Royal experts say that Kate inherited her iron will and love for a healthy lifestyle from her mother. Carole Middleton looks great at 63 and gets compliments from Karl Lagerfeld himself. I have gathered interesting facts about the Duchess of Cambridge's eating patterns and beauty secrets that help her stay an inspirational person for many women around the world.
RAW FOOD DIET ONCE A WEEK
In her interviews, Kate says that she has always had a good appetite but tries to strictly monitor what she eats. According to her dietitian’s advice, after pregnancy, the Duchess introduced a raw day once a week. The menu for the raw day includes fruits and vegetables without heat treatment, as well as a large amount of lemon water.
FAVORITE DIET DISH
As you know, Prince William's favorite dish is chicken curry. He prefers the spiciest version of the recipe. But his wife often chooses a flavorful vegetable curry that she cooks on family holidays.
The Duchess of Cambridge doesn’t mind including alcoholic beverages into her diet. She likes New Zealand dry wine. Her favorite kinds of wine are Pinot Gris and Riesling. Prince William’s wife combines them with fish dishes and vegetable snacks.
Just like their mother, Kate and Pippa never eat any sweets or desserts. The Duchess of Cambridge makes an exception once a year when they have a Christmas feast at her parents' house. Prince William’s wife prefers eating iris pudding. The recipe for this dessert has been passed down through generations in Kate Middleton’s family.
In addition to the raw day, Kate drinks her favorite green smoothie every day as part of her intensive post-pregnancy diet. This smoothie is made from cabbage leaves, avocado, spinach, coriander, blueberries, and a few tablespoons of spirulina powder. The drink is rich in antioxidants. It strengthens Kate's immune system and makes her skin radiant.
Kate Middleton’s fans note that despite her love for healthy food, Kate likes eating popcorn. She often orders a packet of her favorite snack during matches, but completely excludes it during pregnancy. According to insiders, after pregnancy, Kate prefers healthy snacks and drinks a fresh berry smoothie with oatmeal.
FAVORITE CARDIOVASCULAR EXERCISES
Several times a year, the Royal family goes to ski resorts where Kate enjoys skiing for 5-7 hours daily.
In addition to winter sports, the Duchess often goes to the swimming pool or does her favorite crossfit workouts that help Kate keep fit for many years. After giving birth, Kate’s sports activities have become more intense and include daily 1-hour long tennis classes, as well as cross-country running.
