Hello 2011! Two Thousand and Heaven, or whatever you want to call it, is here and we ALWAYS embrace a new year with healthy new habits? Don’t we?
Well if the latest celebrity diet The Sweetie Diet – which involves the likes of Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan and Cheryl Cole shovelling Percy Pigs and Jelly Babies down their gobs every half hour – is anything to go on, then we’re in for a world of hurt. Seriously though – I don’t think we need to tell you that it is not going to work out long-term - did you see who’s following this diet?
Thankfully, on a more earthly note we’ve become a bit fascinated with our very own blogger, Doughboy. He is aiming to lose 20 kgs before his wedding in July, in order to not resemble “the love child of Nelly-the-Elephant and the Michelin Man” at the groom end of the aisle.
Problem is he likes eating too much and has no willpower. Something most of us can relate to – so we’ve decided to throw our weight behind Doughboy and give him a healthy shunt into 2011 with some cracking healthy and delicious recipes.
So Doughboy – here’s to losing at least half of that 20kg by July…
Vegan ginger sesame noodles with broccoli
Apricot and bulgar wheat salad
Black beans with basil and cherry tomatoes
Shrimp on a bed of quinoa and peas
Almond flour super-bread
