Actress, lifestyle businesswoman and bestselling cookbook author Gwyneth Paltrow for years touted clean eating on the road to wellness.
Paltrow brought “Good Morning America” to her kitchen to show how she makes some basic recipes that fit her healthy habits.
“People think — foods that are on the healthier side are bland or not tasty,” Paltrow said. “And my mission is to help people understand that’s not true — really healthy food can be absolutely delicious.”
Check out the full recipes below.
Rainbow chopped salad
“I eat salads for lunch every day,” Paltrow said, adding that this recipe is an expression that dietitians love. “Nutritionists say you should try eating the rainbow, right? So this salad is kind of like a rainbow salad.”
