This Is What Giada De Laurentiis Really Chows Down On
It might be hard to believe that a celebrity chef chows down just like the rest of us - and might be harder still to believe that the chef is Giada De Laurentiis. Famous for eating, quote "a little bit of everything and not a lot of anything," here's a peek at how Giada satisfies her hunger in real life.
When De Laurentiis wakes up, she doesn't head straight for the coffee. Instead she reaches for water with lemon - two glasses to be exact - and prefers warm to ice cold when she's still shaking off the previous night. She told Delish,
"You get dehydrated as you sleep and need to help your body rehydrate when you get up."
According to a nutritionist for Business Insider, there are plenty of reasons to knock back a couple glasses of water first thing in the morning, especially if your routine includes a cup of joe. The expert explained,
"Most people have their coffee first thing in the morning. Although it is a good source of antioxidants, it is also dehydrating. You can offset this with water."
Other benefits include increasing your alertness, fighting off illness, and jump-starting your metabolism. Sounds like Giada gets her day started right.
