Actress, lifestyle businesswoman and bestselling cookbook author Gwyneth Paltrow has for years hailed clean eating along the path to wellness.
Paltrow brought “Good Morning America” into her kitchen to show how she makes a couple of staple recipes that fit her healthy habits.
“People think — food that’s on the healthier side is, like, boring or it’s not delicious,” Paltrow said. “And it’s my mission to help people understand that that’s not true — really healthy food can be absolutely delicious.”
