Keeping up with all the talented and healthy athletes this Summer Olympics leaves my talentless self pretty famished. On second thought, if there were one talent I could share with the Olympic athletes, it’s eating.
And since we all know I can’t perform multiple cartwheels across the floor, or swim laps like my life depended on it, the closest thing to sharing the Rio experience is to bring Brazilian food to my table! I’ve devised a bomb-ass menu with the most mouthwatering traditional and non-traditional yet Brazilian-inspired food. I am grateful for the miracle of Pinterest.
