Take Time for a Better Breakfast

Flahavan’s Organic Oats Giveaway and a Better Breakfast:

This giveaway seems particularly appropriate during my War Time ration week as I am eating porridge for breakfast and flapjack for ‘dessert’.  And I have to say I am rather enjoying both.  While oats are a very economical way ingredient (and one that was never rationed during the war), they have a lovely nutty taste.

If you’d like the chance to win a whole selection of Flahavan’s organic oats and some rather fun goodies including an alarm clock, bamboo utensils and a branded apron then all you need to do is to tell me your favourite way to enjoy oats as a comment on this post, and then complete the rafflecopter for extra entries.

Why are Oats such a good idea?  well,

Porridge has the highest protein content of all cereals.

It’s an idea food for slimmers – low in calories but filling.

Oats can help to stabilise blood sugars – reducing the risk of type II diabetes

Eating porridge helps the brain to produce serotonin. Serotonin is a brain transmitter that helps keep our spirits up and our appetites down. Levels of serotonin dip when sunlight is low – i.e. during the winter months and can frequently lead to Seasonal Affective Disorder.

So now, would YOU like to win one of three hampers each worth around £50?  Just enter via the rafflecopter below, remembering to leave a comment on the blog first!

    I tolerate oatmeal with apples and cinnamon. Cheerios is my favorite cold cereal. I can even choke down a few oatmeal cookies (though more fond of chocolate chip). My wife recently purchased a 42 oz tub of the stuff. It will probably last until Armageddon. I couldn’t imagine “winning” more. ;o

    I LOVE making crock pot steel cut oats. Dump everything in the night before and you have hot oats for breakfast and enough leftovers for the rest of the week!

    mix oatmeal, nuts, raisins, seeds etc to your own recipe to make a luxury muesli for a fraction of the cost of posh Knesset.

    I’m a big fan of porridge, love it for breakfast but also in cookies. It gives cookies a lovely texture and a great taste too

    I love porridge – a real treat on a Sunday morning when i have time to enjoy it. Love it with some golden syrup swirled into it.

    I adore Flahavans jumbo porridge oats! (I haven’t tried any of their other products though!) At the moment, my favourite way to eat them is to turn them into chocolatey granola clusters which we then eat for breakfast with milk, or for dessert with yoghurt. Delicious!
