There are changes being made in Philadelphia this year, and that starts in the cafeteria. Players who grew accustomed to “taco Tuesdays” and “fast food Fridays” will be disappointed this year. Chip Kelly has nixed all junk food this year, including pizza, chicken wings, fried food and red meat, according to Jeannine Edwards of ESPN. In their place, players will eat lean protein and fruit smoothies. It’s not surprising to hear that tacos and fast food were nixed as Andy Reid was fired. It also shouldn’t seem like rocket science that eating well could improve a team in a sport that relies on speed and strength. Reporters have also been marveling at their first glimpse of Eagles practice under Kelly. The atmosphere can best be summed up as fast-paced but orderly. Tweets have surfaced that all five quarterbacks are throwing at once, there’s music blaring and there’s a hundred things happening at once from essentially every Eagles beat writer watching. Check out the Eagles’ new nutrition options in the photos below.
