After I signal on for a Zoom name with Jennifer Aniston, she appears relaxed and glowy (and so do her two pups snoozing within the solar behind her). Certain, she lives in sunny California and is, properly, Jennifer Aniston, however she actually attributes her glow to 2 accessible and non-negotiable steps in her magnificence routine: Meditation and ingesting collagen in her morning espresso.
“I’m a creature of behavior,” she tells me. “I meditate each morning and I do write gratitude pages — not daily, however after I assume to. However having a aware morning is essential to me.” (As she beforehand shared with InStyle, she’s additionally a giant believer within the therapeutic energy of remedy.)
“After I was away the final couple of months taking pictures a film, my physique was not saying to me, ‘Get up and work out.’ My physique was simply actually craving meditation. I needed to have it, trigger the film was very bodily, so I took a break from understanding for slightly. Usually, I would really feel like ‘Oh, I do not really feel like the identical particular person, however it was vital,” Aniston tells InStyle.
“Meditation has all the time been part of my on a regular basis routine, however it was ‘meditate and work out.’ It was type of like a guidelines and I discovered that was not working for me. It may possibly’t be a guidelines. It must be one thing that you simply actually are dedicated to,” she continues.

Talking of devotion, you could have lately seen the salad the actress supposedly ate daily for 10 years on the set of Associates on TikTok (“the Jennifer Aniston salad” has a whopping 60 million views). However as Aniston reluctantly clears up the misunderstanding for me, this was not actually the salad. “I nearly really feel horrible to do that, however I’ve to be fully 100% trustworthy and say, that is not the salad! It is an attractive salad by the way in which however that isn’t what I ate from the commissary at Warner Brothers,” she says. (The precise salad was a tackle the Cobb with lettuce, rooster, egg whites, garbanzo beans, and bacon, FYI.) “It was simply straightforward and satisfying — I am not a scorching meals particular person in the course of the day.”
Clearly, as evidenced by mentioned sport of salad phone, when Aniston’s identify is connected to absolutely anything, it takes off. So, it made sense to “be a part of the Important Proteins household,” since she was “already on the collagen prepare,” she tells me. For these unfamiliar, collagen is the physique’s most ample protein that performs an vital function in strengthening the pores and skin, and likewise helps with elasticity and hydration (aka plump, glowing pores and skin). It additionally helps hair, nail, bone, and joint well being.
“I have been utilizing Important Proteins particularly since 2014. My physician gave it to me and mentioned, put this in your shake within the morning. I observed the distinction in my hair, my nails, my exercises — I simply observed an actual profit from it,” Aniston tells me. She is so hooked she brings particular person packets along with her when she’s touring and provides she’s gotten all of her pals on board with month-to-month collagen shipments (so we will solely assume her Morning Present co-star Reese Witherspoon has began including it to her morning smoothies now, too).
After signing on as chief artistic officer in 2020, Aniston was tasked with “placing her spin on new product improvements” — so she determined to craft the right protein bar that she’d really need to eat on set in the course of the day. (As a result of no scorching meals!)
“I like a protein bar after I’m on the run or working and you do not essentially have the time to sit down — it will all the time be an awesome factor that I’d seize to type of maintain me over however I discovered they have been actually huge and so they did not style nice. The flavour was off and so they have been actually chewy,” Aniston tells InStyle. “So, I figured there is not any purpose we will not make a bar with all the elements that I put into my shakes — Important Proteins, but in addition different vitamins, like maca and all the totally different mushrooms, which we all know have such therapeutic properties — and make them style scrumptious.”

She spent a yr testing the bars to get them precisely to her liking, touchdown on three flavors impressed by her morning shakes: Peanut Butter Fudge, Darkish Chocolate Coconut, and Chilly Brew Espresso — Aniston’s private favourite. Coming in underneath 200 energy, the bars supply 14g of protein and fewer than 1g of sugar and include purposeful elements like maca, maqui berry, and mushrooms together with reishi and lion’s mane.
