I’m really hoping that this is a fiction piece, because no matter what kind of diet you are on, no child should ever experience the feeling of hunger pains! But if your name is Apple or Moses Martin, unfortunately it’s what your mama orders! The blogs today are all over the story of how Gwyneth Paltrow forcibly makes her children go hungry because of her strict no carbs rule. Here’s a little excerpt from her new cookbook, in which she explains why:
In her new cookbook, called ‘It’s All Good,’ which is released next month, Miss Paltrow devotes an entire chapter to grains but is deeply skeptical about them.
She writes: ‘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. 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’.
There are a lot of other good juicy tidbits from the book, but it’s that excerpt that hit me the most. I’ve never been a fan of parents who force their vegetarian beliefs on their kids, and I’m definitely not a fan of parents who put their kids on some fad diet. What do you guys think? Is Gwyneth really starving her family…. or is this fiction as she’s just being misinterpreted again.
