Gwyneth Paltrow’s It’s All Good

gwyneth-paltrow-its-all-good-cookbook

When Gwyneth Paltrow’s It’s All Good cookbook was released, although I was initially drawn by the hype, the beautifully presented book and the fact that she introduced the world to Tracy Anderson I was a bit sceptical as it was a celebrity cookbook and I wanted to get the best quality recipes from an expert. The recipes looked really good- especially as I’m a pescatarian and I really liked that the majority of the recipes stuck to Junger’s elimination diet’s principals, so on a bit of a whim (and plenty of browsing) I decide to make the purchase!

This is undoubtably the best cookbook I’ve ever bought- including some of the best recipes I’ve ever tried. Even my unbelievably sceptical husband loves the recipes. Gwyneth has really put a lot of research into this book and pulled inspiration from lots of fantastic chefs/restaurants she’s encountered around the world. The book includes plenty of meal plans and lets you know whether each meal is suitable for vegans/detox friendly/protein packed (for body builders). The food is really good quality, delicious and healthy (so you don’t get that yucky bloated/hyper/ill feeling that you sometimes get with food even if it tastes nice). I now have some of the recipes on a daily basis because they’re so wonderful!

Here are the recipes (including a review of each one) that I’ve tried
