5 Days, 5 Ways challenge Good Grains #grainspiration

Who Loves Breakfast FOOD?

I know I sure do and why not indeed, after all breakfast has been said to the most important meal of the day for years. I couldn’t agree more that fueling your body with a good breakfast really does help you throughout the day. I always kick start my day with a nice yoghurt bowl or proats as evident from the Insta.

So what’s all the fuss about breakfast?

Breakfast – it’s in the name breaking the fast giving you energy and nutrients to fuel your day, breakfast increases your alertness giving you energy and a mood boost. That is if you select a good source of carbohydrates and avoid the refined sugar-laden cereals although many companies are reducing the added ingredients and sugars but no quite like Good Grain.

Good Grain is an all natural cereal with 1-3 ingredients depending on which product you go for, but all without any added extra’s (No sugar, No salt) Naturally high in fibre per 100g. Even the cherry flavour is very low in sugars used freeze-dried cherry pieces. They have three different varieties including puffed wheat, multi-grain and multi-grain + cherry all naturally made and high in volume always a bonus.
