Gwyneth Paltrow has found herself under scrutiny once again; this time for eating too much!
After finishing up her seven-day food stamp challenge – in which she spent only $29 on groceries – the Goop mogul celebrated with a big old pig-out meal.
While any gal is entitled to a celebratory eat session, Paltrow lent herself to criticism after posting a picture of her food stamp groceries a little too soon before her extravagant meal.
She ended the New York Food Bank Challenge at Los Angeles hotspot restaurant Animal, where she apparently indulged in a lavish dinner.
"It was a prefixed menu, and the tickets were $80," a source told E! of the dinner, a promotional event for friend Jon Favreau's new film, Chef. "Some of the items on the menu were various types of barbeque, potato salad and beans."

After fans began to criticize the actress for her food faux pas, her publicist quickly came to her defense:
"She finished the challenge last week when Mario Batali challenged her on 3 April. She didn't get to post the photos of the groceries until the 9 April," they explained.
"The point of the challenge is to show just how impossible it is to live on 29 dollars a week which is why most families run out of money 2/3 into the week at least."
Do you think Gwyneth should've posted her food stamp challenge a little sooner? Let us know in the comments below!
