Carla Hall's African Groundnut Soup with Baked Sweet Potatoes, Adzuki Beans, and Peanuts was the perfect meal for some US Open tennis players, so a meat-free soup should be perfect to help you take on the competition.
If you're going to go classic training meal, Kevin Gillespie's Meatballs with Polenta, Roasted Cauliflower, and Roasted Pear, takes the classic spaghetti and meatballs to the next level.
There's no better fat than salmon, particularly when it's done Jenn Carroll style -- spiced up with jalapenos.
Instead of drinking raw eggs classic muscle man style move to something a little more refined. Mike Isabella's Skillet Asparagus with Six-Minute Egg and Green Romesco adds some much needed greenery to your diet.
OK, so maybe it's not the most healthy smoothie, but Sally Camacho's Berry Smoothie with White Chocolate Rice Krispies sure does sound delicious.
Micheal Phelps eats a whole cheese pizza a day for his usual training diet, but maybe you'd prefer something a little more toothsome. This Grilled Pizza with Mozzarella, Tomatoes, Romano, Arugula, and Prosciutto from Tony Mantuano will give you a far less boring way to take in the calories.
A balanced breakfast is always important -- particularly if you're competing for the gold. Try Floyd Cardoz's Chanterelles, Bacon and Spinach Omelet with Grilled Tomatoes.
Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are packed with protein, but a little boring. Why not sweet the deal by loading up on Carlos Enriquez's Peanut Butter and Jelly Macarons.
Is there a better way to get protein than a delicious three meat sandwich? We think not, which is why we'd bulk up with Wilo Benet's "tripleta" any day of the week.
Grilled chicken's a classic protein, but really isn't a breast that much better when it's prepped Alex Reznik and Andrea Curto-Randazzo-style -- slathered in delicious BBQ sauce and served with classic sides.
