Olympic eating


I recently got a grumpy bbm from my best friend on her holidays with the fairly new husband and in-laws: “Rugby, cricket, golf then cricket… am I being unreasonable? Last night of hols and all!”

At the time I was glued to The Open, on her couch, looking after her cat. Empathy levels were low.

But seriously, with all the sport on TV lately it has been a bit of a man-fest of couch potato pleasure. Yes we’ve had MasterChef SA, but that was once a week, and now it’s over. (Yes, cooking is a sport).

Now, ladies… it’s our turn!

Finally, the Olympic Games kick off tomorrow and we love watching us a bit of diving, gymnastics, athletics, rowing, David Beckham... (you'll want to watch this video). And we can indulge in the Olympic sport of stuffing our faces.

I’m going for gold!

Chef Caro has whipped up an awesome Olympic Menu with great ideas for TV dinners, snacks and bits and bobsleds.

And if that's not solid gold enough for you here are some more telly-munching ideas...

Step-by-step chilli poppers

Pizza base and 4 delicious toppings

Step-by-step samoosas

Spinach and tomato quiches

Gourmet boerewors roll

The ultimate hamburger

Steak wraps

Chocolate and banana spring rolls

Peanut butter chip cupcakes

There may well be some Olympic dieting going on after the games - but hey, they only come around once every 4 years.
