Since 1994, Jennifer Aniston has been stealing our hearts. Through her portrayal of the 20-something character on Friends, she popularized the layered bob aptly called “The Rachel.” Before long, just about every woman wanted to be her. We lived vicariously through her high-profile relationship with Brad Pitt. And, when they broke up, we collectively mourned for America’s sweetheart.
Of course, we shouldn’t have. Aniston can take care of herself. In her September 2018 InStyle cover story — in which she looked amazing, by the way — she clapped back at tabloids that claim she can’t keep a man and that she’s too career-focused to settle down and have a baby. “First, with all due respect, I’m not heartbroken. And second, those are reckless assumptions,” said Aniston. “Maybe my purpose on this planet isn’t to procreate. Maybe I have other things I’m supposed to do,” she added. Go ‘head, girl.
Aniston also detailed how she stays looking so phenomenal, which includes yoga and, more recently, boxing. But diet also has to play a role too, right? Naturally. Keep reading to find out just what Aniston typically eats each day.
Starting the day without caffeine
Starting the day without a cup (or two or three) of coffee may be an impossible task for many. As Americans, we’re especially obsessed with the magical compound called caffeine, with around 90 percent of the country consuming it in some form.
In 2010, you would’ve had to pry the cup of jo from Aniston’s cold, dead hands. “You’re not taking away my coffee or my dairy or my glass of wine because I’d be devastated,” she admitted to Harper’s Bazaar (via People). In more recent years, however, Aniston has pulled back the reigns on her caffeine addiction and swapped out her morning java with something much different.
“When I wake up, I have warm lemon water,” the actress said in an interview with Elle. Aniston isn’t the only celebrity to embrace the citrusy beverage. Gwenyth Paltrow, Gisele Bündchen, and more believe in the magic of warm lemon water in the morning. As far as celeb trends go, this isn’t a bad one to follow. Karen Ansel, a registered dietary nutritionist told Self, “It can be a great way to work in fluids after eight hours overnight.”
Oatmeal with this secret ingredient
Both eggs and oatmeal are common breakfast foods, but most people probably wouldn’t dream of combining the two. Aniston, however, is not most people. After her warm lemon water, she told Elle that she’ll sometimes throw together some “oatmeal with an egg white whipped in at the end.” Umm, what?
Aniston actually picked up the trick from her now-ex-husband Justin Theroux. “[He] taught me that little move to get extra protein! Right before [the oatmeal] is finished cooking, you just whip in an egg white and it kind of gives it this fluffy texture that’s delicious,” she told Elle. Well, you can’t knock it until you try it, right? A quick google search pulls up a variety of “egg white oatmeal” recipes and, truth be told, it doesn’t look half bad. There are even full articles dedicated to why you should try it, citing a “buttery” texture. Hmm. Are you convinced?
Her other go-to breakfasts
When Bon Appétit asked Aniston to describe her typical breakfast, she said she has more than one. In addition to her protein-packed egg white and oatmeal concoction, she detailed other favorites, saying, “Sometimes it’s a smoothie — bananas, cherries, a protein powder of some sort, almonds, cacao powder, and all sorts of other weird antioxidant stuff I can’t remember — with almond milk.”
If she’s not feeling in the mood for a smoothie or eggy oatmeal, she’ll start her day with a couple of “eggs over-easy” with some extra whites thrown in for an additional boost of protein. Though not a millennial, Aniston also embraces the controversial avocado toast. She likes to mix hers with a sprinkle of “olive oil and salt and pepper.” And you don’t need to worry, with an estimated net worth of $220 million, there’s no way she’ll eat herself out of Hass and home.
