Jennifer Aniston might have the budget for fancy chef-prepared meals, but the sitcom star has revealed that her meals can be, as she puts it, pretty "basic." In a series of diet reveals, the Friends star shared that her lunches and dinners can actually be the same thing, also revealing the healthy breakfasts that kick-start her day. Despite being 55, Jen remains a fitness icon as her toned figure turns heads, and in 2024, she's even fronting low-impact fitness brand Pvolve. Aniston is a lover of healthy, balanced meals, and it looks like what she eats doesn't necessarily have to cost the earth.

Jennifer Aniston Shares Her Favorite Breakfasts

Keep scrolling for more photos. Jen does like to start her day with a nutrient-packed shake, but she does have backup options.

“If I don’t have a shake, I’ll just have some toast and poached eggs with some avocado. Or millet cereal with almond milk and bananas — it’s really yummy, and you can get it hot for winter months," she's shared. In a 2018 reveal, she listed her breakfast time as 9 a.m., stating: “Usually I’ll have a shake, with some sort of pure protein, then bananas, blueberries, frozen cherries, stevia, a vegetable mix of dynamic greens that goes in there, maca powder, and a little cacao."

'Basic' Lunch And Dinner

Per Life & Style, Aniston goes fairly ordinary for lunch and dinner, eating vegetables or a salad with protein, something she called "pretty basic." Jen even revealed that her dinner might well be the "same."

Snack time is a time for healthy fats for The Morning Show star, who will have “Maybe an apple and almond butter” or apple and nuts.

“I don’t let eating habits get out of control where I need a reset button. My general philosophy is to eat healthy. It’s pretty clear: eat as much organic fruits and veggies as you can, keep sugar [intake] low, drink tons and tons of water, and get good sleep," Jen shared back in 2016.

Same Salad Every Day For 10 Years

Jen has made headlines for seeing Courteney Cox that she and costar Lisa Kudrow actually ate the same salad every day for ten years during 1994-2004 sitcom Friends.

"Jennifer and Lisa [Kudrow] and I ate lunch together every single day for 10 years. And we always had the same thing — a Cobb salad," Cox dished to the LA Times. "But it wasn't really a Cobb salad. It was a Cobb salad that Jennifer doctored up with turkey bacon and garbanzo beans and I don't know what." The salad then went viral on TikTok, although Jen did confirm that the recipe posted to the social media platform wasn't the right one.
