Gwyneth Paltrow Recommends “Slooow Roasted Turkey"

Gwyneth Paltrow Recommends “Sloooow Roasted Turkey” To “Nourish The Inner Aspect”
To “nourish the inner aspect”, Oscar winner Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow (Shakespeare in Love) lists “oysters on the half shell followed by sloooow roasted turkey” in the latest newsletter of her blog “GOOP—nourish the inner aspect”.
Besides showcasing “Slow Roasted Turkey”, Paltrow’s blog chronicles other recipes also, including “Thanksgiving gnocchi”, Molé Sauce, Reuben Sandwich, Russian Dressing, etc., and comments “substitute what would normally be pastrami with leftover turkey and you have a heavenly slice of old New York”.
Hindu statesman Rajan Zed has criticized Paltrow’s blog for mostly being too materialistic and indulging in very mundane things and shallow substances dealing with temporal and external pleasures, and catering to “outer” while claiming to “nourish the inner aspect.”
Zed, who is president of Universal Society of Hinduism, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that the idea of foraying into “inner aspect” was wonderful, but he did not comprehend why Paltrow wanted to market a product with an entirely different label. Although the tagline of GOOP is “nourish the inner aspect”, there were not many deep spiritual and philosophical thoughts in it, which were essential part of “nourishing” the inner self. It was very “external”, Zed added. He offered to help Paltrow, if asked.
Ancient Hindu scriptures Upanishads indicated that finite things could not calm an infinite thirst because the delight lied in the infinite. We could not fill the hollowness with outer materials. We should aim at uniting with Self, described as sat-chit-anand (absolute existence, pure consciousness, outright bliss), Rajan Zed pointed out interpreting the scriptures.
GOOP is said to be a name carved from 37-year old Gwyneth Kate Paltrow’s initials, who is also sometimes known as “part yogini”.
