Gwyneth Paltrow - It's Not All Good For Gwyneth Paltrow; Recipe Books Mauled By Critics

Subscribe to Gwyneth Paltrow alerts

It’s not been an easy ride for Gwyneth Paltrow, with her latest cookbook being largely criticized by the press, though at least the actress can take heart in the fact that the gluten-free, sugar-free cookbook It’s All Good isn’t being torn into quite the same way that Pippa Middleton’s party planning book from last year was.

Paltrow has history with cookbooks, having written My Father’s Daughter to not unreasonable reviews. However, for whatever reason, she’s not gone done well this time out, with the New York Post writing that it reads “like the manifesto to some sort of creepy healthy-girl sorority with members who use beet juice rather than permanent marker to circle the ‘problem areas’ on each other’s bodies.” Further criticism comes from the Atlantic Wire, which writes “It’s All Good seems to take laughable Hollywood neuroticism about eating to the next level.” Paltrow has come under fire elsewhere for her refusal to feed her kids bread, pasta and other carbohydrates, with some saying she is stunting their diet.

It's not all good for Gwyneth Paltrow

However, the actress has some more sympathetic critics across the pond in the UK, with The Guardian writing “If the daily diet in the Paltrow household includes protein (fish/meat/eggs/pulses), unprocessed fats (butter/olive oil), plenty of vegetables and some fruit, then it is healthy, nutrient-rich and lacking in nothing. If that's what the Paltrow kids eat, she's doing them a favour.”
