Breakfast Time

Ok. How to start a new blog? How would you start a new day? With breakfast of course!

Breakfast, the most important meal of the day. We should breakfast like a king, so the saying goes. When was the last time you did that?

As a child I often wondered why mum never joined us for breakfast; now I know. The hectic struggle every morning to get to work or school on time, when sleep is precious and time short. So much easier to skip breakfast or opt for a dose of caffeine and a bowl of processed cereal. After all, what difference does it make?

January the 25th to the 31st is Big Breakfast Week www.shakeupyourwakeup.comĀ 

The aim is to encourage us, not only to eat breakfast, but to take advantage of all the fantastic British produce that’s available. I confess that as something of an insomniac all I usually feel up to is something sweet and sugary, a quick fix with as little effort as possible. But, rising to the challenge, the last two days have seen cinnamon french toast, and buttermilk pancakes with bacon and maple syrup. After all, I am interested in the benefits of constructive comfort eating, and yes, it works. I had something to look forward to, felt happy and virtuous while cooking, enjoyed the change and made the family feel loved.

Can I keep it up? Maybe!

Update: Reader, she did not keep it up. Pass the Weetos.
