Meghan Markle’s Weirdly Easy Diet Explains Why She’s Always Glowing

If you want to eat like the Duchess of Sussex, here’s some good news — Meghan Markle spilled the beans about what her diet is like, and not only does it sound healthy, but it seems like she doesn’t close herself off to delicious snacks on occasion.

Markle is always glowing. That’s just a fact. But the Duchess looked extremely healthy and happy at the royal wedding, which took place on May 19th. Way back before she was officially in the royal family, she chatted about her typical diet to Readers Digest Best Health. And much like Markle herself, it’s super relatable.

“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,” she said to Melissa Greer.

Markle admitted she’s a huge fan of French fries and other carbs (who isn’t?) but tries to reel it in a bit when she’s filming. These days she’s retired from acting, but she’ll still have all eyes on her due to her royal status.

“I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends,” she revealed. “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.”


Markle, a fan of yoga, also said that she’d never deprive herself of wine or anything she enjoys. She says the best food is consumed in moderation. We’re not doctors, but we do totally agree.

We at So Yummy also believe in balance, but also that you can sneak in healthy ingredients in not-so-healthy meals. Take for example this sneaky mac ‘n cheese. It’s made with veggies, but you’d literally never know. Watch below for a recipe idea for tonight:

Meghan Markle has such a reasonable approach and really proves how vegan diets can be healthy and rewarding. Now, if only she told us how to land a guy like Prince Harry. Please send tips, Meghan!
