We’ve already established how to dress like an Olympian, even if you can barely run a mile. But supporting your favorite team takes more than just throwing on a country’s colors and chanting from the confines of your couch. It takes real, true dedication.
We have found that the best way to show our support for Team USA is by putting our heart and soul behind the cause. And by “soul” we mean stomach. That’s right, we’ve been chowing down on a diet pretty much exclusively of burgers, apple pie and fried chicken. It’s a tough job (and definitely not medically advised), but so is being an Olympic athlete so its the least we can do to show support for the U-S-A.
Whether you are all about representing ‘Merica or have been cheering for another country, you can still follow in our tasty footsteps. Check out our picks for what the chow down on to insure gold medal victory for your favorite team (and for your belly).
