The Audrey Hepburn Diet
The Audrey Hepburn Diet

Since I was a little girl, I have always appreciated the elegance of Audrey Hepburn. This has, over the years, developed into something of a 'girl crush'. So when I recently came across a book called 'What would Audrey do?', being as obsessed about food as I am, I headed straight to the part that describes her diet. I happily discover that Audrey was an advocate of Organic Homemade Produce, a girl after my own heart.

Audrey had a simple diet rich in fruit and vegetables with the occasional plate of pasta. Her treat was a single square of dark baking chocolate in the afternoon.

Based on what I have read about Audrey, I have devised a very simple sample diet that you can follow to 'Eat Like Audrey'.

The Eat like Audrey diet

Breakfast

A boiled egg on wholegrain bread with spinach and asparagus Or Avocado on rye bread with a squeeze of lemon

Snack

Some carrot and celery batons with salt and pepper Or Cherry tomatoes with basil and almonds

Lunch

A palm sized portion of wholegrain pasta with cherry tomatoes, red peppers, courgette and rocket Or Salmon grilled with ginger served with sesame kale, peas and mange tout

Snack

A little raw cacao truffle Or Broad beans and mint

Dinner

Chicken breast and baked sweet potato with broccoli, leeks and kale Or A big hearty salad of artichoke, grated beetroot and carrot, shredded cabbage, cucumber, tomatoes and pumpkin seeds with a lemon and orange dressing
