Fine Dining

There are few pleasures in life better than a good workout followed by a delicious meal. I love pushing myself on a long run knowing a rare roast beef sandwich stacked with lettuce, tomato, pepperoncinis and mustard from the local deli is my big payoff. Or even better, making a great meal at home. After much trial and error, I’ve learned how to make a very serviceable barbecue chicken pizza. I also have a killer guacamole in my repertoire that makes for some tasty tacos. No matter what your palate craves, the idea is the harder you work out, the better the payoff. No doubt pro athletes appreciate this concept more than anyone. Jeff Z. Klein of The New York Times explores the bountiful postgame spreads at NHL games.
