about being “hangry” midway through the competition. We also love her breakfast choices! Chloe, if you are ever in Denver, come visit us at The Original Pancake House, we have all your favorites!
Her gold medal breakfast: Chocolate pancakes, biscuits and gravy, toast, and cottage cheese.
Chris Mazdzer: You’ve seen Chris in the headlines over the past few days because he captured the first Olympic medal of any kind for the United States in the sport of Luge. Way to go Chris! Lugers also must eat a lot for breakfast because apparently the heavier they are, the faster they go! Sounds like our kind of sport.
His gold medal breakfast: Eggs, either scrambled, over-medium or in omelet with onions, peppers, mushrooms and spinach. He occasionally has smoked salmon and side of avocado or muesli, with plain yogurt and honey.
Nathan Chen: The American star favorited to take a medal in men’s figure skating is only 18 years old! Nathan has a busy training schedule so he needs a well-balanced breakfast to get him going each morning.
His gold medal breakfast: A smoothie, egg breakfast wrap, or yogurt.
We love watching these amazing athletes compete and represent Team USA. We are all cheering you on from Denver! USA! USA!
