Many of you have asked me what life is like now that we are a family of six. At the moment I am pretty lucky as I have my husband home to help out, so you are better off asking me again in a few weeks when it is just me and the kids. In saying that, even with the extra pair of hands life is busy and it is easy to forget to eat properly when you are running around all day. The key is to make sure that what you eat is healthy and wholesome which is exactly what Goodness Superfoods is all about.
You may have spotted the Goodness Superfoods range at your local Coles, Woolworths or independent supermarket. With so many breakfast options available these days it can be hard to pick the right product for you, you want something that suits your body and your needs but it also has to taste good. Goodness Superfoods has got you covered with a great selection of products specifically developed to provide you with the energy you need, improve your heart and bowel health, reduce cholesterol, lose weight and more, there is a healthy and tasty breakfast solution for everyone.
What makes Goodness Superfoods stand out from other alternatives in the breakfast aisle is the super wholegrain BARLEYmax, a natural, non-genetically modified wholegrain that contains twice the dietary fibre of regular grains, has four times the amount of resistant starch and has low GI. Within the range you will find breakfast cereals, cereal bars, oats porridge, wraps and fibre boost sprinkles, all of which contain barleymax.
Compared to other cereal brands that use bright (artificial?) colours, fancy shapes and cartoon characters to win kids over the Goodness Superfoods range may look a little boring and serious, but my tribe really loves the taste and I know it is much healthier for them. They think the Apple Sultana Cereal Bars are a great treat and the best part is that one bar meets 30% of your daily fibre intake, how easy is that?
Another big winner for families are the Wholegrain Barley Wraps, you just can’t go wrong with wraps for lunch or dinner. My big three love putting together their own wraps, they loads them up with lettuce, cucumber, tomato, mushroom, carrot, cheese, capsicum and chicken/beef strips and finish it all up to the last crumb. Such a simple meal idea but never any complaints and again very high in fibre.
Because I am currently breastfeeding our new addition I am extra aware of what I eat, after all what I eat she ‘eats’ too so I want to make healthy food choices. A good breakfast with a bowl of Heart 1st Cereal (love the cranberries, seeds and nuts) and some natural yoghurt is a great, delicious start to my day and being a low GI food it means glucose is released more slowly and steadily keeping me energetic for longer (and you can imagine with four little ones under 5 I need all the energy I can get).
The past couple of days have been a little chilly here in South Australia (hard to imagine in February but it is true!) and it always make me feel more like warm breakfast, so the Goodness Superfoods Quick Barley + Oats have been perfect. Being short of time is no excuse for skipping breakfast, the Quick Oats are ready in a flash and are super healthy as they contain both traditional Oats and Barley flakes. They leave you feeling full for a long time so you are much less likely to fall for the 10 am snack trap.
