Everything Gwyneth Paltrow Eats in a Day | Food Diaries: Bite Size | Harper's BAZAAR

– I'm Gwyneth Paltrow and thisis everything I eat in a day.

(rhythmic playful music) First thing I do when Iwake up is oil pulling with coconut oil.

So I have raw organic coconut oil.

I put a spoonful in my mouthwhile I'm opening curtains and everything, I'm sortof swishing it around.

It's an Ayurvedic way toremove bacteria from the mouth.

And them I usually have alarge glass or two of water.

And then I sit down with mycomputer at the kitchen table before the kids wake up.

And then I have coffee and somequiet time with my husband.

And we sort of catch up on email and news and then I wake my kids up.

I'm not a big breakfast person.

I'll eat brunch sometimeslate on a weekend.

But, after I take my kids to school, I go straight to the gym.

And I always have a bigthing of water at the gym, and I put two of our Gloop Glows in there for our Vitamin C and for skin.

And I'm obsessed with that stuff.

It's like my morning kind of orange juice.

After that, I go to the office and shower.

And then sometimes I will geta smoothie from somewhere.

So I try to have a smoothiethat has some good fat and some protein and some fiber.

So sometimes I'll have like a cacao and almond buttersmoothie with some spinach and some protein powder.

My favorite supermarketcalled Erewhon is pretty close to the office and they haveamazing smoothies there.

So sometimes I'll havelike a more green smoothie or sometimes if I'm in a rush, I just eat these delicious peanut butter protein barswhich I can't remember the name of them but you have to keepthem in the refrigerator.

I eat them all the time.

I can't remember the name though.

If I'm hung over, whichdoes happen occasionally, although very occasionally at this point, 'cause A, I'm too oldto not hold my liquor, and B, I'm too old to have a hangover, then I try to eat something like you know, an egg sandwich orsomething that will sort of help me through it.

You can always get an IV too, that's a very good hangover drink.

I usually have lunch atabout between 12 and 12:30 at the office.

So I'm usually eating forlunch stuff that you would see on the Goop website likea salad with some protein.

Or sometimes they're testing something really fun for detox.

You know, they're usingjicama for taco shells.

You know, they'll do likea really clean version of a turkey burger withsome kind of great sauce that's very healthy and wrapped in lettuce or something like that.

Usually at about three or four, I'll hit the snack cupboard at the Goop office.

Maybe I'll have some cashews or pretzels or something like that.

But I usually needsomething salty and crunchy in the afternoon and thenI'll usually have a cup of green tea with thatand then that will hold me through till dinner.

And then for dinner, youknow, my kids love Asian food, so we'll have some kind of Asian fish, noodles on the side.

My daughter's vegetarian, so we always have onekind of vegetarian entree.

You know, one pot dinners are great.

On the Goop website, we developed a bunch of one pot dinners sothose are really great for weeknights as well.

I mean, let's see, what's my favorite one? There's one that we'vebeen doing a lot recently which is like chicken ina dutch oven with lots of winter vegetablesunderneath and potatoes.

Really easy kind of but super delicious.

We try to eat early.

It depends on the day.

Sometimes my daughter hassomething kind of later and then my son has waterpolo from seven to 8:30.

So sometimes we're sittingdown right at 6:15.

But I like to eat dinneron the early side.

I always feel like I don't sleep very well if I go to sleep very full.

So I've gotten real geriatric about that like six, 6:30 dinner time.

It feels good.

I've been trying not todrink so much on week nights because it's such aneasy habit to fall into.

It's like you've had a stressfulday and it almost is more about the ritual of it.

But sometimes work is toughand you just need one.

So I usually have a Gibson.

That's kind of my new thingwhich is like a vodka martini but with the cocktail onions.

It's very my father.

Or, I'll have whiskey on the rocks like a Japanese whiskeyon the rocks usually.

So, basically I'm turninginto an old Jewish man.

I've pretty much becomemore of an omnivore.

So there are just a fewthings that I won't eat.

I don't like dill.

I can't stand dill.

I don't like to eat baby mammals, so I stay away from lamb and veal.

I don't eat octopus 'causethey're super smart.

One night I got on this, Iwent down this internet K hole on octopus and how smart they are so I had to stop eating them.

Hm, cheap meal, oh, it's hard to name just one cheap meal.

I love french fries whichis a well known fact.

French fries are sort of my favorite meal, not that they're a meal.

They're technically a side, but I guess I could eat themfor a meal, and I would.

And I love, I do love pasta, I really do.

My favorite french fry inL.

A.

is at this grocery store called, Santa Monica Seafood and they have this little counter where youcan go and just have oysters and french fries or delicioussalmon burger they have.

And you can have a nice dry glass of wine.

And they have my favoritefrench fries in L.

A.

But it definitely smellslike fish in there.

It's a fish market, so it'snot for the fish sensitive.

My dad really got me into food.

He was an extreme foodie.

He loved food so much.

He had a pretty humble background.

And so when he grew upand became successful and was able to go torestaurants and travel for food, it was like to him the mostextreme pleasure and luxury.

And he appreciated it somuch and so I think he really infused my brother and Iwith that incredible love and appreciation forfood and good ingredients and the experience ofeating with people you love.

And that's a day of eats for me.

Thanks for watching.

(quiet upbeat music).
