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

– I’m Gwyneth Paltrow and this
is everything I eat in a day. (rhythmic playful music) First thing I do when I
wake up is oil pulling with coconut oil. So I have raw organic coconut oil. I put a spoonful in my mouth
while I’m opening curtains and everything, I’m sort
of swishing it around. It’s an Ayurvedic way to
remove bacteria from the mouth. And them I usually have a
large glass or two of water. And then I sit down with my
computer at the kitchen table before the kids wake up. And then I have coffee and some
quiet 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 sometimes
late on a weekend. But, after I take my kids to school, I go straight to the gym. And I always have a big
thing 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 get
a smoothie from somewhere. So I try to have a smoothie
that has some good fat and some protein and some fiber. So sometimes I’ll have like a cacao and almond butter
smoothie with some spinach and some protein powder. My favorite supermarket
called Erewhon is pretty close to the office and they have
amazing smoothies there. So sometimes I’ll have
like a more green smoothie or sometimes if I’m in a rush,
I just eat these delicious peanut butter protein bars
which I can’t remember the name of them but you have to keep
them in the refrigerator. I eat them all the time. I can’t remember the name though. If I’m hung over, which
does happen occasionally, although very occasionally at this point, ’cause A, I’m too old
to 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 or
something 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 at
about between 12 and 12:30 at the office. So I’m usually eating for
lunch stuff that you would see on the Goop website like
a salad with some protein. Or sometimes they’re testing something really fun for detox. You know, they’re using
jicama for taco shells. You know, they’ll do like
a really clean version of a turkey burger with
some 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 need
something salty and crunchy in the afternoon and then
I’ll usually have a cup of green tea with that
and then that will hold me through till dinner. And then for dinner, you
know, 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 one
kind of vegetarian entree. You know, one pot dinners are great. On the Goop website, we developed a bunch of one pot dinners so
those are really great for weeknights as well. I mean, let’s see, what’s my favorite one? There’s one that we’ve
been doing a lot recently which is like chicken in
a dutch oven with lots of winter vegetables
underneath and potatoes. Really easy kind of but super delicious. We try to eat early. It depends on the day. Sometimes my daughter has
something kind of later and then my son has water
polo from seven to 8:30. So sometimes we’re sitting
down right at 6:15. But I like to eat dinner
on 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 to
drink so much on week nights because it’s such an
easy habit to fall into. It’s like you’ve had a stressful
day and it almost is more about the ritual of it. But sometimes work is tough
and you just need one. So I usually have a Gibson. That’s kind of my new thing
which 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 whiskey
on the rocks usually. So, basically I’m turning
into an old Jewish man. I’ve pretty much become
more of an omnivore. So there are just a few
things 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 ’cause
they’re super smart. One night I got on this, I
went 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 which
is 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 them
for a meal, and I would. And I love, I do love pasta, I really do. My favorite french fry in
L.A. is at this grocery store called, Santa Monica Seafood and they have this little counter where you
can go and just have oysters and french fries or delicious
salmon burger they have. And you can have a nice dry glass of wine. And they have my favorite
french fries in L.A. But it definitely smells
like fish in there. It’s a fish market, so it’s
not 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 up
and became successful and was able to go to
restaurants and travel for food, it was like to him the most
extreme pleasure and luxury. And he appreciated it so
much and so I think he really infused my brother and I
with that incredible love and appreciation for
food and good ingredients and the experience of
eating with people you love. And that’s a day of eats for me. Thanks for watching. (quiet upbeat music)
