The Iron Man actress revealed in her latest Goop newsletter:
"As I suspected, we only made it through about four days, when I personally broke and had some chicken and fresh vegetables (and in full transparency, half a bag of black licorice). My perspective has been forever altered by how difficult it was to eat wholesome, nutritious food on that budget, even for just a few days—a challenge that 47 million Americans face every day, week, and year.
A few takeaways from the week were that vegetarian staples liked dried beans and rice go a long way—and we were able to come up with a few recipes on a super tight budget."
Hopefully this *attempt* brings even more awareness to the issue that so many people face in the US.
Although, it would have totally been better had she actually set out to do what she promised!
Alas, celebrities — they are NOT like us!
