9 Foods That Are Not Fit For Queen Elizabeth II

Her kitchen staff know better than to serve these food items on Her Majesty’s table.

One of the perks of being a royal is having a fully staffed kitchen at her disposal that can serve whatever she likes. Queen Elizabeth II’s staff are well aware of the things that she will never eat and of course, they will work their daily menus according to her wishes.

Having unlimited means, the Queen can be choosy on what appears on her dining room. Her kitchen staff know better than to serve these 9 food items on Her Majesty’s table.

Pasta

The Queen doesn’t like eating pasta for lunch. According to formal Royal chef Darren McGrady, Queen Elizabeth II won’t let herself eat starches when she’s having lunch alone. Her choice of lunch chow are grilled chicken or fish with two veggies on the side or a big serving of salad.

Potatoes

Apparently, the Queen is not a big fan of bread and pasta, thus she also shuns potatoes.

Rare meat

So you think people who like their steaks well done are simply dumb? Try telling that to the Queen of England, who doesn’t like her steaks bloody.

White eggs

She prefers brown eggs because she thinks they taste better. She likes them scrambled and with salmon and truffle during Christmas.

Garlic and onions

Quite understandable for someone who does a lot of meeting and greeting people. The Queen may be avoiding bad breath so she doesn’t like eating foods with lots of garlic and onions.

Bread crusts

“A chef told me off for serving the sandwiches with crusts,” said former Royal chef Owen Hodgson. Her Majesty likes her tea sandwiches with the edges cut. She loves tuna sandwiches with buttered sides, also with mayonnaise, cucumber slices, and pepper.

Here’s an interesting fact: She doesn’t eat English muffins for tea time because them muffins aren’t actually from England.

Out-of-season fruits

The Queen will go along with what the season provides when it comes to produce. This means she will eat fruits only if they are in season.


As McGrady shared:

“You can send strawberries every day to The Queen during summer at Balmoral and she’ll never say a word. Try including strawberries on the menu in January and she’ll scrub out the line and say don’t dare send me genetically modified strawberries.”

Whole bananas

Her Majesty refused to be seen eating bananas the way us normal people do. Instead of eating it with her bare hands, she uses a fork and knife to peel the fruit and slide the flesh out. She cuts the fruit in little slices before putting them in her mouth.

Sweetened tea

Only Earl Grey with a spot of milk for the Queen of England, please. Hold the sugar, though. She takes her tea unsweetened.

10 of the Worst Feelings Ever, and Everyone Can Relate To Them

It just feels bad, man.

Every person in this world, in one way or another, has his or her own likes and dislikes when it comes to a lot of things. It is just human nature. so to speak. For instance, some might like eating pizzas with pineapple toppings, while others do not. Some might like the idea of traveling, while others would prefer saving up. Some might like watching a certain T.V show, while others simply prefer going to the movies. You see, the list just goes on and on.

Interestingly, an artist by the name of Jacob Andrews decided to venture on this topic by drawing up the 10 Objectively Worst Feelings in the World. Although he presents it in a hilarious way possible, it cannot be denied that his drawings are something that everyone can relate to. And mind you, these do not portray the deepest and meaningful feelings in terms of life and death issues. Nor do they convey a complicated analysis of the human psyche. These are basically first world problems of the very worst kind.

The comics are part of Andrews’ series which he originally created on College Humor. They are really thought-provoking, most especially if you are looking to balance your life with some positivity (because who on earth do not want such, right?). Well, it is actually something that the world really needs now....

Jack The Ripper Letter Mystery Finally Solved?

An analysis suggests that two popular Jack the Ripper letters were written by a single author.

In 1888, Jack the Ripper brought terror to Whitechapel, London by going on a murderous spree that resulted in the gruesome deaths of at least five young women in three months. He was never brought to justice. At that time, there were hundreds of letters sent to the London Police and the media. It was claimed to be written by Jack the Ripper himself.

For many years, many have doubted the authenticity of the letters, with some people believing they were all faked to help boost newspaper sales. Now, an expert has come to prove with evidence that the letters were, in fact, fabricated.

There are over 200 letters said to have come from Jack the Ripper.
