All Bran 5 day challenge

My poor tummy suffers a lot with bloating so I am adopting a healthier lifestyle of late. Having the allotment makes things a bit easier as for a large portion of the year I have fresh fruit, veggies and herbs to cook from scratch with. For the rest of the time and the days when I can't be bothered much I like to make sure I'm eating something convenient that is also filling.

I saw the Brit Mum's Real Mums of All-Bran 5 Day Challenge and thought I'd give it a go. We always have All-Bran in the house. It is the only cereal that my 4 year will eat, no milk just a bowl of All-Bran and he calls it Jum-Bat which I think is a great word.

Also in the range is Golden Crunch, Red Berry Crunch and the new Chocolate Wheats flavours which I was too slow off the mark to get a trial of but we did go out and buy the first two - always keen to try new foods. 

The challenge is all about embracing our tummy's and trying All-Bran for 5 consecutive days to see how it made us feel.

Golden Crunch was my favourite although Red Berry Crunch was ok too and I alternated the two. Having them in the morning made me feel much less hungry by late morning. Normally I would be snacking on all sorts by 11am but a bowl of cereal rather than toast kept the hunger away. By the end of the 5 days, do I feel less bloated....I think so. Certainly I've not had any pains for a while so maybe this has helped.

I used to suffer with bloating and it turns out I was eating too MUCH fibre! So I've had to cut back on things like this. Sometimes being healthy has its drawbacks! :)

Hope you start to feel better soon.
