Gwyneth Paltrow is known for her specific and sometimes peculiar eating habits. Her latest cookbook, It’s All Good, is hitting bookstores very soon. You too can make egg-free huevos rancheros!!!
We’ve already learned that it will cost you more than $4,000 to keep up with Gwyneth’s spring fashion choices, but according to Yahoo! estimates, it will cost you $300 per day to follow Ms. Paltrow’s recipes to a T.
Via Daily Mail:
Starting with breakfast, a spinach and mushroom egg-white omelette came in at $28.27.
Two of the pricier purchases included olive oil spray, $6.29, and duck eggs, which can be hard to find, and in this instance cost $1-a-piece from an unnamed store.
The recipe does state that hen eggs can be used as a budget-friendly alternative, but Yahoo wanted to do it the way ‘Paltrow would’.
Next up, for a morning-to-midday snack, sweet potato and five-spice muffins are one of many stomach-fillers suggested.
Gwyneth, 40, writes that the ‘super-tasty’ treats are ‘always a smashing success in my house.’
But at $44 for a batch of 12, one would hope they did get gobbled up and not left to go stale.
Gluten-free flour, $20, and xylitol (a natural sweetener), $10, were items that pushed the price up.
Lunch was the costliest meal to make. Gwyneth’s chopped salad with tuna and roasted piquillo peppers was billed at $119.38 – making dining out a cheaper alternative.
For the Spanish salad dressing Gwyneth suggests quince paste or ‘good-quality raw honey’ and Yahoo opted for Manuka honey at $25-a-jar.
The vegan dish, which serves six, is priced at $32.50, with quinoa flakes, $6, and Maple syrup, $14, being the main cost culprits.
All of the day’s food was washed down with coconut water, at $5 a pop.
