Farmhouse Breakfast Week runs from Sunday 20th until Saturday 26th January 2013

Are you ready to shake up your wake up? I am! I LOVE breakfast and I am happy to announce that Lavender and Lovage will be working with Shake Up Your Wake Up and Farmhouse Breakfast Week to bring you news, recipes, photos and all sorts of information about how you can bring breakfast back into your lives! I have received a large breakfast hamper full of amazing goodies, to get me going, and I shall be sharing a breakfast recipe every day next week, as well as a Monday Meal Plan too. But for now, just to get you in the mood, are some “Brekkie Tips and Ideas”, as well as links to some of my breakfast recipes on the blog. Here’s some more information about breakfast week:

Farmhouse Breakfast Week is an annual celebration championing the importance of breakfast which aims to get the nation to Shake Up Their Wake Up! 47% of people regularly skip breakfast during the week so our aim is to encourage people to enjoy a healthy breakfast more regularly.

Managed by HGCA, the campaign started in 2000 and takes place every January. It is more successful each year with over 1,000 events and promotions taking place in 2012 alongside extensive media coverage.

Farmhouse Breakfast Week is run on behalf of arable farmers who grow crops such as wheat, barley, oats and oilseed rape. The purpose of the campaign is to raise awareness of the benefits of eating a healthy breakfast and demonstrate the wealth of wonderful breakfast produce available around the country.

All stages of the food chain, from farmers to food producers and retailers to consumers are encouraged to get involved and hold events to promote the importance of starting the day with breakfast. Activities include tasting sessions, breakfast competitions, cookery demonstrations, special breakfast menus and school breakfast clubs to name just a few.

Take Part In #BreakfastWatch

Share your breakfast with the nation during Farmhouse Breakfast Week by taking part in #BreakfastWatch, which aims to be the biggest online celebration of breakfast ever! Simply upload photos of your breakfast with the tag #BreakfastWatch via Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Pinterest and we’ll share these with breakfast lovers across the country.

    I would never dare to skip breakfast, but often it tends to be a standard one. Good to have some good and also some quick ideas to spice up breakfast. I love brekfast!

  2. Christine Sunter says

    I always have porridge for my breakfast but wish I had time to follow it with the French Toast and fruit or Pancakes and Fruit.

  3. HelenD says

    I love the weekends when there’s time for a real feast breakfast.
    Wonderful ideas here – I’ll try some as soon as possible.

  4. Fiona Matters says

    I love the look of the crumpet with breakfast – I wouldn’t have thought of that – I absolutely ADORE crumpets, but have never had them with a cooked breakfast. Thanks for the idea!

  5. shelley jessup says

    Ive not had a english breakfast for about 9 years! Think its time to sit & enjoy one without the black pudding, it always tastes nicer when someone else has cooked it though ;)

  6. shelley jessup says

    This Easter weekend calls for a nice breakfast like this, wonder who I can get to cook it for me ;-)
