How to take Meghan Markle’s diet to the next level


As a recent article in Hello Magazine revealed, Duchess Meghan Markle’s daily diet includes a range of plant-based foods to support her health conscious, balanced lifestyle. But why isn’t the mother-of-two taking her diet to the next level, and make it a fully vegan one?

Breakfast swaps for the perfect start to the day

According to authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, Meghan’s morning often starts with breakfast oats, made with almond and soy milk, and topped with bananas and agave syrup. What a fabulous choice!

Take your porridge to the next level by adding a range of different berries, as well as a teaspoon of seeds for extra omegas, calcium and protein. You can make it gluten-free by choosing brands like Amisa, Nature’s Path, Planet Organic or Superfoodies. Try one of our oat recipes for an easy and versatile change:


Egg-less alternatives for an even healthier brunch

Megan is also said to enjoy an omelette with cheese. Although deemed a healthy and protein-rich brunch item, but egg consumption has in fact been linked to heart disease, and strokes, type 2 diabetes, cancer and food poisoning. You can learn more about the impact eggs can have on your wellbeing on our Viva! Health blog. What better reason to switch to one of our vegan dishes, such as:


No need to miss out

The article also explains how Meghan sticks to a vegan diet for most of the week, due to the difference it makes to her skin and energy levels. The Duchess also reveals being impartial to a portion of chips. Same for us, Meghan! On the topic of her diet, she has said; “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.”

We couldn’t agree more, especially when it comes to a vegan diet. You certainly won’t miss out on some comfort food, and it only takes a few creative swaps to create scrumptious meals such as:


Scrumptious vegan Sunday suppers

Meghan is a big fan of Sunday dinners, and is said to love cooking big family meals. In the article, she describes her fondness of slow-cooked roasts and hearty meals, that make her ‘feel comforted’. Thankfully, these can also be cooked up fully vegan! For the ultimate Sunday supper, why not try:
