31 year old Cristiano Ronaldo, who played alongside his Portugal teammates and beat the hosts, France to win the Euro 2016 trophy earlier this year, has is earnings over the last 12 months before tax, calculated to be a hefty $88,000,000. He charts joint fourth on the highest paid celebrity list, the same position as Dr Phil. As a result, Real Madrid player, Ronaldo is the highest paid athlete on the Forbes list and ESPN claims that Ronaldo is currently the world's most famous athlete.

I won't write anymore about Ronaldo's great achievements and accolades as this information is easily accessible online and the purpose of this article is to focus on Cristiano's nutrition habits. This blog post is the fifth in the YouRCooK Nutrition Habits series which looks at what the top 100 highest paid celebrities of 2016 eat and drink. Over the course of the remaining 95 days, I will somehow explore these celebrities nutrition habits and see if there is a link between high earnings and good nutrition (what does good nutrition even mean?).  I have not found sufficient evidence as yet to confirm or disprove whether the wealthiest celebrities have a so called 'healthier' diet but only time will tell whether an association exists.

Dr Phil is fourth on the Forbes World's Highest Paid Celebrity List of 2016. Dr Phil hails form Vinita Oklahoma and in 1975 he graduated with a BA in Psychology from Midwestern State University. I first came across Dr Phil on the Oprah Winfrey Show many years ago where he would help people by providing relationship and life strategy expertise.

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?

Salads are relatively easy to prepare so the first recipe in the YouRCooK Summer Salad Recipe series is a vegetarian one which I had for lunch today. I don't measure out quantities but just throw a few of the ingredients into my lunch box as shown by the photos. The salad won't get a 10 out of 10 for presentation but I would give it a 10 out of 10 for taste. I love sunflower seeds and eat them as often as I can.

One Direction

UK musicians, Liam, Louis, Niall and Harry are second on the list of the Forbes World's highest paid celebrities list of 2016 even though they are currently on hiatus at the moment. One Direction charted fourth on the same Forbes list in 2015. Although Zayn Malik departed the band to go solo in 2015, One Direction are actually the top-earning boyband of all time! That is quite an achievement.

Liam Payne, Niall Horan and Harry Styles are all 22 years old and Louis Tomlinson is 25 and collectively as a group, One Direction are worth an estimated $110 Million dollars.  That averages out at approximately $27.5 million each.

So we know the guys have earned a fair bit of money, but more importantly what is there nutrition like?

Musician Taylor Swift has topped the Forbes World's highest paid celebrities list of 2016. She has landed the number 1 position. Congratulations Taylor Swift! At the age of 26, Taylor is worth an estimated $170 Million dollars. That is a whole lot of money. But more importantly what is her nutrition like? This article should be a refreshing respite from all the other online items where alot of them focus on whether Taylor Swift's romances are genuine or fake and who she is dating. 

This article is the first in the nutrition habits of the top 100 highest paid celebrities series and over the course of 100 days, I will somehow explore every celebrities nutrition habits and see if there is a link between high net worth and good nutrition. 

I will aim to contact each individual celebrity/their agent on the list directly and ask them about their nutrition 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% correct as the quality of data is only as good as the information source.
