Super Bowl Sunday: Eating Like an Eagle
It takes a significant amount of stamina and endless hours of training for professional athletes, Olympians, and buff celebrities to reach their peak performance levels. But it’s not all about the workout; it’s also about nutrition and wellness.
- Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson eats more than 5,000 calories a day – including 2.3 pounds of cod.
- Actor Hugh Jackman consumed 6,000 calories a day to bulk up for while role as Logan in Wolverine.
- Olympian Michael Phelps reportedly consumes 12,000 calories per day while training.
Now compare that to the recommended 2,000-3,000 calories the average adult should consume, according to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.

FLIK Hospitality Group provides quality and nutritious meals with a wellness-first approach, the Eagles are eating fresh foods from farm to field. Our team of dietitians and chefs work hand-in-hand with the team dietitian and trainers to assure each player is getting a personalized menu full of their perfect combination of carbs, proteins, vitamins, fiber, and heart-healthy fats.
But it’s more than just fresh vegetables and lean proteins. The Eagles love their comfort foods. With a new smoker on-site, barbequed meats and proteins are a regular occurrence on the team’s menu.
If you’re looking for some inspiration, this Smoked Pork Belly Banh Mi is a great Super Bowl Sunday treat to make. But be forewarned, the recipe requires 24-hours of marinating.
And don’t forget about team traditions. Before game day, FLIK always serves breakfast fried rice. We render bacon, sauté onions in the bacon fat, add soy sauce and mix it all together with rice and scrambled eggs. Add in some veggies for an additional pop of color.
If you’re looking to Eat Like an Eagle this Super Bowl Sunday, and serve a crowd, you’ll menu needs to include:
- Breakfast Fried Rice
- Smoked Pork Belly Manh Mi
- Eagles Cupcakes
- Buffalo Chicken Blue Cheese Stuffed Avocados
And before sure to put New England Clam Chowder on the menu. The Eagles needs to devour the competition ahead of the game.
