All- Bran 5 day Challenge ~ From Glum To Happy Tummy !

Thanks to Britmums I was sent a selection of tasty cereals these were All Bran cereals this was part of a #realmumsAllBran challenge in association with Britmums. The varieties were Golden Crunch, Red Berry and new Chocolate Wheats.

The five-day challenge  is more than just about taste , it is also also about the feeling in our tummy as well . Did you know that 90  to 95 percent of the 'happy' hormone serotoin is made in the gut?. A study of 1,000 UK woman found that 52% experience digestive problems, such as a bloating and gas at least once a week. Eating fibre everyday is a remedy for this

Breakfast is as you already know the most important meal of the day , I have on many occasion skipped as I didn't see myself as a breakfast type of person but with this challenge it soon became part of my routine. And routine is very important, in being able to structure your day ,it enables hopefully for you to make the most of it.

The idea was to eat the cereal for 5 days and to see you noticed any difference obviously you wouldn't be having 3 bowls in a day ! Though I did have 2 in place of a otherwise unhealthy snack or perhaps in the evening whilst watching a movie * popcorn replacement

It was easy to get into a routine and now the routine is common place.

I even found a use for the left over bits of cereal that just sit at the bottom of the packet turning it into another breakfast meal.

I found that I had less bloating and I no longer have to undo the top button on my jeans and get some relief on my tummy ! And it is love for All-Bran now part of my daily breakfast and I am ready for what ever the world throws at me !
