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.
Liv Tyler
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.
Sheikh Hasina
I think breakfast is the one meal when you don’t have to eat animal, maybe.
Lena Dunham
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.
Ray Charles
I really like having someone who knows about food and what goes well together make a meal for me.
Alice Waters
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.
Vernon Davis
The key to a good meal is simplicity and the right seasoning.
Buddy Valastro
If I want to detox, I’ll do the juicing thing for sure. I’ll have two juices and then a solid meal for either dinner or lunch.

Brexit is turning out to be a really really bad meal. We ordered steak and chips and we’ve now got some raw chicken that smells bad.
Gavin Esler
My kids love old Hollywood movies and look forward to watching the Charlton Heston classic, ‘The Ten Commandments,’ every year. The retro special effects and over-acting are fun to watch and the story is a great reminder of our Jewish roots in the Passover meal.
Rachel Campos-Duffy
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.
Tyler Cowen
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.
Trisha Yearwood
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.
Donovan Mitchell
Pudding is my favourite part of any meal and I always have one if I can manage it.
Fiona Bruce
The fact is: America’s obsession with meat and dairy has pretty much destroyed our sense of taste. The average burger and milkshake meal is so overloaded with fat, salt and sugar that it has numbed our taste buds to virtually anything else.
Jane Velez-Mitchell
If you get just a bit of exercise in before every meal, you’ll really see a difference.
Jai Courtney
Going to the cinema or a meal can be difficult, with people asking for pictures or autographs.
Katie Taylor
Customers are more friendly when they’ve had a meal.
Tom Douglas
To me, breakfast is my most important meal. It’s often the meal you play a game on. I make sure I have oatmeal, milk, and fruit. It’s the fuel you use to hopefully do your best, so eating right is a big part of being a professional athlete. I wish I paid more attention to it earlier in my life.
Andrew Luck
I love macaroni and cheese. I could eat it every meal of the day.
Cobie Smulders
To follow my meal, I’d drink a glass of my uncle’s homemade apricot schnapps. He puts it in beautiful glass bottles and sells it at his local market in Austria. You don’t normally drink with Asian food, so this would be a fitting end to the meal.
Rachel Khoo
I enjoy healthy foods but I’m not scared to have a cheat meal or cheat day, have a burger or whatever.
Jimi Manuwa
David and I enjoy a relaxed meal around 8. We like to eat on the couch while we watch TV. Sometimes we channel-flip, but we also watch shows like ‘House of Cards,’ ‘The Crown,’ or ‘Game of Thrones.’
Lauren Bush
And if you had an, an opportunity to have a hot meal, you did. That was the cook. But you didn’t stop and say, This is dinnertime and Oh wait it’s five o’clock, it’s time to eat for supper.
I see groups that are hot one minute, and next time you see them, they’re asking if you want a soda with that Happy Meal.
Big Bank Hank
For me, a great meal is a collision of company, environment, ambient temperature, the waiters, where you are emotionally.

Maria Sharapova
Destroying rainforest for economic gain is like burning a Renaissance painting to cook a meal.
E. O. Wilson
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.
Anne Burrell
You can cut the fat from your spending: Stop taking taxis, call your cable company and ask for the same deal new subscribers get, have dinner at home and then a drink out instead of a $100 meal with wine.
Jean Chatzky
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.
Ainsley Harriott
My last meal on Earth? The obvious answer is a plate of my mother’s scrambled eggs.
Alex Guarnaschelli
Family is anybody you sit down to a meal with – and very often, after college, your family is your friends or the people you work with.
Laurie David
One of my favorite things to cook is fondue. I’m Swiss. It’s a great social meal.
Ryan Seacrest
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.
Eric Schlosser
Children drop out of school because they’re hungry. By providing a meal at school we have seen an increase in attendance.
Topaz Page-Green
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.
Christopher Columbus
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.
Gore Verbinski
The best dumpster meal I has was the first one I had.
Zal Batmanglij
I like quinoa. I like gingerbread. I feel they should be kept separate. I’m not in favor of this thing of making kind of raw, vegan chocolate cake and saying it’s as good as chocolate cake. I mean, just eat cake and be done with it. And then have a separate meal of quinoa.
Bee Wilson
Breakfast is my specialty. I admit it’s the easiest meal to cook, but I make everything with a twist, like lemon ricotta pancakes or bacon that’s baked instead of fried.
Hugh Jackman
I grew up with the norm being three meals a day. You wouldn’t dream of skipping a meal.
Tess Daly
As a kid, I got three meals a day. Oatmeal, miss-a-meal and no meal.
Mr. T
The only meal I have is dinner.
Elizabeth Hurley
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.
Alex Guarnaschelli
I wholly promote the omelette as a meal whatever the occasion, especially your last one.
Sam Heughan
We Georgians are really into food and drink. We would never have finger food at a party or a wedding – celebrations are always one long meal, on one long table, with endless toasts.
Katie Melua
After a day of writing, I love nothing more than to go into my kitchen and start chopping onions and garlic on the way to cooking an improvised meal with whatever ingredients are on hand. Cooking is the perfect counterpoint to writing. I find it more relaxing than anything else, even naps, walks, or hot baths.
Kate Christensen
One meal option is a piece of poached chicken the size of your fist with a green salad sprinkled with lemon juice, carrots, cherry tomatoes, cucumber, and celery. Another is a cup and a half of quinoa with minced veggies, all cooked at once so the quinoa absorbs the nutrients.
Anna Kaiser
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 don’t read a lot of magazines, but when I’m traveling, I’ll pick up a copy of ‘Vanity Fair’ to read on the plane – it’s like a full meal! The articles are so good, especially the crime stories. Browsing the Web is more like snacking – but I live on snacks.
Sam Trammell
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.
Konnie Huq
Every meal I eat, I be like, ‘Can I get some orange juice?’
Slim Jimmy
In French literature, you can choose a la carte; in Spanish literature, there is only the set meal.
Jose Bergamin
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.
Charles Bradley
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.
Daniel H. Pink
You can’t get AIDS from a hug or a handshake or a meal with a friend.
Magic Johnson
To me, working out is literally like eating a meal or drinking water or breathing.
Hilary Swank
Creating a meal for somebody, it’s a way to show your love.
Ayesha Curry
Buffalo rib-eye steaks, on the grill, is my favorite meal, seriously. It has less fat, more vitamins and more protein than beef. It is wonderful. Look, it was what the Indians ate, and they were very healthy. It’s very good meat.
Terry Crews
The cornerstone of every Persian meal is rice, or polo.
Samin Nosrat
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.
Joe Thomas
I spent a lot of my time working in the American module, and he would stay in the Russian segment working on his things, and we’d meet up at meal times. So it actually worked out very well.
Leroy Chiao
I enjoy a good meal, a good vacation, or a good movie, much as anyone else would.
Terence Tao
You want to try to keep your sleep and meal patterns attached to the time zone that you’re in. It’s important so you don’t feel disoriented. If we take a red-eye and land in Singapore at 8 A.M., we’re not going to bed. Force yourself to stay awake, have breakfast, power through the day.
Harley Pasternak
I eat healthier than you think. I eat grains and vegetables when I’m home – and I eat in courses. My wife, Lori, thinks it’s because I don’t want foods to touch. That’s not it. If you eat courses, you slow down your meal and eat less. It’s a trick I picked up in France as a kid.
Guy Fieri
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.
Michelle Obama
Clothes are like a good meal, a good movie, great pieces of music.
Michael Kors
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.
Abbey Clancy
Pregame, I eat pancakes for a meal. I always do mental visualization before the game to prepare myself. Postgame, I typically take ice baths.
Alex Morgan
If you keep eating McDonald’s, you gonna get sick. You need a real home-cooked meal. And I knew that that would be healthier. And that’s what Wu-Tang was: It was a home-cooked meal of hip-hop. Of the real people.
Dinner is a great first date. Don’t believe that stuff about girls not wanting to eat on a first date – sharing a romantic meal is so sexy.
Carmen Electra
Despite my strict, healthy diet when mired within my regular routine, when I venture in a explorative fashion for a meal, it’s all out, no-holds barred, dessert, and drinks, the whole nine.
Gabe Kapler
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.
Arthur Schopenhauer
A delicious meal cooked by a colleague for many others nourishes not only the body but also the soul.
Danny Meyer
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.
Ingrid Newkirk
My ultimate cheat meal, and my last meal if I was on death row, would be a roast dinner. I’m just such a Sunday roast fan. But I also want the dessert – I want the cheese board.
Rochelle Humes
Every morning, I have a coffee to wake up my system, but I don’t think you should eat just because it’s a meal time, so I often won’t have breakfast until late morning.
Anita Dobson
I love to cook a meal for the so-called holidays. You always need the turkey. I like making a good BBQ brisket as well.
Action Bronson
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.
Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
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.
Gary Lineker
For a quick, healthy meal that’s also fun for kids, I serve fish tacos: soft tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, black beans and brown rice.
Kim Raver
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
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.
Jaime Harrison
Potatoes are obviously a good source of potassium. Carbs, you’re burning off energy there. And salt, obviously. It’s not the breakfast or type of meal of champions, but there are quirky things for everybody.
Jason Hammel
I’m a bit of a wine snob and like a glass of Chateaux Margaux ’82 with a meal or to unwind.
Suzi Quatro
Oh, I’d say I like a meal as much as anybody. But I find a certain kind of foodiness silly, gluttonous and embarrassing.
Jonathan Safran Foer
By the time a meal I’m preparing rolls around, I’m usually so full from tasting that I’m not hungry any more.
Molly Yeh
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.
Gary Oldman
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.
Ashton Kutcher
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.
Trisha Yearwood
My favorite fall meal has to be a simple roasted chicken. Ina Garten does a fabulous one. There is just something about roasting your own chicken and vegetables that screams ‘fall’ and ‘home’ to me.
Chrissy Teigen
When you start one of these programs, school lunch programs, in a country that heretofore had nothing of that kind, immediately school enrollment jumps dramatically. Girls and boys get to the classroom with the promise of a good meal once a day.
George McGovern
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
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.
Robert Sapolsky
You don’t ask people about the immigration policies of the U.K. or their country’s agricultural policy. Instead, you talk to them about the meal they’re eating or their family, and from that you get the sense of another human being, someone we can all relate to.
Michael Palin
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and I definitely have a hearty breakfast before I do anything.
Mayer Hawthorne
My cheat meal is whatever I think about. One thing about me is whatever comes to my mind, if I want it, I’m going to eat it.
Yo Gotti
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.
Mandy Patinkin
The greatest meal of my life involved a Triscuit.
Jonathan Miles
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.
Pranitha Subhash
My absolute favorite meal in Nashville is sweet-potato pancakes at Pancake Pantry.
Taylor Swift
Nobody’s ever asked me to pay for a meal before I’ve eaten it, I’ve never been pulled over just because I was driving the wrong kind of car in the wrong kind of area at the wrong time of night.
Wentworth Miller
Corned beef and cabbage – that’s our favorite holiday meal when all the O’ Haras gather around the table.
Kelli O’Hara
I like meat. I never miss it from each meal.
Lee Min-ho
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
The Horny Toad in Cave Creek has great food. When I’m in Arizona, I have at least one meal there. I have a daughter who lives out there, and Dee Dee Wood, who was the choreographer on ‘Mary Poppins,’ lives out there. I still get out there once in a while, but not in the summer.
Dick Van Dyke
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.
Marv Levy
For my last meal, I’d want an Irish breakfast with soda bread and one of my dad’s omelettes with three or four eggs.
Erin O’Connor
I eat 230 grams of protein daily, 308 grams of carbohydrates, maybe 70 grams of fat. I can have one cheat meal a week but it can’t be that I eat until I’m stuffed; I eat until I’m satisfied.
Tyson Gay
I must have something sweet to round off every meal. Else, I can turn grumpy. It can be a small bite, but I must have it.
Zeenat Aman
I’m a girl who enjoys a great meal with great friends, so I’m not really that concerned about weight loss.
Jill Scott
For a meal out, my number one restaurant is Peter’s Inn. I first went there when it was an old biker bar. Believe me, when it was Motorcycle Pete’s, that was fun. I had my 30th birthday there.
John Waters
We can spend Rs 5,000 for a meal at the Taj and thousands on all kinds of shopping, but we’re always stingy about books. We always think of borrowing. Why? Writers can use some support. If you have space and money, you should buy your own books.
Sudha Murty
Aagadu’ will be a very different film and it will be like a full meal to the audiences.
Breakfast is a notoriously difficult meal to serve with a flourish.
Clement Freud
As a family, we try and do at least one sit-down meal a day.
Davina McCall
I’ve never made a meal that I wasn’t able to eat, but it that doesn’t mean anyone else would ever eat it, haha!
Adam Rippon
Do I post pictures of my overflowing laundry basket or the dirty dishes by the sink? No, I’ll probably post a pic of the finished meal looking pretty. We’re all skewed in what we show.
Alice Levine
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.
Lauren Bush
The mid-day meal is a well-intentioned scheme and has to be implemented effectively.
Pallam Raju
A box of spaghetti can take seven minutes to cook, and you can make a sauce at that time with perhaps garlic, olive oil, and zucchini. Then you’ve got yourself a complete meal. The whole thing shouldn’t take more than half an hour.
Lidia Bastianich
Some great soups are filling and warm. So, at the four o’clock hour, when people are craving caffeine and a cookie, soup is a really great option because it fills you up and feels like a meal, so it can keep you going until dinner, but it’s not hugely caloric.
Anna Kaiser
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.
Kelley O’Hara
After working for TV, you realise that the majority of the population still wonders where their next meal is coming from.
Terence Lewis
I’m a McDonald’s girl – several times a week. Usually the two-cheeseburger combo meal.
Nikki Cox
I love cooking vegan. Anybody can come in any time to any of our restaurants and get a vegan meal or a gluten-free meal as well.
Lidia Bastianich
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.
Melissa Leong
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.
Anthony Bourdain
Every day, families in Africa go without food and water, never knowing when their next meal might be; but we can change that if we all work together. In order to make a difference, every purchase of my new energy shot, Street King, will provide a meal for a child in need.
Curtis Jackson
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.’
Ashley Tisdale
The secret ingredient to every meal is love. And also garlic.
Michael Sorrentino
I always treat myself to one meal on Sundays when I can have whatever I want. Usually it’s pizza, which is my favorite indulgence.
Beyonce Knowles
One cheat meal once in a while is fine as long as you stay on track the rest of the planning. I had five really good meals today, one cheat meal.
Hafthor Bjornsson
Heartbreak is a luxury in my opinion. In a lot of places in the world there’s no time for that. People are worried about how they’re going to get their next meal. There’s no time to cry over someone.
Julia Fox
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.
Sohla El-Waylly
I definitely live to eat. I love food in every way imaginable, and it does not have to be fancy. Whether we stay in or go out, I like a hardy meal. My grandmother taught me how to cook, and it was all about no fuss and lots of it.
Bill Rancic
My ideal meal varies, depending on the time of year. Lobster on a deck overlooking a beach at sunset is one – but all my kids have to be there, because they are all lobster-lovers. Making a bolognese sauce over pappardelle for my husband on a winter evening, because he loves my bolognese sauce and it’s his comfort food.
Amy Bloom
When I was a child, we always had wine on the table, no matter how simple the meal. The wine had no special identity; it was just ‘the wine,’ from the cellar cask. The rules were general: white with the first course, red with the main course.
Jacques Pepin
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.
Maneet Chauhan
Well, I think that when I perform on the road I always thank the audience for buying a ticket because it’s a big deal to buy a ticket for a live entertainment, get a baby-sitter and pay for the meal, the parking, whatever.
Kathy Griffin
Wooing the press is an exercise roughly akin to picnicking with a tiger. You might enjoy the meal, but the tiger always eats last.
Maureen Dowd
I enjoy spending time at home or going out for a quiet meal in a restaurant.
Jamie Redknapp
I truly think you can get a great meal in most cities around the world now. I credit the internet for making it possible for a kid in Iowa to see what a great chef in Paris is doing and emulate it.
Philip Rosenthal
My diet consists of a lot of salads – I liberally include a lot of fruits and vegetables in every meal.
Suhasini Mulay
I think you live a fuller life with someone else, you know, you’re firing on all cylinders. It can be a nightmare at times, we all know that, but nevertheless in the end I think to have someone else’s input on anything – a book, a meal, your children, life, a walk – is fantastic.
Francesca Annis
Cooking is about presenting flavors and other aspects of food in a way that makes best use of them and makes an engaging, satisfying meal. Taste necessarily comes into it along with technique. Some ingredients require cooking, cleaning or otherwise denaturing them, some are fine as they are.
Steve Albini
I once attended a birthday party where Danny Kaye dropped in to entertain the birthday boy and his guests; I was sometimes taken for lunch on Saturdays by my father to The Brown Derby; and my favorite meal is still the Cobb salad in the Polo Lounge of the Beverly Hills Hotel.
Michael Korda
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
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.
Tom Baker
I don’t stop eating when I’m full. The meal isn’t over when I’m full. It’s over when I hate myself.
Louis C. K.
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.
Michael Portillo
I don’t overeat. I only eat one meal a day… but my body has been one of those that has almost perfect assimilation, so everything I eat is assimilated, not lost.
Raymond Burr
I’m not a big turkey fan, but my husband loves it. Thanksgiving is his favorite meal.
Ruth Reichl
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.
Ina Garten
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.
Sophia Bush
When we sit at the table, there is more going on than satisfying hunger. It is sad to think of those who eat simply to satisfy their hunger and who do not permit themselves to linger under the many spells offered by a good meal – the satisfaction of our hearts, our minds and our spirits.
Leo Buscaglia
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.
Michael Nutter
I’m not the number-one fan of the heavy holiday meal. And also, I didn’t grow up eating them, the traditional Western holiday meals, so it’s just not something I have a nostalgic relationship to.
Samin Nosrat
Just because one likes to cook up a great meal or decorate their home doesn’t mean they have to do it with granite counter tops and duck a l’orange.
Nadia Giosia
Some of my closest friends are Angelo Ogbonna, who’s Italian, and Pablo Fornals who is Spanish. His English is good but is not proper. There’s enough for me to understand what he’s got to say and we can go out and have a meal and be able to speak to each other through it so it is quality.
Michail Antonio
I’m kind of fine with running around during the day and not sitting down and having a meal and just snacking, snacking, snacking until night when I can just focusing on having a meal.
Hilaria Baldwin
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.
Kirstie Alley
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.
Richard Belzer
Eating well is really important to me. That means having balanced meals, never missing a meal, never skipping a meal, having a balanced diet, and never doing anything extreme.
Lizzie Armitstead
There are restaurants you can go in and pay $100 a person for a meal. I get as much satisfaction out of paying $25.
Chuck Feeney
I still think the best classic meal in New York is a coffee-shop breakfast – you sort of can’t skip it.
Adam Gopnik
The superior man does not, even for the space of a single meal, act contrary to virtue. In moments of haste, he cleaves to it. In seasons of danger, he cleaves to it.
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.
Gabrielle Reece
I used to have a routine where I would eat a meal during the World Series of Poker. I would play, they would call it a day and I would go work out. I would always order poached salmon with mushrooms and I would dip the salmon into a side of ranch dressing.
Phil Hellmuth
I’m not a snob. I can make a meal out of anything. I can eat anywhere.
Cara Buono
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.
Rege-Jean Page
I don’t sign autographs when I’m out for a meal or out with my kids. I think that’s rude and disrespectful. I would never ask anyone for an autograph while they were eating dinner; that’s what I was taught by my parents.
Tim Howard
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. When you feed yourself what your body needs when it needs it, that’s love. So give your bod some TLC and sit down and enjoy a good, substantial breakfast.
Kathy Freston
I love pancakes, and I actually do love healthy stuff. Like, I love gluten-free or whole-wheat pancakes. Breakfast is my favorite meal.
Ashley Tisdale
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.
Masaba Gupta
I want people to afford eating delicious, mushy, yummy burgers and not have to pay $17 for a meal.
Jonathan Cheban
Go far – too far you cannot, still the farther. The more experience finds you: and go sparing. One meal a week will serve you, and one suit, through all your travels; for you’ll find it certain.
John Fletcher
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.
Jean-Georges Vongerichten
Anything is possible on a train: a great meal, a binge, a visit from card players, an intrigue, a good night’s sleep, and strangers’ monologues framed like Russian short stories.
Paul Theroux
There’s a certain safety net that you find in the military that, as dangerous as it is, you know they’re going to provide you a meal and a home no matter what happens.
Liz Carmouche
Fame is like caviar, you know – it’s good to have caviar but not when you have it at every meal.
Marilyn Monroe
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.
Gene Simmons
Doing a movie is like eating five hundred canapes at a cocktail party – you’re never really full. You don’t feel as though you’ve eaten a meal, and yet you can’t eat any more.
Walter Matthau
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.
Ryan Gosling
Munchery is a full stack, end-to-end meal provider that specializes in delivery. It isn’t a restaurant, and it isn’t a delivery service.
Shervin Pishevar
One of the things that helps my vocal health immensely out on the road is stopping all my eating/drinking at least four hours before I go to bed. I actually set a timer after my last meal so I can’t cheat. This is to prevent acid reflux when I lay down in my bunk at night.
Lzzy Hale
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.
Jesse Spencer
I love soup ’cause I don’t like to cook. It’s so easy to prepare, and it fills you up and gives you all the nutrients you need. It’s a well-balanced meal, but you don’t have to do a lot of preparation.
Carrie Ann Inaba
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.
Hilary Farr
Real connection and intimacy is like a meal, not a sugar fix.
Kristin Armstrong
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.
Rob Gronkowski
My most memorable meal is every Thanksgiving. I love the food: the turkey and stuffing; the sweet potatoes and rice, which come from my mother’s Southern heritage; the mashed potatoes, which come from my wife’s Midwestern roots; the Campbell’s green-bean casserole; and of course, pumpkin pie.
Douglas Conant
The Food Stamp Challenge, which challenges higher-income families to live as if they are on food stamps, estimates that a person on food stamps has a budget of about $1.25 per meal. In other words, a family on food stamps must buy an entire meal per person for less than the cost of an average cup of coffee.
Elizabeth Flock
I don’t know what my Death Row meal would be. I’m surprised that people can even eat when they’re on Death Row.
Eddie Murphy
In my early days in school, I had no shoes, no school bags. There were days I had only one meal… I walked miles and crossed rivers to school every day. Didn’t have power, didn’t have generators, studied with lanterns, but I never despaired.
Goodluck Jonathan
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.
Samin Nosrat
I love anything paneer! Our family favorite, however, is ‘Dal Dhokli,’ a quintessential Gujarati dish of bread dumplings and lentil soup. That’s the big meal of the week typically prepared by my mother on Sundays.
Sunita Williams
No one in my family plays music. But since I was very little, I would go around the house singing and dancing. And when I was 8, my parents asked me to get up and sing something at a family meal. I had my eyes closed, singing – la la la la la – and when I opened them, the whole family was crying.
I love my wife dearly, and, therefore, I’ve never cooked a meal, romantic or otherwise, for her.
Steve Carell
I cannot finish a meal if I do not have a good dessert. But when I say good, I mean it has to be really good. And it’s usually small stuff – a piece of candy, crepes, some apple cobbler. No cake.
Boban Marjanovic
My last meal on Earth, I would love it to be a bowl of blueberries with cold cream.
Rene Redzepi
Most people don’t know I have a weird pregame meal. I’m picky, so all I eat are grapes and a hamburger with nothing on it. I get the meat, the bun – that’s it.
John Wall
Gravy is the simplest, tastiest, most memory-laden dish I know how to make: a little flour, salt and pepper, crispy bits of whatever meat anchored the meal, a couple of cups of water or milk and slow stirring to break up lumps.
Dorothy Allison
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.
Carol Drinkwater
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.
Henry B. Eyring
I believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, if you don’t have a good breakfast, then what are you going to do with the rest of your day. I get scared when I don’t have a good breakfast!
Maisie Williams
For busy young adults, the lure of meal substitutes is simple – it’s all about convenience – the level of effort to open a bottle or package is minimal, and the time from thinking you’re hungry to eating is almost zero.
Steve Blank
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.
Jeffrey Wright
A typical Sunday meal will be brunch at 11 A.M. I’ll probably do muffins, proper scrambled eggs and sweetcorn fritters, which the kids love. Kedgeree’s another thing I like, and if any of the West Indian family are over, definitely ackee and saltfish.
Ainsley Harriott
I want to be a successful actor, never a famous star. Because one is an organic meal that will sustain you, and the other is toxic.
Zawe Ashton
Any celebration meal to which guests are invited, be they family or friends, should be an occasion for generous hospitality.
Julian Baggini
I have never cooked a meal in my life and always end up paying for dozens of people to eat with me.
Rufus Wainwright
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.
Dakota Fanning
Definitive statements get people riled up, which is why I usually moonwalk away from them, but here goes nothing: You cant eat a South Asian meal without raita. Raita is the savory yogurt condiment thats served alongside everything – from Pakistani lamb biryani to Bengali shami kebabs and South Indian okra stir-fry.
Sohla El-Waylly
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
Make a stir-fried rice dish with some cut-up chicken and any vegetables folded into the rice for a ‘one pot’ meal lunch that has it all – protein, starch and vegetables.
Alex Guarnaschelli
When I don’t have a girlfriend, who I am answerable to, I can go out and hang with people. But whether you go for a movie with someone or a meal or a drive, it is assumed that you are dating that person.
Shahid Kapoor
Sharing the same meal reaffirms kinship.
Deng Ming-Dao
The notion of getting pleasure from food has gone too far; we can also get pleasure from anticipating a meal, and from not being quite sated.
Giles Coren
Even if some of us daren’t admit it to ourselves, we are all a little conscious of Christmas weight gain. The trouble for foodies like myself is the best way to socialise is over a meal.
Rachel Khoo
My last meal? The food would be much less significant than the company.
Mario Batali
To make my meal, I go to the market and to the garden, and then I decide what I’m going to do. That’s a great pleasure.
Alain Ducasse
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.
Kathy Freston
What I miss the most is chatting with my friends and family and having a good laugh over a simple meal.
Kim Yuna
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.
Rachel Nichols
For me, brunch is such a versatile meal since you can play on both the sweet and savory in your dishes.
Marcus Samuelsson
I remember as a little boy I ate one meal a day and sometimes slept in the street. I will never forget that and it inspires me to fight hard, stay strong and remember all the people of my country, trying to achieve better for themselves.
Manny Pacquiao
I don’t think I’ve ever missed a meal.
Daisy Lowe
I have a mantra in my head that there will always be another meal. I can put my fork down, knowing there will be good things in my future!
Gail Simmons
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.’
Michael Strahan
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.
Carson Palmer
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
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.
Aja Brown
When I was a child, we never began a meal without prayer. We thanked God for the food, for each other.
Jacqueline Woodson
Living on the road can make you feel quite displaced. Cooking a meal on the tour bus for everyone makes it home.
Grace Potter
Before a game, I avoid having a heavy meal so that I don’t feel sleepy at the board. You eat to be healthy, and that generally takes care of everything. Also, you can’t be too finicky, since at tournaments you tend to eat at restaurants here and there. But, as long as you’re eating sensibly, it’s all good.
Viswanathan Anand
My favorite meal would be a big piece of steak with salad and then Brussels sprouts and Jerusalem artichokes.
Joanna Coles
To grow a tomato or a pepper and prepare a meal from your labor and care is primordially satisfying.
Nell Newman
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.
Lee Byung-hun
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.
Milla Jovovich
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 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.
Rochelle Humes
The big cheat meal will be a cookies and cream milkshake.
Laurie Hernandez
‘J’eet jet?’ is still the standard way for a Pittsburgher to ask if you’re ready for a meal, but the meal itself is no longer limited to chipped ham and an Iron City beer.
Bill Dedman
For me, meal prep is about doing the work when you have the time, which is usually on the weekend.
Damaris Phillips
I never cooked before I became vegan. Preparing a meal as opposed to ordering in all the time, you start thinking about where your food comes from and how it gets to your table. You notice that chain.
Robin Quivers
You can’t have a good Thanksgiving meal without a little bit of ketchup on the side.
Patrick Mahomes
Every meal should end with something sweet. Maybe it’s jelly on toast at breakfast, or a small piece of chocolate at dinner – but it always helps my brain bring a close to the meal.
Robert Irvine
My favourite meal is penne carbonara – that’s good for an athlete, right?
Leroy Sane
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.
Suzanne Somers
Lunch is the meal where you put carbs in, such as lentils and beans.
David Kirsch
If I have a preference, I’d rather have a home-cooked meal than go out to the fanciest place.
Darby Stanchfield
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.
Gwyneth Paltrow
The first meal that I learned to make was scrambled eggs.
Laurie Hernandez
Quantity in diet is more to be regarded than quality. A full meal is a great enemy both to study and industry.
Samuel Richardson
Meal prep is so important and I do it once a week.
Eric Adams
I really don’t have a favorite meal. I eat anything.
Usain Bolt
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.
Harley Pasternak
Nando’s is my pre-match meal. I have the butterfly chicken, mash and coleslaw.
Fallon Sherrock
Art shows us that human beings still matter in a world where money talks the loudest, where computers know everything about us, and where robots fabricate our next meal and also our ride there.
John Maeda
I listen to everything: noise, classical, jazz. I like lots of different types of food. There’s no way you could get me to eat the same meal everyday, so why would I do the same with music?
Samuel Ervin Beam
I love cooking. There is nothing I like better than going home and cooking my family a nice meal. Anything with pasta! Pasta with butter! I have a good repertoire, and I can do quite a few different dishes. Sometimes they work out and sometimes not.
Eden Hazard
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.
John Lennon
I have found that most meal plans will work, simply because it causes us to become more aware as we eat.
Mandy Ingber
The poverty one still sees in America today is more shocking to me than anything I have seen in Ethiopia or Calcutta or Manila, and has made me, as someone living in a society of great wealth and someone who’s never had to worry about the next meal, think seriously about what universal responsibility really means.
Pico Iyer
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.
Anthony Bourdain
I don’t have a perfect meal on the table most nights. Any night!
Catherine Reitman
One meal I’m constantly reminded about is when I ate kangaroo tail in the desert in Australia; it wasn’t necessarily my favorite, but I will always remember it.
Rob Machado
I was raised on T.V. dinners because in those days, they were considered a well-balanced meal. And when I was sick, my mother fed me beef-barley soup and peanut butter sandwiches. That’s about it for childhood food memories.
Lindsay Wagner
Scents evoke very, very powerful memories, whether it’s the scent of someone that you know and someone that you love, or if it’s a meal that your mother made.
Blake Lively
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!
Ella Woodward
It’s not like I’m out eating McDonald’s and Del Taco every night. I eat good: my mom fixes dinner every single night – baked chicken, fish – she cooks a great meal every single night.
Bryce Harper
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.
Mahesh Manjrekar
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.
Stephen Hough
Cooking, to me, it’s kind of therapeutic. It’s completely different from music as well. I’m not amazing at it, but I can cook myself a good meal. And I’m not just saying this, but anytime I’m on the bus or at home, I’m watching Food Network or cooking on TV just ’cause it’s interesting to me.
Phillip Phillips
I believe that anyone can cook a great meal. Basically all you need to do is get your hands on some fresh ingredients and not be afraid to make a mess in the kitchen.
Nadia Giosia
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.
Ken Berry
There’s no reason that we need to be counting things and adding things up in order to sit down and eat a meal. I enjoy eating so much; I don’t want to do match every time I eat. I guarantee you, maybe your diet soda has no calories, but it’s still poison. We have to think about what are we putting in our mouths.
Rory Freedman
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.
Rory Bremner
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
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.
Danny Meyer
Life is all about balance, and there are certain times of the year – birthday, anniversary, holidays – that are meant to be enjoyed without guilt. That being said, Thanksgiving is a meal – it’s not a Thanksgiving day, and it’s not a Thanksgiving week.
Harley Pasternak
I love Japanese food – it’s a really healthy way of cooking and it is very easy: I often just steam the vegetables and fish together, make a space for the noodles, and I have a great healthy meal in 15 minutes.
Jos Buttler
I don’t drink soft drinks. I remember someone saying to me that having a soft drink with a meal is like having two meals.
Rebecca Breeds
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
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.
Donald Driver
Whatever hardships there have been in my life I still live in a very privileged position. Fear is not knowing where your next meal is coming from. Fear is seeing a child get hurt. Fear is watching someone you love waste away. Fear is knowing you are going to die yourself. But there’s no fear in what I do. I write books.
James Frey
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.
Ben Domenech
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.
Elif Batuman
If eating out, order your meal and ask the server to wrap up half of the portion to take home with your for the next day, keeping your portion size in check, and stretching your dollar into two meals.
Cat Cora
For me, I don’t expect to have a really amazing meal each time I dine out. Having a good meal with your loved ones – that’s what makes the experience.
Wolfgang Puck
I’m sort of getting into the idea of nourishing your inner aspect and doing that by investing in your family and making a meal and creating time together.
Gwyneth Paltrow
In a world where so much happens through computer screens, making a meal by hand, touching the raw materials, feeling your way through a recipe, tasting, adjusting, engaging all the senses, can be a soothing release.
Carl Honore
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.
Warren Cuccurullo
I hate restaurants that play music. You come out for a quiet meal, and you’re supposed to put up with all this booming. Why? It’s madness!
Peter Capaldi
My first meal when I wake up is five boiled eggs, egg whites, and a slice of whole wheat bread.
Romeo Santos
The best meal at my restaurant is the whole right side of the menu.
Junior Seau
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
The French take their festive platters seriously and spend lavishly on them. Christmas Eve, rather than Christmas Day, is when they tuck into the big family meal known as Le Gros Souper or Le Reveillon. Traditionally, it was served after the return from midnight Mass.
Carol Drinkwater
My advice is before a big ride, eat a meal 2 hours or so before, to allow you to digest and process it, and without being crude, try to get to the toilet before.
Chris Hoy
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.
Rod Stewart
The wall at Le Philosophe is covered with French philosophers, and supposedly, if you are able to name all of them, they will pay for your meal. I was only able to identify Simone de Beauvoir, Sartre, Descartes and, I think, Foucault. And, I think, Luce Irigaray.
Caterina Fake
Thanksgiving is America’s favorite holiday because it’s a time when we put aside our cares, much as the struggling Pilgrims did nearly four centuries ago, and eat a gut-busting meal without worrying about the ‘out years.’
David Ignatius
There is no conflict between a better meal and a better world.
Rene Redzepi
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.
Lennon Parham
I think, for me, I really looked at nutrition, talked to some people who knew a lot about nutrition, looked at different meal plans… calorie intake and what I was trying to do. I started slowly. I didn’t start as a ‘diet.’ I started as a lifestyle change.
Big Show
I wake up in the morning quite excited by the notion that I get to immediately have a meal. That’s the thing that gets me out of bed – just the thought of having a poached egg, or even some granola.
Tim Minchin
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.
Calvin Trillin
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
Poyha is a venison dish handed down from the Cherokee tribe. You can think of it as a meatloaf, which it is, or as a skillet of cornbread that some venison sneaked into, which it also is. Either way, it’s a simple and satisfying meal.
Jonathan Miles
The main environmental challenge of the 21st century is poverty. When you don’t know where your next meal is coming from, it’s hard to consider the environment 100 years down the line.
Bjorn Lomborg
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.
Sheena Easton
When I was younger I remember rushing back and cooking a meal for the family, and never thinking about having a nap between the shows!
Rosemary Harris
When a team has to work over a weekend, make a high priority of being there as well, even if it’s just to stop by and buy them a meal to show your appreciation.
Scott Weiss
When I am done with this meal you can have my life. It is heaven.
Paul Prudhomme
I do think, with any beat, it helps to establish a basic level of comfort and cordiality, especially if you plan to ask uncomfortable questions. Sitting down in person for a meal or a coffee can help that.
Amy Chozick
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.
Lauren Alaina
I could never just look at a meal as a time to refuel. For me it’s an opportunity to accomplish something. To connect, to teach, to share values.
Laurie David
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.
Ann Widdecombe
Slavery is no more sinful, by the Christian code, than it is sinful to wear a whole coat, while another is in tatters, to eat a better meal than a neighbor, or otherwise to enjoy ease and plenty, while our fellow creatures are suffering and in want.
James Fenimore Cooper
I was the meal delivery coordinator for Clarke County for Meals on Wheels.
Fred Schneider
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
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.
Pia Wurtzbach
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.
Seth Rollins
I would serve a selection of cakes, scones, and small sandwiches for afternoon tea. High tea is usually served between 5 P.M. and 6 P.M., replacing an evening meal – it is more substantial.
Mary Berry
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 obesity problem among children is very serious. When advertising budgets are big and business can corrupt the way we live so that it becomes the norm to snack all day – and if you are never hungry you are never going to feel like eating a healthy meal – that can’t be right.
Prue Leith
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.
Mary Berry
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.
Sohla El-Waylly
When we say, ‘We are starving,’ we have to remember that there are people who are literally starving. If everyone fed one person, one meal, we could make a huge difference.
Tina Knowles
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.
Nigella Lawson
I despise wasting a meal.
Gabe Kapler
I’m very prescriptive about my routine. Almost nothing changes: I have the same meal – pasta with Bolognese sauce – between shows; the person who dresses me stands on the same side every time; I take the same route to the stage. I’m very OCD about these things, as most actors are.
Douglas Hodge
The best meal I’ve had was in Tavarua, an island in Fiji. It was just before sunset. A bunch of guys had just caught all this yellow fin tuna; they literally brought this huge wooden table down to the sand, pulled the tuna from the boat, dropped it on top of the table, pulled the skin off and sliced the tuna up.
Rob Machado
I learned that the hardest party to pull off successfully is Saturday night dinner. This meal is expected to be elaborate: appetizers, first course, dinner, dessert, and coffee. People arrive at 7:30 or 8 p.m. and stay for hours – definitely past my bedtime – and they all go home exhausted.
Ina Garten
I just like doing normal things, going to the shops in Manchester, getting a meal with my girlfriend and kids, going to the cinema. I love Las Vegas and there places, but I couldn’t live there.
Michael Bisping
I’m not opposed to a fancy meal, but I’ll take a picnic any day… food and nature? Sign me up.
Ryan Paevey
I wasn’t aware so many kids were lacking basic things like a hot meal at night and somewhere warm and safe to live.
John Bishop
There are many things to admire about Japan but this is the one thing I love the most and probably the only time I eat breakfast. Fish, eggs, soup, salad, veggies; all in the tiniest bites. It’s a full meal, but it’s so refreshing.
David Chang
My favorite meal to make is seared ahi, and my wife does the most amazing pear salad.
Joel Parkinson
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.
Stanley A. McChrystal
After my first movie was released, my wife and I went Bouley. A fantastic meal. The whole thing, getting dressed up, acting very adult-y, a lot of fun.
Chris Eigeman
I always feel like the editing room is like coming into the kitchen. What kind of a meal do you make from there? It can be anything.
Brit Marling
If I go to your home, and you’re cooking me a meal, I will eat whatever you put in front of me.
Bryan Fuller
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 love fantasizing about what my next meal is going to be; it’s probably my favorite topic of conversation.
Antoni Porowski
My mother is most attached to my brother because she has the feeling that she could not provide him anything. By the time I was born, at least I got a meal and a half a day, but he sometimes got only water.
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.
John Redwood
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.
Daniel Boulud
The federal government spends about $2.51 per child per day to feed them lunch. Out of that, you have to pay for labor, facilities, and administrative costs, leaving about a dollar for food. Imagine trying to feed yourself a nutritious meal every day with only a dollar. Very difficult.
Jose Andres
Sitting down to a meal with an Indian family is different from sitting down to a meal with a British family.
Roland Joffe
A gourmet meal without a glass of wine just seems tragic to me somehow.
Kathy Mattea
Being at meal time on time is simple but important for the team. You need the discipline. Every top club is like that. With Arsenal and Villarreal it was the same – strict.
Robert Pires
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.
Marcus Samuelsson
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.
Brandi Cyrus
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.
David L. Wolper
For my 16th birthday, my family took me to L’Auberge de L’Ill, which was family-run but had three Michelin stars. It was a revelation. After that meal, I realised this is what I want to do.
Jean-Georges Vongerichten
Cooking with a cast iron skillet is great because it can also be used for presentation! Simply prepare a delicious meal within it and display it on the table for all to enjoy.
Rachel Hollis
In theatre, there’s no time for a proper meal.
Tamsin Greig
My go-to meal is soft-boiled eggs with toasty squares.
Ashlan Gorse Cousteau
On my 50th birthday in 2005, my discount-wielding AARP card came in the mail. I hurled it in the trash, put on something fabulous, and had a decadent meal. Just the thought of putting it in my wallet felt like a concession.
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.
Sheherazade Goldsmith
What’s your routine after attending a networking event or meal? If your answer is, ‘I go home,’ you’re probably going to miss out on opportunities.
Lewis Howes
A meal can be an erotic experience in itself.
Alex Comfort
The first meal my husband ever made me was a chicken curry. I have never tasted anything so delicious in my life.
Lesley Nicol
I grew up poor in San Pedro, California, sleeping on the floor of shady motels with my five siblings and not always sure when or where I’d get my next meal.
Misty Copeland
I used to dream about being able to sit at a table with another human being, have a normal conversation, and have a meal with normal cutlery, and have normal moments.
Nick Yarris
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.
Andrew Luck
If you are with people you truly love, then the simplest meal can feel so romantic.
Fala Chen
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.
Bidzina Ivanishvili
St. Louis’ locally owned restaurants are part of the heart and soul of our city. These restaurants have made St. Louis a destination for food lovers from all over the world, while also serving as places where our communities can come together and share a meal.
Cori Bush
To me, spirituality is the everyday stuff which we’re dealing with all the time. It’s not going into some ecstatic trance. It’s changing a nappy, or making a meal at the end of a very tiring day.
Stephen Hough
I generally only eat one meal a day, which is pretty unusual for a restaurant reviewer. It’s not that I have a problem with food; I’ll eat anything that doesn’t involve a bet, a dare, or an initiation ceremony.
A. A. Gill
When I’m in need of a quick meal or party dish, a burger is hands-down my go-to pick! Burgers are easy, fast, and don’t even require utensils to eat, making them the perfect get-together main course, tailgating essential, and simple dinner recipe to whip up any night of the week.
Marcus Samuelsson
I worship scones and danishes. If I never had another meal, I wouldn’t care as long as I could eat pastries and jelly doughnuts.
Gene Simmons
Because I don’t like to play on a full stomach, I try to eat a bigger meal in the morning and less throughout the day leading up to the game.
Ali Krieger
For the Anglo-Saxons, meat was the main meal of the day, which revolved around ‘before-meat’ and ‘after-meat.’ But it has ended up as the metaphor for the most basic: ‘meat and potatoes’ is as far from sassy – from ‘sauce’ – as you can get.
Susie Dent
Your bones are not just made of the last meal you had, but the meals that you’ve had across many years. By looking at the composition of those teeth, researchers can say that something was a large component of the diet. This tells us a lot about how hominins lived and what they ate.
Hope Jahren
For my meal replacements, I eat way too many Quest bars. I think you should eat every three hours. I usually wake up once a night, and if I do wake up, I always eat a Quest bar to feed my machine.
Skip Bayless
Miss a meal if you have to, but don’t miss a book.
Jim Rohn
Chocolate is not cheating! After a salty meal, you need a little bit of sweet. This is living, not cheating.
Ali Landry
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.
Lucy Davis
There’s nothing you can really do to prepare to rock. Do you prepare to eat a delicious meal? Are you hungry? Then you’re gonna eat it.
Jack Black
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
Chefs don’t eat at normal hours, so the only time you feel like you really need a meal is after service, when you’re exhausted and just crave something to help you wind down.
Marcus Samuelsson
The family meal is really the nursery of democracy. It’s where we learn to share; it’s where we learn to argue without offending. It’s just too critical to let go, as we’ve been so blithely doing.
Michael Pollan
I kind of think of engineering like the chefs at a restaurant. Nobody’s going to deny chefs are integrally important, but there’s also so many other people who contribute to a great meal.
Ben Silbermann
I just want to be there for my husband. I don’t ever want him to think that he’s not getting everything at home – love, attention, encouragement, a meal. I just want him to feel the best he feels at home. I think that’s what a good wife is. Someone who is very attentive to her husband.
Tamera Mowry
The Gunnar Challenge offers new workouts every day, a meal plan and daily ‘verbal 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.
Gunnar Peterson
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
Being a vegan just helps me build up my self-esteem. I feel good about it every time I eat a meal.
When I do a 30-minute meal, for instance, on Food Network, that’s my food you see at the end of the show and it’s not perfect. And if sometimes things break or drop or the pasta hits the wall when I’m draining it, they never stop tape. They just kind of let me go with it.
Rachael Ray
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?’
Dave Myers
I tend not to eat lunch because a midday meal makes me want to sleep in the afternoon.
Leo Sayer
Yes, a cheeseburger and fries is probably my favourite meal. But I don’t eat ground beef anymore.
Eric Schlosser
My biggest win was getting the meal money bumped from $5 to $7.
Bob Cousy
If I could only eat one meal for the rest of my life it would be king crab legs, salad and some chicken.
Skai Jackson
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.
Marisa Miller
You give the reader a sense of a full meal.
Laurell K. Hamilton
I always thought it was sad that you couldn’t get anything really good to eat at concerts, so we sit down with our fans before every show and eat a gourmet meal that we made for them.
Zac Brown
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.
Michael Pollan
Ewan McGregor and I ate a lot of strange things on our motorcycle journey around the world, but the strangest had to be a meal we had in Mongolia.
Charley Boorman
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.
Yotam Ottolenghi
If you’re going out for a meal with friends, and they say they can’t afford to go to such and such a place, you can’t force them to afford it.
Phyllis Logan
