Bhumika Chawla stays in good shape by following a balanced diet. In an interview, she got candid about her diet plan. “I begin my day with a cup of tea or fresh fruits like papaya, apples and banana,” said the actress. “I leave my house at six in the morning for my shoot so I eat at the location itself. My assistant makes breakfast for me. If I am in a mood for continental food I have a breakfast comprising eggs, cornflakes, porridge, fruits and hot milk with honey.”
She also prefers a plant-based diet. “I prefer to have a vegetarian lunch. Sabzi, dal and roti. I must have salad with my lunch and I must end my meal with a bowl of curds,” she shared. For dinner, she chooses to have a lighter meal, usually opting some soup and steamed vegetables. When she’s not working, she prefers to have home-cooked meals.
