Four totally brilliant breakfast boosts
This morning it's a good bet we all did some of the same things, whether it was having a shower, getting dressed, taking care of our morning natural beauty products routines and, oh yes, munching some breakfast!
It's a sad fact, though, that some of us miss this early dose of nutrients, even though we're often reminded not to.
And recently breakfast hit the headlines when it was discovered in research that breakfast-skipping men, who regularly didn't eat their morning meal, had more chance of dying from coronary heart disease or having a heart attack.
In the study, featured in Circulation, the journal from the American Heart Association, non-breakfast eaters were found to be younger than breakfast eaters, had a higher chance of smoking, not being married, being employed in full-time work, drinking more and not being as active physically.
Expert Leah E. Cahill, Ph.D, who led the study, called on people not to be breakfast skippers, saying having this meal was linked to lower heart attack risk.
Having lots of different sorts of healthy food in the meal was a simple way to be sure it was giving the right amount of energy and a healthy nutrient balance, she said.
"For example, adding nuts and chopped fruit to a bowl of whole grain cereal or steel-cut oatmeal in the morning is a great way to start the day," she said.
If you're finding yourself avoiding breakfast, maybe you just haven't found a breakfast option that excited you yet?
Swapping between meals from one day to the next will help you feel like you're not getting bored of your breakfast food. Why not try adding some of these four fantastic fast-breakers to your breakfast routine? They're full of brilliant benefits!
A Vitamin C rich wonder, pink grapefruit may be something of an acquired taste, but once you've got that taste, you'll likely love it! The brilliant thing about this breakfast booster is that it can be eaten in a laid back weekend breakfast, with a knife and spoon, or whizzed into a nutrient-filled juice on weekend mornings, to speed things up!
Why not go for Walnuts?
Add walnuts to a breakfast and you're adding several fantastic nutrients. They're known for their Vitamin B6, as well as their Iron and Magnesium, and when bought halved and ready to eat take little time to much in the morning!
Another source of Vitamin B-6, Banan also contains Vitamin C and fibre. If you really do have to eat on the train, these portable snacks could be the perfect stop-gap before getting something more substantial when you reach the office.
Smoothie does it
A smoothie is such a good option in the morning, not least because it's not tricky to make but also very quick to drink, and can complement other breakfast items well.
Why not add a great boost to your favourite smoothie with the addition of our special 'Best Superfood Berry Blend'? It's an antioxidant-rich combination of superfood berries and other exciting ingredients which can be used on cereal or in juice as well as in smoothies, making it a brilliant breakfast option!

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
