We put it on almost everything on our table, beside the breakfast cereal. And I don’t eat breakfast cereal.”

Why people loves Merula Olive Oil.

A recent media photo grabbed people’s attention. It showed actor and director Felipe Mattei, pouring olive oil on his breakfast cereal. He made the point that olive oil is a much tastier and healthier substitute for unhealthy animal fats such as cream or milk. So it is time to try to transform your breakfast now. Olive oil has an important place in the thinking-person’s diet especially added to vegetables and salads, but over cereal?

Yet research shows that Mattei is not alone in his practice of adding olive oil to his cereal. Well-known chef and restaurateur Bruno Loubet at the Zetter hotel in London regularly breakfasts on porridge to which he adds olive oil, honey and a layer of chopped garlic. He says: “When I was in Australia I came up with it, because all the ingredients are good for you. It keeps me young and healthy. My chefs are used to it now, but in the beginning it shocked them all.”


Another oats and oil combo is the “hippy breakfast” named such as it was common in the 70s but is worthy of a come back. This is a delicious combination of raw oats moistened with oil, and these days that could be EVOO, and sweetened with honey.

The demise of such a healthy and simple breakfast probably had much to do with the low-fat revolution that scared everyone off fats and oils for the last few decades.
