I have mixed feelings about the clocks going back at the end of October. In years gone by when I was still at school I did appreciate the lighter mornings, and I am sure that my mother felt happier about my walking to the station; and crossing a busy road en route, with the lighter mornings.
These days I am not naturally a morning person, left to my own devices I’d naturally wake up at about 9.30 / 10am, but I need to make the most of the daylight in the winter so need to be up, ready to cook and photograph by noon most days.
I tend to eat my breakfast about an hour after getting up – in the days when I commuted to work I’d nearly always have coffee and breakfast at my desk – these days I work from home, but still need a portable grab ‘n’ go breakfast for when I am travelling or running to a meetings, or simply have lots of work to do.
The new soft bake biscuits from belVita are idea for breakfast on the go. They are substantial, softly chewy with plenty of texture, but not crunchy, so provide a softer and gentler start to those winter mornings when I’d rather still be under my duvet, but have to get up and go.
Available in three flavours, Golden Grain, Red Berries, and Chocolate Chips the biscuits are made with five whole grains; for slow release carbohydrate, and each biscuit contains 15% of your RDA of vitamin B6, folic acid, magnesium and iron. One of the new belVita Soft Bakes with a piece of fruit, dairy product and essential morning tea of coffee will contain 20% – 25% of your daily calorie needs so makes an perfect balanced breakfast. With one in three people skipping breakfast during the week they are a handy way to make sure that you eat in the mornings, and at a RRP £2.79 for a box of 5, are considerably cheaper than buying breakfast each day.
I’ll be keeping at box handy for a grab and go breakfast, and if you are a regular breakfast skipper or need breakfast on the go why not give them a try? When I tried these I ate one at 9.30 am, and come 1.30 I was not even thinking about lunch, which for me is unheard of, as I am usually starving by then.
