Nutrition Habits of James Patterson - 3rd Highest Paid Celebrity of 2016

American author, New York born James Patterson ranked third on the Forbes list of the World's highest paid celebrities list of 2016. Did you know that 69 year old James Patterson is the world's best selling author and writes over a dozen books a year with coauthors. I certainly had no idea that this was the case and had not actually heard of him before but James' estimated earnings is a whooping $95 Million.

So we know James is a successful writer and gets paid extremely well but you all really want to know what is his nutrition like and does anything in particular that he consumes assist him with this specialist gift of writing?

Unfortunately, as I predicted yesterday, there is not much online about James' nutrition habits but there is however a glimmer of hope on food related information associated with him. All will be revealed in the next few paragraphs.

This article is the third in the YouRCooK Nutrition Habits series which looks at what the top 100 highest paid celebrities of 2016 series like to eat. Over the course of the remaining 97 days, I will somehow explore celebrities nutrition habits and see if there is a link between high earnings and good nutrition. 

I will aim to contact each individual celebrity/their agent on the list directly and ask them about their nutrition habits but whilst I am awaiting a response and of course its quite unlikely I will receive any, most of this information will be sourced online from various websites and social media platforms. 

I will do my best to ensure the information is accurate but do not presume it is 100% factually correct because the quality of data is only as good as the information source.

So what food is linked to Mr Patterson?

Have a guess at the food that has been linked to James Patterson?  I will give you a clue. It is something you bake. I suppose the picture below is a clear giveaway. In 'The Mystery Writers of America Cookbook: Wickedly Good Meals and Desserts to Die For' there is a recipe submitted by James, entitled Grandma’s Killer Chocolate Cake.  What an awesome title.

Doesn't this sound delicious and this cake recipe can be found here. Try it out and see what you think of the chocolate cake. I'm not sure if James Patterson is a fan of chocolate cake but as he suggested this cake recipe, you would presume he is. I envisage that a lot of us are fans of an irresistible piece of chocolate cake because I'm certainly a big chocolate cake lover. Sumptuous morsels of rich gooey chocolate cake with a thick layer of chocolate covering melting in your mouth is simply  chocolate heaven but of course a dessert such as this is a very occasional treat for me.

Fellow chocolate cake lovers, it would be great if you could share your favourite chocolate cake recipes below and if you can share one that produces the same rich full flavoured essence of a full fat chocolate without there being lots of sugar, fat and chocolate in it, that would be a bonus.

So now we have very tenuously explored the cake link to James Patterson because I was unable to share with you what he might actually eat due to a lack of information online about this. Therefore I will have to speculate that perhaps James prepares meals or his wife cooks them or maybe a personal chef does or even its a mixture of those possibilities. They might even prefer to predominantly eat out out restaurants instead. Who knows and you probably don't even care.

For those of you who may have a tiny interest of what fills best selling authors plates, I could perhaps write another YouRCooK Series - The Nutrition Habits of Bestselling Authors. Where the likes of Stephen King, J K Rowling and many other authors culinary preferences can be mulled over and compared.

Anyway, it would be great if you could return tomorrow to where you can find out about
Dr Phil McGraw who is 4th on the Forbes 2016 World's Highest Paid Celebrity list.
