Do A Gwyneth

Updated on April 13, 2013

Gwyneth Paltrow is an A-list actor with impressive credentials. She has won an Academy Award for Best Actress in Shakespeare In Love. She has done critically acclaimed movies such as Emma, Sliding Doors, and Sylvia. She is happily married to Coldplay's front man Chris Martin and has two kids. She is the goddaughter of Steven Spielberg and has worked with esteemed actors. But most of us do not know that Gwyneth suffered from a disease that forced her to make lifestyle changes. One day while she was preparing lunch for her friends, her body's right side became numb. She had a bad migraine. The doctors diagnosed that she had anemia and was Vitamin B deficient. Her doctors advised her to have a "healing diet". This diet required her not to eat anything inflammatory. She had to cut alcohol, coffee, cheese. Because of that, she lost weight and felt much better.

Her father, Bruce Paltrow died of throat cancer. He lost his salivary glands from too much surgery and radiation. That prompted Gwyneth to eat a macrobiotic diet. She will only eat cruciferous vegetables and fruits. According to Paltrow, we can all take charge of her health. She refrained from eating soy, wheat, coffee, potatoes. She was only allowed to eat non-processed foods.

Paltrow was criticized for being a "bad parent" because according to some tabloid reports, she didn't allow her children to eat carbs. She dismissed the rumor and explained that her son has a bad case of eczema and is allergic to gluten and cow dairy. She is selective with the foods that she eats. She gave an advice to all the parents by saying that we should keep our food clean. Allow your children to make choices. Parents should make healthy alternatives for their children.

Paltrow and Dr. Oz cooked some of her recipes from her newly released cookbook. One recipe is a healthier version of fish nuggets. All you need are 1 cup of vegenaise (a healthier substitute for mayonnaise), seeded mustard, plain gluten free bread crumbs, old bay seasoning, sea salt, skinless fillet or white fish. Bake the fish in a 450 degree oven for 8 minutes. Broil it for 2 minutes.

Another recipe that she shared was Veggie Dumplings. Sautee cabbage, onion. Mix tofu, peas, quinoa. Then add sesame oil. Mash the ingredients, then prepare wanton wrappers. Scoop a small amount of vegetable mixture and place it in the wanton. Wrap the wanton and steam it.

Gwyneth Paltrow may seem to be intimidating, but she is just like the rest of us who has gone through ups and downs. It's good to know that a Hollywood celebrity reaches out to her fans to preach about having a healthy diet.
