Elon Musk has come a long way since he fed himself on $1 a day, and mostly ate oranges and hot dogs. These days he can afford anything he wants to eat. So, what would he choose? What is Elon Musk’s favorite food?
French food and BBQ. While these are more preparations then particular foods, this is his answer when asked the question. The two almost seem at odds with one another as they’re kind of at the opposite ends of the preparation stratosphere.
While Musk may have given up on oranges and hot dogs, one thing he can’t give up on is sweets. Many times he’s chosen to have a Mars bar for breakfast, instead of a proper breakfast. As someone who travels around the world for business, he has tasted a lot of cuisine.
Musk’s Eating Habits
Elon Musk doesn’t really stick to a particular diet. Or really watch what he eats at all. Often times during the day, someone will bring him food for lunch, and he’ll just eat whatever is put in front of him.
While he eats Mars bars for breakfast, he’s not averse to cereal, he just prefers it in the middle of the night. Cinnamon Toast Crunch is his favorite to chow down on.
In addition to giving up the $1 a day eating diet, he’s also reduced his caffeine intake, previously driving large amounts of Diet Coke and coffee. He still continues to drink both, just a more manageable level of about 3 each a day. Which would still be a lot for some people. Though, if I worked as much as Elon Musk did, I’d probably drink the same amount.
A Family’s Lack of Influence
Elon’s younger brother Kimbal is almost the complete opposite of him when it comes to food. The brothers have a lot in common when it comes to business, as they joined forces to start their first business and have continued to be partners since.
Kimbal has less of a visual role in Tesla and SpaceX, though sits on the boards of each. He is a professionally trained chef that owns multiple restaurants and eateries. His big focuses are on sustainability and providing access to fresh food to all of America, no matter where they are or their circumstance.
While not a vegan himself, he does have a vegan restaurant and promotes healthy eating. The majority of his fuel comes from vegetables and fish. A stark contrast to his older brother. Elon has helped Kimbal with his initiatives but little brother hasn’t been able to influence him to eat a healthier diet.
In addition to his brother’s healthy eating ways, his mother’s eating is healthy as well. Supermodel Maye Musk is also a registered dietician and has helped many patients while she was providing for her three children. Again, no luck with convincing Elon that perhaps so much junk food isn’t good.
The Boring Company Candy
Not sure if this is actually true or not, but Musk talked about it on dates other than April 1st, so perhaps there’s some validity to it. And that it is that he’s looking to start a candy brand, and/or store.
He says he’s serious and showed a picture of the first prototype on his, now deleted, Instagram. I wonder what candy created by Elon Musk would taste like. He has said that he would like a cryptocandy, but I have no idea what that means, or what it would taste like. All I can think of is freeze-dried astronaut food.
French and Barbeque
Though he answered that French and Barbeque are his favorite foods, he mostly only talks about junk food so we’re not sure if he just gave the answer as it sounded better than ice cream. One thing we know for sure that’s not at the top of his list are oranges and hot dogs.
