RHOBH star confirms she’s back to eating meat
Denise Richards opened up to Women’s Health about her diet. She told the magazine that she’s back to eating meat and fish and it feels so “good.” While Denise was a vegetarian for a long time, she missed out on some of her favorite foods. Her trip back to her hometown last November inspired her to quit vegetarianism.
“I would say 90 percent of my diet is gluten-free and I definitely do notice the difference,” the Bravo personality revealed. “I grew up in the Midwest and we ate meat, potatoes, and pasta, so I enjoy all of that.”
During that time, Denise reintroduced meat back to her diet after several years of vegetarianism. It turns out that lunch is the most important meal of the day. Denise makes sure to pack on the protein during that time, as per Us Weekly.
“Sometimes I don’t get to eat lunch when I’m working,” she explained. “If I do, I like to have a big salad and some protein, like grilled salmon or chicken. I was a vegetarian for years and one day not that long ago I started eating a little more like protein and it actually felt good. I felt like I was full in a healthy way.”
The Wild Things actress also loves to add “fresh shaved Parmesan and tons of vegetables” to her salad.Other times, she’ll make “steamed potatoes” to make herself even more “full.” While Denise still loves to eat fresh fruit and vegetables, she’ll save the meat or poultry for dinnertime.
Denise Richards talks about dinner with her family
The RHOBH star loves to cook dinner for her and her husband, Aaron Phypers, and their 9-year-old daughter Eloise. She also shares daughters Sam, 16, and Lola, 15, with ex-husband Charlie Sheen. Denise admits there are times when she’ll have roasted chicken and vegetables. Or, she’ll make a “big salad, steamed asparagus, or sautéed Brussel sprouts, which are hit with the kids.”
Of course, the family loves to eat steak and seafood. “I actually have had some shipped from New York for us,” Denise said. “I love salmon and halibut too.” While she’s lived gluten-free for years, she’s having a hard time finding a replacement for pasta.
“I love pasta and it is definitely hard finding a gluten-free one that tastes like real pasta and not gross,” she said.
Earlier this month, Denise took a trip to the grocery store. On Instagram, she shared a photo of Aaron pushing a grocery cart filled with household goods and snacks. It included cereal, cheese, Kettle potato chips, pretzel rod rods, and other goodies.
