shailene woodley’s diet plan
Shailene Woodley leads an extremely alternative lifestyle and follows a form of thinking based upon the Wise Woman Tradition, which is a New Age Concept that is believed to empower women. For her own body, Shailene goes foraging for wild food and collecting spring water.
As Shailene is mostly on the move her go- to healthy snack is whatever that is abundantly found locally. She is fond of seaweed and carries along the Three Lily Farm’s Spirulina Gomasio, made with hemp seeds, Incan spirulina, and organic onion granules, which she sprinkles over her food.
Whether it is breakfast, lunch, or dinner our Divergent star likes her food to always be in the cleanest and purest form. She visits the farmer’s market often, to gather her food and buy anything that is in season.
She also is a big believer in fermentation, which, she states, creates an abundance of probiotics in the body. Shailene always has at least one fermented food, like sauerkraut, pickled Korean kimchee, or the tangy drink kefir, with her every meal.
She always has three essential ingredients, Sauerkraut or kimchee, chilli garlic spice, and raw chocolate, the cocoa bean in its purest form, kept in her refrigerator or pantry at all times. While on set, Shailene packs her own breakfast, lunch and dinner.
She also carries along olive oil, seaweed and Spirulna Gomasia wherever she goes. Shailene listens to her body’s wants and eats whatever her body wants her to eat, whenever it wants her to eat. That is one healthy girl whom I’d like to follow. What about you?
