Good news: Even Jennifer Aniston can’t resist the power of a bowl of spaghetti carbonara.

While her previous guilty pleasure cuisine was Mexican food (she recently said that tortilla chips are the one food she’s powerless against), the actress has swapped it out for Italian. “Pasta has taken over as my new favorite go-to-town food,” she told Elle, crediting her husband Justin Theroux for the switch. “I don’t know whether I should thank him or hate him for that.”

Theroux’s version of classic carbonara is “not that bad for you,” Aniston said. “It’s just an egg, parmesan cheese, and a little pasta water. And we substitute turkey bacon for real bacon, so, you know.”

Another culinary tip she’s learned from her husband? Whip an egg white into oatmeal just before eating. “It kind of gives it this fluffy texture that’s delicious,” she said. (Not to mention, added protein, which we know she loves in her breakfast.)

When she’s not splurging, though, Aniston has an unsurprisingly balanced diet. “Some form of vegetables or salad with protein — pretty basic,” she described of her typical lunch. And for dinner? “Probably the same,” she said.

Aniston has previously discussed her husband’s cooking prowess, saying earlier this year that they “love to tinker in the kitchen” together.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

“Justin’s version of carbonara?” Egg and parmesan IS the recipe for carbonara. Turkey bacon is disgusting; you’re better off eating the real thing.

I’m a fan of hers but I like eating real pasta with sauce as it has to do with moderation of anything you eat & still healthy. Being in show business is another matter, as it is all about not only talent but looks.

She said pretty basic. About sums her up.

Only a woman this boring would think eating something is newsworthy

Really – she is as boring as her food choices.

Enough! on

Seriously, People Mag? Why these idiotic stories? Do you owe Jennifer’s publicist or something?

I don’t have anything against Jennifer Aniston, but man she seems to be a slave to eating healthy… whenever she talks about she does eat, I feel sorry for her… I’d get sick of lettuce leaves and lemon water and all that crap ALL the time. Now pardon me as I have a couple of Oreos.🙂

Nothing new, I’ve been eating pasta and sweets for a year now, still losing weight. If you really want to lose weight, you’ll just ignore that voice in your head that blames everyone and everything else but yourself. I’ve lost 30 lbs just keeping an eye on those 10 golden rules of the Loaded Gun Diet.

I think next time she invited friends over they should fire up the grill with some of the most juicy steaks , but insure the grill is right by the back door , so the smell gets all in house . Hey it might just work !! (mouth watering yet !).
