It turns out Jennifer Aniston’s diet didn’t make you as sad as we anticipated (lol sorry, dudes!) but no worries, we’re totally on board with her healthy eating and appreciate the motivation behind it. Not only does she surely benefit from the positive side of good eatin’, she also faces monumental pressure from the Hollywood star system. That’s why it’s nice to know that Jennifer Aniston cuts herself a break on the weekends with her pasta indulgence.

“Pasta has taken over as my new favorite go-to-town food,” she told Elle, then thanked/blamed hubby Justin Theroux for the yumminess. “I don’t know whether I should thank him or hate him for that.”

And what pasta do they prefer? Justin whips up a classic carbonara which is “not that bad for you,” Aniston admitted. “It’s just an egg, parmesan cheese, and a little pasta water. And we substitute turkey bacon for real bacon, so, you know.” Yeah, we know!
