Yogurt has always been a staple breakfast for me. As a high protein, healthy option I can usually be found at my desk in the morning with a few spoonfuls of greek yogurt, topped with raspberries, granola and a drizzle of honey. Because I eat it most days, I always buy the giant tubs as they are great value, and Lancashire Farm Dairies has always been a brand that I gravitate towards.
Lancashire Farm Dairies are a family run business based in Rochdale, so really local in the grand scheme of things. I have really started to be more aware of where my produce comes from and Rochdale means it hasn’t had to travel far to get to my local shop. Lancashire Farm Dairies have also made the decision to make their yogurt free range, meaning the welfare of the cows and the farmers comes first. Their ‘grazing guarantee’ also means that their cows are guaranteed to be out grazing in the fields for at least 150 days of the year, meaning they are free to roam around the fields for longer.
To celebrate going free range, Lancashire Farm Dairies sent me an interactive board game, to encourage me to vary my breakfast routine and show me that there is more to life than my yogurt, berries and granola combo! The game is simple. Roll the dice, choose a few cards, and the choice of yogurt type, topping and sauce is all chosen for me.
My destiny must be written in the stars as honey and granola came out first. This time though, chocolate was thrown into the mix instead of fruit. I was excited, put it that way.
I added some freeze dried strawberries as well, for a bit of colour, and it was so tasty. The high protein makes it a filling breakfast and the small sprinkle of chocolate chips makes it taste sweet and decadent, without too many extra calories.
The game really helped me try different things and I had never thought of adding so many different things to my morning yogurt. Apple sauce and chopped nuts is another, more unusual combination that I have been enjoying.
What would you choose?
