Jennifer Aniston Dishes on Her Protein-Packed Breakfast Routine (and the One Food She’s Powerless Against)
When it comes to starting her day, Jennifer Aniston is all about packing in the protein.
In a recent interview with Bon Appétit, the former Friends star (who’s set to reunite with her castmates in February) dished on her typical breakfast routine, which consists of three go-to options — all of them rich in nutrients (but still delicious-sounding).
“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,” she said.
“Other times I have eggs over-easy—I crack them into a bowl and I’ll add a white or two into that and pour it all into the pan to get more protein sans too much yolk age. I’ll have that with avocado toast sprinkled with olive oil and salt and pepper.” And the third? “Oatmeal with egg whites whipped into it right at the end.”
When she needs to indulge, Aniston does have one food she’s powerless around: tortilla chips. But not just any chips, of course. “Homemade, really good, fluffy-crispy tortilla chips,” she said.
Other favorite foods she revealed? Soft tacos (not surprising, given her fascination with the Taco Cleanse), pasta carbonara (she and husband Justin Theroux‘s signature dish), frozen yogurt (her occasional midnight snack), and—unlike quarterback Tom Brady—coffee (though she limits herself to one cup a day).
Aniston has recently revealed a lot about her diet, saying that her general food philosophy is to “eat as much organic fruits and veggies as you can, keep sugar [intake] low, drink tons and tons of water, and get good sleep.”
