What Pro Athletes Have For Breakfast

Some of them eat healthier than the rest…

Josh Bryant – Two omelets with eight egg whites and salsa, potatoes and black coffee.

Jo Jordan – Apple Cinnamon Cheerios, Triple Berry Cheerios and Strawberry Mini Wheats mixed together with a cup of coffee.

Hannah Johnson – Maple and brown sugar high fiber oatmeal with cinnamon, a handful of walnuts and four boiled eggs. Deliciousness!

Ted Toalston – Eggs, grits, cinnamon raisin toast with almond butter, a banana and water. This is how I do breakfast! I’m loving it!

Chad Smith – Six eggs with turkey, spinach, peppers and cheese combined with four multigrain pancakes. I eat this meal about 90 minutes before my squat training.

Molly Edwards – Eggs and milk.

Matt Kroczaleski – I have 3/4 cup of malt-o-meal (measured dry), 18 eggs (15 whites) and a quart or so of water. If I want more protein, I’ll add 50 grams of whey to the malt-o-meal. As this is 125 grams or more of carbs and 70 grams of protein. With the whey, it pushes them up to around 125 grams of both carbs and protein and the calories go from 900 to 1200kCal or more. This is usually my first or second meal out of the six to eight I’ll have for the day.

Jason Pegg – Bacon, potatoes, mushrooms, onion. ALL FRIED IN BACON. ALL HAIL RHODESTOWN!

Brian Schwab – Here’s what my breakfast is six days out of the week. It’s usually my highest calorie meal since I have a hard time forcing food down past a point of fullness.

Schwab Shake:
2 Cups Chocolate Milk
2 Scoops Whey protein
1 Scoop Dextrose
2 Tbsp. Peanutbutter
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
