How to Eat and Drink Like Meghan Markle

To say the world is obsessed with Meghan Markle right now would be a bit of an understatement. Not is her wedding to Prince Harry one of the most hotly anticipated royal weddings in history, but she also is totally gorgeous, caring, and relatable (beyond that whole royal thing). So who wouldn’t want to be just like Meghan Markle? And who wouldn’t want to eat and drink like her?

Before she was engaged to be married to one of the most famous men in the world, Markle founded her own lifestyle brand, The Tig. The now-defunct website cataloged her favorite foods, drinks, kitchen tips and hacks, and party planning tips. So the nuances of her diet are very much out there.

A true California girl at heart, Markle has always been focused on sustainable foods and a healthy lifestyle. So while she’s not one to be afraid of the occasional indulgent meal of French fries and pasta carbonara, she tends to eat fresh, simple foods like green juice, sushi, and hot water with lemon. She’s incredibly health-conscious and would stick to a vegan diet during the week while filming her hit TV show Suits. We imagine she's eating like a royal already, but we’re pretty sure that the newlywed will continue with her healthy habits and uniquely American quirks, so here is how to and drink like Meghan Markle.

Acai Bowls

Though her home base will soon be London, Meghan Markle is a California girl through and through. So it logical one of her go-to breakfasts would be this trendy dish. In addition to the ultra-healthy Brazilian acai berry, some of Markle’s favorite ingredients include strawberries, almond milk, and honey — or at least that’s what she put in her breakfast bowl during a kitchen session with Eye-Swoon. If you want to try your own hand at this Insta-worthy breakfast, consider this smoothie bowl.

Boxed Macaroni And Cheese

One of Markle’s biggest guilty pleasures? Macaroni and cheese. In that same Eye-Swoon interview, she mentioned she craves this childhood classic from time to time, so she’ll buy a box, throw in some frozen peas, and enjoy this simple comfort. Though she was embarrassed to admit she loves Annie’s Macaroni and Cheese, it was our favorite in a blind taste test, so she clearly has good taste.

Fish Tacos

Fish Tacos

Fish tacos are another favorite food of Meghan Markle. She told Today she was “conditioned to like Baja-style food from the womb.” She enjoys a simple, flaky white fish with grilled peppers and onions and a squirt of lime juice, just like this quick and easy fish taco recipe.

French Fries

French Fries

Though Meghan Markle tends to keep her diet super healthy, she isn’t afraid of a little indulgence, and she told Delish one of her biggest vices is French fries. And while England has some pretty good “chips,” they have nothing on America’s 50 best fries.

Garbanzo Beans

Garbanzo Beans

A part of Meghan Markle’s healthy diet is a simple snack like hummus with crackers and baby carrots. But she told Today that she actually loves garbanzo beans “in any iteration.”

Green Juices

Green Juices

Though an afternoon pick-me-up in the royal family involves high tea, Meghan Markle’s traditional go-to has been a green juice. She told Today she’ll blend together apple, kale, spinach, lemon, and ginger for a quick energy boost and that she finds it more energizing than espresso! That’s just the power of a good superfood.

Hot Water With Lemon

Hot Water With Lemon

Meghan Markle told Delish that she started every day filming on Suits with a glass of hot water with lemon. She’s not the only famous person who starts her day that way! Here’s what the most famous people drink every morning.

Meyer Lemons

Seriously. You can take the girl out of California, but you can’t take the California out of the girl. Markle told Eye-Swoon that this particular lemon is a top-five pantry staple, and we bet it’s the inspiration behind her wedding cake.

Omelettes With Fresh Herbs, Cheese, and Toast

Omelettes With Fresh Herbs, Cheese, and Toast

Markle keeps her diet super healthy and vegan during the weekdays, but she also understands the importance of the occasional indulgence. Her favorite breakfast? A French-inspired omelette with fresh herbs, cheese, and toast. That’s an egg-cellent way to prepare eggs!

Pasta

Pasta

Markle loves carbs, and has cited pasta as a favorite food in multiple interviews. She told Delish she likes to slow-cook zucchini for four to five hours to make an indulgent-tasting but healthy pasta sauce, and she mentioned to Eye-Swoon she could make cacio e pepe pasta with her eyes closed. She tops it off with some Parmesan cheese and calls it a day!

Roast Chicken

Roast Chicken

Prince Harry proposed to Markle at home over a roast chicken dinner, so if this dish wasn’t already one of her favorites, it certainly is now! But it always has been. In 2016, she told Good Housekeeping that an “Ina Garten-level roasted chicken recipe” is her go-to potluck dish. And these 25 recipes prove that roast chicken is a simple thing to whip up.

Seafood

Seafood

Markle is a noted seafood fan. She told Today that one of her go-to dinner party dishes is cioppino, an Italian fish stew made with shrimp, mussels, clams, and other hearty fishes. Of course, like a true Californian, she’s also a noted lover of sushi.

Steak

Steak

Before turning into a member of the royal family, Markle ran a lifestyle website and was a noted foodie and home cook. She told Delish her own tip for making steak tender and delicious: a squirt of lemon. "Nobody tastes the lemon, but it really brings out the steak's flavor," she claimed.

Tignanello Wine

Tignanello Wine

What was the name of Markle’s lifestyle website, you ask? The Tig! And it was named for her favorite wine: Tignanello, an Italian red wine made of 85 percent sangiovese, 10 percent cabernet sauvignon, and 5 percent cabernet franc grapes.

Watermelon

Watermelon

Markle’s favorite healthy snack is watermelon. She told today she will “relish any opportunity to eat [the fruit].” Her favorite way to prepare watermelon is a bit unexpected: in a salad with feta, mint, and olive oil. She also likes watermelon sprinkled with cinnamon. It’s an interesting combination for sure, and one we honestly expect not to see at the royal wedding, along with these 10 other things.
