What Is Meghan Markle's Diet? A Look at the Soon-to-Be Royal's Surprising Eating Habits

One expert weighs in on how the actress eats so healthy.

Meghan Markle will have the eyes of the world upon her in just six weeks when she walks down the aisle to marry Prince Harry, and much like other brides, the American actress wants to look her best, and doing so relies mostly on her diet. 

Nutritionist Joy Bauer, the author of "From Junk Food to Joy Food," spoke to Inside Edition about what Markle eats. 

"She primarily focuses on a plant-based diet," Bauer said. "That is probably why she looks so darn good."

She starts her day with an acai bowl.

“An acai is an antioxidant-rich berry,” Bauer explained. “The cool thing about these bowls is that you get to create all sorts of nutrient-rich toppings.” 

Lunch for the future royal is always a salad filled with plenty of veggies and usually a non-meat protein source. Markle also loves sushi.

"Meghan says she doesn’t eat a lot of meat and instead she gets her protein from beans and lentils. Beans, whether they are black beans, kidney beans, chickpeas, are one of the healthiest foods on the planet," Bauer said. 

Now and then, Markle does treat herself. She loves pasta, even with creamy sauces. When she lunches with friends, she loves to share an order of French fries and sometimes a glass of wine.

“Meghan follows what I like to call a ’90-10 food philosophy.’ She goes out of her way 90 percent of the time to eat smart and 10 percent of the time she just goes with it. If something looks incredibly delicious, she indulges," Bauer said.
