Baby Food Diet Recipes

Baby Food Diet Recipes

We hear a hot diet trend for 2011 is the Baby Food Diet. The idea is simple: Substitute two meals a day with baby food purees and you'll have a slim, baby-sized waistline. Hollywood types most likely have their people mix up homemade concoctions of the mush to ensure organic mixes. Good luck with your one or two day attempt at it because hey, baby food was meant for babies--not adults! The cookies and crackers will be in the same place you left them the other day, feel free to dig them out once the hunger kicks in.

Or if you really want to try to make some baby food meals, find a few recipes after the jump.
