What we can learn from Queen Elizabeth’s diet



Although her life was extravagant and everyone dreams of living like a Queen, living luxuriously was off the table when it came to her diet

The Queen’s food philosophy was simple.

Maybe chocolate cake is the key to living deep into your 90s?

Queen Elizabeth was a massive fan of Earl Gray tea, and her love for the famous British beverage now marks every afternoon – fit for a queen.

The way Queen Elizabeth ate and drank impacted our diet too.

Despite an array of on-call gourmet personal chefs, The Queen referred a modest, structured diet for her daily life.

Darren McGrady, who served as Her Majesty’s personal chef for 15 years says Her Majesty was one to dine simply

So for breakfast, it was Corn flakes or Marmalade on toast followed by a simple and light lunch and dinner like chicken and vegetables.

But when it comes to things she didn’t like, garlic and onions were strictly off the menu.

Her last meals would have followed this same philosophy.

But back in the day The Queen liked to indulge in tea, scones, gin and cake.

In fact, she had a legendary love of sweets, always leaving room for dessert, some would say a chocoholic.

So what we can learn from the Queen’s plate, is simple sometimes is best and it’s fine to enjoy enjoy a cocktail and occasional slice of chocolate cake with a hot cup of tea – in true royal fashion!
