Forget eating breakfast “like a king.” I want to enjoy my first meal of the day like a duchess — in particular, Meghan Markle, a well-documented lover of green juices, aesthetically pleasing smoothie bowls, and avocados. As you’ve probably guess, she doesn’t bolt out the door in the morning with a travel coffee mug and a cereal bar. It’s far more luxe than that. Keep reading to find out how you can do breakfast like Meghan Markle.
All Meghan fans know that, before she entered British royalty, the actor also ran lifestyle blog The Tig — a curated space for fashion, beauty, and food (with much emphasis on the latter). Before “influencers” became the source of inspiration as we currently know them, the Duchess impressed upon her readers a love for wholesome dishes, made from clean and nutritious ingredients – and that includes when it comes to breakfast.
Unfortunately, Meghan abandoned The Tig and her social media accounts following her engagement to Prince Harry back in 2018. Yet there’s still remnants of the blog online thanks to savvy internet users who saved some of the pages before they went offline for good. Plus, there are interviews and guest posts from Meghan online where you can find out more about her favourite dishes.
I’ve done some digging and found nine breakfast recipes the Meghan swears by.
During 2017, açaí bowls heavily populated Instagram feeds — it was peak millennial content, and extremely aesthetically pleasing. It’s no surprise then that Meghan named açaí bowls as her favourite go-to breakfast dish and shared the followed recipe with blogger Athena Calderone:
Breakfast smoothies are about to get a little more interesting (and contain a lot less spinach) with this spiced coconut number. Meghan recommended this single serving coconut chai smoothie recipe from wellness coach Jennie Miremadi on The Tig in January 2017, say CNBC. They’ve managed to get their hands on the ingredients list. All you have to do is blend all of them together.
I’ve seldom found a breakfast menu that doesn’t include avocados and eggs — the holy grail of breakfast foods. But, how about putting the eggs inside the avocado? I know, this recipe Meghan shared on The Tig could be revolutionise your breakfast game.
There’s so much I love about toast in the morning, a failsafe when my working days were more hectic than lady of leisure. Meghan inspired The Tig readers to dress up their toast once in awhile using these recipes she found in one of her favourite magazines, The Chalkboard.
“Some days you have a bite of food that makes you go ‘woah,'” wrote Meghan after tasting the pumpkin seed and avocado toast at New York restaurant Little Collins. With such a glowing testimony from the Duchess, I’m inclined to try this “twist on a classic.”
Speaking to magazine The Chalkboard in 2018, Meghan shared some of her secrets to “living well,” revealing that one of her favourite go-to breakfast options is a “Clean Cleanse vanilla shake with blueberries.”
Plenty of online sources have suggested Meghan is fan of porridge in the morning (I mean, who isn’t?). “Steel cut oats are considered a power food because they’re packed with protein and fibre. Agave syrup is a honey-like sap thought to be healthier than sugar; its low glycemic index has less of an effect on blood glucose levels,” say Elite Daily. Plus, it’s simple to make. I’ll take that.
From its title, this recipe doesn’t scream breakfast. Yet its creator lifestyle influencer and former Tig contributor, Nicole Centuro, says the leftovers from this soup make a great spiced breakfast option. It’s not as simple a recipe as, say, cereal, but could make an interesting breakfast addition on a slow Sunday.
