Everybody knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but what do US Olympians eat to start off their mornings?



Allyson Felix, sprinter: “Oatmeal and fruit, usually. And lots of coffee!”



Carli Lloyd, soccer midfielder: “Breakfast is usually some egg whites and I’ll add some avocado and hot sauce. But if I have an early workout, I’m not usually hungry at 6 a.m. so I’ll just grab a KIND breakfast bar. My favorite is the blueberry almond.”



David Boudia, diver: “I’m pretty habitual when I’m at home. There’s rarely a day when I don’t have a smoothie. 

My recipe for my favorite, the David Boudia exclusive, includes: 

1/2 cup rolled oats 

1/2 cup of coconut water 

Handful of frozen blueberries 6-7 frozen strawberries. 

Handful of fresh spinach 

1/2 banana 

1 scoop of peanut butter protein”



Alex Morgan, soccer forward: “On game days I eat more than I usually would for breakfast: two eggs, wheat toast, banana pancakes and some fruit. And maybe some avocado, too.”



Christen Press, soccer forward: “I love acai bowls, juice, and kombucha to stay energized.”
