Gwyneth Paltrow is a real meat and potatoes kind of girl. Or so she'd like you to believe.

The one-time vegan vigilante -- who in 2008 said she hadn't eaten meat in 15 years -- is now teaching her fans how to cook chicken.

The latest post on, the actress' often out-of-touch blog, is a video of Paltrow whipping up roast chicken and potatoes, with a farmers' market salad on the side.

In the video, she shows off her mastery of complicated cooking skills like tossing a potato peeler a few inches in the air and catching it. Nice job, Gwyneth! She later does the same with a dish towel.

The only reason that I included this article was to show you how celebrities are more worried about which cause is trendy rather than the cause itself. Paltrow was an outspoken vegan for 15 years and is now cooking chicken. The article even suggests that she stopped being a vegan earlier when she became pregnant. Now why would she stop when she got pregnant if she wasn’t worried about the effects of this diet on herself and her baby. It just goes to show that a balanced diet which includes meat and dairy is still the best way to go.
