Queen Elizabeth’s Eating Habits

Many fans of Her Majesty’s family are interested in the royal’s menu. Fortunately, Elizabeth II’s former chef Darren McGrady recently gave an interview in which he told all the secrets. Certainly, the eating habits of Queen Elizabeth are surprising.

According to Darren, Her Majesty is a real fan of healthy eating. Elizabeth II has grilled vegetables, chicken, and lean fish every day. She also loves healthy salads, fresh fruits, and berries. The Queen’s diet is very diverse, but there are dishes that she always excludes from her menu.

Queen Elizabeth’s Eating Habits

Here are 9 foods that Elizabeth II never eats:

  1. Sweet Tea
    The fact that Elizabeth II drinks her tea with milk will surprise no one. A true Englishwoman, after all. However, Her Majesty strongly dislikes any sweeteners.
  2. Uncut Bananas

  3. Non-Seasonal Fruits
    Even though the queen is a big fan of fruits and berries, she eats them only when they are in season. Strawberries are delivered to Buckingham Palace from the best gardens of Scotland. However, only in summer Elizabeth allows herself to feast on her favorite treat.
  4. Bread Crust

  5. White Chicken Eggs
    Oddly enough, Her Majesty’s favorite egg scramble with truffle and salmon is made only from brown eggs.
  6. Garlic and Onions

  9. Pasta
    For the same reason, there is no place for pasta on the royal menu. Everything that contains starch is taboo.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
