SWEET TEETH TWO – My exercise guru, Tracy Anderson, recently depressed me by saying one should eat avocados, adding, ‘Treat them like hamburgers, make a whole meal of one.’ Fortunately, she has redeemed herself by saying she never goes anywhere without a bar of chocolate in her handbag.
Here are some sweet treats that are really quite good for you, gluten-free and protein-rich. They’re from Gwyneth Paltrow’s book, It’s All Good.
IT’S ALL GOOD – It’s All Good by Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Turshen
Graham Norton recently gently poked fun at Gwyneth Paltrow for her breakfast recipes in her latest cookery book, It’s All Good. ‘Leftover Quinoa, Two Ways. Yes, I’m the kind of person who always has leftover quinoa.’
I am the sort of person who has a three year old who goes pretend shopping for quinoa. I’ve also been trying to eat a higher protein, low carb diet and so this book (subtitle – Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great) seemed perfect. And frankly, who wouldn’t want to look like Gwyneth, gleaming with health on the front cover.
