Cameron Diaz promotes new health book

She is currently promoting her new health tome The Body Book, which aims to empower other women in making healthy decisions. And Cameron Diaz was a walking advertisement for the manual during an appearance on Good Morning America on Monday. The 41-year-old showed off a rosy glow despite her early morning wake-up call as she chatted with host Robin Roberts about the book. The actress kept it casual in skinny jeans, a plaid shirts, cream blazer and black booties.

Cameron wore her platinum blonde hair pulled back in a high ponytail, and displayed an impressively smooth, glowing complexion. The star opted to keep her make-up natural, adding a dusting of pink blush and a slick of lipgloss.

During the interview, Cameron opened up about her new book, which hit stores last week.  The manual is comprised of three parts that cover nutrition, fitness and mind. ‘I spoke to a lot of experts,’ said Cameron. ‘It’s not an instructional book, it’s an informative book.’ ‘We’re with our body from beginng to end yet we know nothing about it,’ she added. ‘This book is about how to age gracefully. Knowledge is power.’ Cameron also enjoyed a savoury oatmeal recipe from the book with the GMA hosts. ‘I’m always looking for new ways to build flavor and have fun with my carbs,’ writes Cameron in Body Book. ‘For instance, I prefer savory over sweet, so in the mornings when I make oatmeal, instead of eating it with something sweet, I make a yummy concoction of sautéed zucchini with collard greens, caramelized shallots, and egg whites.

‘I top it all off with ponzu sauce (a Japanese sauce made from rice vinegar and citrus) or some lemon juice. It’s a breakfast that is delicious and savory and all the things that I love to taste,’ she added. Cameron also photographed so-called ‘real’ women for her book. She was shown in video footage snapping photos of women of varying body sizes. Cameron appeared to be as much of a natural behind the camera as in front of it as she happily directed the women during the shoot.  The author later visited a Barnes & Noble store in New York City to further promote her new book. Cameron kept it casual for her visit to the bookstore in the Union Square area of the city in black leggings, a grey striped sweater and black leather jacket. The blue-eyed beauty had her blonde hair tied up in a high loose bun and also wore black ankle boots. The Mask star showed no signs of her early television appearance as she smiled with rosy cheeks at the bookstore.
