Leonardo Da Vinci Giant Whisk

    If you want to be healthy observe this regime.

    Do not eat when you have no appetite and dine lightly,

    Chew well, and whatever you take into you

    Should be well-cooked and of simple ingredients.

    He who takes medicine is ill advised

    Beware anger and avoid stuffy air.

    Stay standing a while when you get up from a meal.

    Make sure you do not sleep at midday.

    Let your wine be mixed with water, take little at a time

    Not between meals, nor on an empty stomach.

    Neither delay nor prolong your visit to the toilet.

    If you take exercise, let it not be too strenuous.

    Do not lie with your stomach upward and your head

    Downward. Be well covered at night,

    And rest your head and keep your mind cheerful.

    Avoid wantonness and keep to this diet.

- Leonardo da Vinci, 1515 (reprinted from Dave Dewitt’s Da Vinci’s Kitchen: A Secret History of Italian Cuisine)
