Hilary Duff Says She Also Follows The Morning Diet Plan That Gwyneth Paltrow “Got In Trouble” For
It seemed like little Hilary Duff had only just grown into her veneers when in the blink of an eye, we were reading that for an ancient, decrepit 35-year-old, she still looks great! She’s been pretty unproblematic for her long celeb tenure, so when she admitted on a podcast that she sometimes practices Gwyneth Paltrow’s widely-criticized morning ritual of not eating food and only getting their tweak on with black coffee, it didn’t sound as alarming or nefarious. The fact that Bethenny Frankel didn’t run to her defense and Hilary didn’t follow it up by trying to peddle and/or eat coochie candle probably also didn’t hurt.
Although all we’ve unsuccessfully requested of Hilary for years now was a Lizzie McGuire reboot, the best she could do was a rundown of her morning eating (or lack thereof) routine on Molly Sims’ podcast. Hilary says that, like a shit-catching Goopy before her, sometimes she skips solids and only goes for coffee. And Molly, who’s been a model mainstay for decades now, said she does the same thing. via Us Magazine:
“Sometimes I try to — you know, Gwyneth’s [got] in trouble for saying this — but sometimes I try to just drink coffee in the morning and starve off my hunger,” the Lizzie McGuire alum, 35, revealed during a Tuesday, May 9, appearance on Molly Sims’ “Lipstick on the Rim” podcast, before the model, 49, chimed in that she frequently follows the same ritual.
Hilary gave no mention of also only ominously swilling bone broth of unknown origin for the remainder of the day a la Goopy, but perhaps in an attempt to preempt the type of criticism Gwyneth got before she tried to clarify that she does actually eat solids sometimes, Hilary then listed some of her breakfast staples when she does decide to eat.
“I wake up really hungry. I’m obsessed with those cauliflower rounds. They’re so good. It’s made of cauliflower, but it looks like pita. … But they’re just cauliflower and, like, one other thing,” noted the Material Girls actress, who shares son Luca, 11, with ex Mike Comrie and daughters Banks, 4, and Mae, 2, with husband Matthew Koma. “They’re super clean and I put it in the air fryer, make it hard, make it crispy. Put, like, egg salad on top of it. I’ll do that or I’ll put, like, avocado or, like, a fried egg and a [Beyond Meat] vegan sausage. I’ll eat some avocado if I’m feeling [like I have] time to design the perfect little thing. I do overnight oats [too].”
Here’s Hilary talking about all of that:
If @hilaryduff eats cauliflower rounds for breakfast, we eat cauliflower rounds for breakfast 🍴 #breakfastfood #gotobreakfast #morningroutine #hilaryduff #lipstickontherimpodcast #podcastclips
And like the people-pleasing golden retriever she’s always seemed to be (and to maybe separate herself from that insufferable self-proclaimed wellness guru who said she pretty much invented yoga), Hilary tried to give some #relatablemom energy.
She added: “I also eat a lot of things that are going in my kids’ lunches in the morning. So, lots of calories happen there! I was talking with my doctor and she was like, ‘What’s your morning like?’ [I said], ‘If we’re being honest, yeah, I eat a chicken nugget in the morning while I’m packing lunches and there’s one leftover.’ Pop it down the hatch!”
Groundbreaking. What most of us would just call “busy, tired, fucking over it already by 7:00 a.m. parent doesn’t have the time or desire to make themselves a proper meal before school drop-off,” Hilary and Gwyneth have turned into some kind of bougie regimen. Let’s just call it the GoopyDuff, which is also probably the name of what Gwyneth suffers from after pumping all of that ozone gas into her exhausted grunthole!
