Dishing About Gweneth Paltrow and More on ABC's The Chew
Clearly “The Chew” crew loves Gwyneth Paltrow. She has been a frequent guest on the show and is a talented cook and author in her own right. Today the crew dished about Gwyneth being voted the most beautiful woman in the world by People magazine. Clinton Kelly said the New York Post disagreed with this choice and referred to Gwyneth as a holier-than-thou elitist. Daphne Oz felt that was like being one of the “mean girls” as an adult. Mario pointed out the newspaper was often a mud raker.
Clinton also discussed how 1 in 10 people in New York City have diabetes. The co-hosts agreed processed food was a major culprit since you really cannot gauge how much sugar and salt goes into it. Cooking your own food gives you greater control over what ingredients are used for better health and flavor. The crew also talked about the best-selling book “Cooked” by Michael Pollen. Mario Batali said he refers to fire, water, air and earth with regarding to food preparation. It is all about getting in touch with what you are eating. Mario further said Pollen indicated if you are not hungry enough to eat an apple, you're really not that hungry.
Finally, Clinton discussed a new way of flirting on Virgin America flights. It seems people can now order drinks and snacks for passengers they think are cute. Mario quipped it could lead to a frequent mile high flyer club. Daphne recalled her days as a fat and nerdy teen and wondered if this type of flight situation would make certain people feel bad. Clinton thought it was a rather fun idea. What do you think?
