Angelina Jolie has reportedly been snacking on a diet of ‘ancient grains’, forming her strict eating regime around handfuls of nuts and seeds to keep her slender body in shape.
The Tourist star claims a mixture of quinoa, millet, chia seeds, spelt and buckwheat have huge health benefits for both her well being and figure, and according to one source, the stunning mother-of-six can’t get enough of the earthy morsels.
”Angie’s always been a fan of healthy seeds and grains, but lately she’s taken it to a whole new level,” a source told National Enquirer magazine.
“She’s into eating products made from ancient grains and raves about their health benefits. She claims they provide her with nutrients she can’t find anywhere else, plus shinier skin.”
Now we all know oily nuts and natural seeds are healthy fuel for the body, but the 38-year-old’s lean shape has come under scrutiny in the past after it was rumoured she was surviving on as little as 600 calories a day.
”Angelina has been known to start her day with little more than a spoonful of coconut oil and a handful of cereal,” a source revealed at the time.
As long as the Hollywood siren is mixing these natural foods with some tasty meat and two veg thrown in for good measure, we’ll be taking her latest slimming trick and incorporating a sprinkling of archaic seeds into our diet too.
Here’s to glossy thick hair and dewy A-list skin all round.
