2011 foodie resolutions - good or bad.


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

Superfood smoothie

Apricot and bulgar wheat salad

Black beans with basil and cherry tomatoes

Gluten-free tortillas

Shrimp on a bed of quinoa and peas

Almond flour super-bread

And we need your input too readers. How can we make Food24 healthier in 2011?

Would you sign up for a weekly health recipe newsletter? Have you signed up to our Easy Weekday Meals? Did you enjoy Meat-free Mondays? Checked out our fun Facebook page and seen what other people have to say about what to eat in a heatwave?

So, email us your foodie resolutions, submit your healthy recipes or start a fabulous blog about your good eating habits. We’re all about a fresh start together this year.

Yours in dairy-free, gluten-free, low-fat cheesecake,
