7 Things I Like About Gwyneth Paltrow
5. She knows how to eat.

Most of the time, GP is not actually cleansing her colon via kale juice cleanses and colonics. In fact, this former macrobiotic eater is a serious legit foodie. This is something we actually have in common. For seven years, I was a vegetarian and not the most adventurous eater. In college, turned off by the sheer volume of tempeh and tofu options in my hippie school's dining hall, I started eating meat again and a full-fledged love affair with food began. I imagine the same thing happened to GP when she discovered miso soup did not a full meal make. (This is not to say, of course, that you can't be a foodie and a vegetarian at the same time. I would, however, say it's pretty hard to be considered a foodie if you limit your diet to only raw foods.) I haven't yet cooked any of the recipes in Paltrow's cookbook My Father's Daughter, but now that I have resolved all of the ragey feelings brought on by the needless name-dropping that occurs in its pages, I can't wait to start. I want to molest this duck ragu with my mouth. Related: Behold, A Dramatic Reading Of Gwyneth Paltrow's Cookbook
