Masterchef’s Ben Milbourne Gives Us A Look At His Daily Diet

Ben MilbourneEach week in the Sun-Herald magazine there is a columnn called My Day On A Plate. Each week a personality outlines what they have eaten on a certain day. Usually the person being showcased outlines a diet full of lean meats and green vegetables with Pete Evan’s activated almonds diet going viral.  The worst food you ever see is a latte with full fat milk or a couple of pieces of dark chocolate as a treat.

It was refreshing to see former Masterchef contestant Ben Milbourne actually give a diet that seemed real. He kicked off with  Nutri-Grain sprinkled on Milo. Lunch was a Chicken Caesar Wrap with a bag of mixed lollies and a Coke Zero and he ended the day with three choc-chip cookies.

Ben continues to cook and has released a cookbook called Mexican Craving. Currently it is $27.95 on Booktopia. Sometimes these books turn up quite cheap at Big W.

The book apparently has easy-to-follow recipes to enable people to cook Mexican at home. If you have bought the book let us knonw what you think.

“Each week a personality outlines what they have eaten on a certain day.”

9 abc { 11.03.13 at 9:00 pm }

@littlepetal: his breakfast is a kids breakfast!!!!!!!!!!!

10 Littlepetal { 11.03.13 at 9:11 pm }

But Ben is not a kid or is he still a kid????

11 abc { 11.03.13 at 9:17 pm }

no he is not a kid…….but its ok to like some thing from childhood and continue with it for a like time as long as it does not affect his health.

12 daisy { 11.03.13 at 9:40 pm }

Hi abc. You got your wish. I don’t recall Ben so nothing personal for @5. Mr potato head?

13 Littlepetal { 11.03.13 at 9:58 pm }

He would not have lost weight with his current diet.

14 abc { 11.03.13 at 10:08 pm }

daisy: u dont recall ben? his pic is right there.

15 abc { 11.03.13 at 10:12 pm }

littlepetal: agree with you! mixed bag of lollies! who has that?

16 daisy { 11.03.13 at 11:38 pm }

Well I remember him a bit abc.

17 abc { 11.04.13 at 12:05 am }

How’d I know I would find you here, abc?! How are you going?

This is just a one off day, surely? I doubt he would eat a pack of lollies everyday. I agree it’s refreshing to see a more ‘realistic’ diet, as in he didn’t just choose his best day to show off what a bad-ass organic activated super food eater he is (says the girl who eats handfuls of kale with tuna for lunch.. mmm.. delicious…)

19 abc { 11.04.13 at 2:00 am }

Hey elizaaaa, i am very good. How about you? I am sure ben does not eat bag of lollies every day. Could u explain what u meant after that. Organic eater?
