So last week I was sent a lovely package from Mornflake.
Some Plum and Almond granola, and some Cranberry and Nut muesli. I have been in a bit of a breakfast rut lately- sticking to porridge. I do love porridge, but I have not even had pancakes for months, so it was time for a change.
On Saturday morning I had some of the muesli alongside some clementines and a tea. There is barely any added sugar (the dried cranberries contain some, but that is it) which I think is great,as I feel dried fruit is enough sweetness. I loved the little bits of apple in there, and the nuts (could always do with more nuts though). I am not a big dried apricot fan, but the pieces were only tiny. I didn’t measure out a portion (trying to steer clear of weighing foods now) so I have no idea how much I had, but I ate this at around 8.30am on Saturday, and it kept me going all through the school Christmas Fayre, including taking down the grotto- I had a hot chocolate at around 2.15pm, so pretty impressive.
On Sunday morning I had some of the granola with a chopped apple- before doing the Jingle Bell jog! I loved the pieces of plum in there, but this had honey and added sugar which I didn’t think it needed. I think it would be gorgeous with a sprinkling of cinnamon as that would go so well with the plum and almond flavours. Again I didn’t weigh out the portion, but it says the pack contains 11 45g portions- this kept me going during the 5K jog (I had an early breakfast as I had yet more work to do before heading out)- I probably ate it at around 9am, and had lunch at around 1pm, so again, not bad.
I prefer the muesli as I like that texture more, but the granola would be good to sprinkle on yoghurt and things.
Do you ever get stuck in a breakfast rut?
