The Breakphast Of Champions

Labels: , , , , , ,

Most probably you have heard of Michael Phelps' whopping 12,000 daily calorie intake and his much talked and blogged about breakfast that NBC's Bob Costas reported as:

"...Three sandwiches of fried eggs, cheese, lettuce, tomato, fried onions and mayonnaise, add one (five-egg) omelet, a bowl of grits, and three slices of French toast with powdered sugar, then wash down with three chocolate chip pancakes."

To celebrate Phelps's GR-EIGHT performance, for breakfast I made chocolate chip pancakes and a 5-egg omelet filled with the freshest shiitake mushrooms and onions sauteed in butter and seasoned with very little Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce and sea salt. Yummy breakfast for *couch potato* champions like myself.

shiitake mushrooms that look like pancakes growing on logs

I'm no champion eater, I can barely finish 2 pancakes and less than half of the omelet

He sure eats a lot but then he burns it easily as well. Those of us who are not as lucky as he is can still enjoy his breakfast but at a most smaller scale. I love, love choco chip pancaks but instead of butter I like smearing peanut butter over it. Yummy! =)

Rita, 4,000 calories is a LOT. I am guessing my daily breakfast calorie is about 500 or maybe less.:)

That's enough calories for a week. I guess you need to be a genetic freak to handle that kind if calorie intake.

Raissa, he gives credit to his Mom for being patient with him and introducing him to swimming to spend all his boundless energy as a kid with ADD.

Dhanggit, you are a golden medalist in pancake eating!:D

Jude, Michael Phelps is a freak (he has size 14 feet and wing span longer than normal for his 6'2" height) but such a great athlete and Olympic champion. Can you tell I am a phan?:D
I noticed he does not eat a lot of meat but loads up on carbs necessary for his daily swimming training.
