The 43-year-old actress -- who recently reconfirmed (jokingly) that she'd rather smoke crack than eat spray cheese -- gave ET a rundown of her diet and her dos and don'ts when it comes to eating right. "I really don't like dill," she told ET's Jen Peros when asked to name her least favorite food. "It's not really a food, but it really offends me."
Another item not in Paltrow's kitchen is a microwave. "I believe in old fashioned ways of heating things up," the mother-of-two touted. "It's really not so tough to put an oven on or gasoline steaming. It's like five minutes."
You also won't find Paltrow reaching for a pre-made salad. "My philosophy is, it's really easy to make your own salad at home. It's cheaper, it's healthier, you know what's in it," she explained. "I've had some great experiences with the grab-and-go salad, and some really, really terrible ones."

While the Oscar winner subscribes to a healthy lifestyle, including drinking a "dense green juice that makes your skin glow" several times a week, she also knows how to cut loose. Paltrow shared that her ultimate cheat day would include french fries and a dirty martini with olives.
As for how she gets her children, Apple and Moses, to eat right, the A-list star has some "tricks" up her sleeve. "I really find if I put out lots of dipping sauces, or lettuce cups, or they're filling things themselves or making tacos, they're more involved. ...They'll eat more vegetables," she shared. "My kids are pretty good at home. I try to keep the pantry pretty clean, but when we're out in the world, it's all Oreos and Cheez-Its and stuff like that, unfortunately."
