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!

The importance of breakfast

Did you know it’s Farmhouse Breakfast Week?

The aim of the campaign is to raise awareness of the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and demonstrate the variety on offer.

With one in four people regularly skipping breakfast, the challenge for the nation is to re-think the morning routine. For further information see http://www.shakeupyourwakeup.com/

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.Breakfast is so important

When you wake up your energy reserves are low. What you choose to eat at breakfast affects your mood, physical and mental performance, weight and your general and long-term health.

If you miss breakfast you are likely to get hungry mid-morning and grab a snack that is high in calories and fat but low in nutrients and fibre.

Studies show that children who regularly eat a cereal based breakfast are healthier and less likely to be overweight. In fact teenagers who ate breakfast cereals more than five times a week weighed less, had a smaller waist size and lower blood sugar levels than those who rarely ate cereal.

But it is not just children that perform less well if they miss breakfast, other studies show that adults who ate breakfast tended to work faster, made fewer mistakes in logic tests and had better memory recall compared with breakfast skippers.

Research among adults shows that people who eat breakfast are more likely to be within the ideal weight range than people who skip breakfast.

So I won’t be skipping breakfast again! I do enjoy muesli and fruit, but at the weekend I often fancy something a little different. Eggs Florentine is a favourite – hearty, healthy and very quick to prepare.

Farmhouse Breakfast Week

Farmhouse breakfast and tedious work week! Yawn, my most dreaded job of the year is now upon me – editing the mini Dairy Diary; hours spent changing days, months, planners, phases of the moon etc.

Not the most exciting task in the world! To make this week more bearable I will be enjoying a delicious homemade breakfast each day to celebrate Farmhouse Breakfast week.

Taking place this week, Farmhouse Breakfast week is a real opportunity for everyone to get into the healthy breakfast habit and celebrate the rich wealth of breakfast foods found across the country. Health professionals all agree we should start the day with a healthy, balanced breakfast. Breakfast can boost energy levels, help concentration and can even help to manage weight.

For a scrumptious, filling treat, try this Egg and Bacon Toastie from Hearty & Healthy Dairy Cookbook – available now for only £2.99 (plus P&P)! For more breakfast ideas visit the Farmhouse Breakfast Week website.
