If you have a hard time staying full until lunchtime, you’re so not alone. The key to a more satisfying breakfast is protein, but that doesn’t mean you have to scarf down a massive omelet on the daily before heading out the door. Just take it from Jennifer Aniston, who shared her clever trick for staying satiated all morning long with Elle.
Aniston is best known for playing Rachel Green on Friends. To us foodies, her famous chocolate-cherry protein smoothie and namesake salad (which she, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow used to eat for lunch every day on set) rival her iconic role. But her ingenious oatmeal hack might just be our favorite recipe yet.
“When I wake up, I have warm lemon water and then I have a shake or avocado and eggs, which is one of my favorites,” Aniston says. “I sprinkle a little coconut oil on that. Sometimes I’ll have a puffed millet cereal with a banana, or I’ll do oatmeal with an egg white whipped in at the end.”
It might not sound delicious at first but hear her out. She swears by the hack, an astute trick taught to her by her ex-husband Justin Theroux.
