As previously mentioned, Laren Stover wrote in her book The Bombshell Manual of Style that Marilyn Monroe liked to start her day with some freshly squeezed orange juice at around 8 a.m. However, she also liked to accompany that drink with some stewed prunes.
While this choice might be surprising for some, Monroe did have her reasons. According to Stover, Monroe used this dietary habit in order to lose weight. Otherwise, she would enjoy some raw eggs, milk, and multivitamins.
