Last weekend, Jennifer Aniston celebrated her 48th birthday in Mexico by flaunting a body that looks like it belongs to someone half her age. After picking our jaws up off the floor, we got to investigating. Here’s exactly how everyone’s favorite friend achieves the look
SHE PUTS A “SKINNY” SPIN ON CHEAT MEALS
Further affirming the fact that she could be your bestie, Aniston admits that pasta is her guilty pleasure. But when she indulges, it’s with a healthy twist, like veggie lasagna. “You have zucchini, eggplant that acts as a paste, and you layer it with different cheese and put it in the oven,” E! News reported. And when Aniston enjoys hubby Justin Theroux’s irresistible carbonara dish, it’s with one caveat: “We substitute turkey bacon for real bacon.
SHE MAINTAINS A BALANCED DIET ALL YEAR LONG
“I don’t let eating habits get out of control where I need a reset button,” she told Yahoo! Food. So while the rest of us rebounded from the holidays with Dry January or Whole30, Aniston’s been living her best (healthy) life the entire time. She makes it sound easy: “Eat as much organic fruits and veggies as you can, keep sugar [intake] low, drink tons and tons of water, and get good sleep
SHE PRACTICES WHAT SHE PREACHES.
While some celebs are out there promoting ridiculous products for money, Aniston only reps ones she truly believes in. Those include Smartwater, which has added electrolytes, Aveeno (she’s a fan of their Absolutely Ageless line), and Living Proof hair products to keep her famous locks looking healthy
HER REFRIGERATOR STAPLES ARE SUPER HEALTHY
And they’re already made and prepped. “I always have cut raw vegetables in a Tupperware container,” Aniston shared with Yahoo! Food. She also stocks hard-boiled eggs and pulled chicken on the reg — plus a special treat in the freezer. “I was at a spa one time, and they gave me a little cup of frozen grapes after my mud bath soak or whatever,” she told Women’s Health. Now Aniston makes them herself — she prefers red grapes — for a snack.
