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

Easter recipes and childlike abandon

Easter is the one time of year that we allow ourselves to follow our senses with childlike abandon, no guilt-ridden strings attached. Chocolate for breakfast? Yes please. And It’s important that we allow ourselves these indulgences.

Your Post Holiday Reset

It’s easy to fall off the bandwagon while on holiday, what with airport meals, piña coladas and not a single home cooked meal. Not to mention our motivation levels seeming to peak at swanning around on inflatable swans. And this down time is COMPLETELY FINE. A few days of indulgence is not going to do any lasting damage, so long as we make sure to regain the balance post-holiday. Here’s how.

Now stocking: Dash Water

Food waste is a subject we care passionately about as a business, so we are thrilled to now be stocking Dash water. “British sparkling water infused with wonky fruit and veg” is the strapline. Crafted in the UK by Alex and Jack, we love that they are fighting food waste in a fun, and sustainable way. The lemon flavour is definitely my favourite.

We take away the stress of planning, shopping and cooking healthy meals.

Simply select the package that is right for you, choose your start date and duration, and look forward to your first delivery of wholesome food.
