Gwyneth Paltrow Swaps Quinoa For Burgers And Goes On A Food Truck Crawl
If you play word association with the name Gwyneth Paltrow the most common answer would probably be quinoa. She's the world's most high profile vegetarian and the no sugar/no dairy/no gluten poster girl. Remember that time she told The New York Post that she would "rather die than let my kid eat Cup-a-Soup"?
It looks like she had had a one day spat with kale. Gwyneth posted a picture of her eating a "bad a*s burger” on her website Goop. Her ex Chris Martin announced that he was no longer a vegetarian since their split, and it looks like Gwyneth might now be a meat eater too.
Gwyneth explained her non meat eating ways to The Guardian: “I hung out with Leonardo DiCaprio when I moved to New York. He was vegetarian and he'd talk about how dirty meat is and how bad factory farming is. I haven't eaten red meat in 20 years and although Leo's not totally responsible, he definitely planted a seed. When I turned seriously macrobiotic, it coincided with my father having been diagnosed with cancer [in 1999]. I felt I could heal him by proxy."

Gwyn didn't stop with the burger. She went on a food truck CRAWL around LA with the Goop team sampling lobster rolls, brisket, grilled cheese sandwiches, s'mores, waffles, ice cream sliders and pizza. They went to FORTY food trucks and sampled over 50 meals. Gwyneth did find one healthy place however, a place named Juicebox. The lesson from the day? A good line = a good sign.
Anyone else tempted to visit L.A?
