See 8 Secret Behind Queen Elizabeth’s Good Health (No 4 will shock you)
The Queen of England, Queen Elizabeth II, has been able to retain good health and stature due to her secret that many do not know and that is a healthy diet.
The former Royal Chef of the Queen revealed that despite the changes in this recent time in the world, the preferences of the Queen have not changed much.
Here is how the daily routine for the Queen’s meal is like:
1. Pre-breakfast, Tea and Biscuit:
The Queen of England begins her day with a pot of freshly-brewed Earl Grey tea with no sugar and some biscuits.
2. Breakfast that includes fruit
The Queen’s typical breakfast mostly includes fruit and cereal. She usually likes to treat herself with toast made with jam or marmalade and, on very special occasions, she takes scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and some truffles.
3. Pre-lunch cocktail
Queen Elizabeth is known for having a cocktail before lunch. Cocktails like gin and Dubonnet that contains plenty of ice and a slice of lemon.
4. Meals without starch for lunch and dinner
The Queen avoids starchy foods like pasta, rice, or potatoes during lunch and dinner. During lunch, she takes fish such as a grilled Dover sole on a bed of wilted spinach or with courgettes or a simple grilled chicken with a salad.
5. Perfect Afternoon Tea
Her Majesty loves to have an afternoon tea that often comes with a honey and cream sponge cake and with a chocolate biscuit cake.
Her former chef, McGrady stated the two types of sandwiches which are obligatory at High Tea, such as cucumber, smoked salmon, and egg with mayonnaise or ham and mustard with no crusts. The Queen also enjoys jam pennies.
6. Meaty Dinner
Her Majesty loves to eat meat from local farms for dinner. Her favourite is a Gaelic steak, served with a sauce of mushroom, cream, and whiskey.
She also loves a Sunday roast, and occasionally eats lamb, roast beef, mutton, or grouse. Whichever type of meat it is, it must be served well-done. After the main dish, she loves to have strawberries or peaches, grown in her greenhouses at Windsor Castle.
7. Dinner is not complete without…….
According to some sources, Queen Elizabeth II closes her day with a glass of champagne. This champagne is likely chosen from the eight brands (e.g. Bollinger, Lanson, and Krug), which have been given royal warrants.
Royal warrants show that goods are supplied to a member of the royal family.
