It's no secret that Giada De Laurentiis eats oatmeal with olive oil for breakfast. It's "one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast," she told POPSUGAR in an interview. Giada typically recommends drizzling oats with just olive oil and sea salt, but she shared a recipe on her new lifestyle site Giadzy that proves oatmeal with olive oil goes beyond the basics and that you can get creative with unexpected toppings. Giada's savory oatmeal is made with lemon, thyme, chopped almonds, extra-virgin olive oil, and oranges for just a touch of sweetness. Giada writes, "A twist on traditional sweet oats, this savory variation uses extra-virgin olive oil and oranges in lieu of oft- favored brown sugar. The olive oil is packed with heart-healthy monounsaturated fats to help stabilize blood sugar and control cravings throughout the day."
If you're looking for new ideas for breakfasts that fill you up, this low-sugar and high-protein oatmeal is the perfect option.
