Hillary Clinton's new book What Happened takes readers behind the scenes of her historic presidential campaign. Unsurprisingly, a large portion of the book focuses on policy, debate prep, campaign strategies, Russia, and (you guessed it) those damn emails. But the former secretary of state also shared her daily routine, including what she ate on the campaign trail.
"It's funny how much you look forward to the next meal when you're living out of a suitcase," Clinton wrote. After spending nearly 600 days on the road, she'd know.
Clinton started her day by ordering scrambled egg whites and vegetables from room service, and typically doused the breakfast with her favorite condiment: hot sauce. As she prepped for the day by checking emails and reading press clips, Clinton drank black coffee or strong black tea.
Plenty of meals were eaten on board her campaign plane. As it turned out, one of the flight attendants, Liz, happened to be a nutritionist who frequently brought fresh, homemade meals for the entire staff. Clinton notes that her favorites were salmon salad, chicken tenders with almond flour, and poblano pepper soup. "[Liz's] surprise smash hit was brownies made out of chickpea flour," she added.
Clinton and her staff also ate protein-filled snacks like canned salmon, Quest bars, and KIND bars for much-needed energy boosts. Her guilty pleasure snack was Goldfish and, after Liz introduced the team to Flavor Blasted Goldfish, they had a lively debate about whether or not this flavor was better than the original. (Not all debates are political, even when you're Hillary Clinton.)
Ever since she discovered hot sauce in 1992, it's been Clinton's go-to condiment and she puts it on pretty much everything. Her favorite brands are Marie Sharp's and Ninja Squirrel Sriracha.
Although Clinton mostly kept her diet healthy and consistent, she tried new cuisines as she traveled all over the country. She recalls drinking a gallon of lemonade and eating a pork chop on a stick in the 100 degree heat at the Iowa State Fair.
And speaking of Iowa, she has a favorite restaurant in Cedar Rapids where they know her beverage of choice and immediately bring it to her whenever she arrives: a martini with olives and Tito's Handmade Vodka.
Nobody cares, go away.
What she ate? Hmmmm.........where is Huma listed!?
Not only that but I gotta change my favorite cocktail now.
I think we all know what Hillary likes to eat.
I have had Tito’s, made in Texas. But I doubt Hillary has that she would want something very expensive for her Vodka.
From all the irrelevant minutae being written about Hillary, you’d think she won the election. If Elizabeth Dole had run for president and lost, would she hang around like post-nasal drip?
Did she mention CROW at the end of the campaign? I hear from those who’ve eaten crow, that the feathers aren’t so tasty
Believe this story or not, I’ve had my last Goldfish, Flavor Blasted or no, my last Quest bar (they taste like chemicals anyway), my last KIND bar, will never try Marie Sharp’s or Mutant Ninja Squirrel Sriracha.
Actually I have it on *very* good authority that her drink of choice is Crown Royal.
And from that same source, the hot sauce thing is pure BS.
We all would like for Hillary to go away, yet posts about her keep coming up on FR, several per day.
Apparently humble pie wasn’t on the menu.
I thought her drink of choice was anything 80 proof or more.
Marie Sharp’s is awesome! Made in Belize. The only thing I have in common with Hillary (if this story is even true).
She's still trying to recover from that embarrassingly condescending and stupid attempt at having something in common with black people. Did she pull it out of her purse, lol? What kind of hot sauce, Hillary? What's your favorite and why? Is it the only sauce you use or do you have several different kinds for different purposes, as do most fans of hot sauce? Going to have to issue yet another wooden, artificial statement to explain your hot sauce usage to cover your ample behind on that one too, I guess.
It’s a “signal” to the black community that she’s a home slice or something.
Her guilty pleasure snack was Goldfish
So how was it that woman mentioned had enough time to make food for everyone on the plane?????
I don’t know if I believe this being that I have cooked for people and it takes a while to gather the ingredients, cook and store.
