If you’re a high performance athlete like Batman (c’mon, if anyone is fighting outside of his weight class it is the guy who takes on Superman), diet is important. From the B.B.C. comes this high protein salad loaded with healthy fats from tuna and avocado. Click here for the recipe!
From All Recipes comes their version of this classic recipe. It is great to make the night before, and then warm up for a blast of carbs. Batman would probably drink the egg raw out of the shell, but you can mix it in if it makes you feel better. Alfred can easily fit this into Bruce’s utility belt for a quick, wealthy crime fighter snack (though he’d probably use a short cut like Sedanini)! Click here to see the recipe.
If you are expending the amount of calories that Batman does (over 5,000 per day), your body needs a constant infusion of energy. And nuts like almonds are the snack of choice for high performance athletes. Click here to read more about this wonder nut!
7. Borscht Soup
In the first Tim Burton Batman movie, Alfred serves Borscht to Bruce Wayne. This seems like the kind of thing a child would’ve hated, and that Alfred would continue to serve into adulthood. Jerk. Anyway back home in the Ukraine this soup is considered a bit of a super food due to its use of beets. Beef stock as the base (most soups use chicken) gives a superhero on the go both vitamins, fats and carbohydrates to burn.
After spending a night getting the crap kicked out of you by crazy, super powered nut jobs, walnuts are great for helping the body heal by reducing inflammation. And one can eat only so many almonds before you get sick of them. So throw in some variety with these tiny, brain-shaped walnuts instead! Click here for a fun spin on a savory snack. If you don’t like curry or chili powder try substituting wasabi instead.
The starch from the sweet potato is a great energy booster. And being raised in a wealthy home with only the finest things, a dash of a fine bourbon doesn’t hurt! Cut back on the maple syrup in this recipe from the Roasted Root if you’re looking for something less sweet. Personally in terms of whiskey I prefer Gentleman Jack. It’s not strictly a bourbon, but with the charcoal filtering prior to barrel aging, it works great with starchy purees.
If you’re an intense athlete like Bruce Wayne, you’re probably popping eggs like a drug addict for fuel. But as a rich playboy, why munch on the same old egg when your fancy pants waiter can infuse them with black truffles??? Check out this technique from Perigord. Or if you’re not in the mood for a mushroom flavor, try this marbled Chinese tea egg infusion instead!
This package of solidified milk delivers protein for muscles, calcium for bones, and a bunch of vitamins that every growing crime-fighter needs. But which cheese is both posh enough for a billionaire, and friendly enough for covert surveillance? A ripe Taleggio or Limburger could prematurely reveal Batman’s presence! My guess is either a wedge of French Beaufort d’Alpage or perhaps a nice Spanish Garrotxa!
Even Batman wants a healthy desert now and again. Bananas are a great source of energy and easy to digest. And with his love of gadgets, this device lets Bruce Wayne or you stuff your banana without peeling it!
