Tummies are rumbling at Gwyneth Paltrow's London home! In her new cookbook It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great, the 40-year-old star urges readers and their families to adopt a low-carb, gluten-free diet.
The actress and self-help guru shares kids Apple, 8, and Moses, 6 with husband, Coldplay rocker Chris Martin. And whether the kids like it or not, the Oscar winner says gluten and carbs should be avoided. "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," writes Paltrow in the tome, as excerpted by the Daily Mail.
Such a diet is not always easy for Paltrow, her rocker beau or their little ones, she admits. "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," concedes the Proof actress.
It's All Good features 185 recipes -- all of them eschewing dairy, eggs, soy, sugar, coffee, alcohol, shellfish, wheat, meat and processed food -- offer healthier takes on huevos rancheros, hummus tartine with scallion-mint pesto, salmon burgers with pickled ginger and more.
