27. His Daily Bill of Fare

During the interview he gave to the Editor of The Spectator of London, who visited him in India in 1934, Gandhiji stated :

“This is my daily bill of fare : for my breakfast at eight o'clock I have eighteen ounces of goat's milk and four oranges; for my luncheon at 1 o'clock I again have sixteen ounces of milk, grapes, pears or other fruit. My evening meal is between 5 and 6 o'clock. I eat a teaspoonful of almond paste, twenty or thirty dates, several toma­toes and a lettuce or other salad. This avoids indigestion. As you will note, I eat no starch and no cereals.”
