Manuca Honey

There is nothing like a celebrity to create awareness of a healthy product and the fact that Meghan Markle, who is due to marry Prince Harry this April, loves Manuka honey will surely create an influx of Manaka honey users.

Meghan will no doubt have some challenges with her diet, as the Royals are known to be very finicky eaters. The self-proclaimed foodie, however, does not appear to be willing to bend when it comes to the food she loves, though.

During a recent interview with Shape Magazine, she stated, “I think if you deprive yourself of anything you’re just going to crave it more, so for me it’s just finding that balance. Eating really good during the week and then treating yourself to whatever is that that you want over the weekend.”

Some of her favorite foods include:

  • Pasta
  • Fries
  • Fish tacos
  • Sushi
  • Watermelon
  • Roast chicken
  • Hot sauce
  • Eggs
  • Quinoa

Markle also likes to incorporate Manuka honey into her Acai bowls, which also include almond milk, berries, bananas, coconut flakes, and bee pollen.

Keeping Markle’s favorite foods in mind, we found a couple of Acai bowl recipes we think you will enjoy.
