Weird Meals That Famous People Had In The Past



A lot of people I know are pretty picky eaters when they are exposed to the few foods that their plates just cannot hold on to. And that includes me.
Personally, I admit that I have transformed so much considering how picky I was during my childhood, but I will still turn my nose away at anything too spicy, peas or any meal with a smallest slice of pork. I have pork and I cannot even tell you how much flack I can really get for hating pork, but it is actually due to the fact that I used to love it so much while I was a child, but thinking about it makes me sick to the stomach today. But someone's food might be someone's worst nightmare. There are even tribes and cultures around the world that consume what other people would even never want to touch. For example, there is a tribe in East Africa that feeds on grasshoppers. Actually it is one of their favorite dish and they like them so much. If you go to Thailand and China, you will be amazed about what people eat down there. Starting from dogs to bats, and even other small insects that you would never have imagined if someone would consume them.
It is entirely surprising to how our minds can react and evolve in accordance to over eating habits even after many years. These celebrities had their weird food quirks.
Some of their favorite food preferences are not surprisingly when it comes to pop culture, but there are some who had food preferences that might leave your stomach running.

But Ford went on to revolutionize his own meal as he came to a conclusion that the human body need many nutrients. All it needs is the bare requirements and that will enable it function, and that made Ford often dine on the weed and grass that he could just pull up from the side of the road or his backyard. I bet he learned from goats if he ever had one.

At the time he was studying at Cambridge University, Lord Byron was so worried about his weight, and he decided that he was going to dine only on potatoes, biscuits, apple cider vinegar and water. He made sure that his entire meal was covered in vinegar, and his method was a success as he was able to lose 60 pounds, hence it was one of the early methods to be adopted by celebrities who were looking for a way to shed off their weight.

His style became so famous and was regarded as being the most creative style in the twentieth century, as he not only developed and nourished a unique style but it was beyond its time.

During his life, Dali and his wife, Gala liked to gather their famous literary as well as artistic friends, and the couple went further to come out with a book that contained some of their bizarre dishes with meals like toffee with pinecones and frog pasties.
