Gwyneth Paltrow’s new book “It’s All Good” is a cookbook that details the strict diet she has her family on. She even admits in the book that the diet is so strict that it leaves her family with hunger pangs.
In her cookbook, Paltrow writes about the foods she doesn’t allow her two children, Apple and Moses Martin to eat.
Gwyneth wrote that “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.”
Paltrow even admitted that for her kids the diet she has them on isn’t the most satisfying. “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.”
She went on to describe a medical scare she experienced that was the catalyst for changed to an extremely limited diet. “One sunny afternoon in London, in the spring of 2011, I thought, without sounding overly dramatic, that I was going to die.”
I had just served lunch in the garden at home. I had a vague feeling that I was going to faint, and I wasn’t forming thoughts correctly.”
“I got a searing pain in my head. I couldn’t speak, and I felt as if I couldn’t breathe. I thought I was having a stroke.”
Her doctor diagnosed her as having a migraine and a panic attack. The doctor put her on a diet for three weeks in order to “clear out her system, heal her gut and revive her body.” In her cookbook, she shares the recipes of the food she had to eat.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s new cookbook “It’s All Good” will be available in bookstores on April 2.
