Kate Middleton has begun making her first appearances since giving birth to Prince George starting with accompanying her husband, Prince Will, to greet runners at a marathon that took place in Anglesey in North Wales. She looked at gorgeous as always and had mothers around the world envying her for already being able to wear a pair of dark skinny pants paired with wedge heels and an adorable top by Zara. So just exactly how is this new mom getting her figure back? According to a very informative and interesting article by Vanity Fair, new mom Kate has been enjoying healthy fruit smoothies in the morning and snacking on her favorite muesli bars. I am always up for learning diet secrets from my favorite celebrities so let’s see what some other famous celebrities eat as their favorite healthy treats.
1. Jillian Michaels
Jillian Michaels freely admits that one of her favorite healthy treats is Popchips. Popchips is a snack that is low calorie, low fat and has no added preservatives. It is not fried like potato chips so it is a much healthier option for a snack to turn to when you need something that gives a crunch.
2. Gwyneth Paltrow
This lovely blonde star freely admits that she has a love affair with KIND bars. She credits her mother for introducing her to them. This snack bar is made with health in mind. They are gluten free and made from fruits and nuts. They are an enjoyable snack that is also good for you. Gwyneth can enjoy these as her favorite healthy treat with no guilt later.
3. Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood is another star that loves a snack bar. Her favorite healthy treat is a snack bar by Kashi. Kashi is a brand that prides itself on making healthy, natural products. I have tried several of them and found them to be tasteful and still good for you.
4. Katie Holmes
Gorgeous Katie Holmes is another fan of a snack bar when she wants to indulge in a favorite healthy treat. Her favorite snack bar is a Larabar, which is a snack bar made from fruit, nuts and spices. The Larabar brand gives credit to the fact that their bars are made from pure and whole food in explaining why they are so popular.
5. Genesis Rodriguez
Genesis Rodriguez is a girl after my own heart. Her favorite healthy treat is a simple peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You can kick up the healthiness factor by using whole wheat bread, natural or organic peanut butter and a pure fruit spread.
6. Selena Gomez
Selena Gomez actually says that Reese’s and pickles are her favorite snack and she likes them together. It doesn’t sound good to me but it seems to work for her. She still has a gorgeous figure in spite of the candy bars she enjoys when she wants a treat. This one isn’t so healthy unless you count the peanut butter as a benefit.
7. Eva Longoria
Eva Longoria freely admits that one of her favorite healthy treats is guacamole. Although guacamole is a bit high in calories, it is full of healthy fats that make this a very good snack choice. If you pair it with baked chips instead of fried ones then you have a tasty snack that is good for you too.
8. Jennifer Hudson
Jennifer Hudson says that she loves Vitamuffin tops. These little snacks are soft like a cookie, enjoyable like a cookie but do not crash your diet like other sweet treats would. They come in around 100 calories each so they are easy to work into a diet plan and not a bad choice for healthy favorite treats. Chocolate actually has lots of endorphins in it.
9. Rachel McAdams
Rachel McAdams says that when she needs a snack between meals, she reaches for veggies. It is easy to see that this favorite healthy treat has helped her to look stunningly gorgeous. It would not hurt most of us to choose veggies to snack on a little more often.
10. Aimee Garcia
Aimee Garcia says that she loves to have a protein smoothie with banana and chocolate when she wants to indulge in a favorite healthy treat. She says that it is a great choice to have after a workout when you need to replenish your energy.
11. Dreama Walker
Dreama Walker is a celebrity I can definitely relate to when it comes to her favorite healthy treats. She admits that she has a weakness for sweets but has found that when she eats fruit instead, it makes a very good substitute. I have used this little trick myself and have found it to be very effective.
12. Taylor Swift
Taylor Swift keeps her svelte figure by choosing a favorite healthy treat such as a bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch. While this isn’t a perfect snack, it isn’t terrible, either. Like most cereals, it is fortified with vitamins and minerals. Combined with milk which gives a bit of protein and a good source of calcium, you could certainly do worse.
13. Kourtney Kardashian
Kourtney Kardashian is a star that ate healthfully even when she was pregnant. Her favorite healthy treats were fruit platters and smoothies which is probably how she managed to stay so lovely throughout her pregnancy. Fruit smoothies can be surprisingly filling for breakfast, too.
14. Nicole Richie
Nicole Richie’s favorite healthy snacks are almonds and roasted seaweed. She definitely makes healthy choices when she is the mood for something to tide her over in between meals. Seaweed is gaining popularity as a food item and may even become a mainstream food choice soon.
15. Jennifer Aniston
Jennifer Aniston’s favorite healthy treat is kale chips. I had never heard of these before but apparently you take fresh leafy kale, spritz with olive oil and bake until crispy. They can be flavored in many different ways, including just using plain salt and pepper.
