  • Roasted cauliflower and chickpeas with mustard and parsley

    • wester on April 30, 2019

      I thought I was going to love this. as I love the ingredients and the other reviews were so positive. However, I found it nice but not spectacular. I did grow on me during the meal, so I might repeat. Then again, I might not.

    • rglo820 on June 23, 2017

      This is a staple in our house - it is way more than the sum of its parts. We often substitute several handfuls of arugula for the parsley for a more salad-y feel, but it's great both ways.

    • Rinshin on January 29, 2019

      Looking for a simple nutritious side to go with smoked pork ribs, this caught my eyes and curiosity. How good can cauliflower pieces and garbanzo beans baked for 40 min and dressed with mustard based dressing be? It is deceivingly good esp the nutty garbanzo beans. Added sliced onions too. Photo added. Will be repeating this one.

    • dedosmagicos on February 29, 2016

      so delicious, so addictive!!

    • ChelseaP on August 05, 2021

      This is also a staple side dish in our house. It's surprising how good it is and any leftovers keep well for lunch the next day.

  • Creamy avocado and cacao smoothie

    • TrishaCP on July 10, 2020

      I used the cacao powder, and it was ok but not my favorite. The consistency was somehow off, though definitely creamy from the avocado. It would be better with 1/2 cup of frozen fruit- berries or mango or cherries would be nice.

    • Astrid5555 on May 30, 2014

      Very good, substituted strawberries for cocoa to make it more to my liking.

  • Susie's agua frescas (watermelon and mint)

    • Astrid5555 on July 27, 2014

      Delicious, however will try with other sweetener (agave?) next time because the honey taste was too strong for me.

  • Lamb tagine with squash and chickpeas

    • Astrid5555 on November 02, 2014

      Pure comfort food for a cold fall/winter day. Loved the addition of chickpeas and red kuri squash to a hearty lamb stew. Marinating the meat in a simple yet delicious marinade overnight also contributed to this excellent flavor combination. Served over Kamut couscous to absorb the lovely sauce. Will definitely make again!!

  • Perfect herbed grilled chicken

    • Astrid5555 on July 01, 2013

      Two thumbs up from the whole (!) family, which does not happen too often. A very simple marinade of lots of herbs, garlic, lemon and olive oil.

    • Melanie on October 04, 2014

      Delicious, I was happy with how flavoursome this was. I made the marinade after work, and left the first night of chicken in to marinate for about half an hour before cooking dinner, while the chicken for the second night went into the fridge to rest a bit longer.

  • Chicken burgers, Thai style

    • rglo820 on June 23, 2017

      I can't count how many times we've made these - they are really delicious. If I am feeling lazy I just blitz all the flavorings in the food processor, to no ill effect. I've also doubled the recipe to make six oblong patties for bahn mi-style sandwiches, which were fantastic. I especially love them with sesame snap peas and blistered shisito peppers, but any Asian-inflected side works well.

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      Easy weeknight dinner paired with the Korean Slaw. Really great flavour, much better than what I was expecting - mince everything small to make sure there is lots of flavour. I used a whole small red chilli and substituted spring onions for the shallots.

    • Rinshin on June 27, 2017

      I made this exactly as written. The patties are quite loose when uncooked and requires a careful handling on the grill until more set. I brushed each side with oil to make sure they did not stick. The flavor is excellent and so simple to make. These are good without any sauce but I served these with some Thai chili sauce and soy sauce/lime juice. The soy sauce/lime juice went better with these. A definite repeat.

  • Grilled striped bass with cucumber and clementine salsa

    • rglo820 on June 23, 2017

      This salsa was absolutely delicious and would work well with a wide variety of fish as well as grilled chicken, or even just as a dip with tortilla chips. I used salmon rather than bass and it was a great combination. The leftover salsa and flaked fish tossed with quinoa made a fabulous lunch the next day.

  • Roasted eggplant with tahini dressing, date molasses and mint

    • Melanie on October 04, 2014

      After roasting the eggplant there isn't really much inner flesh left, but I enjoyed the flavours of the eggplant when mixed with date molasses and mint. I skipped the tahini yoghurt.

  • A plain roasted sweet potato

    • Melanie on January 11, 2014

      Not exactly a recipe however the timing and instructions worked well. I mashed five spice powder in as suggested which was a success.

  • Korean slaw

    • Melanie on March 07, 2014

      Served this paired with the chicken burgers - very easy to put together and tasted super fresh. Held up okay the second night however not as crunchy. I massaged the slaw to help mix in the flavours.

  • White beans, French style

    • Melanie on October 04, 2014

      Easy weeknight side dish paired with the herbed grilled chicken. The addition of red wine vinegar at the end made it shine.

  • Lee's chopped Vietnamese salad

    • Melanie on October 05, 2015

      I used honey and agree with mytai's comment - need to watch the salt in this one. I reduced the fish sauce slightly in the dressing. We loved this salad and mixed through thinly sliced steak to make it a complete meal. Used more bok choy, skipped the cabbage, and substituted baby spinach for watercress. Mixed dressing in just before serving. We loved this dish, great dish for a hot night.

    • mytai on May 30, 2013

      This was very tasty - but the dressing is a bit salty, so go easy at first. (I used xylitol instead of honey - honey might cut the salt better). Goes incredibly well with the chicken in the Korean tacos recipe. Both held up really well as leftovers, and I thought tasted even better the next day.

    • MmeFleiss on May 14, 2021

      The dressing worked great cutting down the fish sauce in half and skipping the salt.

  • Beet greens soup

    • Melanie on January 11, 2014

      Quick, easy and filling soup. Tastes great hot or cold - lasts maybe 2 days in fridge. Good colour. I didn't strain as I liked the texture. I preferred fresh pepper to oil on top when serving.

  • Stir-fried brown rice with nori and black sesame

    • Melanie on January 11, 2014

      Quick stir fry using leftover brown rice. I didn't add the scallions or salt. First time I made this I added bean sprouts and served on a bed of baby spinach. Second time I served on the spinach but also topped the rice with a fried egg. Delicious and good mix of simple flavours.

  • Instant berry and coconut ice pops

    • Melanie on January 11, 2014

      I used frozen raspberries and mixed everything up with an immersion blender - quick and easy. Mixture tasted good before and after the freezer.

  • Go-to black beans

    • Melanie on May 18, 2014

      This technique didn't add a huge amount of flavour (not that I thought it would - garlic, coriander, salt and olive oil) but was still worth doing. Paired with a few other toppings for tacos.

  • Bread and butter pickles

    • Melanie on January 11, 2014

      I'll make these again - very easy to make. I used carrots to replace half of the cucumbers which worked well. I also skipped the celery seed and used regular honey.

    • swegener on January 12, 2015

      These turned out delicious and were quite easy--I didn't have enough honey, so I subbed brown sugar. Will make again! One thing to note, the amount of cucumbers it called for filled a quart not a pint, and I needed to double the amount of brine. I actually made more like a quart and a cup, but needed to add more brine to cover the last of the pickles. I also didn't use all the onion called for, because it wouldn't have fit.

  • Beet, fennel and apple soup

    • evromans on October 13, 2013

      Made this soup with pre-packages beets and also added the green stalks of the fennel (seemed a waste to throw them onto the compost heap), so it didn't turn out as pink as it should. However: very tasty. The sweetness of the beets and apple and the fennel complement each other very well. Use less of the stock if you want a thicker soup (I used 4 instead of 6 cups, still turned out great).

  • Risotto with peas and rice

    • Hellyloves2cook on May 23, 2017

      Made this last night. I didn't use Basil as it is not in season here in NZ. I used Swiss Marigold Bouilon powder for the stock and added a good sprinkling of nutritional yeast powder also into the pot during the cooking process. I served this with extra grated lemon rind and juice plus more nutritional yeast. It was delicious and soupy. Will be making this again for sure. Perfect comfort food.

    • Hellyloves2cook on May 23, 2017

      Add Nutritional yeast during the cooking process for added flavour.

  • Quinoa with mushrooms and arugula

    • Kirsteen on May 27, 2013

      Quite tasty and a wonderful lunch but be careful not to be too heavy-handed with the "big pinches" of salt!

  • Salmon burgers with pickled ginger and coriander

    • mytai on May 30, 2013

      Make sure the before-cooking mix doesn't get too soupy. Not sure if I didn't drain my ginger well enough or what, but it was a bit soggy and that's not a great thing. Tasted great though - like the filling of a very good dumpling.

  • Two-pan Korean chicken

    • mytai on May 30, 2013

      Tastes even better the next day.

    • joneshayley on May 24, 2020

      Really good sauce, the spice imparts into the meat well, without being overpowering.

  • Arugula salad with roasted beets, squash and shallots with apple cider vinaigrette

    • julesamomof2 on December 14, 2020

      Made this without the beets but it was still very good. The vinaigrette is a keeper.

  • Chicken and turkey sausage paella

    • julesamomof2 on August 15, 2017

      Heavy. Did not seem like a healthy dish to me. Will not repeat.

  • Perfectly cooked quinoa

    • Alro9 on January 15, 2014

      Straight forward way to cook quinoa.

  • The simplest beet salad ever

    • Alro9 on January 15, 2014

      Something wonderfully simple about this but is is very good. Half the beet to roast it in a reasonable time. Sherry vinegar mixed with olive oil is a great combination - I didn't have pumpkin.

  • Avocado toast

    • fourseasonskitchen on February 02, 2014

      My go-to breakfast for the last month!

    • Hannaha100 on February 22, 2021

      Link seems to be broken but it's here https://www.thedailymeal.com/recipes/gwyneth-paltrow-s-life-changing-avocado-toast-recipe

  • Flourless anything crumble

    • annaschmidt on May 22, 2014

      When using sliced apples, I found that this needed significantly more cooking time.

  • Two-pan chicken with harissa, preserved lemons and green olives

    • Penchantforproduce on June 23, 2014

      Luckily I checked on this after 15 mins cooking time because it was already overcooked. Also, it doesn't make sense to use a deboned chicken, doesn't add anything and the meat dries out. Really the recipe is just a good cmbination of favors executed extremely poorly.

  • Cleo's afternoon shake

    • ddenker on April 02, 2019

      I made this today as I was craving a smoothie, but didn’t want anything with more than a few ingredients, so this fit the bill. Despite the fact that I accidentally used coconut water instead of almond milk, it was delicious! I’m sure it will be just as wonderful with almond milk. I can’t wait to make this again!

  • Korean chicken tacos

    • Acequiamadre.nm on June 01, 2018

      Delicious. Next time double to have sauce for eating or future BBQ.

  • Lentil salad with mustard and tomatoes

    • danielis on January 31, 2019

      http://www.saltsugarandi.com/2019/01/Lentil-Salad.html

  • Middle Eastern turkey burgers with cucumber and yogurt sauce

    • danielis on March 06, 2018

      Best turkey burgers I've ever eaten.

Publishers Text

Gwyneth Paltrow, Academy-Award winning actress and bestselling cookbook author, returns with recipes for the foods she eats when she wants to lose weight, look good, and feel more energetic.

Last spring, after a particularly grueling schedule and lapse of overindulgence, Gwyneth Paltrow was feeling fatigued and faint. A visit to her doctor revealed that she was anemic, vitamin D deficient, and that her stress levels were sky high. He prescribed an elimination diet to clear out her system and help her body heal. But this meant no coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, no shellfish, no deep-water fish, no wheat, no meat, no soy, nothing processed at all!

An avid foodie, Paltrow was concerned that so many restrictions would make mealtime boring, so, together with Julia Turshen, she compiled a collection of 185 delicious, easy recipes that followed her doctor's guidelines. And it worked! After changing her diet, Paltrow healed totally, felt more energetic and looked great. Now, in IT'S ALL GOOD, she shares the go-to dishes that have become the baseline for the restorative diet she turns to whenever she feels she needs it. Recipes include: Huevos Rancheros, Hummus Tartine with Scallion-Mint Pesto, Salmon Burgers with Pickled Ginger, even Power Brownies, Banana "Ice Cream," and more!
