Gwyneth Paltrow Debuts New Family Cookbook

Mom-of-two Gwyneth Paltrow is set to debut her new cookbook, It’s All Good, on April 2 in which she offers healthy recipes for the whole family.

In the book, the 40-year-old Oscar-winner opens up about the conscientious diet that her family — rockstar hubby Chris Martin and their two children, 8-year-old daughter Apple and 6-year-old son Moses — enjoys, incuding dishes that are both gluten-free and low-carb.

“Every single nutritionist, doctor and health-conscious person I have ever come across…seems to concur that [gluten] is tough on the system and many of us are at best intolerant of it and at worst allergic to it,” she writes in a cookbook section devoted to grains.

“Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice, we’re left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs,” Gwyneth adds.

Gwyneth’s first cookbook, My Father’s Daughter, was a best seller, and she reportedly decided to write It’s All Good after learning last spring that she was both anemic and had a vitamin D deficiency.

The book’s 185 recipes are inspired by her new doctor-prescribed diet of cutting out dairy, eggs, soy, sugar, coffee, alcohol, shellfish, wheat, meat and processed food, among other ingredients.

The actress provides healthier takes on huevos rancheros, hummus tartine with scallion-mint pesto, salmon burgers with pickled ginger and more.

    Now that is the worst idea ever… Gwyneth Paltrow writes a cookbook. It will turn out to be a raging success as quick weight loss book.

  • Ano

    Interesting looking girl.

  • cynical

    Cutting out meat when anemic/iron deficient?? That makes sense.

  • Elizabeth

    Her kids are going to grow up not doing drugs and drinking but chowing down cheeseburgers and donuts on the sly.

  • Sheila

    Her daughter is not the cutest looking child. Not at all!

    I’m trying to figure out what kind of doctors she’s talking to because none of my dozens of biology, chemistry, or medical professors ever mentioned that gluten was terrible for you in their classes. The only people that they said needed to cut it from their diets completely were those with celiac disease or other gluten-specific allergies. Just another health food fad that celebrities endorse, but most doctors & people in the science fields are puzzled by.

      Good point.. and when tested, a very small percentage of people have an actual allergy or intolerance.

  • ffff

    no wonder she’s damn skinny, she barely eats anything!

    The book should have been titled, ‘The Cookbook Guide to Anorexia’.

    Carbohydrates, including those that contain gluten, have been a part of the human diet for thousands of years. Yet somehow, her family has developed some sort of pyschosomatic reaction and therefore thinks the entire world will benefit from her wisdom . Stop demonizing perfectly normal and healthy food with psuedo-science.

    I feel so sorry for her kids. I’d never be proud of my children going hungry!!!! Kids need a healthy diet for their brains to develop correctly and to have enough energy to play and learn.

    Wow! The comments above are so cruel. I have the first cookbook and I think it’s great – really healthy food, simple to make and delicious. I’d be really excited about the next book. I’m sure there are some great ideas in there so I would give it a chance. Who knows, the judgy people above might be inspired too.

    • Daniella

      It’s not being judgy if her statements go against everything in college level science textbooks or medical guides. She’s trying to pass off facts that are not true according practically every scientist, medical doctor, or licensed nutritionist/dietitian out there. Listen to medical professionals, not random celebrities who haven’t even taken a freshman biology or organic chemistry class. And those of us in the science fields can call out people who try to pass off crazy diets & cleanses like Gwyneth Paltrow’s as being healthy & safe when they are anything but. That’s not judgy, that’s common sense.
