What does Pippa Middleton eat for breakfast?

Pippa likes to vary her morning meal, telling the i newspaper in 2018 that a typical breakfast was: "Almost everything, but lots of porridge or boiled eggs with soldiers," and said she "can't start the day properly" unless she has breakfast.

"My usual breakfast is either plain yoghurt with chopped fruit and toasted seeds, oats and nuts or toasted rye bread with eggs or avocado," she revealed.

Pippa also had a recipe suggestion for a quick and healthy breakfast: "Bircher muesli with fresh berries on top – you can even make a batch for the whole week."

She said: "I try to eat wholegrain, energy-fuelled carbohydrates and three meals a day. I also increase my portion sizes based on my training level, with lots of brown rice, lentils, quinoa and sweet potato, and for breakfast, porridge and rye toast."

Pippa previously spoke about her diet in her Mind & Body column for Waitrose Weekend in 2014.

The mum-of-two revealed: "I grew up with the belief that good health is about moderation in all things, so I'll be celebrating healthy living through exercise, a balanced diet and a little of the naughty stuff sprinkled in – I'm talking chocolate, crisps and occasional glass of wine,"

She continued: "I've never done Dukan, attempted Atkins or exercised religiously seven days a week but I do believe in making healthy choices – keeping refined carbs such as white bread and pasta to a minimum, and sticking to sensible portion sizes."

One of the recipes is Asian tuna with avocado salsa. Pippa writes: "This is a brilliantly zingy and refreshing dish rich in omega-3 as it uses fresh tuna. Try to find large tuna steaks with deep purple flesh."

Of another recipe, Prawns with Thai-spiced broad beans and wild rice, the royal sibling says: "Easy to prepare and full of flavour, this Thai-spiced wild rice is a wonderful accompaniment to tiger prawns. Broad beans are a good source of protein, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals, and brown rice adds fibre. A satisfyingly nutritious dish that makes rice incredibly tasty."
