Meghan’s Food And Diet SecretsMarch 22, 2019
Going in the final weeks of her pregnancy, Meghan is no stranger to the spotlight. But as the most-Googled person in the world last year, many want to know the secrets behind Meghan’s energy.
The Duchess has previously revealed her refreshing approach to eating well and exercising, saying it’s about prioritizing overall health and mental wellbeing.
Here are some hints Meghan has given about her wellness.
Chose green juice over coffee
While most people rely on chocolate or coffee to get through the afternoon, Meghan has a different approach.
“Green juice is a food-as-medicine philosophy for me,” Meghan told Delish before becoming a royal. “I think trying to go for coffee or things like that only end up hurting you in the end,” Meghan says she sips on green juice and kombucha in the afternoon to get her through long hours. They’re a “really good natural source of energy… that gets right into your system as a nice pick-me-up,” according to Meghan.
“If I blend some apple, kale, spinach, lemon and ginger in my Vitamix in the morning and bring it to work, I always find that sipping on that is a much better boost than a cup of espresso… the end of the day, your body will thank you for nourishing it with so much fresh goodness.”
She’s a vegan during the week
“I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends,” Meghan told Best Health in 2015. “But at the same time, it’s all about balance. Because I work out the way I do, I don’t ever want to feel deprived. I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things. It’s not a diet; it’s lifestyle eating.”
On weekends she doesn’t hold back
Meghan told Delish that when she was filming Suits in Canada she developed a love of poutine and beaver tails.”French fries – I could eat French fries all day. And I love pasta. I love carbs – who doesn’t love a carbohydrate?” Meghan told Best Health.
Meghan also loves macaroni and cheese. “I throw some frozen peas into it and have this gooey, simple, childlike meal,” she told Best Health. “I used to cook it for the kids I would babysit and I always enjoyed feeling like a kid and eating it with them,” she said. “I’m also not averse to eating tater tots. With ketchup and sriracha.”
Have a glass of wine
She probably hasn’t been drinking so much while pregnant, but she loves a glass of red wine. The lifestyle blog that she closed in 2018 was named The Tig, after her favourite Italian wine Tignanello.
Meghan previously told Best Health: “Of course I’m going to have that glass of wine – it’s delicious and I enjoy it. Do the things you enjoy within reason. Know your body and what works for you and you’ll be fine.”
