Anushka Sharma's confident and bold avatar as a mommy-to be has won many hearts and so is her post pregnancy fitness routine. Anushka Sharma has been very dilgent with her yoga sessions. In fact, a lot of credit for her fabulously toned physique goes to her good food choices. She eats frequently to keep her metabolism up but makes sure that her meals are healthy and balanced. You may have not known this but Anushka Sharma is also a foodie at heart. Here are some of the things that she enjoys to eat.

Anushka is a "NO" to junk food person. She strongly feels your skin is a mirror of what you are eating as she quotes "Whatever you eat, reflects on your skin" so putting junk food in her body is the last thing she will do. So, if you eat junk food it will show on your body, thus making you look dull and overweight. She keeps her diet simple:

• Breakfast - A glass of fresh fruit juice with two egg whites. • Midday snack- Coconut Water or lime with cheese toast • Lunch- Anushka love Homemade dal with some veggies, two chapattis and some salad. She always carries lunch from home. • Evening snack- She prefers to munching on protein bars or seasonal fruits.

• Dinner - A glass of milk before going off to bed. Anushka always carry a packet of healthy snacks or a box of nuts with me at all times. Often, she munch on wheat crackers and wheat thins, which come in small and convenient-sized packets to slip into the handbag.

The 'power couple' recently took to Instagram to share an adorable photo, which featured them doing "hands-down" (leg up) the most difficult one. As yoga is a big part of Anushka's life, her doctor recommended that she can do all such asanas that she was doing before she was pregnant (after a certain stage) barring twists & extreme forward bends, but of course with the appropriate and required support. For the Shirshasana, which she has been doing for many years, she ensured that she used the wall for support and also her very able husband supporting her better half balance, to be extra safe. The asana was also done under the supervision of her yoga teacher Eefa Shrof @eefa_shrof who was virtually with her through her session. Anushka as a mommy-to be was so glad that she could continue her practice through her pregnancy.
