Gordon Ramsay is the ultimate Master Chef. Whether he is flipping restaurants, scouting America’s most elite home chefs, or managing his own 58 dining venues, Ramsay’s life revolves around exceptional meals. That said, when he is not in front of the camera whipping up his infamous beef wellington, what exactly does Gordon Ramsay eat? What is on this Michelin Star Chef’s daily menu? Let’s dive in!

For starters, Ramsay is a highly active individual. Sure, his energy on television is unmatched, but what people may not realize is that he doubles as a multi-marathon runner and iron man competitor. Constant training for these events requires serious fuel. To satisfy his hunger, Chef Ramsay prefers to have four to five smaller meals a day (instead of three large ones). This keeps his body fueled and his energy levels running strong throughout the day.

Ramsay kickstarts his morning with something even we can make – oatmeal. Of course, he finds a way to elevate this fairly boring meal into quite a delight. “The night before, put 3 to 4 bananas in the oven on a pilot light. And the next day, squeeze the bananas into almond milk, bring it to a boil, then add the oatmeal and dried cranberries, and you’ll have the most amazing oatmeal for breakfast,” Ramsay wrote in his Reddit AMA. Now that is a bowl of oats!

If it is not an oatmeal morning, it is likely an egg day for Ramsay. When asked how he likes his eggs, Gordon Ramsey responds, “scrambled.” He continues to share, “Over a slice of sourdough bread that has been grilled, and then sort of doused with Worcestershire sauce. And the nice thing about scrambled eggs is that they don’t have to just be breakfast – you can have them in the evening, with some nice mushrooms, some tomatoes. You can have them as a snack at midnight, or at 5 o’clock in the afternoon.”

From there, you will likely not catch Chef Ramsay sitting down much around lunch or dinner. He is on-the-go all-the-time. Instead, Gordon will typically reach for snack items like smoothies or yogurt. If he does get an opportunity to sit, he loves foods that fall under the Indian cuisine category – filled with curries and spices. He is also the number one fan of his mother’s hearty chicken pot pie. Gordon Ramsay is willing to eat most anything — well, anything except one. “The only thing I draw the line at is eating overcooked food. There is NOTHING worse than an overcooked Brussels sprout. The smell is disgusting.” It is also safe to say that he is anti-Hawaiian pizza.

While his palate seems fairly healthy – do not be fooled! Ramsay always has room to indulge. Whether it is a post-workout chocolate milk, a Momofuku Milk Bar pie from his trusted co-host (Christina Tosi), Waffle Saturday, or a double cheeseburger from In-N-Out, Gordon Ramsay knows how to let loose. Bottom line, his cravings are our cravings. Even America’s most well-known Chef appreciates the simplicity of a casual, quick meal.
