Healthy recipes are not hard to find, the problem is finding the ones that are easy to prepare at home. Now there is a website devoted to easy, clean recipes, and better yet, it’s the personal creation of A-Lister, Gwyneth Paltrow.
The website is www.goop.com. The source of these recipes, to many a reader’s surprise, is Gwyneth Paltrow. She is a real food aficionado from the get-go. Her father was a foodie before foodies were cool.
In her cookbook, My Father’s Daughter, the actress turned health guru, describes the relationship she had with her father and how much of it stemmed from the enjoyment of bringing good food to those loved ones.
Goop is an extension of that book. The recipes run from the ordinary in her “My Ivy Chopped Salad Reinterpreted” to slightly adventurous in “Clean Black Cod with Miso.” Gwyneth is the curator of the website and delivers a wealth of easy, healthy recipes.
Gwyneth is a big proponent of keeping the digestive tract clean. This is evident by her review of the “goop cleanse.” This cleanse combines a series of products officially formulated by Dr. Alejandro Junger that will remove the, well, goop and leave you feeling refreshed and energized.
Does it actually work? According to the superstar, of course it does. In preparation for this cleanse she advises on eating zero-processed, light foods, high in nutrients, lean protein, and fiber.
The website is an ideal source for DIY recipes of delicious salads. Paltrow’s “Clean beet Carpaccio with marinated bean salad” combines sweet and sour flavors created by the red beets and crisp green beans. Salads like these result in more than a side dish. They become a meal in and of themselves.
Light vegetarian meals abound on the site. “Smoked paprika hummus” offers a yummy twist of the same old hummus dish. Utilizing garlic, paprika, and cayenne pepper gives the hummus a nice kick of spice that keeps the diner interested.
If you are trying to get on the road of healthy eating, but need user-friendly recipes to kick start the process, consider visiting goop. You never know, you might just find what you need.
