Each year, Gwyneth Paltrow kicks off January with a smart cleanse designed to restart her body after weeks of indulgence over the silly season — and she encourages you to do the same.
Last year, the clean-eating guru promised “no sad desk lunches, soothing and cosy breakfasts and warm, filling dinners” in her annual detox plan.
This year, she’s decided to take it one step further with claims that the 2018 version is even more doable than the last.
How? By creating quicker, simpler meals that don’t skimp on flavour. These include basic condiments such as sauces and dips in addition to healthy snack recipes that you can make in advanced (think; SunButter Satay Sauce and Green Curry Paste).
The aim here is to prepare “complex-tasting, homemade, clean meals every day, with a relatively low-impact cooking schedule.” Not only will this stop you from getting bored with the same old food, it will help keep you on track and away from any temptations that may jeopardise your progress (eggs on toast we’re looking at you, apparently).
Complete with 20 recipes, a shopping list and detailed schedule to help you along the way, Paltrow’s recommendation is that you do one big shop and meal prep on Sunday and a mid-week run for your extra proteins.
You’ll also need to put aside about 20 minutes every morning to prep for both breakfast and lunch and another 30 minutes at night for dinner.
