You Won’t Believe What Gwyneth Paltrow’s Former 7-Eleven Go-To Snack Was
Gwyneth Paltrow certainly knows how to live her best life, starting her days with Moon Dust-filled morning smoothies, enjoying eats from her new cookbook that includes meals that “can be made in the time it would take to order takeout,” and even benefiting from an all-natural beauty line. But that doesn’t mean that Gwyn doesn’t know how to get down and dirty when it comes to her food, admitting that in the past she would regularly indulge in a 7-Eleven snack that isn’t exactly GOOP-approved.
When asked by Refinery29, “What is something that you ate in your 20s that you can’t imagine ever eating now?” Gwyneth admits, “I remember being in college and always stopping at 7-Eleven and getting a pack of Camel Lights and a giant, huge Diet Coke — like one of those vats! Like an ice-bucket-sized Diet Coke.”
But that’s not all. “And they had these nachos at 7-Eleven — oh my god, so gross! I would get the nachos, the Diet Coke and cigarettes, and that’s what I would have all the way back up to Santa Barbara.” Um, yum?
And although nowadays she says she makes most of her family’s meals herself, she does admit that “of course there are going to be nights when we’re going to order in food. Just the other night, I was completely exhausted and I ordered in Japanese on a delivery app.” Not exactly nachos and cigs, but no doubt a much healthier choice.
Do you have a less-than-healthy go-to snack that you might not want to admit to? Confess @BritandCo!
