High Five Fridays: Weekly Meal Plan (7.27.12), Olympics Edition!featured

It’s all about the Olympics this week! (U.S.A. *** U.S.A. *** U.S.A.) In preparation, Michael Phelps has been pounding 3 fried egg sandwiches, 3 chocolate chip pancakes, a 5-egg omelet, 3 slices of French toast, and a bowl of grits ever day – and that’s just breakfast. What have you been doing? It’s time to PROTEIN-LOAD, my friends. You want to be a champion? You need FISH. You need SAUSAGE. You need STEAK, CHICKEN, and TOFU. You need the OLYMPIC RINGS OF PROTEIN. Rawr. You can do it.

Protein-load like a champ this week:
  1. Beer-Battered Fish and Chips. The UK gets a gold medal for this one.
  2. Bangers and Mash with Onion Gravy. If you can’t go to London, bring London to you.
  3. Grilled Ribeye Steak with Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce. Maybe Phelps should start working this into his 12,000 calorie daily meal plan.
  4. Arroz con Pollo. One-pot meal = more time for pumping iron.
  5. Black Sesame Otsu. Buckwheat carbs and lean protein. Go for the gold.
  6. TREAT YO SELF: Throw some Banana Boats on the BBQ this week and you’ll be doing some Olympic victory laps around the yard.
*****
Oh, that's right, you get 6 recipes this week! Because Olympians go above and beyond.
Which games will you be tuning in for?
Gymnastics? Diving? Volleyball? Did you know there’s a Trampoline event?! Not even kidding. Let the games begin!!!
