I am definitely not a morning person at all, but when Belvita’s PR team invited me for breakfast last week I decided to change my ways. I was intending to make an early start on the Wildfox sample sale that day so it only made sense to pop along and energize up my morning, along with the promise of a manicure by celebrity nail manicurist Trish Lomax.
I had never tried Belvita bars before so I was really looking forward to sampling them. As soon as I got to the press room at Hearst magazines they had a lovely smoothie bar awaiting. I opted for a Strawberry & Banana smoothie which was delicious and I felt like I was being extra healthy, which is pretty unusual for me!
Belvita have just launched their latest bar the Apricot & Live Yoghurt Duo Crunch, so I munched on one of those whilst chatting to the team. It was great to find out so much behind the making of the bars and the nutritional value that they have.
It’s proven that the bars release carbohydrates continuously over four hours when eaten as part of a balanced breakfast, so with an apple or latte. It gives you much more energy than the sugary Rice Krispie bars I’m normally munching, as they tend to give you a peak of energy that then brings you right back down. I am pretty lazy with breakfast so it’s good to find something that’s not bad for you and gives you that energy boost, plus actually tastes good.
It was then time for my manicure, I decided on the bright orange ‘Morgan Taylor:Colour Me Bold’, it was lovely speaking to Trish and finding out all about the amazing jobs she gets to do being a manicurist. My nails looked fab and also are still lasting!
I took some of the flavours away with me too, I have been loving the Honey & Oats biscuits as they have a sneaky Chocolate Chip in there!
