Meghan Markle couldn’t have predicted that she would become the Duchess of Sussex, and so, much to our delight, she shared a few things during her time as an actress on Suits that she most likely would like to keep to herself these day.
From her workouts to her makeup essentials, everything you want to know about the new Royal family member is on the internet.
Back in the day she also shared in detail her love of food and what she typically eats in the day.
Speaking to Delish, Meghan spoke about her go-to meals, love of wine and how she cut out gluten to clear her skin.
Read on for what Markle’s typical diet actually looked like below, plus a few cooking hacks from the Duchess herself.
We wonder if she still sticks to the same diet now that she lives in Nottingham Cottage located on the grounds of grand royal estate, Kensington Palace…
During her time on Suits Meghan’s call time was usually 4.15am and she religiously started her day with a glass of hot water with lemon, known to be a wonder for the digestive system.
Later in the morning she’d have a well-balanced bowl of steel cut oats topped with bananas and agave nectar to keep her going until lunch time.
After the very early start it’s not surprising Meghan would be ready for lunch at 12pm. She’d typically fill up on a salad topped with some kind of lean protein like chicken or salmon. She’d follow this with an apple with almond butter.
Markle’s ideal dinner is an plate of pasta with zucchini, lots of Parmesan, and a glass of wine.
But she did share with Delish that she manages to swerve using lots of butter and oil with a genius slow cooking hack.
Meghan swears bt slow-cooking zucchini for four to five hours until it breaks down into a mushy consistency. She then tosses it 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 explained.
Like Khloe Kardashian, Meghan is a big fan of snacking to keep her blood sugar balanced during a long day on set.
She would refuel usually with a handful of almonds, a green juice, or the another apple and almond butter combination.
She spoke about how she has used green juice as a replacement for coffee replacement, drinking it as a way to boost her energy rather than replace a meal.
“Green juice is a food-as-medicine philosophy for me,” she explained.
We like a woman who priorities indulgence here at IndulgeMe, and Meghan wasn’t shy about confessing her “vices” that include French fries and a “big, beautiful red” glass of wine.
The wine lover is a big fan of Tignanello, which actually inspired the name of her former lifestyle site, The Tig.
But she would never say no to an Argentinian Malbecs, French cabs, and pinot noirs from Oregon.
“In the summer, though, when I’m out with my friends, it’s rosé all day,” she added.
