    Gwyneth Paltrow vows to live on just $29 worth of food for a week as part of a charity challenge - but is already under fire from critics for her 1,000 calorie-per-day menu
    • The 42-year-old mother-of-two tweeted a picture of her $29 grocery shop, which included eggs, vegetables, brown rice and black beans
    • Gwyneth is taking part in the New York City Food Bank Challenge, which aims to raise awareness and funds for the city's food banks
    • The city's weekly food stamp allowance is just $29 per person per week
    • Gwyneth's healthy food choices have already come under fire from critics who claim they contain nowhere near enough calories for a whole week

    Gwyneth Paltrow has vowed to live on just $29 worth of food for a week, after agreeing to take on a charity challenge aimed at raising awareness and funds for New York's food banks.

    The 42-year-old mother-of-two, who founded popular lifestyle wesbite Goop, posted a picture of her $29 grocery shop on her Twitter account yesterday afternoon, showcasing a range of healthy options, including a variety of fresh vegetables, some brown rice and some black beans.

    'This is what $29 gets you at the grocery store - what families on SNAP (i.e. food stamps) have to live on for a week,' she wrote alongside the image

    • Unsurprisingly, although the grocery store no doubt offered a wealth of cheaper, yet more unhealthy, food options, lifestyle guru Gwyneth opted to stick to what she knows best, choosing only the healthiest and greenest of ingredients for the challenge.

      It looks as though Gwyneth might be going for a Mexican theme on at least one of the days of the challenge, including gluten-free tortillas, black beans, and avocado in her food haul - all the makings of a very healthy Mexican-inspired feast.

      In a second tweet posted yesterday, she said of the challenge: 'We're walking in their shoes to see how far we get.'

      She then proceeded to nominate popular American chef Roy Choi, tagging him by his Twitter username @RidingShotgunLA.

      Gwyneth also encouraged her fans to head over to the Food Bank NYC website, take up the challenge themselves, and donate to the cause.

      There are those, however, who are already criticizing Gwyneth's attempt to experience what living on food stamps is really like; although the actress has vowed to live on just $29 for the week, many suggest that her bizarrely healthy food choices demonstrate just how out of touch she is with the average person.

    $30 a person a week
    you can live on that awful easy if you really wanted to
    that's probably pretty close to what we spend currently I think
    1000 calories a day is probably not great for you long term either(just a guess)
    this broad's a tard

    I can certainly make it 4 or 5 days on $30, if I try.

    You just need to buy stuff which is on sale.

    I purchased 4 pounds of chicken legs/thighs for $3.19 this week. Mix that with rice, and you have an entrée for the week. I purchased two dozen eggs for $1.98 this week.

    And I am all for giving free veggies to poor people. They should have healthy options.



    Being on welfare is not supposed to be COMFORTABLE.

    She should give money to charities like Salvation Army that require people to be drug and alcohol free before taking taxpayer money.

    That's 3 bottles of wine or 2 large bottles of gilbeys vodka or 4 bags of spuds or 6 boxes of cornflakes with milk or 10 packs of hotdogs or 20 home made salads or 10 cans of soup. She is a creep.

    Wonder if she will live in subsidized housing, gets welfare, gets medicaid, sends her kids to taxpayer funded schools, and participate in the huge number of Federal and State programs available, including cash payments to people, according to the number of children people have.

    We all should start tweeting and intagramming "animal advocate" Beefus to encourage her, as a gesture of solidarity with her idol, to do the same.. or at least swear off buying and wearing all those expensive designer brand leather hides of unphotogenic animals that are inhumanely slaughtered and ripped from their skin.
