We know Gwyneth Paltrow eats healthy, but we weren’t aware of the star’s once-weekly drinking practices. According to People, the 41-year-old only has one drink per week, and it’s for a reason. “I think 2021 has been about me trying to value my health and wellness a little bit more…and it’s been really interesting,’ she says. “I sleep so much better with no alcohol, it’s wild.”
Admitting that during the pandemic she would drink and eat whatever she wanted, she says, “You know me, I love a drink, I love the ritual of it, and I love to sit down and have one and chat. I love the taste of alcohol, like, I love whiskey and wine and, whatever, vodka. I’ll take it all. But I think what happened was, having gotten COVID and having felt like s***, or like having had long COVID stuff for a while, I just didn’t feel vibrant.”
According to People, Paltrow shared her favorite healthy snacks and health tips in this week’s Goop newsletter. “It’s a lot of paleo stuff—anyone going to care? Taste Republic Cauliflower Linguini—the best grain-free pasta ever. And I’m liking Northern Berry Harvest granola from Maple Nut Kitchen,” she adds. The breakfast she craves every morning: a paleo crepe with sausage and eggs or a frittata with a hashbrown crust.
“I am focusing more on the fundamentals of wellness, like meditation, hydration, nutrient-dense foods and not having tons of alcohol,” she says, “which I had way too much of during the pandemic!” We can definitely relate to developing unhealthy habits during covid, but Paltrow’s tips have provided all the inspiration we need.
