I am currently reading "It's All Good," a cookbook with recipes by Gwyneth Paltrow, and thought I'd share some of my favorite recipes with you ladies. I've always admired how fit Gwyneth is and I've kept up with the different ways she has experimented with eating over the years. As you know, there are so many ways to eat, tons of diets and fads out there for us to choose from. At this point in my life I think it's about eliminating foods we are clearly allergic to and eating the rest within moderation. That is, if you are able to eat in moderation. These recipes by Gwyneth Paltrow are all nutritious and surprisingly easy to make!

1. Savory Quinoa & Egg

Savory Quinoa & Egg

To make this first on the list of recipes by Gwyneth Paltrow, you will need to prepare 1 cup of perfectly cooked quinoa first. Quinoa is a wonderfully healthy food that lends itself well to a variety of recipes. This one is ideal for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 garlic clove, finely chopped

2 large leaves of kale (stems discarded), finely shredded

1 cup of quinoa

Freshly ground black pepper

1 Fried or Poached Egg

1 scallion, white and light green parts only, very finely sliced

1 and 3/4 cup water

Coarse sea salt

Directions:

Rinse the quinoa thoroughly and place it in a pot set over high heat with the water and a pinch of salt. Bring the quinoa to a boil, lower the heat, cover the pot, and cook until all the liquid is absorbed and the quinoa's germs look like lots of little spirals, 12 to 15 minutes. Turn the heat off, place a dry paper towel between the pot and the lid, and let the quinoa sit for at least 5 minutes before giving it a fluff with a fork.

Now you are ready to make the main dish! But note that you will only need a 1/2 cup of quinoa, not the entire cup you just made. So this means you can make twice as much or save the other half in the fridge for another time!

Heat the oil and garlic over medium heat in a small skillet until the garlic begins to soften, just 1 minute. Add the shredded kale and cook, stirring now and then, until the kale is wilted, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the quinoa and cook, stirring until warmed through, another 2 minutes. Season the mixture to taste with salt and pepper. Place the mixture in a shallow bowl or on a plate, top with the egg, and sprinkle with the scallions. Add a final grind of black pepper if you like.
