GAME OF THRONES ‘MISSANDEI’ REVEALS HOW SHE GETS HER PROTEIN ON A VEGAN DIET
Livekindly revealed that British actor Nathalie Emmanuel — who plays Missandei on the hit HBO show “Game of Thrones” — is a proud vegan.
The actor and budding athlete — she has a hardcore fitness regime, practicing yoga, distance swimming, boxing, and running — adopted a plant-based diet in 2013.
Emmanuel proves that you don’t need animal products to sustain a grueling workout. She claims that her favorite post-workout meals are simply “quinoa, greens, veggies, and beans, simple and packed with natural proteins.”
The fitness enthusiast also enjoys a protein shake. She said in 2017, “I’ll make something that’s packed with calories. I’ll put a banana in it, a bit of almond milk or coconut water, spinach. I also like a bit of matcha powder in there – all of that fun stuff! Add a bit of vegan protein powder and that would be my shake.”
But she’s not all salads and pea green soups. The star’s Instagram account reveals she’s also got a sweet tooth and enjoys indulgent treats like cookie dough vegan milkshakes and cupcakes.
