Here's Exactly What Kim Kardashian Has for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

This is the diet she swears by.

Kim Kardashian, 42, is only getting healthier and better about her diet with age. The reality star and business mogul works hard to get her toned curves—we're talking 5.30am workouts and a mostly plant-based diet. That's not to say she doesn't know when to let loose and have fun. "Honestly, I really take care of myself," she says. "I work out, and I eat as plant-based as possible. I'm not perfect, but it's a lifestyle. I feel really good in my own skin these days, so maybe that comes through. So what exactly does Kardasian enjoy for her breakfast, lunch, and dinner? Here's what she eats in a day.


Chia or Acai for Breakfast


Kardashian enjoys a chia pudding or acai bowl with tea for a typical breakfast. "Chia seeds have many nutritional benefits," says Romi Londre, RDN, CD. "They are high in omega-3 fatty acids and fiber. Chia provides a similar amount of omega-3 fatty acids as ground flaxseed in the form of alpha linolenic acid, or ALA. Chia seeds are an excellent source of fiber, which can improve heart health, reduce cholesterol levels and promote intestinal health. Fiber takes longer to digest and makes you feel satisfied longer, which is how it can help with weight loss and decrease your risk of developing diabetes or heart disease."


Protein and Spinach Salad For Lunch


A typical lunch for Kardashian is fish or chicken with vegetables and spinach salad. "Spinach contains calcium, magnesium and potassium — three important factors in energy metabolism," says Jacqueline Beatty, PhD. "Additionally, spinach is low in sodium, and research has shown that foods high in potassium and low in sodium play a role in significantly reducing blood pressure. This nutrient-dense leafy green can help you lose weight and improve the quality of your health."


Vegan Tacos, Fish, or Eggplant Parmesan for Dinner

Kardashian enjoys tacos made with plant-based meat alternatives for dinner, or vegan eggplant parmesan. She also enjoys grilled fish and vegetables. "We all know that fish is high in protein and low in fat," say the experts at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. "But it's also loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, which help maintain heart health by lowering blood pressure. Omegas 3's also are known to be beneficial to healthy brain function and development. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends eating two servings of fish per week as part of a heart-healthy diet."


Green Beans and Guacamole For a Snack


Kardashian likes to snack on tempura green beans or guacamole, which explains her beautiful complexion—one study shows avocado has a beneficial impact on skin health. "What we have learned from this study is that avocado is a very unique fruit," says Zhaoping Li, MD, chief of the division of clinical nutrition at UCLA. "It has a lot of fibers, monounsaturated fatty acids and phytonutrients and it has an impact on many, if not all, of the organ systems inside of our body. If you can swap out your high-fat processed foods like sausages with avocado, you will be doing yourself a favor. Avocados are high in fat, but it's good fat. This counters the public opinion that all fats are bad."


Häagen-Dazs For a Rare Treat

Kardashian has a notorious sweet tooth, but made a point of cutting back on sugar for the sake of her health. "I don't really eat sugar the way that I used to. It doesn't really do it for me," she says. "I've kind of been trained to just eat a lot healthier than I used to. I used to just eat anything and everything and I loved it. And so I really do control that now. I don't want to ruin it by just stuffing my face." Her one sweet treat? "I love Häagen-Dazs ice cream. That's like my one go-to."
