This Is What The First Lady Actually Eats

This Is What The First Lady Actually Eats

July 21, 2019 100 By William Morgan


What the First Lady of the United States eats
is usually a pretty big deal.
She tends to set the “culinary tone” of not
only the White House, but the entire country.
Melania Trump is notoriously reclusive, but
she has shared a few details about her daily
diet.
And believe it or not, it doesn’t all consist
of caviar and priceless gems.
Here’s everything we know so far about what
the First Lady eats.
Smart start
The First Lady keeps breakfast light, often
having a smoothie in the morning.
She shared her “every day delicious & healthy
breakfast,” with her followers on Facebook.
The former model puts organic fruits and veggies
and fat-free yogurt in the drink, topped off
with olive oil, flax seeds, Omega-3 supplements,
and vitamin D.
Of course, Melania doesn’t always have a smoothie
for breakfast, but she does usually try to
go for something healthy.
When she’s not drinking a morning smoothie,
she told GQ that she opts for oatmeal as a
filling way to start her day.
Bring on the fruit
Melania eats a lot of fruit.
Reportedly, she challenges herself to eat
at least seven pieces every day.
It might sound like a lot, but according to
a study conducted by Imperial College London,
researchers have found that eating more than
five servings of fruits and vegetables each
day can reportedly reduce the risk of several
health problems, including heart attacks and
cancer.
It looks like the First Lady is on to something.
But hold the veggies
She may be a fruit lover, but the First Lady
is a little bit more selective when it comes
to vegetables.
In an appearance on The Martha Stewart Show,
the Trumps prepared one of the president’s
favorite meals: meatloaf sandwiches.
But Melania wasn’t big on the veggie garnishes.
“Would you like the onion too, Melania?”
“No, I don’t eat onion.”
“Do you like artichokes?”
“No.”
“No?”
In fact, the only vegetables she allowed on
her sandwich were dill pickles.
You just can’t take too many risks when it
comes to meatloaf sandwiches.
Fast food
Melania prefers to eat healthy, but it looks
like she’ll also grab a bag of fast food in
a pinch.
In 2017, Melania traveled to Texas to meet
with victims and first responders in the aftermath
of Hurricane Harvey.
While there, she and Karen Pence, wife of
Vice President Mike Pence, paid a visit to
a Whataburger in Corpus Christi.
There’s no word on what the First Lady actually
ordered from the franchise, but she and Karen
Pence left with several bags, including fries
for the press traveling with them.
“I always make sure there is cheeseburger.”
[Laughter]
“Thank you for your service.”
Chicken Parmigianino
Melania does enjoy a good meal out, and revealed
her favorite dish to New York Magazine.
She said:
“One thing I love most about New York is the
variety of amazing foods you can eat.
My all-time favorite is the chicken Parmigianino
at Jean Georges.”
Sweet release
Chocolate is one indulgence the First Lady
refuses to do without, believing that it’s
important to give in to your cravings once
in a while.
Along with chocolate, ice cream is Melania’s
other big sweet indulgence.
She says:
“It’s good to indulge cravings and your
tastes once in a while […] as long as you
balance those things with healthy foods.”
This is a sharp contrast from her husband’s
dessert preferences.
In a Time exclusive, it was revealed that
at dinner,
“[Trump] gets two scoops of vanilla ice cream
with his chocolate cream pie, instead of the
single scoop for everyone else.”
Maybe those ice cream gloves weren’t such
a bad idea after all.
“Me idea is to come out with just like these
ice cream gloves, that make the ice cream
not go on your hands and make it all well
sticky.”
Diet coke
Melania and Donald Trump also have similar
drink preferences — though the amounts they
consume are vastly different.
They both prefer Diet Coke — though Melania
prefers to only drink hers from glass bottles.
Her husband seems to care less about the container,
but he definitely drinks more of it.
A lot more.
According to the New York Times, the president
drinks 12 cans of soda every day.
“This is a very ominous looking because of
the red button.”
“What does that get you?”
“Well, it gets you a coke.”
Hey, you’ve gotta wash down those meatloaf
sandwiches with something.
