This week is Farmhouse Breakfast Week and I was sent a lovely hamper of goodies to help me on my quest to have a decent breakfast every day this week.
Farmhouse Breakfast Week is an annual celebration championing the importance of breakfast which aims to get the nation to Shake Up Their Wake Up! Apparently 47% of people regularly skip breakfast during the week so the aim of Breakfast Week is to encourage people to enjoy a healthy breakfast more regularly.
The Shake Up Your Wake Up - Farmhouse Breakfast Week campaign is run on behalf of arable farmers. The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness of the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and demonstrate the wealth of wonderful breakfast produce available around the country.
You can take part in the Breakfast Weekcampaign via #BreakfastWatch
Share your breakfast with the nation during Farmhouse Breakfast Week by taking part in #BreakfastWatch, which aims to be the biggest online celebration of breakfast ever! Simply upload photos of your breakfast with the tag #BreakfastWatch via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest and they’ll share these with breakfast lovers across the country.
For breakfast inspiration check out the Shake Up Your Wake Up website for delicious breakfast recipes which range from full cooked breakfasts to quick and easy breakfasts that can be eaten on-the-go or taken to work.
Why eat breakfast?
Breakfast eaters tend to be slimmer than breakfast skippers. Eating breakfast can aid concentration and mental performance at work and at school. It provides you with the nutrients and energy needed for an active lifestyle or long commute or walk to work/school. Research shows that breakfast eaters are less depressed and have lower levels of stress than breakfast skippers, if you are hungry you are much more likely to be grumpy.
