eating breakfast like a champion


Ever since I was wee, I had always been told “eat your Wheaties” because its the breakfasts champions eat. Or they’d ask if I ate my Wheaties that morning if I was running a little slow and appeared unresponsive. You know, knuckles dragging on the floor, blood shot eyes, quiet mumbles–non-championesque traits. Sure, it was a popular spin-off slogan of a popular cereal thanks to a popular basketball player (and other sporting greats), but all of that didn’t make me enjoy it, much less make me feel like a champion. I’d like to think champions ate something delicious before they did something championship-like, not getting down with a bowl of dried up crispy wood chips. Unless of course they are into that kind of thing.
 
I’m more inclined to eat like an Olympian. How about a Michael Phelps breakfast? This is prior to the… um… recent incident. But that guy had 16 square meals a day and still kept his amazing aquatic figure! Yes, give me that please. No, I don’t swim, but that’s what I want to eat.
 
Also, I don’t want to eat so much I become extremely sleepy. I won’t be able to do any work. This is why I no longer go to a buffet during lunch. Well, not everyday. But those lunch prices compared to the dinner prices are so tempting. Just as long as they don’t catch me with my Zip-Loc baggies, I’ll be all set.
 
If a quick energy burst is the problem, how do champions handle that? Gatorade, energy drinks and coffee belong in their own category I’d have to discuss another day. But how about those PowerBars? Not for me. I don’t enjoy dirt and leaves mashed together from a dried up paste fortified with who-knows-what. I can barely tolerate oatmeal. But there’s a different reason why oatmeal and I don’t get along that, like caffeine, deserves it’s own commentary.
 
So what does this champion like to dine on? I vote for just about anything you can find at your local IHOP or 24 hour diner: scrambled eggs, pancakes, French toast, waffles and bacon. But of course, one of the many benefits of working at home is never leaving your home. So it’s essential to have these items continuously stocked in your kitchen so you don’t need to leave unless there’s a legitimate reason for doing so (and there really isn’t, it’s dangerous out there). I also recommend making a friend with someone who works at IHOP so you can get (possibly free) deliveries.
 
Also be sure to have a menu of menus for pizza and other delivery food services. Build an excellent rapport with them and you’ll be set for life (tip them well because you have to pay for gas one way or another).
