What Healthy Treats Did Planet Celeb Eat And Drink In 2013?
1. Nicole Richie likes her (w)raps gluten-free
Back in September, designer and former best-pal to Paris Hilton – Nicole Richie, teamed up with rising rap star, Ebone Hoodrich to make (probably) the world’s first gluten free rap.
Nicole spat some lyrics about ‘Chillin’ in her crib ‘making gluten-free spaghetti’ and her ‘new ‘do”. Nicole has previously talked about her gluten-free lifestyle, priding herself on being conscious of what she feeds herself and her family and owing her increased energy levels to her diet.
Why not take a leaf out of Nicole’s book and try a delicious, healthy and extremely easy gluten-free meal. You can even enjoy a rich, comforting lasagna – Amy’s Kitchen Gluten Free Vegetable Lasagne is made with natural rice pasta, layered with tender spinach, courgettes, crisp carrots, delicious tomato sauce and cheeses – the perfect wintery, gluten free treat. Amy’s Kitchen Gluten Free Vegetable Lasagne is currently available from independent health food stores and Asda stores nationwide from 13th May, RRP £2.99.
2. Simon Cowell’s Ginger Baby
When Simon Cowell revealed he and girlfriend Lauren Silverman are expecting a baby, rumours about the couple’s sex life were rife. One thing he did confirm is that his obsession with drinking ginger tea is the reason he’s now a dad-to-be.
When promoting the new series of The X Factor USA, Simon was raving about the health benefits of his favourite drink, he said, ‘I drink ginger tea all day, which is amazing’.
He may be Mr Nasty on the judging panel but he clearly knows what’s good for him, take a leaf out of Simon’s book and harness the incredible natural potential of ginger with Pukka’s Three Ginger tea: available from Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Ocado, RRP £2.29.
3. Sienna’s fashion forward Miso treat
London Fashion Week 2013 was full of high drama, fabulous frocks and ‘frow’ gossip. Not least about Sienna Miller and Harry Styles cosying up at the Burberry show in Hyde Park. Sienna also revealed her favourite London Fashion Week snack – Clearspring’s organic, instant Miso Soup on the Go. With only 29 calories, Miso on the Go takes just 30 seconds to make and is absolutely delicious.
