We’re all guilty of ditching breakfast for another 15 minutes in bed but did you know just a little snack in the morning can make you feel happier, more alert and improve your chances of maintaining a healthy weight?
In fact studies have shown that eating breakfast can increase memory and concentration levels, it acts as a stress buster, and amongst children, it can improve behaviour and even lead to higher grades!
During Farmhouse Breakfast Week from 25th – 31st January, we’re encouraging people to ‘Shake Up Your Wake Up!’ and what’s better, you can get everything you need right on our doorstep.
If you’re one of the 32 per cent of the population who like toast in the morning, look no further than Lincolnshire Co-op’s own bakery Gadsby’s in Newark. Spread with some Jenny’s Jam or marmalade handmade in Lincoln and wash down with a glass of St Botolph’s Pure Apple Juice from the Skidbrooke Cyder Company in Louth. Job done!
If you’ve got a little more time on your hands and you prefer your bread as soldiers, pick up some tasty Fairburn’s free range eggs. Based in Alford, this family firm has passed through three generations and the chickens are treated as part of the family.
The nation’s favourite way to start the day is with a fried breakfast. Grace your plate with Gadsby’s bread, Fairburn’s eggs, beans and of course, Lincolnshire sausages and bacon. Every day five million Britons will tuck into a banger but with our Lincolnshire Quality sausages and bacon you can rest assured the pork is born and reared on local farms.
Whatever your breakfast choice, it’s likely to be accompanied by a cuppa. Make your first one of the day the best with a local brew from Stokes of Lincoln. They’ve been filling cups since the 1900s and their Gold Medal tea bags are made especially to suit Lincolnshire’s water.
There you have it – a breakfast fit for a king that supports local producers too – the perfect start to any yellowbelly’s day!
