What do you get when you cross a beetroot, a carrot and some ginger? A BEETROTINGER! Sorry that’s quite bad but when I saw this month’s in the bag challenge I wasn’t quite sure what to make of beetroot, carrot and celery. Maybe some sort of bloody maryesque cocktail but that defeats the purpose of doing a detox…After lots of hum and ar-ring. I decided to forget the celery and replace it with some ginger which is very good for detox aswell. And to be quite honest a cake is not very detox at all. So I suggest eating some celery to balance it out Celery is actually one of the few negative calorie foods which means that it takes the body more energy to digest than what the body consumes.

Happy New Year everyone! Ok, I know I’m “fashionably late”. But getting into the swing of things after the holiday period (or better said after eating enough food to feed the Walton family) is a bit difficult. I’m already suffering from gym aches and pains. So I thought I’ld start 2008 with on a slightly lighter note. If you’re watching your figure, like me at the moment, you can omit the chocolate. Otherwise ideally I would serve this (slightly warmed) with a generous helping of vanilla or chocolate ice cream.
