The actress is also noted for her being close to nature that many of her lifestyle choices and habits have something to do with being close to nature, literally and symbolically. With this, the actress is fond of organic and fresh foods.
Apparently, she refuses to eat processed and junk foods as she believes it spoils and taints her body. Though it doesn’t mean she’s never eaten any junk or processed foods, because she has and still does occasionally. She just makes sure she only eats a little. Most of the time, Shailene eats fresh fruits and vegetables from farmers’s markets. Some of her favorite fruits are raspberries, strawberries, grapefruits, and pineapples.
