Beyonce on tour eating and dancing

Beyonce continues her tour

Beyonce is now in Australia then she moves to America and finishes this leg of her tour on the 22nd December.  How will she ever get her Christmas shopping done!  Then she resumes in April in Europe hitting Manchester, London and BRATISLAVA to name but a few destinations.

Apparently when she is on tour she sticks to strict diet regime so that she can shake her booty on stage like she likes to do!   However, with all the shaking and dancing she does on the stage she would need a good energy producing diet so that she dance and sing all night long.
Beyonce reportedly has said  “I want to have some ice cream or Krispy Kreme doughnuts! There’s too much good food out there,”  She went on to say “After the tour, I feel like I’ve earned the right to eat what I want and once the tour comes to an end – in Brooklyn in December – she plans to make up for lost time. I feel like I’ve earned the right to eat what I want.”
Here are some recipes for the indulgent times and a recent report in the Daily Mail details that Costa Coffee’s ‘fruit cooler’ was the most sugary with 97.1g per portion and by contrast, glazed Krispy Kreme doughnuts contain just 7g of sugar.  I will have two then!
