‘I was brought up in Ghana and Nigeria, where my father was a doctor and my mother was a teacher, so my early eating habits were influenced by African necessity. Meat and fish were curried or peppered in order to preserve them and we picked the abundant fruit that grew Authentic Prada Trainers in our garden. I sometimes yearn for plantain, and occasionally I’ll see an African restaurant and think about going in, but I never do.

I’m very interested in food and I have very precise clear-cut tastes. I’ve gone off the sort of cooking you have in Michelin-starred restaurants. We now prefer simple food of the best quality, which is a result of living in France. My wife Susan and I live in Bordeaux for three months a year where we have this amazing vegetable garden. If you are digging potatoes out of the soil and cooking them, anything from the greengrocer is going to be inferior.

For the last 20 years I’ve had the juice of four oranges for breakfast, using a classic manual squeezer, which I drink with toast and a cup of tea. A shot of citrus every day of your life must have a good effect. It is the first nutritional moment before I go up to my study.

When I’m in London I meet someone for lunch about twice a week, for some vague purpose, either at the Chelsea Arts Club or Ziani, where I’ll order pasta with tomato and basil or grilled fish – usually John Dory or cod. Susan is a fantastic cook – she makes amazing bruschettas. I’m the omelette maker. I also make the vinaigrette with my own secret recipe. I use red wine vinegar, that’s all I’m saying.

I work through until seven. Writing makes me tired, so I need to drink some Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc which perks me up. We tend to eat dinner at nine o’clock, never earlier. Susan usually cooks something like fresh halibut or sea bass cooked in foil. Biggest Prada Store London We really like rabbit, which is hard to find in London, and guinea fowl. We’ll always have a salad. In France we grow our own lettuce, but when we get this stuff from the chilled counter here it’s a big disappointment. In terms of Apertura Outlet Prada Montevarchi Authentic Prada Bag For Sale Philippines quality of ingredients, France puts our food to shame.’

ChardonnayIt is a commonly held belief replica that three glasses of wine each day is a healthy alcohol allowance for men. Unfortunately, studies show that for a man of William’s age (51), the optimum amount of alcohol to consume is something less than a unit each day. Matching each glass of wine with Authentic Prada Shoes Outlet a glass of water may help William to moderate his wine intake.

RabbitThis meat is another prime example of William’s tendency to gravitate towards quite primal fare. Rabbit may be Authentic Prada Bags For Cheap either farmed or wild, with the latter Black Prada Chain Bag being a better option not just for the animal, but William too.

Red wine vinegarThis contains polyphenols – the plant substances found in foodstuffs such as red wine, chocolate, apples and onions that are believed to help reduce Authentic Prada Handbags Outlet Online the risk of a variety of conditions including heart and lung disease.

Guinea fowlThis tends to be an intensively reared bird in this country. Wild birds that might be acceptable alternatives for William include woodcock, wood pigeon, partridge and grouse.

John Dory codWhite fish such as John Dory tend to be relatively bereft of the so-called omega-3 oils that are hailed for their health-giving potential. This is, however, a natural food, and one that is most certainly in keeping with William’s well-balanced and relatively unprocessed diet.

PastaLike bread, pasta tends to be quite disruptive to the body’s chemistry, and also offers very little in the way fibre and nutrients. I recommend that William does as the Romans do and eat this stuff as a starter, but avoids the huge portions of pasta we seem to have taken to over here.

Salad (Cos lettuce) Rich in a range of health-giving nutrients such as fibre, folic acid, vitamin C and lutein (which helps to protect against eye disease later in life), commercially grown lettuce tends to get a fair share Barberino Factory Outlet Prada of agrochemicals, so he might be better off going organic. Otherwise, he should give this a thorough wash.

OrangesBesides their plentiful content of vitamin C, oranges are also rich in folic acid, potassium and polyphenols. Eating fruit in its whole form is the best way to get all the goodness, though home-made, freshly squeezed juice is the next best thing. However, diluting juice with some water helps slow the release of its sugar into the system.

Sea bassCompared to white fish, sea bass contains about three times the amount of omega-3 fats that have been linked with a reduced risk of body and Authentic Prada Americas Cup Sneakers brain conditions including heart disease and dementia. Fish that will provide William with even greater amounts of these previous oils include salmon, trout, mackerel and sardine.

ToastWheat-based breads, even wholemeal ones, tend to give quite rapid release of sugar into the bloodstream, which in turn stimulates surges in insulin. Excesses of this hormone are believed to promote weight gain, high levels of unhealthy blood fats called triglycerides and a tendency towards diabetes. Compared to those made from wheat, rye bread has been shown to instigate less insulin secretion, which makes it better breakfast fare.
