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 Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- 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
