Meghan Markle's Vegan Diet: Let’s Have A Look

meghan markle s vegan diet  let s have a look | Upload

The way the Duchess of Sussex eats is incredibly healthy and still allows room to treat herself. After a weekend full of royal wedding madness, Meghan Markle is now the Duchess of Sussex after she married Prince Harry at St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. The entire world watched as she made her way down the aisle (letting her natural freckles steal the show!). And naturally, she looked stunning in her Givenchy dress, which no doubt left most of us wondering: How does she look so dang good? Well, the way she eats likely plays a part.

Why Meghan Markle Follows A Vegan Diet But Only During The Week

In an interview with Readers Digest Best Health, Markle revealed she sticks to a vegan diet during the week and gives herself a little more wiggle room to indulge on the weekends. I don't just take care of myself for aesthetic reasons, but because how I feel is dictated by what I'm eating, how much rest I'm getting, and how much water I'm drinking, Markle said.

What Are The Benefits Of Eating A Plant-Based Diet?

Plant-based foods can completely change the way you feel: Research shows that eating a vegan diet can help you maintain a healthy weight reduce your risk of several chronic health problems, like heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and even certain cancers. On top of that, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is excellent for your skin, according to a 2014 review. And you don't have to go completely vegetarian or vegan to reap the rewards of eating more plants, says Ginger Hultin, MS, RDN, CSO, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Loading up on vegetables, fruits, legumes, nuts, and seeds means you're packing in more fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals, she explains. At the same time, you're taking in less saturated fat, all factors that contribute to a reduced risk of disease.

This doesn't mean you need to adopt a strictly vegan diet and omit all animal foods. Some non-vegan foods can also be beneficial and essential such as fish, eggs, and dairy, which adds Lisa Moskovitz, RD, CDN, and The NY Nutrition Group.

(The food served at the royal wedding had a great mix of healthy eats, which included lean proteins like salmon and chicken alongside seasonal vegetables. Overall, just aiming for at least 2 to 3 cups of vegetables, 1 to 2 servings of fruits and 1 to 2 ounces of nuts and seeds per day can make all the difference. You may even feel an immediate change in energy levels, digestion, sleep, and mood, says Moskovitz.

Just note that going full-on vegan does mean you could fall short on specific nutrients, like protein, vitamin B12, iron, calcium, vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids, according to a review published in the Journal of the American Osteopathic Association. However, Hultin stresses that if you eat a balanced plant-based diet (meaning you put a little more effort into planning out your meals), you shouldn't have this issue. People who do include meat also need to ensure they're meeting all of these nutrients as well, Hultin says.
Even though she's conscious of what she eats, Markle still isn't one to restrict herself. It's all about balance! Because I work out the way I do, I don't ever want to feel deprived, Markle stated in an interview. I think that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things.

Do The Things You Enjoy Within Reason.

Some of her favorite foods to indulge in? Red wine, pasta, and French fries. Allowing yourself permission to eat foods you enjoy once in a while is essential to prevent feelings of deprivation and undue stress, says Moskovitz. Restricting too much or not allowing yourself any foods, especially ones you used to love, can lead to over-eating and possibly binge eating. This can affect your overall relationship with food and make eating way more stressful than it should ever be. Markle echoed that very sentiment in her interview: “Do the things you enjoy within reason,” she stated. Know your body and what works for you, and you'll be fine.

Greens

Meghan isn’t the biggest fan of green juices. "green juice is a food-as-medicine philosophy for me." But if push comes to shove, she might have one.

Poutine

Meghan supposedly mastered poutine, a famous Canadian specialty, which pretty much is fries smothered in cheese curds and gravy. Many people, though, use the wrong kind of cheese. She says, "It's got to squeak when you bite into it. Really. The cheese curds should make a squeaking noise when you bite into them or squeeze them. That's how you know you've got the right kind."

Gluten-Free

Though she isn’t allergic, she just swears it’s the way to radiant skin. Meghan does admit that "However, when I'm traveling, I won't miss an opportunity to try great pasta.”

A friend convinced Meghan to slow-cook zucchini for four to five hours until it breaks down into a mushy like substance, which you can toss with pasta. "The sauce gets so creamy, you'd swear there's tons of butter and oil in it, but it's just zucchini, water, and a little bouillon," Meghan says.

Loves Wine

As we all do, wine is a must, especially for Meghan. The new royal admits that vino is one of her secret vices. Her favorite, of course, is Tignanello; she loves it so much she named her new lifestyle website after it but made sure to make a little side note that "in the summer, though, when I'm out with my friends, it's rosé all day."

Acai Bowls

Meghan has also made it no secret that she loves an acai bowl for breakfast. She made her favorite acai bowl recipe, which includes bananas, berries, almond milk, coconut flakes, manuka honey, and bee pollen.

Lemons

Meghan swears the secret to her stunning complexion is by having a glass of hot water with lemon every morning, which she'd follow that up with steel-cut oatmeal and banana.

Protein

As much as the rest of her food habits go, she will always have a side of protein. Meghan likes steak, with her little steak hack, to squeeze lemon all up on the meat right before serving, "It brings out the steak's flavor."

Snacking

As bad as snacking goes, Meghan usually stocks up on a few almonds if she’s still feeling a little hungry. She also enjoys watermelon with a variety of seasonings. "I have always loved watermelon and relish any opportunity to eat it, whether plain or diced up with feta and mint and tossed with a little olive oil. "It makes me think of summertime. Onset, and at home, I try always to have a container of watermelon sprinkled with cinnamon because it elevates the flavor just a notch, and makes it feel special."

Fries for life

We all have our guilty pleasure, Meghan admits that; "I'm always hoping I'm having lunch with people so that we can share fries. It's its food group for me."

Dinner Plans

As you can imagine being the duchess isn’t easy, there are lots of long lunches, which don’t leave her overly hungry for dinner, so Meghan would usually opt for soup for dinner. But on occasion, Meghan ravishes over a perfect roast chicken. Markle revealed a 'perfectly roasted chicken' to be among her favorite foods.

I'm interested in everything that has to do with sustainability. My house is solar powered and I have my own water supply and filtering system.  I grow my own vegetables and fruit. Most of the time I go on the road by bicycle and for long distances I use public transport.
