NOW CLOSED! Win a Breakfast Hamper from #WakeUpToOrganic


Fancy winning something delicious? Read on...

Morning all! This post is going out bright and early at 6am to catch you morning larks with something truly wonderful. You know that first meal of the day (breakfast, brekkie, le petit déjeuner etc)? I want to know - what do you eat? Is it porridge with almond milk and lashings of beautiful honey; a cheeky bacon buttie rich with butter and ketchup;  a full-on fry up with sweet beans, hash browns, mushrooms and fried eggs; or my favourite, avocado toast served simply on sourdough? And further to that, which ingredients do you pick? Do you prioritize price over provenance? Is organic important to you? Do you plan something special for the weekend or simply pick up what you fancy on the day? I'm nosy - please share! 
Nosiness aside, this is also your chance to win a fabulous breakfast courtesy of Wake Up To Organic day on 14th June. The a national event will celebrate the beauty of organic food and support local independent shops and cafes. Stores and cafes across London will be hosting events to raise awareness about the benefits of organic food, and how easy it can be to make the switch to organic - there's even free classes and giveaways going on!
