Jennifer Aniston really put the green in her iconic Friends role.
Fans may already know that the 53-year-old actress ate the same salad every day during filming, which made the world fall in love with her as Rachel Greene.
That’s ten years, day in and day out, of the same combination of seasoned herbs, veggies, and grains.
And even though the show ended almost 18 years ago, both Aniston — and her fans — have long treasured the recipe for the robust, high-protein salad.
Aniston’s co-star Courtney Cox, now 57, revealed the fact during an interview in 2010 when she described the daily lunchtime ritual of the three leading actresses, including Lisa Kudrow, 58.
“It was a Cobb salad that Jennifer added turkey bacon and garbanzo beans to, and I don’t know what,” she told the Los Angeles Times. “She’s just really good with food, which really helps. Because if you eat the same salad every day for 10 years, it better be a good salad, right?”
The notoriously healthy Aniston has maintained her plant-based habits, including her Cobb lettuce riff, which she’s since “refined” even further, as the LivingProof haircare spokeswoman demonstrated in a 2015 promotion for the brand. after people.
The recipe for what is known as the “Jennifer Anniston Salad” has been tweaked over the years, many tweaked to suit the chef’s preferences. Now it’s making its rounds again across social media platforms, including Instagram and tick tock – because such a sustainable salad should be in every recipe arsenal.
