Sarah Jessica Parker’s diet

She either skips breakfast, or goes all out.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s diet: Breakfast can vary wildly for Sarah Jessica, she told Grub Street in 2021. “I don’t usually eat breakfast unless I’m shooting, and when I’m shooting, I have a full, massive, crazy breakfast,” she said. “When I’m home and going to work on my own, I’ll get up really early and just have coffee.”

If she does grab breakfast, it might be a bagel from her favorite local shop, paired with Kerrygold butter, mustard, and salami. Or, she might reach for a soft-boiled egg with salt and pepper, along with some mango, avocado, and cottage cheese.

She prefers sandwiches or power shakes for lunch.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s diet: When lunchtime rolls around, Sarah Jessica is partial to a spicy tuna sandwich, featuring tuna, jalapenos, hot sauce, pesto, and bread, she told Grub Street. She’ll eat her meal with a power shake of banana, strawberries, vanilla milk, and ice. Sarah Jessica also likes to have leftovers, like soup or stir-fry, per the piece.

She gets creative with dinner.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s diet: Dinner is a big thing in the Parker-Broderick household. The family eats together “every night,” Sarah Jessica shared on the Ruthie’s Table 4 podcast.

“If I’m shooting or he’s doing a play, obviously that shifts around,” she explained. “We always have dinner Sunday night, but one of us—if we’re home—cooks every single day, and we love to cook.”

Sarah Jessica Parker’s diet: But, SJP’s husband Matthew is an even bigger chef than her, she told Grub Street.

“I don’t look at recipes nearly as much as [Matthew] does, and he’s not daunted by a lot of steps,” Sarah said. “He’s very still; he doesn’t run around the kitchen like I do. He’s enormously patient, he’s tranquil, and he loves it. He’s a fantastic cook. I cook all the time too, but I don’t read recipes nearly as much.”

Sarah Jessica Parker’s diet: Dinner might be something like matzo ball soup or Matthew’s Bolognese. “Everybody goes crazy for it. In the last 10 months, I would say he’s done four or five different versions,” Sarah Jessica said. “He’s done Rachael Ray’s, he’s done Ina Garten’s, and he’s been doing a good old-fashioned Bon Appétit recipe, which is the one that cooks for three and a half hours. For some reason, we all love this one. It’s a little heavier—it’s more old school. It cooks and cooks and cooks and just haunts you all day.”

The couple also makes their own chicken stock “all the time,” Sarah Jessica added.

Of course, she still enjoys a good cosmo.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s diet: Sarah Jessica’s Carrie Bradshaw loved a cosmopolitan, and she does IRL, too. “We drink wine, but I still love a cocktail,” she said. “To be honest, I really do love a cosmopolitan. I don’t know how to make them well, but I genuinely love them.”

By the way, she said that didn’t happen until “long after” she stopped shooting SATC and the SATC movies.

She encourages her daughters to have a healthy relationship with food.

Sarah Jessica Parker’s diet: When she was growing up, Sarah Jessica and her siblings weren’t allowed to have eat sugar, sweet treats, or white bread at home. This had the opposite effect that her parents wanted, she shared on the Ruthie’s Table 4 podcast.

“I never was very disciplined about it,” she explained. “I’m not really good at denying myself something.”

Now, she wants something different for her kids. “In our house, we have cookies, we have cake, we have everything, and I think as a result, you kind of have a healthier relationship,” she said. “And my daughters will have the figures they have, and hopefully they’ll be healthy. They’re athletes, and they enjoy food, and they have different palates.”

“I didn’t want them to have a relationship with food that was antagonistic, or they felt like it was their enemy and that they were going to have to, like, stake out a position with food,” she continued.
