“I could just make anything for a diet taste delicious.”

O.K., Jennifer Aniston, you officially have our full, undivided attention.

In a new interview with Yahoo Beauty Editor-in-Chief, Bobbi Brown, Aniston opened up about beauty, self-esteem, plastic surgery and, drum roll please, the cookbook she’s currently writing.

“I would like to do a lifestyle thing, for people who struggle with dieting. I could just make anything for a diet taste delicious,” she told Brown, revealing she’s just begun working on a cookbook. “I’m a good alchemist … I can mix certain things together that are all very healthy, but you don’t feel like you’re depriving yourself in any way.”

Aniston also talked her fiancé, Justin Theroux, and more importantly, his “healthy,” delicious margarita. That’s right. Healthy and delicious.

“Justin actually makes the perfect margarita with [Don Julio 1942], because there’s no agave, no sugar no mix,” she said. “It’s pure tequila, lime juice, a squinch of Cointreau. It’s delicious.” (New life goal: get invited to Aniston and Theroux’s pad for happy hour.)

As for Aniston’s food philosophy, she tries to eat lots of natural foods and avoid the “crap.”

“Our generation knows what we should put in our bodies, and that we shouldn’t be trashcans putting all sorts of crap in there,” she said. “We know all the benefits of eating organic fruits and clean foods.”

Lets just hope that she doesn’t put a recipe for an English Trifle in it!

Aside from steamed fish, chicken and vegetables, I can’t imagine anything else in there. And last I read, she had her food delivered via one of the “diet” plans who bring your meals to your door. Maybe she’ll take pictures of that food!

Wha? on

Says the ex smoker. She’s great but comes across too perfect. Go go eat some brownie batter Oreos, JA, and I’d like you more.

Looking forward to this cookbook. It’s always good to see healthy recipes to try.

15 years ago she was on top of the world. I really feel sorry for her now. No relationship with her dad, no marriage, no children, and her movie career certainly didn’t turn out as she had hoped. A perfect example of how putting work before family, children and relationships doesn’t bring true happiness. What is up with a cookbook? She doesn’t strike me as the type that’s at home cooking. My guess is she has everything delivered in.

well she needs to stay relevant somehow!!

Seriously? She looks pretty happy to me…..not everyone wants to get married and have kids, which don’t always make a person happy–just look at the divorce rate and single parent households.

Spoken like a true rich person! I love how people like Jennifer and Gwyneth Paltrow conveniently forget that an awful lot of people who don’t earn millions for pretending to be other people can’t afford to eat “organic”.

why do all of these “celebrities” think that we commoners need their “lifestyle” advice? never once heard of her cooking anything……

Another celebrity cookbook? Ugh.

Oh my goodness, if you don’t want to look at her book and her recipes, then don’t. It’s too bad how articles like this turn into a forum for snide remarks. Sounds like a lot of jealousy and envy in reality.

She has a personal chef, so you know it will be “ghostwritten”. Her next books will be about raising children and long term relationships.
