Actress and mom of two Gwyneth Paltrow sometimes get a bad rap. She has received a lot of flak for her Goop e-mail newsletter (Exhibit A), which occasionally has an exclusive elite air to it, as opposed to being able to appeal to the everywoman.
But that being said, I’m a big fan of her recipes, and am eager to get my hands on her newest cookbook, It’s All Good. It is filled with easy to make, healthy dishes that are firmly rooted in the clean eating movement.
And that’s a movement that speaks to me. Has since 2011.
And when you look at recent pictures of her (thinking about her recent People’s Most Beautiful Woman cover story, for example), it certainly seems to be agreeing with her.
Well, that and partering up with fitness extraordinaire Tracy Anderson too.
I spied a few of Gwyneth’s recipes from her latest cookbook in a recent issue of Shape magazine, and since I had everything on hand to make her Turkey Meatballs, it was kismet.
The day I made them, there were five kids running around the house.
Which means this is the perfect recipe to make when you’re being pulled in 63 directions like that.
Because it can be summed up in just a few sentences. Mix a handful of stuff in a food processor. Combine that with your meat. Form the meatballs. Cook.
