I have never been a fan of Robert Pattinson. Sure, he was pretty in those Twilight films, but he was also in that crappy movie with Jack Black and Kate Winslet. Not to mention the ill-fated and extremely underrated Waterforless. But the real problem is this: I always think of him as a poser. I mean, sure, he probably went to Oxford or wherever and learned how to speak properly, but he has always looked like a poser to me. You know the sort: the rich and famous fakes. So I was sort of happy when I heard that his latest film was going to be an action-adventure comedy titled Mudbound. Now, I like my comedies to have an element of action in them, and this looked like just the ticket. An action-adventure comedy about farm animals? Now, that’s funny!
Well, I was wrong. It was all a hoax. Turns out that Pattinson’s character, Ivan, is in fact a fraud. And the movie is basically one big set of laughs about how he pretends to be smart and how naive all the other characters are. It’s really nothing more than a stupid comedy with some action scenes thrown in for good measure.
But it’s a shame, because it was such a treat to see Pattinson back in form. And not just in form, but with his hair and makeup looking superb. This was a man who has definitely been through hell and back, and he’s proven that he’s more than capable of kicking ass and taking names. And that is not something to scoff at; especially when you consider that he’s playing a character who is actually based on a real-life figure. So it was very fitting that he delivered one of the best performances of his career.
And speaking of fits, let’s get into the meat of this article: what is Pattinson’s diet like? Well, for starters, he doesn’t eat many fruits or vegetables. He prefers to get his carbohydrates from bread and pasta, and the occasional bowl of bruschetta. As for proteins, he usually opts for fish and chicken, with rarer options like venison and lamb. When it comes to fats, he tends to go for the full range of options: butter, cheese and cream are all favorites, as are red meats like ribs and steak. Although he does have a vegan diet segment once a week.
Now, obviously, this is an approximation of his diet. For one thing, it’s impossible to know what he actually eats. And for another, it wouldn’t do for his stylist to know what he’s putting in his body
But I’d like to think it’s fairly representative of what he prefers. Especially since that’s the kind of thing that a) makes you healthy and b) fits the bill as to why he looks the way he does.
The Importance of Healthy Eating
When I think of fashion and health, I always think of Ralph Lauren. The designer’s famous dictum is “absence of style is a lack of health”. And he’s right, you know? It’s true that there’s a fashion link between food and health, as the French would say. If you want to look and feel your best, you need to eat your best too.
In that way, it’s kind of ironic that it was Pattinson’s character who essentially taught us the most about the connection between food and health. Take a look:
He starts by eating what seems like an adequate amount of food, but then he slowly starts going through it all and leaving nothing but the plate scrapes behind.
This sort of “clearing out” process is very common when people go on a diet. And it’s not just about looking trim and athletic. It also has a lot to do with your overall well-being. When you’re underweight, you’re more prone to ailments like diabetes and heart disease. So it really is a question of eating for overall health and not just for looks.
How to Make the Most of Limited Dietary Options
If you’re on a diet, chances are you have very limited options when it comes to food. You can’t eat what you want, because whatever you are eating, someone else is probably eating less of it. Or, if you’re lucky, you have a friend who will eat whatever you can’t eat, which is convenient, because then you can eat whatever you want and not feel guilty about it. Alternatively, you could always make multiple food runs per day, trying to ensure that you have something available for every meal.
In these cases, what you need to do is make the best of what you have. And that means creating a culinary masterpiece out of the least possible amount of ingredients. It’s all about using your imagination and adding a little bit of creativity.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at how Pattinson makes the most of his limited dietary options.
This is a dish I’ve been making for years. Basically, it’s a huge plate of cold cuts and other uncooked morsels arranged on a platter. Essentially, it’s a quick and easy way to get an inexpensive and nutritious meal. Plus, it looks fantastic and can be quite the conversation starter.
I like to make mine without the pasta, though. Just the ingredients on a plate with a few crusty breadsticks on the side. It’s the quintessential “less is more” moment when an elegant and refined gentleman turns up at your door requesting your culinary skills and offering you a six-figure sum to cook for him. It might seem like an ideal opportunity to put your culinary skills to the test, but in reality, it’s probably best not to.
Not only is food usually the best medicine, but it can also be the key to a better understanding with the person you’re feeding it to. Be that as it may, in the event that you do decide to accept the gentleman’s invitation, expect that your culinary expertise will be put to the test and that you’ll have to work hard to prove yourself worthy of such an esteemed customer.
Sometimes, the best plan is no plan. So, when you have very limited options for the day, it can be nice to go with the flow and just make what you need when you need it. That way, you don’t go wrong, and you get the nutrients you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. In any case, it’s all about making the most of what you have and being creative in the kitchen.
Chicken And Arugula Parmesan
Pattinson’s choice for his last meal before he faced off against the werewolves in Twilight is a pizza made with chicken and arugula. This is yet another dish that I’ve been making for years and am always happy to serve. It’s easy to make, and it gives you something to look forward to when you get home from a hard day at work. Plus, it’s an inexpensive way to add some protein to your diet.
What I love about this recipe is that you can add whatever you want to it. So, if you’re on a diet, you can make sure that you don’t get too much of whatever you’re not supposed to have by swapping out the chicken for vegetarian alternatives.
What About Alcohol?
The other night, I had a drink with a friend at a bar and overheard two women complaining about how they can’t drink alcohol anymore because they’re “on a diet”. In both instances, the women were French and were criticizing French food culture. They said that they were on “low fat” diets and that drinking alcohol was something they used to do. So they can’t have a drink now because it goes against the rules.
I’ve seen this sort of thing before and know what it’s like to be part of a culture that looks down on alcohol. In my case, I come from a family of alcoholics, and I learned to fear alcohol as soon as I learned how to speak. It was the same with my friend; she’s on a diet and doesn’t feel comfortable having a drink, as she thinks it will make her gain weight. This sort of thing makes me sad, because it’s all about what society thinks you should and should not be doing, rather than what’s right for you. It’s the same with all the “healthy” foods that people are supposed to be avoiding; it’s all about what’s trendy and what’s in and out of fashion rather than what’s good for you.
