Oscar winning actress Alicia Vikander is a Danish beauty. She co-stars with her real life partner Michael Fassbender in the romantic drama The Light Between Oceans.

Vikander may be a wonderful actress, but she’s still like everyone else—that means she has to watch her eating habits.

Alicia Vikander’s Eating Habits

What is Vikander’s daily diet plan? We don’t know for sure, but according to an interview with E! News she does have a love of food. Vikander was born and raised in Sweden, where she began her acting career. Where she comes from, people like to celebrate with a proper meal, and she has a love of cooking.

When she gets the opportunity to do so, Vikander usually prepares meals like moussaka (Greek style lasagna), chili, or stew. She goes on to explain that she likes to prepare these dishes and share them with friends or family—combining her love of food and socializing.

On a visit to New York, Vikander discovered Whole Foods for the first time and she was blown away. She loved the experience, and this speaks to her love of clean eating.

She sticks to food that is nutritious and often cooks her own so she can avoid excess and unnecessary additives and calories. This is good advice for anyone wanting to transition to a healthier lifestyle.

If you want to be as healthy as Vikander, place a focus on fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and healthy fats, as well as lean sources of protein.

Grass-fed beef, chicken, and fish are good options, or if you prefer plant-based proteins, you can choose tempeh or tofu. Non-processed food is known to help with weight loss and to provide more energy than processed food.

By removing the excess chemicals, sodium, preservatives, and colorings that are rampant in processed foods, you prevent them from taking up space in your body and make room for what’s real and natural.

There are also fewer trans-fats and refined carbohydrates (which are empty calories) in whole foods. Avoiding trans-fats is important to maintain heart health, as they increase cholesterol levels. Opt for healthy fats from sources like olive, coconut, flax, and fish oils to increase your omegas.

Vikander’s workout is what keeps her figure slim. She will often do exercises like jogging or going to the gym to complement her healthy lifestyle.

Vikander is also trained in ballet dancing, which she began when she was nine. This may be an advantage not only for her workouts but also for her acting, as she can express herself through various art forms while still getting her sweat on. Her upcoming role in Lara Croft: Tomb Raider is one where she will use this training to her advantage.

Fans are likely to see Vikander looking fitter than ever for this role, which was originally played by Angelina Jolie. The action packed film is set to be released on March 16, 2018, and is set to show us Lara Croft’s origin story.
