Princess Diana Followed This 1 Food Trend Before It Was Even a Trend
Princess Diana started juicing before it became a trend
Juicing is the process of extracting juices from various fruits and vegetables. It has been around for centuries now, but it was not until recently that many health gurus began to promote it as a wellness strategy. According to Harvard University, the sales of juicers increased significantly in the early 2010s.
People all over the world have constantly been looking for ways to improve their health. Celebrities, especially, often promote new food trends and share their apparent benefits with fans. There are many food trends going on at the moment, though Princess Diana already tried one of them a long time ago before it many people did.
“Another time she came in and said: ‘I need a juicer. I want to start having fresh juices,’” he told USA Today. “So I was dispatched in a taxi to Selfridges (a fancy London department store) to get a juicer, and I started making juices for her with carrots, celery, parsley, spinach.”
However, Diana was already interested in juicing in the 1990s. Her personal chef, Darren McGrady, who worked for her from 1993 to 1997, revealed how she got him to user a juicer in her kitchen.
Princess Diana ate a low-fat diet and avoided red meat
Additionally, Diana did not eat much red meat.
McGrady shared with Hello! that, unlike Queen Elizabeth, Diana did not eat many dishes with a lot of fat. He revealed, “When I was cooking for her I had to change my style of cooking. I had to move from cooking food for the Queen – heavy sauces, rich sauces and creams – to start cooking lighter food again, cutting out the fats, cutting out the carbs.”
Princess Diana famously battled bulimia
“I always questioned why on earth she wanted all of this food, any of this food, but there was nothing I could do. I was there as a chef, my job was to cook and to prepare food,” he told Hello!. “I wasn’t a psychologist, or a doctor, who could say you shouldn’t be eating all of this. I knew something wasn’t right but I didn’t know or understand what bulimia was.”
According to McGrady, he did notice that Diana had abnormal eating habits, though he did not feel it was in his place to comment on them.
