Happy #BreakfastWeek & whilst we are at it, top of the morning to you all! Hope you are having a lovely Monday morning, even if it is getting a little dark first thing in the morning, nowadays… Oh the joys of winter!
Anyone who knows me can tell you, that I am NOT a ‘morning person’. And yes, there is such a thing. My Boyfriend is usually quite chirpy in the morning, as are my Mum, Dad, Grandmother and many of my other relatives, as far as I know, but unfortunately I just didn’t get that gene. So its not surprise either that breakfast is not a time I usually incorporate in my day to day life, except when on holiday abroad or if I don’t have to rush out straight to meetings, press days or work but, it is something I’m trying to change.
From what I understand, eating breakfast is a really great thing to do as it gives you the fuel for the day, for me I’ve learnt that its great for a healthy lifestyle which I am slowly incorporating back into my life as well as being a time I can use to get my thoughts together and possibly plan out my days a little better. That and getting all the nutrients I need for a jam packed day ahead.
So when Mcvities got in touch to say they were sending a toatally awesome surprise my way, I was eager to find out what they had planned. First thing on a weekday morning the postman delivered me a huge blue and yellow box, containing an equally large and __ balloon and completed with a picker (to pop the balloon). I had so many of my colleagues looking at me at this point, like something really strange was about to happen, so I wasted no time stabbing the balloon with this picker, to which some time later, thankfully the balloon popped! Releasing some paper confetti, I stretched open the balloon to find inside, the new Mcvities Breakfast Biscuits in an array of delightful flavours, some with fruits i.e sultanas/ raisins and the perfect little capsule of a variety of teas to go with the new biscuits, available now from your local supermarket.
Needless to say, I was shocked and equally as excited to try! I honestly loved the biscuits as it made such a difference to my mornings for the rest of that week as I had something new to try and you can bet your dollar, I was jam packed with fuel for the rest of my day and bursting with energy which slowly released throughout the day. Perfect for providing those, like myself leading busy/ chaotic lifestyles, with Oaty Oomph just when you need it most!
Mcvities Breakfast Oaty Biscuits are baked with porridge oats and a wonderful source of fibre, energy, iron and those all important vitamins – B & D.
If you are like me and don’t make breakfast a priority, but you want to change this and become healthy, fitter, energetic and less likely to overeat, I would definitely suggest trying the Mcvities Breakfast Biscuits. I also came up with a cool trick to make breakfast more interesting!
Place Mcvities Breakfast Biscuits in a bowl and smash to pieces with the bottom and edges of a tablespoon.
Top with 1/4 to 1/2 of a 450g tub of natural yoghurt.
Squirt one teaspoon and sugar over the natural yoghurt and continue to do the same with your choice of fruit. I love a great mix of breakfast nuts, (flax/ pumpkin) seeds, fresh raspberries, strawberries, half a banana (chopped) and throw in half a kiwi for good measure. I love the Sungold Kiwi range – they are so tantalizing!
Then devour! Make sure you have a breakfast/ herbal tea to wash it all down too! That’s what I call a productive morning!
