Don't forget the infamous world famous MacGyver bayou-burned blackened redfish! biggrin.gif ("Family Matter")

And yes- believe it or not, MacGyver has had coffee- I'm pretty sure that's what he took a sip of in the opening gambit of the "Pilot" episode.
And he does alude to having a morning coffee in "The Prodigal".

But then later on, he makes it more clear that he's much more into orange juice and has something of an aversion to coffee- or at least that's the impression I got.

I think MacGyver also has orange juice in "Countdown" and "The Survivors"
And wasn't that carrot juice he said he had in the air balloon at the start of "GX-1"?

Oh yeah- and he had a chocolate bar in the "Pilot" episode! biggrin.gif

He made somekind of protien drink - with a raw egg in it - in The Negotiator... with Deborah listening via her hidden microphone. (I think that was this ep... please correct me if I'm wrong...)

And he ate maybe one forkful of Pete's stew (I made it... well, out of a can...) in The Survivors.

He DIDN'T eat Faith and Hope's pea soup and crackers in "Faith, Hope & Charity".

I coulda sworn they never showed him eat Pete's stew ... I remember watching it a few times intently, seeing if he broke his sort-of vegetarian habits. Did I miss something???

And yer right, he made a protein shake with egg whites in The Negotiator, love that ep!


OH, doesn't Mac eat chicken in Jack in the Box. Jack had it hidden under the floor boards. Or did he just look at it? Been a few months.

He orders (but doesn't get to drink) coffee in last stand.

And didn't they have coffee in morning in Invisible killer? But turned out to be spiked with berries. I think they had coffee at the lookout tower too didn't they.. but we don't know if MacGyver had any or not.

You guys have great memories! I can't recall anything that he ate (or drank...)

I know he eats ice cream... it's in the opening credits. I know. Lame. (...and I call myself a fan.)

Ah - OK - I wasn't sure... going from memory here - doh.gif I haven't actually see the episode (The Survivors) for awhile - that scene at the table in the cabin just sticks in my mind - where Pete informs Mac that he is to be his last charge before being rotated off the assignment. Now that I think about it... I remember Mac just pushes the plate away - without eating anything.

MacGyver certainly did eat chicken in "Jack in the Box". I don't think he ever explicitly stated to be a vegetarian- I just know that he liked tofu and whipped bean curd every now and then. But he's also been seen eating fish and chicken and lizard, so he's not a strict vegetarian if he does claim to be one at all. (And I'm pretty sure he had eggs and bacon at the start of "Countdown" for breakfast- but I'll have to double check that before I can say for sure.)

Count me in to get a list together, if you end up doing that... I should have access to my DVDs after next week. Actually, I'd really love to watch it for something like that...

And like I said before, you all have amazing memories... biggrin.gif

I think that MacNymph has a great idea... we should each take an episode or two and make notes. I'm not so strict as to judge the things that Mac eats as 'what he actually puts in his mouth', I include food that is implied to be consumed, remembered, and handled (such as the brownies that he baked for the kids in 'Final Approach' and the pancakes he made for Crystal/Jennifer).


According to my research MacGyver consumes, remembers consuming, or attempts to consume, the following things:
**From Pilot episode until The Widowmaker**
Please note that this list was composed BEFORE I bought the unedited version of Season 1.

Coffee (pilot ep, Last Stand, Twice Stung, Silent World, total of 7 occasions up to--)
Chocolate bar (Pilot)
Broiled Chicken (Goldn Tri)
Chocolate ice cream (Thief)
Chili (Thief)
Roast lizard (Gauntlet)
Unknown h'orderve (during the 'exhibition scene' in The Heist)
Apple (Heist, Last Stand, total of 3 occasions up to--)
Virgin Mary w/ celery (tomato juice with tobasco) (Heist)
Red wine (Heist)
Mystery stew in the Pyrenees (Gambit prior to Trumbo's world)
Chewing gum (Hellfire)
Orange juice (Prodigal)
Soda/cola of some kind (Prodigal)
Carrot (gambit prior to Target:Mac)
Fish (Target:Mac, mulitple occasions up to--)
Egg roll (Enemy Within, OitC)
Milk (Slow Death)
Roast lamb sandwich (Slow Death)
Prison food (Escape)
Ginger ale (Eraser)
Stuffed olives (Eraser)
Alfalfa sprout sandwich (Eraser)
Bean curd (Eraser)
Yogurt (Eraser)
Pastrami on rye (peace offering/bribe) (Twice Stung)
Brownies (bribe) (Final Approach)
Mountain Trout w/ wild mushrooms and pinenuts (Final Approach)
Rattlesnake (that takes care of lunch!) (Final Approach)
Indian food (Silent World)
Egg nogg (non-alcoholic) (PF u/Siege)
Bayou Blackend Red Fish (burnt) / Cheeseburgers (Family Matters)
Tofu Casserole (Out/Cold)
Rations (jerky, bread) (Bushmaster)
Unknown sandwich-type food (Phil's Diner) (DOA:Mac)
Strawberries (GX-1)
Trail mix (GX-1)
Phillipe's Chicken (Jack/Box)
Orange fruit (Widow)


My research in ongoing.... so please feel free to regard this list as 'things to look for' in your own research, to use or disregard! smile.gif

... sadistic, merciless... biggrin.gif

um, yeah, the thing is, Rock... unsure.gif I noted what foods and how many times i saw it, but not exactly which episodes they are from (my notebook was starting to look like a retro-screenplay happy.gif )

I'll go through and make notes of where I saw what, as far as my memory will permit, and I'll gladly make such notes when I watch again. smile.gif

Do we want to note only the food we see Mac eat, or the food we see him handle, speak fondly in regard to, and otherwise imply the possiblility of?

I think we'll go with see him eat and implied that he ate.

We can put a little (implied) in the appropriate places so I can distinguish them.

That was orange juice. He didn't had any coffee as he later on said.

Now trying to fill up Loth's list.

He was chewing on something in The Heist during Caitlin's demonstration. Chewing gum?
Chinese food, egg rolls in Out in the Cold.
Some more chocolat in Bushmaster.
Water and nuts in GX-1.
The proteÔn shake in The Negotiator.
Some sort of a salad with housedressing in The Endangered.
Popsicle orange taste in The Secret of Parker House.
Whatever he was going to eat in The Outsiders. (Don't think it was shown whatever was in those pots)
An apple in Runners and also his famous MacGyver banana pancakes or something.
Hot chocolat? Tea? Coffee? In the finale of Gold Rush.
Egg Rolls in Second Chance. Think it was egg roles, or some other Thai food.
Beans in Serenity.
Whatever he ate with Amy in Log Jam. Any chance of spotting leftovers?
"Hawaiian Pizza with pineapple" in The Wall. Didn't eat it though.
Soup but not sure which soup in Harry's Will. No meal, no package.
Was he eating something in The Wasteland's restaurant scene?
He also had tomato juice in High Control.
Preparing soup/salad in There but for the grace.
Popcorn in Deadly Silence.
Another proteÔn shake in The Stringer.

There could be more though. Wasn't there a MacGyver Cookbook site once? Maybe we can make our own cookbook.

Edit: I just looked it up. Apparently there's only a recipe for chocolate chip cookies. Now I say we should do it. Making our own MacGyver Cookbook with recipes, ingrediŽnts and preparations.

Tofu makes great insoles for combat boots, and is good for filling balloons for the purposes of playing 'War'... but I wouldn't eat it! yucky.gif (kidding!) biggrin.gif

The bacteria in yogurt are GOOD bacteria - they help digestion. You may not LIKE yogurt, but for people who are lactose intolerant - like me (can't drink regular milk because they are deficient in an enzyme that helps to digest the sugar in milk) yogurt is OK to consume - the enzyme is in it - so no bad reaction. It's called "Cultured".
