I have been obsessed with fruit since I was a tiny tot. Since adopting a high-percentage raw food diet, that obsession has grown by leaps and bounds. Blueberries, kiwis, oranges, apples, jackfruit, grapefruit, bananas, grapes, guava, mango, pomegranate, pineapples, peaches, pears, PHEW, I would Best of Tumblr them all.
March’s Vogue Spain brought in Camilla Åkrans to shoot the effortlessly bananas Malgosia Bela. Naturally, “El Arte de la Seduccion” had little to no chance of going bad. Throw McQueen, Sander, and friends on top of it all and we have the photoshoot equivalent of a red velvet cupcake. View Post
I was not ranting and raving after Prada’s Spring/Summer 2011 show to say the least. In fact, it felt like quite a big blip on an otherwise immaculate Fashion Week. Somehow, Panos Yiapanis has convinced me to rethink my stance on the bananas* collection with some genius styling in V Magazine‘s issue #69. A brunette Natasha Poly looks designer-perfect in “Natasha is the New Brunette Who Loves Her New Prints” (…and breathe…), shot by Willy Vanderperre.
* In every sense of the word. View Post
Holy bologna. “Family Circus” in W‘s December issue is my fairy tale dream come to life. Any time you ask Paolo Roversi to do his thing you can expect something incredible. The standard of this collaboration with stylist Alex White, though? Bananas. Go ahead, swoon over the ultra beauty of Lindsey Wixson, Arizona Muse, Anais Pouliot, and Britt Maren. View Post
I have previously discussed my love of Nosh Detox, a 3-day (or longer, if you choose) program that was nourishing, delicious, and cleansing. In reality though, most people find it hard to live on such a restricted eating plan. Where do the rest of the foodies-in-need turn? As far as the UK is concerned, I would suggest Go Lower or The Pure Package.
While both programmes are designed with constant integration into your existing lifestyle, they both have intricate and positive differences:
Go Lower is a scheme that can guarantee weight loss results based simply on it’s science. While there is definite caloric restriction, anyone looking to drop some pounds – stones, even – can do so at a very quick rate and with customised, flawless one-to-one nutritionist support. The food is very meat-heavy, as it is the quickest way to get the body into ketosis (aka the natural process that makes your body kick fat to the curb), though there are also some fantastic soups, snacks, and even chocolate. The only negative experience I had while dining on Go Lower was a serious craving for fruit. I am renowned as a complete fruit and vegetable addict, and just a week without eating something super-fresh drove me absolutely bananas. Literally, I bought a ton of bananas.
With The Pure Package, your breakfast will be a variety of either muesli with yoghurt and fruit, or a savoury breakfasts. Lunches are generally salads – good and substantial – and designed to be eaten cold (though some can be heated). Diner is designed to be heated either in the microwave or conventional oven, but your daily menu delivery gives you foolproof directions and the benefits behind the ingredients. With uber-healthy snacks, they also provide many programmes for different lifestyles and goals; detoxes to pregnancy to training support.
Personally, I would choose The Pure Package as my food delivery service because I am a sucker for the freshness and variety of ingredients, and don’t feel the need to drop weight. That said, anyone looking to lose weight from a delivery service needs to chose Go Lower. The results are absolutely incredible, and that extra support offered through your nutritionist and online forums are extremely valuable for those who find it hard to get results on your own. Both absolutely fantastic regimes.
