Along with a mug of hot water with lemon.

But she says she allows herself a little more flexibility on the weekends.

3. Two of her favorite indulgences are red wine and French fries.

Her favorite red is Tignanello, though she's also a fan of Argentinian Malbecs, French Cabernets, and Pinot Noirs from Oregon.

4. She loves Tignanello so much, in fact, that she named her (now defunct) lifestyle blog after it.

While active, The Tig published content related to food, travel, fashion, and social issues.

5. She was apparently roasting a chicken when Prince Harry popped the question.

"If you have an Ina Garten-level roasted-chicken recipe, it's a game changer," Markle told Good Housekeeping. And indeed it was, at least on this occasion. Get the recipe for a roast chicken here.

6. She swaps coffee for green juice, especially in the afternoon.

Her favorite juicing ingredients? Apple, kale, spinach, lemon and ginger.

7. Meghan's favorite healthy snacks are sliced fruit with almond butter, almonds, and green juice.

8. True to her California roots, she's a fan of fish tacos — specifically, salmon tacos from Fresh Corn Grill.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Meghan once said that few things make her happier than a few bites of a good fish taco. We're thinking her list of joys have probably changed by now, but fish tacos have gotta rank high on that list still, right?

9. She once had a life-changing plate of Pad Thai outside of Bangkok.

She told Delish: "I took a bite and said, 'oh my God, what have I been eating all my life? This is what Pad Thai's supposed to taste like?'"

10. She lives by the ethos that "most things can be cured with either yoga, the beach or a few avocados."

Hard agree.

11. She refers to her food baby as "comida."

It means 'food' in Spanish. (I've named mine "Tomasso." Can our food babies be friends, Meghan?)

12. One of her favorite comfort meals is a slow-cooked Filipino-style chicken adobo.

She cooks it with garlic, soy, lemon, and vinegar until the chicken "falls off the bone." Get a recipe for slow-cooked chicken adobo here.

13. She (obviously) loves rosé.

"In the summer, when I'm out with my friends, it's rosé all day," she's said.

14. One of her snacks of choice is watermelon sprinkled with cinnamon.

Meghan says the cinnamon "elevates the flavor."

15. And one of her go-to pasta recipes is a slow-cooked zucchini sauce.

The sauce is made creamy through a slow-cooking process that breaks the summer squash down into a buttery texture. Get the recipe here.

16. As a royal, Meghan has to steer clear of foods like shellfish and rare meat to prevent the chance of food poisoning.

According to The Sun, a “rule prevents the queen and other royals from eating foods like mussels and rare steak when dining out.”

17. She developed her love of food as a kid on the set of Married With Children, where her dad worked as a lighting director.

As she described to Best Health, Meghan used to visit the set as a kid and help out in craft services, "where they make all the food and nibbles."
