That which has been Gooped can be made even Goopier by Cameron Diaz.

This week, the 43-year-old actress is featured in friend Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop lifestyle newsletter, where she dispenses health and diet advice of her own and also hacks a recipe from Paltrow's new cookbookIt's All Easy (Spoiler alert: She added sautéed cubed steak and a sunny side-up egg to a cauliflower and kimchi fried rice dish).

Diaz said she likes to placing eggs on breakfast dishes made with leftovers.

"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!" she said.

Diaz, who lists Paltrow among her food inspirations, also talks about her favorite foods in general, saying her pasta of choice is spaghetti aglio e olio (with garlic and oil), she opts to drink water and likes to buy brown rice couscous in bulk. 

She also reveals her preferred form of exercise is strength training and talks about another subject she has occasionally discussed in the press—aging. The actress' new book, The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time, was released this week.

"All aging is a result of our trillions of cells aging, and once you understand the science, it gets way less scary," Diaz said in Goop.

Premature aging, she said, occurs due to "stress," inflammation," "lack of movement," "poor nutrition," "lack of sleep" and "not ​being connected to the people you love.​"

Diaz and Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden, 37, celebrated their one-year wedding anniversary in January.

"You know, nothing matters now that I have my husband," the actress said on Andy Cohen's radio show Radio Andy this week. "Like, I don't even remember any of that. All of that is like, that's the thing, that's how I know he's my husband...No one compares. Everything else just like washes and slips away. You realize like, 'Oh this is like the real thing is. This is what real love is. This is what real commitment and devotion is. This is the person you build your life with.'"
