Celebrities Share The Delicious (And Strange) Meals They Actually Make Themselves

For most of us, making all our meals is just a part of life. Wake up make breakfast, pack lunch, come home, and cook for our families. I’m sure we’d all appreciate having a personal chef to cook for us, or an assistant to run out and get our favorite takeout every once in a while.

What is considered food luxuries for us are part of an average day for celebrities. But even though they can have any food they want, a lot of celebs still like to cook for themselves when they can. These celebrities spilled the beans on what their go-to meals are to make at home. A few have some pretty strict diets, but others know that pasta and peanut butter are the two best things in life.

Most of us work out to feel good and look good, but Timberlake admitted that he works out so he can eat 24/7. He loves to eat so much that he has two breakfasts. Very hobbit-like.

He’ll usually make waffles with flax and almond butter and a scrambled egg for his first breakfast. Then after working out, he’ll make a protein shake.

Tebow takes his coffee in a very specific form. He mixes half regular, half decaf coffee with heavy organic whipping cream, a slice of butter, unsweetened almond milk, and two-to-three drops of liquid English Toffee flavor Stevia.

Not even a white girl in Starbucks could one-up Tebow’s coffee order.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson starts his day with a massive breakfast that includes potatoes, grilled sirloin steak, and 4-6 scrambled egg whites. Yes, steak for breakfast.

Tatum admitted on Reddit that his go-to meal at home is “Bread, white. Peanut butter—not crunchy, creamy. Grape jelly—double portion, more than you think should actually fit on a piece of white bread. Bread. And then some Cheetos shoved in there, and then you’re good to go.” How does he still have abs after that?

Kylie Jenner isn’t as strict with her diet as the other Kardashians are known to be. She admitted on her app, “I eat shrimp tacos every day.” She also told us that she hates most fancy food and prefers the food she makes herself.

Somehow, a love of shrimp tacos makes Jenner a little more relatable.

Hilary Duff’s sister, Haylie, has a cooking blog and television show, so I’m sure Hilary gets a lot of at-home meal inspiration from her. But Hilary starts her day with a simple green smoothie.

She told Bon Appétit, “I drink a scoop of Super Greens that I put into water or juice. It smells super gross.” Hey, at least she knows it.

I never expected Carey to cook a day in her life, but apparently, her diet is pretty easy to follow at home. She only eats Norwegian salmon and capers every day. Yes, that’s it. Carey is the third person on this list to eat salmon religiously, so I feel like I should incorporate it into my diet ASAP.

You don’t just name a revenge album Lemonade without some real-life inspiration. Beyoncé has been known to follow the Lemon Diet, which is a cleansing drink of lemons, water, and cayenne each day.

But she’s also been spotted eating cupcakes after Soul Cycle classes, so she’s still the queen of the people.

The one thing that was shocking to hear was that Shaq has never drunk a mug of coffee in his life.

Cruise has to eat healthy to be able to perform all his stunts in his endless stream of action movies, but he loves cookies. Cruise prefers to make them himself (kind of), so he buys premade cookie dough.

One time he even flipped out at his assistant because he couldn’t find his “cookie stuff” in the fridge.

The country singer admitted that while on the road, he always had his toothbrush and a jar of peanut butter.

He’ll eat peanut butter every day while on tour because he doesn’t always trust the food at other places. Bryan will either put it on a sandwich or eat it straight from the jar.
