Cameron Diaz has revealed the foodies that inspire her most and there is a familiar Australian face in the mix.
Chatting to lifestyle magazine GOOP, Cameron revealed that she has many talents, including being an impeccable home cook. But, she has some great inspiration, naming LifeStyle FOOD's own culinary queen Donna Hay as one of the most inspiring foodies she follows.
She also gave honorable mentions to Rachael Ray, Gwyneth Paltrow and her mum, sharing that she loves cooking for those close to her.
"I love to grill, so I love to have a protein for everyone, usually steaks, or lamb chops, or a fish," she said of her relaxed cooking style when entertaining.
"And then I throw a few seasonal veggies on, too. Then, ?a couple of salads—either hearty with cabbages or fresh and bright with a citrus—and a big bowl of simple pasta. I love having a quinoa pasta with olive oil and garlic or veggies."
When it comes to the most important meal of the day, Cameron says the best breakfast foods are made from what ever you have in your fridge.
"I usually use whatever is left over in the fridge from the night before," she told GOOP.
"I first sauté whatever the freshest veggies are with garlic, add the leftover protein, carbs, a little chicken stock, and then add either a fried egg or a scramble and voila!"
Associating great food with good health, Cameron said her go to weekly meal is “Kitchen sink” soups and hopes her new book -The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time - encourages "people to be healthy and live their life to the fullest."
We hear you Cameron!
