Farmhouse Breakfast Week – get on it!

WHAT’S FOR BREAKFAST?
Whether it’s the Full English or a simple cereal and toast, you can’t beat a good breakfast. It’s the most important meal of the day and shouldn’t be skipped – you’re missing out on vital nutrients and energy otherwise!

So we thought, in celebration of National Farmhouse Breakfast Week (22nd – 29th January 2012), we’d help spread the word of why EVERYONE should be eating breakfast and a few tips and ideas to get you eating first thing – inspired by the awesome Shake Up Your Wake Up website!

BREAKFAST IDEAS:
• Full English (sausages, bacon, baked beans, toast, eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes)
• Scrambled/boiled/poached eggs and toast
• Porridge
• Continental (croissants, cheeses, ham…)
• Toast and jam/marmalade
• Cereal
• Bacon butty
• Fruit (and yogurt)
• Pancakes or waffles
• Fruit smoothie

WHY SHOULD YOU EAT BREAKFAST?
• You’ve gone about 10-12 hours without food so your body and energy levels need replenishing to restore your blood sugar levels.
• It helps boost your mood, physical and mental performance (great for energy and concentration levels!).
• If you eat a healthy breakfast, it can actually help you stay within a healthy weight range or lose it rather than skipping it.
• You get a good dose of vitamins and minerals from the main food groups – if you eat a proper, balanced breakfast!
