NICOLE KIDMAN’S DIET
For Nicole, everything’s about balance. She says she doesn’t have any tricks or secrets when it comes to what she eats. Instead, Nicole eats everything in moderation.
Typically, she says she follows an 80-20 diet. This means that she tries to make most of her diet — about 80 percent of it — full of healthy food, including fresh fruits and veggies, lean protein, and whole grains. The rest of her diet includes less healthy foods, like fried foods, processed foods, sugar, and so on. One of her favourite indulgent meals is pizza with truffles. 🙂
Nicole admits that sometimes she eats more treats than she should, and sometimes she ends up following a 70-30 routine instead of an 80-20 diet. When she’s traveling, it’s especially hard to find healthy food to eat. But she doesn’t let this make her feel guilty. She says she wants to enjoy life, and being overly strict can distract her from focusing on what matters.
To her, eating well gives her the energy to support her family, career, and interests. Her diet shouldn’t limit her.
WHAT NICOLE EATS IN A DAY
Nicole loves food, and she enjoys eating most of it (except ham, which is her least favourite food!). However, she’s not the best cook in the kitchen. In fact, she says that, whenever she cooks chicken, it turns out dry. She would rather eat food than prepare it.
Nicole grew up in Australia, and some of her favourite foods are from the country. She especially loves barbeque and seafood platters that include oysters, tiger prawns, lobster, and mud crab. In addition to this, Nicole loves a fresh piece of warm bread.
Here are some of Nicole’s go-to daily meals:
Nicole and her husband, Keith Urban, own a farm in Australia. When she’s staying there, she loves taking advantage of the fresh dairy, fruits, and eggs.
For breakfast, she might enjoy homemade jam from her orchard on a fresh slice with an egg.
If Nicole wants a beverage with her breakfast, she enjoys coffee. Her go to Starbucks order is a cappuccino with extra foam. When she wants to indulge her sweet tooth, she’ll add chocolate sprinkles.
Nicole loves Australia’s fresh fruits and vegetables. One of her go-to meals is a salad that takes advantage of the delicious produce Australia offers. This roasted-root vegetable salad with persimmons looks both delicious and healthy. It includes:
- Olive oil, white wine, and white vinegar
- Fuyu persimmons
- Pomegranate seeds
- Seasoning, including thyme and black pepper
One of her favourite dinner meals with seafood is a variation of the Italian dish spaghetti alle vongole, or pasta with clams. She eats it with green beans to add some veggies. If you want, you can use whole wheat pasta to avoid eating processed grains.
Nicole doesn’t drink a lot of alcohol, and she isn’t particularly fond of cocktails. However, she will drink champagne with peaches for special occasions.
