So, you may have seen all of the same news reports that I did a few weeks ago about Gwyneth Paltrow's seven day gluten-free diet cleanse. I found it interesting that most reporters (if you can really call them that) painted her as an ascetic, as if it was a bad or weird thing to try to take care of yourself. It might be extreme if it was her regular daily diet, but this is just a seven day diet that is doctor recommended. I was just happy to see the term "gluten-free" attached to a person of influence and mentioned in the media numerous times.
Anyhoo…in case you were intrigued by this diet in any way, I thought I'd let you know that Kim found the actual recipes on Gwyneth's website (www.GOOP.com) and is doing the cleanse right now. Today is day 5 with two more days to go. I'm sure any encouragement would be greatly appreciated. She briefly told me today that she would love to write about it with hindsight and share what it has taught her about food and how emotional most attachment to food is.
I'm so excited to hear all about it. Oh, and if you do choose to do this, be sure not to use barley miso.
