Jennifer Aniston is expanding her empire.

In addition to co-creating Living Proof with her longtime hairstylist and friend Chris McMillan, the 45-year-old actress tells Yahoo! Beauty she has something else up her sleeve. "I would like to do a lifestyle thing, for people who struggle with dieting. I could just make anything for a diet taste delicious," says Aniston, who calls herself "a good alchemist" in the kitchen. "I can mix certain things together that are all very healthy, but you don't feel like you're depriving yourself in any way," she says.

Does this mean Aniston will be writing a cookbook?

"I'm working on it!" she reveals.

Perhaps Aniston's cookbook will include drink recipes, too.

"I love Patrón. I also love Don Julio 1942 as a nice sipping tequila. It's so yummy. It has a little sweetness to it, which I usually don't like. [My fiancé Justin Theroux] actually makes the perfect margarita with it, because there's no agave, no sugar, no mix. It's pure tequila, lime juice, a squinch of Cointreau. It's delicious."

In addition to eating healthy, the Cake star is a fitness fanatic. "Usually, my love is running. I like to do a good trifecta, where I do the bike for 15 minutes, elliptical for 15, and then I run for 15. On the elliptical I kind of do sprints for 90 seconds, take it back to a jog for 30 seconds, and do intervals for the last minutes. Then I mix a day of yoga," she tells Bobbi Brown. "Lately, because of my injury, I've only been able to do Barre method. Boy, I forgot how much that really hurts and kicks your butt."

Living a healthy life has kept Aniston looking youthful. When she talked to Brown last year, she spoke out against her peers who "inject s--t" into their faces in order to smooth out wrinkles and appear younger. "It just doesn't help. It's a slippery, slippery slope," Aniston says. "And like we were saying before, they just start to lose perspective—it's their new normal—so it's a hard one to come back from."

Aniston, who is a spokesperson for Aveeno and its new Unscripted Beauty campaign, says she is happy with who she is. "Maybe because ignorance is bliss, but I don't feel much different than I felt in my 20s, except I feel physically better. I also love myself more," the actress tells Yahoo! Beauty. According to Aniston, "The most beautiful thing that reflects out is inner confidence and inner sort of love."

"Our generation knows what we should put in our bodies, and that we shouldn't be trashcans putting all sorts of crap in there. We know all the benefits of eating organic fruits and clean foods," the Friends actress adds. "We learned that smoking and sugar are the enemy. Our generation knows these things."
