Athletes work out a lot, so it makes sense that they eat a lot too. And like the rest of us, athletes love taking and uploading pictures of their most delectable meals, whether they're exquisitely prepared by a private chef or just guilty indulgences from a greasy spoon. During 2014, notable athletes shared some seriously delicious-looking meals that we would totally chow down on. While the list below is by no means exhaustive, here are some of the highlights.
