I saw this recipe on Self.com and had to share it since it’s very fitting of the lifestyle I promote. Better yet? It’s from the new cookbook, It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great by Gwyneth Paltrow and Julia Turshen. Can’t go wrong with something Gwyneth Paltrow puts together, right? If you haven’t checked out her blog, Goop, check it, people. She shares some great recipes; some that are gluten free and vegan. And others that are just plain decadent and delicious.
