The latest craze to hit Hollywood is noshing on baby food to keep calories low, portions in control and ingredients pure. I must admit, this trend sounds a bit bizarre at first, but then again, we are talking about Hollywood where boundaries are known to be pushed when it comes to keeping the pounds off. Aside from dining on spoonfuls of mashed peas and blueberry delight as a way to stay lean, baby food is great to add to recipes that require pureed or mashed food (think ginger squash muffins or sweet potato scones). Pureed vegetables and fruits are also great substitutes for fats and sweeteners in many recipes, plus they deliver vitamins and fiber, too. It may cost a bit more to grab a few jars of baby food, but you save on time. When you’re clock-pressed, this kitchen secret is a stand by. Learn more about the Baby Food Diet here.
