Los Angeles: Can Gwyneth Paltrow live on $29 a week? Of all of Gwyneth Paltrow's eccentric endeavours, her latest is by far the most affordable - the actress is planning to live on a $29 food budged for a week. This is the allowance of families on the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP).

The actress has accepted the #FoodBankNYCChallenge from celebrity chef NYC Food Bank board member Mario Batali, who also challenged Sting and Debbie Harry, Us Weekly noted. The challenge limits people to $1.38 per meal for a week.

Paltrow, who follows heaps of nutritional guidelines - no gluten, no dairy, low carb, etc. - posted a photo of her weekly food haul on Twitter this past Thursday. The shopping list included limes, cilantro, corn, whole grain brown rice and eggs.

Participants can use coupons, but they cannot use food that was already in their homes or food given to them by others.

So can pamper-addict Paltrow do it? We'll find out soon enough, since she seems keen on keeping us fully up-to-date via Twitter.
