  • - Hey, I'm Grimes, and this is everything I eat in a day.

  • (playful instrumental music)

  • Usually, I wake up and it's a struggle.

  • So, I actually have these things

  • that I keep by the bed called GO Cubes,

  • that are like caffeinated cubes.

  • And I usually just like eat one of those,

  • and then go back to sleep.

  • And then, slowly the caffeine enters my system

  • and then I like wake up.

  • Normally, I just don't eat all day,

  • and then eat one giant meal at dinner.

  • But right now I'm pregnant,

  • so I obviously don't have that luxury.

  • So lately, I've been waking up

  • and I make this thing called butter toast,

  • which is where I melt

  • like a stick of butter (laughs) on a plate,

  • and then I like put toast in it,

  • and then turn the toast over,

  • so the toast is completely saturated in butter.

  • And then, I put a little bit of jam on it and eat that.

  • But, it's actually incredible.

  • Like this buttered technique, it's great.

  • So I'm allowed 200 milligrams of caffeine

  • per day, right now.

  • For caffeine, I'm between the GO Cubes and matcha.

  • So I'm really into the fancy matcha from Little Tokyo.

  • Then you get the weird whisk thing and you whisk it up.

  • I mean, usually my typical breakfast is the butter toast

  • or a fortified cereal, like Raisin Bran (laughs),

  • with maybe cut some bananas, like blueberries,

  • I don't know raspberries.

  • I actually hate fruit,

  • but I am supposed to eat it right now.

  • I, basically, hate everything besides carbs and fat.

  • Like I actually dislike vegetables pointedly,

  • but they're important to eat.

  • It's just like vile.

  • It's like broccoli, like what the (beep)?

  • It's like actually disgusting,

  • I don't know how anyone eats it.

  • (Grimes laughing)

  • So to clarify, I usually go to bed

  • around six in the morning.

  • Like my breakfast usually happens at like noon or one p.m.,

  • so my lunch is technically kinda like my dinner.

  • I wanna make a cookbook for people who can't cook.

  • This kinda like, just weird shit you can make very easily.

  • I'm really into this weird recipe I made called sludge.

  • It's like you take couscous, you make the couscous.

  • You take, actually I shouldn't

  • say this 'cause it's kinda gross (laughs).

  • - [Film Crew Member] Say it, I wanna know.

  • - You take like a ton of Vegenaise, take a ton of sriracha.

  • And then just like cut up,

  • weirdly celery tastes really good in this,

  • tomatoes, just sort of like take all the vegetables.

  • If you steam some spinach, and you throw it all in.

  • And you just make this sludge, like this couscous sludge,

  • that's like spicy and got Vegenaise.

  • It's like weirdly good.

  • And Vegenaise, I would say,

  • it's one of the few vegan things that's notably,

  • profoundly, better than the original.

  • I just, I would die for Vegenaise.

  • I wouldn't die for Vegenaise, I mean, that's hyperbole.

  • Like on tour and stuff, typically in the past,

  • I've been quite like not good to myself.

  • On the last tour, for my last record,

  • I had this thing, 'cause I was vegan.

  • And I had this thing where I was like,

  • I was like the only reliable food is spaghetti.

  • So I was only eating spaghetti for like a year or two years,

  • I only ate spaghetti.

  • And then I was just like so sick.

  • And my hair actually stopped growing.

  • And I went to the doctor, and the doctor was like,

  • "You actually are malnourished from not eating vegetables

  • "or meat, and just eating spaghetti for two years."

  • But yeah, 'cause spaghetti is the only thing though,

  • like in every city it's good.

  • But yeah, I won't do that again.

  • I won't make the mistake again

  • of only eating spaghetti on tour.

  • Spaghetti is divine though.

  • My favorite restaurant is Cactus Taqueria.

  • I get the veggie burrito.

  • I get all the green sauces.

  • I think it's called salsa verde.

  • Verde, please excuse my incredible ignorance, I'm Canadian.

  • And I just put like a massive amount of green sauce.

  • It's definitely not called green sauce,

  • on the veggie burrito.

  • Like I don't do cheat meals,

  • 'cause I don't believe in like dieting.

  • I just feel like there's like a lot of bad shit in society

  • about body image and stuff.

  • So like, I don't know, I try to just eat what I want.

  • But my comfort food, I guess, oh, salt and vinegar chips,

  • Miss Vickie's Salt and Vinegar chips.

  • Specifically, binge eating

  • Miss Vickie's Salt and Vinegar chips while watching TV,

  • is like one of the best experiences you can have.

  • What am I snacking on?

  • Oh, I'm supposed to eat, it's vile, but just pure,

  • and I forget why I'm supposed to eat it,

  • but the cottage cheese.

  • Just eating a lot of cottage cheese.

  • There's some nutrient I'm supposed to get from it.

  • Well I invented, well it definitely existed before,

  • I probably didn't invent this.

  • But I invented this like weird thing,

  • where I like make a thin thing with a tomato.

  • And then I like chop some avocado on it.

  • And then I put like a bit of nutritional yeast on it.

  • Like salt and pepper, and it's like a weird little sandwich.

  • It's quite good, it's a weird snack.

  • Although now, it's giving me heartburn

  • 'cause tomatoes cause heartburn, or something (laughing),

  • they're like acidic, I don't know.

  • I eat a lot of xiao long bao, or dumplings.

  • That's one of my primary dinner, favorite dinner things.

  • Dumplings are pretty fantastic.

  • Dumplings are like spaghetti,

  • where they're one of these incredible foods

  • that always tastes good.

  • But unlike spaghetti, they have more like nutrients.

  • I love hot dogs because they don't kill cows for hot dogs.

  • So it's like you can eat hot dogs without guilt,

  • if you need meat but you still have vegan tendencies,

  • or you wanna try to like avoid creating demand for stuff.

  • 'Cause it's just all the waste,

  • it's all the extra product, so.

  • I'm a huge proponent of hot dogs actually.

  • And it is the best tasting meat as well,

  • so it's basically a win, win.

  • Well, the best hot dog place is Vicious Dogs in L.A.

  • I get the Green Hornet,

  • where the just put avocado all over it,

  • and it's like super spicy.

  • And it's just like a hot dog

  • with like tons of like guacamole.

  • I like the food in L.A., but I'm from Vancouver,

  • which is like a pretty good food city.

  • I think Tokyo might be the best food city.

  • There's one Japanese spaghetti place in L.A.,

  • it's called Pasta e Pasta, and it's in Little Tokyo.

  • And you can get like the Japanese style spaghetti.

  • But which a lot of people tell

  • me it's like not a real thing.

  • But, I don't know, like the noodle seems slightly thinner,

  • it's a bit saltier.

  • It's just like, there's like a slight nuance

  • to this Japanese spaghetti that I think is quite special.

  • Dinner date?

  • I mean, this is probably sort of like a crazy thing to say,

  • but I've definitely been on a great dinner date

  • to Mastro's Steakhouse, I guess.

  • It just feels really mobby in there.

  • Lots of like old men, in like suits,

  • with like pinky rings, like eating steaks.

  • And I'm just like, "Whoa."

  • Right now I'm not drinking at all,

  • but love like dark beer, I guess.

  • Like I love like thick beer.

  • I also really love kombucha,

  • which, I recently discovered,

  • doesn't actually contain anything good for you.

  • Oh, I really like, right now, I'm drinking a lot of kefir.

  • It actually, lately, it's just the one

  • pregnancy craving I have is just actually a glass of milk.

  • Which is so weird, because I haven't had a glass of milk

  • in like, probably 20 years.

  • But lately, I've just been having a glass of milk.

  • Just cows milk.

  • It's probably become clear,

  • that I'm not vegan during this time,

  • this trying time (laughs).

  • And that's everything I eat in a day.

  • Thanks for watching.
