The title of Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest cookbook is “It’s All Good,” which is ironic, because it restricts a great many foods. It should be titled “Only a Few Things are Good.”
Gwyneth published a cookbook in 2011 called “My Father’s Daughter” that was super fancy, but included a great deal of comfort food.
According to the description for “It’s All Good,” Gwyneth found herself worn out from “a lapse of overindulgence” and a hectic schedule and found a doctor who put her on a very restrictive “elimination diet.”
Gwwyneth said this helped her lose weight, have more energy, and look good; so she put together some recipes with Julia Turshen to help others follow this restrictive yet according to Paltrow, restorative, diet.
Here’s a list of things Gwyneth’s diet eliminates:
- Deep Water Fish
- Processed foods
Best guess is that the deep water fish (like tuna) is restricted because they contain high levels of mercury.
Press release via Amazon:
Gwyneth Paltrow, Academy-Award winning actress and bestselling cookbook author, returns with recipes for the foods she eats when she wants to lose weight, look good, and feel more energetic.
Last spring, after a particularly grueling schedule and lapse of overindulgence, Gwyneth Paltrow was feeling fatigued and faint. A visit to her doctor revealed that she was anemic, vitamin D deficient, and that her stress levels were sky high. He prescribed an elimination diet to clear out her system and help her body heal. But this meant no coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, no shellfish, no deep-water fish, no wheat, no meat, no soy, nothing processed at all!
An avid foodie, Paltrow was concerned that so many restrictions would make mealtime boring, so, together with Julia Turshen, she compiled a collection of 185 delicious, easy recipes that followed her doctor’s guidelines. And it worked! After changing her diet, Paltrow healed totally, felt more energetic and looked great. Now, in IT’S ALL GOOD, she shares the go-to dishes that have become the baseline for the restorative diet she turns to whenever she feels she needs it. Recipes include: Huevos Rancheros, Hummus Tartine with Scallion-Mint Pesto, Salmon Burgers with Pickled Ginger, even Power Brownies, Banana “Ice Cream,” and more!
