What does Ruth Langsford eat for lunch?
Before the coronavirus pandemic began, Ruth shared a video of herself and her mum enjoying lunch at a restaurant. She opted for a smoked salmon, avocado, cream cheese, lettuce and cucumber open sandwich, alongside a "frothy coffee". Again, the large variety of food groups would help to harness Ruth's hormones during the menopause, while giving her plenty of energy to tackle the day.
Ruth previously shared an omelette she made for lunch
More recently, she shared a video of an omelette she made at home following her daily walk. She wrote, "Using what I could find in the fridge omelette! Peppers, onions, courgette, garlic. Finished off under the grill with Parmesan cheese."

What does Ruth Langsford eat for dinner?
Dinner is just as delicious as the rest of Ruth's day in meals. She often shares her recipes on social media, including this 'Cheat's meatballs' creation, using shop-bought meatballs, frozen onions, frozen garlic, olive oil, tomatoes, beef Oxo cubes, dried basil and bay leaves. What's key to take from Ruth's approach to dieting is that a) ingredients for her meals are easily obtainable, and b) her methods won't take up much of your time.
Prior to lockdown, Ruth also enjoyed dinner out at restaurants with her husband Eamonn Holmes. She shared this video of a Lebanese meal, where she opted for what seems to be a chicken and pork combination, with rice, chips and tomatoes.
And alcohol? When Eamonn quipped on This Morning, "Imagine how much more gorgeous you could be if you gave up booze," Ruth replied, "Never going to happen, I don't care now, I'm too old to worry."
