Fat Man's Menu

(Anonymous)
Other than the cigarettes/cigars, that menu seems quite healthy to me. The idea that natural saturated fat was "artery-clogging" was based on crap science and spread by crap media. The items on that menu are real food and of a quality that would be hard to match today - no industrial vegetable oils, no meat fattened by grain and hormones, no GMO, nothing processed, no HFCS and no pesticides. And if one didn't overdo it with the deserts and alcohol that menu could be considered quite healthy.

The Victorian diet (in London) from about 1850-1875 has been studied and has been found to be optimal. It was only after 1875 that commercial processed flour products and other foods that lead to chronic disease became widely available.

The more I look at this menu the more I like it. It is mostly nutrient dense food from animals that lived their lives outdoors in a clean environment.

Oysters with white wine
Beef, potatoes, almonds and olives
Bass with hollandaise, more potatoes and champagne
More beef with green beans and potatoes
Veal with green peas
Sorbet
Duck with salad and red wine
Pastries and cakes
Cheese, sparkling water, cognac and cordials

Again, if a 21st century American didn't over do it with portion size, alcohol and sweets it would be a vast improvement over the Standard American Diet.
