Farmhouse Breakfast Week & Our Favourite Dairy Diary Breakfast Recipes

I don’t know how people can skip breakfast. I am hungry from the moment I wake up!

In fact, I think breakfast is
my favourite meal of the day.

I love pretty much all breakfast goodies (though a full fry-up can make me feel a little queasy unless followed by a hike) from fresh fruit, to cereals to toast with preserves and pastries. Yum!

Next week is Farmhouse Breakfast Week, which encourages everyone to enjoy a healthy breakfast every day and reap the rewards, such as:

  • Breakfast eaters tend to be slimmer than breakfast skippers.
  • Eating breakfast can aid concentration and mental performance at work and at school.
  • It provides you with the nutrients and energy needed for an active lifestyle.
  • Research shows that breakfast eaters are less depressed and have lower levels of stress than breakfast skippers.


So here’s a round-up of my favourite breakfast dishes from Dairy Diary. Enjoy!
