Rise & Dine with Bill Granger and Jordans Cereals

Jordans crunchy oat granola with berries and yoghurt

According to research conducted by Jordans Cereals almost half of the Australian population are risking their health and energy by skipping breakfast at least once a week.

Being a lover of food and raised to eat breakfast I rarely skip it, however after attending a Rise and Dine breakfast hosted by Bill Granger this morning I was shocked to learn that my usual breakfast of toast and coffee that's gobbled up quickly isn't good enough.

Accredited Practising Dietitian and Accredited Exercise Physiologist Caitlin Reid says "Choosing to rush through breakfast doesn't do your body any favours. The benefits when taking closer to 20 minutes to eat breakfast are massive and can greatly impact your body in a number of ways". She also says "That it is important to balance breakfast with a mix of protein, good quality carbohydrates and fruit to provide you with enough energy to get you to lunch time".

To highlight what a satisfying, nutrious, non rush breakfast should contain all guests were served a parfait of Jordans crunchy oat granola with berries and yoghurt, poached eggs, bacon, bean tomato hotpot and toast. Platters of fruit, juice, tea and coffee was also readily available.

So what's for breakfast tomorrow? Perhaps a slice of toast with an egg and a bowl of  Jordans crispy oat clusters with some fresh mango.

What do you usually eat for breakfast? Does it keep you satisfied till lunch?
