My 10 Favorite Recipes, So Far, From Gwyneth Paltrow’s Book It’s All Good

By Andrea Howe |

I checked out my copy of It’s All Good from the library just 3 weeks ago, and so far I’ve already cooked over 25 of the recipes from her book. From a simple agua fresca to veggie dumplings made from scratch, I’ve made the sweet and savory, the simple and the complicated — most yielding quite good results.  I’ve only had 1 true kitchen disaster  — which deserves its own post. On my Instagram account I’ve been getting lots of questions from people buying the book and wondering what they should make first, how complicated are the recipes, and can clean eating really taste good. I thought I’d share my 10 favorite recipes so far, that I’ve tried from the book, and give some detail about the results.

My 10 Favorite Recipes, So Far, From Gwyneth Paltrow’s Book It’s All Good

Watermelon & Mint Agua Fresca

Let's start off with a truly simple and refreshing recipe. Gwyneth has an entire section dedicated to various agua fresca recipes, using the same simple syrup base and mixing it up with several different flavor combinations. I made this one first because we had a watermelon hanging around, and have more mint growing than we know what to do with. While refreshing - and the perfect base to take this from healthy to naughty, by adding your favorite liquor -  these drinks are pricey to make because of the use of raw honey.  Not the drink you want to make for a crowd, unless you're rich that is!  Quite simple and delicious though!

    So do you make a batch without dates and nuts for your kids and a batch with dates and nuts for you? Have you tried it with any other types of dried fruit other than dates?
