Gwyneth Paltrow is still promoting her book, It’s All Easy, her latest elitist cookbook. And of course, the whole tour road is a tedious string of interviews packed-full of amazing throw-away judgments on food, cooking and how the peasants live and eat. So what did we learn today? Well, Gwyn HATES dill and she thinks microwaves are for garbage people. Check it:
Her least favorite food: “I really don’t like dill. It’s not really a food, but it really offends me.”
No microwaves: “I believe in old fashioned ways of heating things up. It’s really not so tough to put an oven on or gasoline steaming. It’s like five minutes.”
No pre-made salads: “My philosophy is, it’s really easy to make your own salad at home. It’s cheaper, it’s healthier, you know what’s in it. I’ve had some great experiences with the grab-and-go salad, and some really, really terrible ones.”
Getting her kids to eat healthier: “I really find if I put out lots of dipping sauces, or lettuce cups, or they’re filling things themselves or making tacos, they’re more involved. …They’ll eat more vegetables. My kids are pretty good at home. I try to keep the pantry pretty clean, but when we’re out in the world, it’s all Oreos and Cheez-Its and stuff like that, unfortunately.”
I mean, if you’re Apple or Moses, I’m sure you get subjected to enough weird, whole foods and odd parenting techniques. I feel like giving the kids an Oreo or two when they’re waiting in some stuffy press room for their mom to stop spouting dill-hate won’t be the end of the world.
