Whenever I am in Paris, all I want to do is inhale a big plate of cheese. And in New York, my favourite thing is a toasted bagel with cream cheese. Not only do I not avoid carbs, I more or less have them in every meal. When I start denying myself foods, that’s when I crave them.

Rory Freedman
For ‘The Rise of Cobra,’ I was dieting more and using protein powder to help supplement my meals. For ‘Retaliation,’ however, I opted for more natural protein. I had a chicken breast and broccoli meal about five times every day. I also drank plenty of water and made sure I got enough rest.

I couldn’t tell you what last meal I had, or anything of those things because I didn’t think about it; it wasn’t important to me. I think about it now. I can tell you everything I ate for the past week. I think that alone makes me a better person.

Wooing the press is an exercise roughly akin to picnicking with a tiger. You might enjoy the meal, but the tiger always eats last.

Raymond Burr

Few of us can accurately gauge how we will feel tomorrow or next week. That’s why when you go to the supermarket on an empty stomach, you’ll buy too much, and if you shop after a big meal, you’ll buy too little.
Daniel Gilbert
Being a mom, I can’t imagine my child not having a meal. That’s hard to digest.

I believe that people, regardless of their station in life, should be able to sit down at a table to a meal – inside away from the heat and cold, the rain and the snow.

There’s still nothing like a home-cooked meal. Absolutely not.
I had a very hard-working father and a very hard-working mother. My dad was someone that would get up at 5 in the morning and work ’til 4 in the afternoon and then had a hobby he made money with.

The notion of getting pleasure from food has gone too f

Sitting down and sharing a meal together combines two of my favorite loves: eating great food and talking about great food.

Passover takes place in the home rather than the synagogue and centers around an epic meal – the seder – so you remember Passover as storytelling, you remember it in food, and you remember it in the family.

Ryan Paevey

I’m not good at eating small meals. Some people can sit down and be very disciplined. When I sit down at a meal, I sort of eat everything I can reach. I know medical people say that’s exactly the wrong formula, but I’ve made it this far.
Property in Provence can cost a fortune if you don’t know where to look and a glass of champagne sipped on the pristine whitewashed terrace of one of the seafront hotels in Cannes can set you back the price of a meal in any other establishment.
I enjoy a good meal as much as anyone, but I get so confused by nutritional, budgetary, ecological, ethical, aesthetic, and time-management concerns that I often subsist for weeks on instant oatmeal and multivitamins.
For the record, I’ve never taken a bung in my life. I might have enjoyed a meal or a bottle of wine on an agent or two but that is it. I was earning £1.5m a year, so I didn’t need a little bit extra from an agent. It would have been madness.
I enjoy spending time at home or going out for a quiet meal in a restaurant.
The perfect gadget would somehow allow me to fly. Isn’t that what everybody wants? It would also cook a damn good microwave pizza. So while in flight you had something to eat – an in-flight meal. Where would I go? Well, nowadays, it would probably just take me to work a lot quicker.
I love bread and would happily eat it for every meal of the day.
We have had the exact same meal for Thanksgiving and Christmas since I can ever remember, and it’s so simple. It’s just turkey and mashed potatoes and green beans and stuffing. Just the basics, but it’s so good.

A recipe is a story that ends with a good meal.
Landmines distinguish themselves because once they have been sown, once the soldier walks away from the weapon, the landmine cannot tell the difference between a soldier or a civilian – a woman, a child, a grandmother going out to collect firewood to make the family meal.
Jody Williams
I’m a big avocado brother. I love the avocado. So if I can get some avocado in a meal, that’s a big win.
I love my wife dearly, and, therefore, I’ve never cooked a meal, romantic or otherwise, for her.
I think that romance sort of coincides with effort, so you can fall flat on your face, but as long as you’re making a great effort, I think it comes off as romantic. So it can be something as simple as, like, if you’re someone who doesn’t cook, you can make a meal.
My favorite meal would be a big piece of steak with salad and then Brussels sprouts and Jerusalem artichokes.
I want to make vegetables a bit cooler and help people see them as something that can be an interesting, delicious addition to any meal, but that doesn’t mean you should feel you only need to eat broccoli!

I still think the best classic meal in New York is a coffee-shop breakfast – you sort of can’t skip it.

Denise Juneau
Well, I think if more people had more applause, it would make them feel better. I often give my wife a round of applause. If the meal is very good I give her a standing ovation.
My ad-hoc empirical formula is that wherever you grow a lot of rice, there is a lot of art developing as well. My theory goes on to say that after having a nice meal of rice, one feels lethargic and don’t think of work. When you don’t think of work, you think of art.
Funny you mention my dinner parties when I have just suggested that inviting close friends over to share a meal with candlelight and wine at your table could be a form of religious experience for some people. To me it’s a form of sacrament.
Sally Quinn

One of my favorite things to cook is fondue. I’m Swiss. It’s a great social meal.
We have got too many kids around the house to have a romantic meal at home. But Danielle is a fantastic cook. She does a brilliant lasagne, great roasts and a great chilli dish. She knows the way to my heart.
See, I just don’t want to starve at my wedding. So, my dream wedding is one where I get to eat a meal while everyone else enjoys themselves as well.
Corned beef and cabbage – that’s our favorite holiday meal when all the O’ Haras gather around the table.
And then it was working with Bob Hoskins, who I had never worked with before – except radio. It was like being given a wonderful meal – full of the things you love most.
I love the idea of farm to table and farmer‘s markets. I enjoy a meal more if I know I’m eating something that’s good quality and good for me.
My kids know there’s no candy, no soda, until the weekend. Those are the days they get to indulge in their sweets. We’re big on organic food. I’m not a diet guy; I don’t believe in diets. I just believe in a great meal plan.
I love spending time with my friends and family. The simplest things in life give me the most pleasure: cooking a good meal, enjoying my friends.
Cindy Morgan
I was once in a long relationship with a man who ran a vintage clothes store but had been a chef, so I’d come home each night to a different three-course meal. I was quite fat, but so happy.
Back in humanity‘s hunter-gatherer days, you only ate meat if you’d recently made a kill, which required a huge amount of effort, and was therefore relatively rare. There’s a reason humans only have one set of incisors to rip our meat apart: we’re not supposed to eat the stuff at every meal.
Breakfast is my favorite meal. I cook a big one for everyone – bacon and eggs. I own a lot of eggcups.
I love film. After a yummy meal for the whole family and some truly great friends, we often go out to see something beautiful and unique.
As a parent, my fantasy is to cook every meal, read every story, do everything, and also work all day. I’m overly hard on myself.
The thing is, if you follow whatever meal you have with Coke, it eats up the other things. It helps with the digestion of it.
I don’t think it’s a Western thing to really talk about intrinsic motivation and the drive for autonomy, mastery and purpose. You have to not be struggling for survival. For people who don’t know where their next meal is coming, notions of finding inner motivation are comical.
The first meal that I learned to make was scrambled eggs.
I tend to avoid cakes made with matzo meal instead of flour. Also, most prepared dessert products and mixes. Sometimes the packaging they come in tastes better than the product.
My father was a lorry driver, very rarely at home. The house was run by my mother, and because there were 10 or so kids, there was no time for individual attention. It was about survival. It was about where the next meal was coming from.
My absolute favorite meal in Nashville is sweet-potato pancakes at Pancake Pantry.
Instagram is an app, it is not a realistic representation of anyone’s life – do not base your idea of what your body, hair, face, vacation, relationship or meal should be like according to what you see on it.
I know the joy of skating on a clear cold day. I know the joy of getting off a perfect drive in golf. I know the delight of a fine meal after a long walk. These are real and wholesome, but all of them put together can not approach the thrill of ridding yourself of fear!
Vash Young
I’m gonna be a character in a Happy Meal.
Claudia Christian
It’s never fun having to bulk up for a job on an action film, then lose weight for another role. I don’t actually mind working out, but it’s the diet: I’m half-French, so I love my food, and boiled chicken breast for breakfast is not my idea of a good meal.
Oliver Jackson-Cohen
After working for TV, you realise that the majority of the population still wonders where their next meal is coming from.
Terence Lewis
Music’s been around a long time, and there’s going to be music long after Ray Charles is dead. I just want to make my mark, leave something musically good behind. If it’s a big record, that’s the frosting on the cake, but music’s the main meal.
I find dates, in general, horrific. We have to sit there and ask these questions and pretend to eat a meal, and it just feels so stiff.
I can eat any soup, but it just has to have a nice taste. It’s like chocolate – if you eat a dessert at the end of the meal, you want the dessert to be perfect.
Tramping is too easy with all this money. My days were more exciting when I was penniless and had to forage around for my next meal… I’ve decided that I’m going to live this life for some time to come. The freedom and simple beauty of it is just too good to pass up.
Christopher McCandless
I’ve adopted that mentality: every day I do weights and core in the gym in the morning and train on the field in the afternoon. And I’m strict with my diet – I include protein in every meal and snack.
I love a good meal on a train, and if I’m travelling on a discount ticket, the challenge is to eat more than the price of the fare.
I wasn’t aware so many kids were lacking basic things like a hot meal at night and somewhere warm and safe to live.
The Gunnar Challenge offers new workouts every day, a m

The Gunnar Challenge offers new workouts every day, a meal plan and dailyverbal vitamins,’ which are a motivational video or workout tip. The thing that really makes the program work is the forum, where Challengers can communicate with each other and with me.
By continuing to redefine the cost structure in food, we think Munchery will eventually make getting a high quality chef-prepared meal delivered to your door less expensive than buying the ingredients to cook a similar meal yourself.
For many of us, Christmas lunch is the most special meal of the year – and I certainly want nothing but the very best for this celebration.
I like to have my hand on every single plate that goes out. It’s really a good feeling when someone compliments your meal, and you had everything to do with making it. It’s very rewarding.
Bill Dickey
The way to anybody‘s heart is through a thoughtfully-prepared, beautifully-executed, lovingly-presented meal.
Usually, I’ll have egg whites, turkey sausage, fruit, and oatmeal for breakfast. For lunch I’ll have some grilled chicken or a turkey burger with veggies, fruit and wheat bread. Between lunch and dinner it’s often a protein bar, and then my evening meal is pretty much the same as lunch.
I always have either nuts, Luna bars, or fruit in my bag. A pack of instant oatmeal is also good to carry because it’s a quick, nutritious meal you can make almost anywhere.
A meal is a when you eat something that incorporates multiple food groups.
I’ve never worked as much as I would’ve wanted to, and that’s why I end up doing a lot of stage as well, because stage is a full course meal.
A few decades ago, many people didn’t drink water outside of a meal. Then beverage companies started bottling the production of far-off springs, and now office workers unthinkingly sip bottled water all day long.
The two worst enemies of comedy are lack of sleep and not having had a decent meal.
Breakfast is the most important meal for me. I love porridge, which I have with water, and some fruit, usually raspberries or melon. And I drink hot water with lemon and green tea.
It is impossible to think of any good meal, no matter how plain or elegant, without soup or bread in it.
M. F. K. Fisher
It’s no secret – if you know me, have ever met me or have shared a meal with me – that I’m a passionate environmentalist.
I’m a bit of a wine snob and like a glass of Chateaux Margaux ’82 with a meal or to unwind.
Even if I’m gone all day, breakfast is the one meal I always cook for my kids. I make French toast, oatmeal, or an egg burrito.
I was raised Southern, where every meal had meat on table, but I don’t eat that way in life. I’ve been experimenting with a lot of vegetarian and vegan food.
All kids should be able to have healthy food to eat and should not have to worry about when their next meal will be.
My first meal when I wake up is five boiled eggs, egg whites, and a slice of whole wheat bread.
I gained a lot of weight when I got to college because my eating habits were bad (I was eating pizza and French fries at every single meal), and it was hard to deal with.
I have never cooked a meal in my life and always end up paying for dozens of people to eat with me.
When you reminisce, you don’t say, ‘Remember that time you got sued by so-and-so?’ No, you say, ‘Remember when we played here and it was unbelievable, and we went out for that incredible meal and that funny thing happened?’ Those are the important moments.
Flats are being sold for 1 lakh per square feet even though the poor can’t even afford one meal in the day. It’s an inhuman and insulting display of wealth, and I wanted my movie‘s title, ‘City of Gold,’ as well as the title song to reflect that.
I had a meal in Pizza Hut and the waitress told me I didn’t need to pay. So I decided to be a bit cheeky and ask for more pizza and garlic bread.
In corn, I think I’ve found the key to the American food chain. If you look at a fast-food meal, a McDonald’s meal, virtually all the carbon in it – and what we eat is mostly carbon – comes from corn.
The decline of the Sunday meal is a major concern because it means that family values are being forgotten. Once that creeps into mealtimes, it will begin creeping into other areas.
A kaiseki meal is like that, very small courses over a long period of time.
For a long time, I was an assistant in the NFL to George Allen, and George was paranoid that other teams were cheating on him… that they were offering bounties, that they were wiring our locker room, that they were putting food poisoning into the pregame meal of the other team’s stars, stuff like that.
I like to cook Indian food when I can. I find the process of creating a home-cooked meal to be unwinding.
He didn’t come out of my belly, but my God, I’ve made his bones, because I’ve attended to every meal, and how he sleeps, and the fact that he swims like a fish because I took him to the ocean. I’m so proud of all those things. But he is my biggest pride.
I do yoga every day, some sport, have a meal once a day, eat some fruit, and drink one glass of wine. And once a month I gather together my close friends. But my wife and I do not like conspicuous luxury.
Make dinner with the goal of stretching it out for lunc

Make dinner with the goal of stretching it out for lunch in the back of your mind. Making more of one thing is cheaper than buying more varied ingredients for each meal.
Quantity in diet is more to be regarded than quality. A full meal is a great enemy both to study and industry.
The reason why I hate working in theatre is the tedium of memorisation. But once that is done, then you feast on this never-ending meal. If you play it correctly, every night is fraught with very high stakes that are very difficult to find in everyday life.
My favourite meal is probably chicken with penne pasta and pesto.
When Marvin and I are on a date night, we keep our phones in our bags. If you’re out for dinner, enjoy it! I find it bizarre that you would pay for an expensive meal to just Snapchat through all of it.
There is a deliberate effort to undermine food culture to sell us processed food. The family meal is a challenge if you’re General Mills or Kellogg or one of these companies, or McDonald’s, because the family meal is usually one thing shared.
I have the life of Riley. I take my kids to school, do a bit of work in the afternoon, pick my kids up, microwave a meal, hang out with my kids, and work for a couple of hours.
Meals make the society, hold the fabric together in lots of ways that were charming and interesting and intoxicating to me. The perfect meal, or the best meals, occur in a context that frequently has very little to do with the food itself.
Clothes are like a good meal, a good movie, great pieces of music.
I definitely try to eat a healthy diet, but I am the first person to say I love unhealthy food. I would never tell you I don’t. I love fried chicken or mac and cheese. Do I order them all the time when I’m out at restaurants? No, though I do have one splurge meal a week.
Stir-fried spring vegetables over miso polenta is the meal equivalent of wanting it so badly to be spring yet recognizing it is 40 degrees outside with a brisk headwind no matter which way you are facing.
Always in my house, I have almonds, hummus, Triscuits, and cheddar cheese. It takes me back to childhood. My go-to meal would probably be pasta.
There’s no better way to treat your Valentine then with a delicious meal.
It’s very clear that there’s a lot of double standards going on. Should there be a 30mph speed limit? Of course there bloody should. And certainly with kids and school food, kids need to be nannied for sure. So give them a bloody good meal at school.
If we are ever to halt climate change and conserve land, water and other resources, not to mention reduce animal suffering, we must celebrate Earth Day every day – at every meal.
There is so much more than ingredients that go into home cooking. A home-cooked meal includes so much love and recipes that have been passed down through generations, and that is what I truly appreciate.
After the liberation of Bangladesh in 1971, primary education was made free. We are now thinking to make education in the public sector free up to graduation level. We are also thinking of providing a light meal at primary and secondary schools in order to increase the student retention level.
I meal prep when I’m traveling and make sure to have three solid, high-protein and low-carb meals a day with a few snacks in between. But I try not to be too hard on myself. At the end of the day, it’s all about having a healthy balance.
I tried therapy. This had never appealed to me. For me, it was a bit like a Chinese meal: very filling at the time, but then an hour later you’re hungry again.
What’s making this meal actually worth eating? I think of Bridgerton’ as a Happy Meal, but with secret vitamins put in there. It’s like a secretly healthy, organic burger.
I think anti-Semitism is the meal ticket of the organizations that fight it.
Arthur Hertzberg
I’m a big breakfast person: Eggs, bacon and yogurt is my go-to meal before a round. On the course, peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches are great for energy, but a protein bar works, too.
Lexi Thompson
I used to very politely say that if there is free will then it’s in all sorts of boring places, like whether you’re going to pick up this or that fork as you begin your meal. There really is none: It’s all biology.
I would have my last meal at my home in Oxfordshire.
For a two-job working family, a pressure cooker gets a meal on the table in seven to 15 minutes, start to finish.
If I go to a restaurant, other people stare. The meal is ruined.
You just don’t eat until you feel like you’re gonna throw up at every meal and all of a sudden the weight falls right off.
I hate greens. I hate vegetables, but greens – especially in a smoothie – are a great way for a big kid like me to hide my vegetables into the meal.
I like eating fish and the thing is when I’m on a shoot, quite often the fish that I catch are bigger than me. Although I have a very healthy appetite I could normally eat about a pound of fish in a meal. I can’t eat 100 pounds of fish or 200 pounds of fish.
Half the time on vacation, if I’m in a bikini, I allow myself – I eat, like, waffles and pancakes for breakfast, so that’s me after, like, a big meal. I’m not the one that’s like, ‘Oh my gosh, I’m going to be on the beach.’
The first posh meal out I had was on my 10th birthday.
In England and America people tend to graze all day lon

In England and America people tend to graze all day long, but I think it’s such a waste to be constantly picking at food because you then can’t enjoy a proper full meal when the time comes.
An ideal day for me is a combination of a fun-exciting creative moment with work partners, some laughs and games with my kids, a good surf session, and great conversation with friends around a meal.
If we have friends over for dinner, I do the cooking. I like the pressure of a big meal and the technical challenges of a roast.
If I eat a huge meal and I can get the girl to rub my belly, I think that’s about as romantic as I can think of.
I shall not miss the hectoring and backbiting and the lack of generosity towards fallen foes, but I will miss the sheer clubability of parliament. If one fancies a coffee or a meal or a drink then it is always possible to find at least one person out of 646 whose company is congenial.
Because its hard to realize now that that was the end of the great depression, you know. All of a sudden all of this is in front of me and I’m solvent, you know. I’m making some money and I know where my next meal is coming from, and I have a new pair of shoes and that’s it.
Robert McCloskey
For a dinner date, I eat light all day to save room, then I go all in: I choose this meal and this order, and I choose you, the person across from me, to share it with. There’s a beautiful intimacy in a meal like that.
When dressing a table take out your old pieces of silver, hand-me-down linens and old candelabras, it will make your meal that much more special.
For those of us who are lucky enough to not worry about where our next meal is coming from, it can be difficult to consider a life where the choice and supply of what you eat is extremely limited.
A slice of hot, buttered toast is the perfect meal. It’s not too much and not too little, and it gives you just the right buzz.
As a kid, I got three meals a day. Oatmeal, miss-a-meal and no meal.
I will be up at 8 A.M. making spaghetti bolognese for Peter and Sophia’s evening meal if I’m working that day. I may not get back for the evening, and I worry if I don’t do that, then they won’t eat anything.
The best meal at my restaurant is the whole right side of the menu.
If you live close to an International Rescue Committee office in the United States, find out how you can assist a refugee family as they transition to American life. Invite a newly arrived family to your home for a welcoming meal. Listen to their hopes and dreams, and share your own.
The Democratic party, respective to health care, is like a person who was sent into the store to purchase a gallon of milk and some butter for the evening’s meal and instead walked out with a ‘Gladiator‘ DVD, a can of Easy Cheese, and some Homer Simpson house slippers because how funny are they?
The more you put in your body, the more you have to regulate it with insulin. So later kickoffs, you’re talking about breakfast, lunch and a pregame meal, so that’s more food you’ve got to be aware of and what you put in your body. A noon game, light breakfast, a little fruit and some insulin, and I’m good to go.
Jay Cutler
I have friends who don’t even know I’m diabetic. I don’t hide it, but it’s the last thing I need to tell someone. I take my insulin with every meal and have kidney drugs twice a day, but that is, like, habit. That’s how I deal with it.
I have many memories of waking up to eat breakfast that my mother carefully prepared for us and her saying, what do y’all want for lunch, and as we’re eating lunch, what do y’all want for dinner? It’s always about the next meal.
My favorite meal would have to be good old-fashioned eggs, over easy, with bacon. Many others, but you can’t beat that on a Sunday morning, especially with a cup of tea.
I need to eat a large meal before I play, and the one thing that was kind of consistent in every single clubhouse at least in the minors was a roast beef sandwich. So that kind of stuck there, and it just kind of stuck in the big leagues as well.
As an athlete, you’re brought up with that mentality that you finish everything you start. If you’re going to start a meal, you’re going to finish it until the plate is clean. I had to change that mentality to one of where, ‘I eat until I’m full and leave the rest.’
When I am in situations where I break out of the pattern, it’s hard on me. Once you get used to regular scripture study, you miss it if you don’t have it. It’s like food – you have to have it. I know that I need the scriptures like I need food. I don’t miss a regular meal, and I don’t miss regular scripture study.
The critical part with meal spacing is that you stabilize your hormones so that you do not have those spikes in insulin that occur when you eat large meals.
Ian K. Smith
My favourite meal is penne carbonara – that’s good for an athlete, right?
Any celebration meal to which guests are invited, be they family or friends, should be an occasion for generous hospitality.
Zika is spread by mosquitos. They are tough to control. It will bite four or five people at one blood meal. They can breed in the amount of water it takes to fill up a bottle cap or, theoretically, even a drop of water. You have to get rid of maybe 90% of them or more before you protect people.
I figure it’s a European thing to eat cheese and crackers before a meal – that’s my afternoon snack, or I do it before dinner.
Making a good meal for someone, even if it is nothing complicated, is an expression of love: it is an invitation to share, for one dinner at least, in our common humanity.
Some people don’t have a home or a place where they can cook a warm meal, and so we’re thankful for the generosity of YG and the 4Hundred Waze Foundation to feed the community in the city of Compton.
After a game, after a week of eating right, eating clean, you feel like that’s when you deserve a nice cheat meal and basically hop on anything after the game.
Persian cuisine is, above all, about balance - of taste

Persian cuisine is, above all, about balance – of tastes and flavors, textures and temperatures. In every meal, even on every plate, you’ll find both sweet and sour, soft and crunchy, cooked and raw, hot and cold.
I’m not a snob. I can make a meal out of anything. I can eat anywhere.
Cara Buono
I don’t like feeling full when I start a game, so that’s why I have a bigger meal in morning or four hours before game.
I think breakfast is the one meal when you don’t have to eat animal, maybe.
My parents were out of town and sent me to stay at my grandma‘s house. That’s where I learned how to make pancakes. I served them to all the old ladies who lived on her block. After the meal, they each left a $5 bill next to their plates. I thought, ‘Hey, I’m onto something here.’
I try to bring a lot of water on the plane with me and eat a really good meal.
If someone said, ‘You’ve got to eat your next two meals at American fast-food restaurants,’ I would do one meal at Chipotle and one meal at Popeyes fried chicken.
I love hamburgers, but if you give me a hamburger for every meal, I’m gonna tire of it.
I like the creativity of planning a party, or cooking and taking care of people, creating a memorable meal or event.
When I’m home, I cook and try to eat really clean. I try to eat vegetables at every meal. I stay away from pasta and bread and have brown rice and potatoes instead.
If I have a preference, I’d rather have a home-cooked meal than go out to the fanciest place.
I was the meal delivery coordinator for Clarke County for Meals on Wheels.
Devising the menu for an intimate meal can be a thorny task. You want to make something your guy will go crazy for, but that usually means big and heavy. And feeling overly full kind of kills the mood.
My family always ate dinner at the table, and we would chat about our day while eating. My parents like to have a few glasses of wine and linger after the meal is over, peeling oranges for dessert while talking. It’s lovely.
Dessert is probably the most important stage of the meal, since it will be the last thing your guests remember before they pass out all over the table.
William Powell
I was raised by my grandparents, and they always made sure that I had a pencil and some paper, whether we were in the car or at a restaurant. While they were enjoying a nice meal, I would be sitting there drawing funny pictures of the waitress.
Jarrett J. Krosoczka
And, I believe that one of the most loving things you can do is prepare a meal for someone you love. None of which I know how to do!
During the day I force myself to at least eat some salads rather than rubbish, and a steak in the evening. In fact, I eat to basically satisfy my hunger. I hardly have the time to appreciate a meal, and I’m everything, but a gourmet.
In L.A., I get a meal delivery service called Diet Designs. I like a nice butter lettuce salad with some avocado, fresh grapefruit, shredded chicken breast and raw almond slices with a sesame vinaigrette dressing. I also love juicing and am kind of obsessed with it.
I eat a lot more now than I ever used to. I have taken a real interest in nutrition and believe in the difference that makes when fueling your body correctly. That means never skipping a meal and making sure that my diet supports my training needs.
I believe in doing yoga and do Vajrasana for 20 minutes after every meal. I also do cardio exercise to lose fat.
I can cook a five-course meal.
My food villain is salt. I’d love to be have the odd ready meal as a lazy treat, but some contain 33% of your salt intake! i just cant do it to myself!
Anytime you get traded, you are trying to figure out what freeways get you where, and where the meal room is, and where the locker room is, and you get yourself used to that.
What I miss the most is chatting with my friends and family and having a good laugh over a simple meal.
The most I ever ate? In one sitting? Maybe four big plates of fried chicken, biscuits, chitlins, gravy. Then dessert. Apple pie, sweet potato pie. My mother cooked that stuff, good Southern food, and when I was 300 pounds, I never missed a meal.
Bruce Smith
Whether you’re on a diet, or you’re looking for a go-to one bowl dinner recipe, salads should be thought of as crowd-pleasers, not a dreaded component of a meal.
If you are with people you truly love, then the simplest meal can feel so romantic.
Sure, if I had a choice I’d really prefer Jackie at home, waiting for me with a hot meal on the table. But I married a show business gal – we met when we were working in the old ‘Billy Barnes Revue’ and I went into that marriage with my eyes open.
I just don’t know when we all decided that if it doesn’t fit in a Happy Meal box, it’s not for kids. I remember flying monkeys in the Wizard of Oz, and I grew up watching Monty Python. I think that kids can handle a lot more than we give them credit for, especially when it comes to the absurd.
After having dispatched a meal, I went ashore, and found no habitation save a single house, and that without an occupant; we had no doubt that the people had fled in terror at our approach, as the house was completely furnished.
I love macaroni and cheese. I could eat it every meal o

I love macaroni and cheese. I could eat it every meal of the day.
Any free meal is a good meal, you know?
Joe Sakic
Never underestimate the power of being popular in pop culture. You have to be able to do something. You can have a good seat at the restaurant, but you still have to pay for the meal. Fame is important, but to be rich is more important.
The person I always enjoy having a meal with is Cilla Black. I might not see her for months, but then I’ll pick her up at her flat, and we’ll go to a restaurant, and it’s like I’ve seen her that morning.
We train in the mornings, and then I go home and rest or sleep, and usually I go for a meal with Abel of a night, as we’re the two with no family here, so we tend to hang around together.
Richard Gough
I work 14-hour days on-set, and when you go home to an empty apartment, the last thing you’re going to do is cook a meal. I eat cereal, eggs, or smoothies. That’s my routine.
As a family, we try and do at least one sit-down meal a day.
I make the money, and I don’t have to take the abuse some of the stars do, opening up their personal life. I can go into a restaurant, sit down, and have a nice meal without being harassed. Arnold Schwarzenegger can’t do that.
We’re always asked the same three questions. If we’re on our own we get, ‘Where’s your mate, then?’ If we’re in a car it’s, ‘Where’s your bike, then?’ And if you’re having a meal, we get, ‘You’re not cooking, then?’
The soldiers‘ last meal is generally served out about five o’clock in the afternoon, sometimes earlier; and a stretch of fourteen hours intervenes between then and breakfast.
Patrick MacGill
My idea of a good night has always been having a lovely meal and a proper conversation.
Kirsty Gallacher
I haven‘t got a problem with scrutiny. If it gets hot in the kitchen, don’t cook a meal. People should be able to criticise us – it’s completely appropriate.
Being a mom, I am even more inspired to really help make a difference. I can’t imagine what it would be like if my child didn’t have a meal to eat.
There’s a value to getting the meal on the table every night, and there’s a value to being an old-school kind of parent.
I do know what my first meal in the next world would be… Spaghetti Aglio e Olio, heavy on everything.
Going out for a meal, especially for young urbanites, is less about socialising over enjoyable food than about enjoying food as a way to socialise.
I remember my father, who was ‘somebody‘ in the synagogue, bringing home with him one of the poor men who waited outside to be chosen to share the Passover meal. These patriarchal manners I remember well, although there was about them an air of bourgeois benevolence which was somewhat comic.
Jacob Epstein
One in six people in the U.S. at some point each year don’t know where their next meal will come from.
When I was a child, we never began a meal without prayer. We thanked God for the food, for each other.
If I have a day off, I want to get on a plane and go to Paris! If I have a couple hours off work, I want to run to the market and make a four-course meal. I like to do things that are unexpected.
Ali Larter
My mother had a Spanish upbringing. She was an excellent cook. Everything was home-made. We didn’t eat food with smiley faces on it. My Mum passed away in 1994. I miss her. I miss her cooking. It would be nice to have a meal with her again.
The first meal my husband ever made me was a chicken curry. I have never tasted anything so delicious in my life.
When I was growing up, there were just the three channels, so as a nation we all sat down to the same meal at the end of the day. Now there’s been this explosion.
I like meat. I never miss it from each meal.
I have a real dog-like mentality, in that it’s like, ‘Where is my next meal coming from? Am I ever gonna eat again? Will I ever write another song again? Will anyone show up for tour?’ I think it comes from being really poor as a kid.
You can’t fake quality any more than you can fake a good meal.
I just wanted to give them the ‘Lost Jewelry‘ so they can say, ‘Yo, they get that’s mean.’ And then when I tell ’em, ‘Yo, that ain’t even the meal. Get ready for the meal!’ That’s when we ’bout to go crazy because the taste of the appetizer.
For a slim, sexy body, it’s important to eat protein every day – preferably at every meal. Be sure to ask about the origins of your meat, poultry and seafood. If you can’t afford organic, free-range meats, opt for natural poultry, pork, and beef that’s raised without antibiotics or hormones.
A delicious meal cooked by a colleague for many others nourishes not only the body but also the soul.
Well, I look at it like this: When you go to a restaurant, the less you know about what happens in the kitchen, the more you enjoy your meal. If the soup tastes good, everything’s cool, and you don’t necessarily want to know what’s in it. The same thing holds true with movies.
To give back during a holiday where it’s all about giving and being thankful – I’ve always been blessed to have a meal on my plate during Thanksgiving – and to spread that feeling to someone else’s family, it’s special. This is something that is truly important to me.

If it’s a cocktail party, I generally make five or six different things, and I try to choose recipes that feel like a meal: a chicken thing, a fish or shrimp thing, maybe two vegetable things, and I think it’s fun to end the cocktail party with a sweet thing.
If you look around the world, the countries with the best environmental practices are the wealthiest. There’s a reason for that. If you’re worried about where your next meal is going to come from or shelter over your head, your focus is on those things.
Breakfast was cornflakes. I tried to have at least something – it’s not really a cheat meal – but you eat some sugar in the morning and it gives you a lot of energy.

Whenever my husband and I order delivery from our favorite Lebanese place, the center of the meal isnt the chicken shawarma or the mixed grill for two – its the potent garlic sauce, toum.
In Ethiopia, food is often looked at through a strong spiritual lens, stronger than anywhere else I know. It’s the focal point of weddings, births and funerals and is a daily ceremony from the preparation of the meal and the washing of hands to the sharing of meals.
The big cheat meal will be a cookies and cream milkshake.
When most people think of raita, they imagine the cucumber-flecked two-ounce cups that tag along in every Indian takeout meal, but, just as with chaat and dosa, the term raita can apply to a wide variety of yogurt-based condiments.
Anytime I prepare a meal for my family, I am putting all of my time, effort, energy, and love into it.
I started preparing meals for my family when I was 12 because both of my parents worked, but I didn’t know that it was something I could make a career out of until I had my daughter and realized there were people out there who were interested in learning how to prepare a quick meal.
I like drinking wine. Since I travel a lot in the league, I like to sit down with my wife and have a meal and share a glass of wine. We’re exhausted, especially when our kids are acting crazy, but that cheers, that connection, is what wine is for my family and my friends. It’s a part of who we are.
I have a busy schedule and am constantly traveling so when I do have the time to grocery shop or prepare a meal, I make it a priority.
I still think it’s essential for a parent to cook with their children. Weighing out the ingredients and learning where the food comes from is educational, but it also helps to place meal times at the heart of family life. We never had dinner in front of the TV.
If I’ve been disciplined through the week, on Sunday I treat myself to mutton biryani. I can have up to one kg of it for a meal.
I’ve never cooked a great meal.
It was the greatest thing in the world getting fat. Every meal out was an event. Or we’d go to Italy and we’d have pasta, truffles, and dessert and then plan the next incredible meal. It was a happy-go-lucky time. I never had so much fun.
In the seventies when I was struggling, I ate the same thing every day at Big Nick’s Burger Joint on Broadway and 77th Street. A cottage-cheese omelette with tomatoes, French fries, rye toast, orange juice, and coffee. It was consistently the most satisfying meal I could possibly imagine.
Creating a meal for my friends and family, sitting together, eating, laughing and talking – that is when I am so happy. Oh my God, if you could see how much food I make – I am the original Jewish mother.
For a quick, healthy meal that’s also fun for kids, I serve fish tacos: soft tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, black beans and brown rice.
My favorite meal is I’ll make like a three-bean soup and I freeze half of it. But I’m also a big fan of meat alternatives, so I can still have my chicken and mashed potatoes and green beans, but I just have the chicken from a plant-based thing.
I think that’s all you do as an actor. You give ingredients for the edit, and the edit’s the stew, and they try to make a meal out of it. That’s all you are. You just throw things in. This is an idea, this is an idea.
I learned to cook when I was ten, and I could cook a whole meal for my family by thirteen – and I’m talking the chapatis as well.
Aagadu’ will be a very different film and it will be like a full meal to the audiences.
At my restaurants, we have training drills before every meal. We talk about what we did yesterday that was great and what we can improve today.
At fancy and expensive restaurants (say, $50 and up for a dinner), you can follow a simple procedure to choose the best meal. Look at the menu and ask yourself: ‘Which of these items do I least want to order?’ Or: ‘Which one sounds the least appetizing?’ Then order that item.
I love to cook. I’d hoped by now I’d have a big loft. I have this fantasy that between 12 and 4, if you’re in New York, it’s known that I’ll be serving a meal and you can just show up. You can watch TV, hang out, nap. Once a month. Wouldn’t that be nice?

I just remember one girl really getting me on the field and beating the holy crap out of me. I never to this day know why. And then people used to be funny because we were on welfare. People used to make fun of you. But I used to get school dinners so I thought it was great, I got a hot meal every day.
I am always very grateful that I do not have to rely for my meal on a nationalised dinner service working as well as the Post Office on strike day.
The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.
Mansa Musa never spoke in public, and whispered everything to an interpreter; he was also never allowed to be seen eating a meal.
Growing up, I had a lot of family members who worked in the Dallas Independent School District, and they shared stories firsthand with me about kids stepping into the cafeteria hungry before practice, or waiting for the school building to open the next morning just so they could get a meal.
Anything is possible on a train: a great meal, a binge, a visit from card players, an intrigue, a good night’s sleep, and strangersmonologues framed like Russian short stories.

I certainly didn’t grow up ever having to worry about where my next meal was coming from. The fact that so many people, even in our own country, worry about something so basic, it’s something I really wanted to help to do something about.
You have a lot of people on the run and really don’t have time to sit down and eat a balanced meal.
The problem is when that fun stuff becomes the habit. And I think that’s what’s happened in our culture. Fast food has become the everyday meal.
We lived near a supermarket, and whatever they threw away, we would get it, and my mother would make soup. Or she would get a big can of lard, a big can of meal, a big can of flour, a big can of beans, and fix the same meal for months.
It is only a man’s own fundamental thoughts that have truth and life in them. For it is these that he really and completely understands. To read the thoughts of others is like taking the remains of someone else’s meal, like putting on the discarded clothes of a stranger.
I always eat a meal at home before I leave for the airport, so I only eat the soup and salad on the plane.
The Greek side of me definitely loves a good meal, a lot of laughing, loud discussions.
Rita Wilson
You know, on the road, I never miss a meal. I eat five, six, seven times a day, depending on when I wake up and when I got to sleep. I never miss a training day. I always get my four days out of my seven.
I can drink 15 pieces of fruit in a day. Nobody is going to sit down and eat that. I drink about 48 ounces a day. That constitutes about 50 percent of what I eat. And then I have one meal a day, some protein. I restrict calories.
There are many people who are unable to eat even a single meal in a day and it is our responsibility to help in whatever way we can.
I can’t think of a specific meal, but my favourite country for food has got to be France. I love those restaurants in the middle of the village squares.
Giles Foden
My usual will be eating five boiled eggs, go into the gym, then eat my oatmeal, then get cracking with whatever press I have. I try to meal prep or get a meal prep company or buy a certain amount of meals throughout that day while I’m travelling.
Joivan Wade
When we’re playing at home in Utah, breakfast is really the only meal at which I allow myself to be a little unhealthy. So it’s usually pancakes, waffles, eggs, and bacon. I like to keep that consistent. For lunch and dinner, I will have Caesar salad.
I get satisfaction out of making a meal for people that I love and having them enjoy it. But there’s not really anything in my life that I do that’s just for me that feeds my soul like music does.
Creating a meal for somebody, it’s a way to show your love.
I like going to the cinema or theatre, followed by a meal and cocktails. I’m typically home by midnight; I used to be a raver but not now, unless I’m on the boys’ trips to Vegas, Dubai or Miami.
I believe in breakfast. It’s the one meal that my kids usually eat without a fuss, so that’s huge. As for myself, I can’t function without it, and I see it as a great way to get some healthy greens in, some coffee, and on a good day, maybe even some news of the world via the newspaper.
Samantha Bee
I wake at 5 or 5:30 most mornings, make myself a latte and grab a cookie, write until 10 or 11, go have my favorite meal, ‘second breakfast,’ or grab coffee with friends, or play basketball. Then, around noon, I begin apologizing via email for the manuscripts I can’t get to.
I was born to a single mother and often struggled to find my next meal. With the right opportunities from public education and mentors, I achieved the American dream.
Whenever I go out with a girl for a meal, I’m recognised, and I hear, ‘That’s Chad‘s girl,’ before anyone even approaches for a picture. I can’t take arrogance and rude behaviour, and I really get a lot of it.
Chad le Clos
I love food, but if I find a restaurant I like in a new city, I can eat every meal there, and sometimes I do… and even sometimes the same dish.
I lived in the streets for three years when I was a kid, and every day, I didn’t know where my next meal would come from.
Lunch is the meal where you put carbs in, such as lentils and beans.
I think, as a chef and restaurateur, that you have to take care of your business. Otherwise, you’re only as good as your last meal. You have to watch if your food costs are too high, or you could be out of business in no time.
Every meal I want to start with soup.
I eat pretty much the same thing on certain days. So Wednesdays, I’ll probably eat the same meal.
Food is the great connector, and laughs are the cement. If we go out to eat and have a nice meal, that’s one thing. If we can share a laugh, now we’re friends.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I definitely have a hearty breakfast before I do anything.
The secret ingredient to every meal is love. And also garlic.
The symptoms of food poisoning often don’t appear for days after the contaminated meal was eaten. As a result, most cases of food poisoning are never properly diagnosed.
I always ate healthy, but it wasn’t scientific. Now it’s a high-protein diet and no carbohydrates. I have more consistent energy, and I don’t get tired after a meal. It does take a very detailed meal plan.

I love to make a one-pot meal – think stir-fry but in the French Fricassee. I start with what takes the longest to roast and then add vegetables, fresh herbs, and starch until the meal is complete in one shot.
