Let's get Nakd - giveaway!

Who wants freebies? :D



I don't want to give these babies away!

The awesome Natural Balance Foods guys sent me a big goodie box so I could try out their products - I'm still working through it but have loved everything I've tried so far, especially the Cocoa Orange Gluten Free bar! They were also kind enough to add in three goodie bags containing one of each of the 4 flavours of gluten free bars so some of you guys can try them for free too!



They make a fantastic, healthy snack - they are all natural, no added sugar, gluten, wheat, dairy & GM free, 3 of the bars are also 100% raw (the cocoa orange is 95% raw), the ingredients lists consist of fruit, nuts, cocoa and... that's all! Plus they are made right here in the UK - in Wales. Most importantly - they taste damn good!

All you have to do to be in with a chance to win some of your own is leave a comment on this post telling me your favourite porridge toppings (or other breakfast if you're not a porridge lover!) - I need some inspiration!

I'll leave the competition open until Sunday then I will pick three winners at random - either using the names in a hat or random number generator method.

Good luck!!

(and I'm sorry but UK and Ireland readers only due to postage)

Oh and while I've got your attention! If you would like to sponsor me through Just Giving to run the 5k at the end of the month you can do so HERE! All donations go straight to Chest, Heart & Stroke Scotland

  1. I love banana, walnuts and maple syrup (just a bit) on my porridge :o)

  2. I'm a die hard bran flakes or shreddies girl - porridge is too "wet" for my liking. I love banana and sometimes chuck some seeds on too.

    Sometimes I forego the milk, crush up some bran flakes and mix them with yoghurt and chopped apple. SO filling - I can quite easily forget I need lunch until 2 or 3pm!

  3. The porridge has to have banana cooked in it, toppings are usually shredded coconut, flaked almonds, dried cranberries, grape nuts or cheerios. Once a week I throw a teaspoon of dark chocolate chips on there too. That's my favourite day of the week ;)

  4. porridge topped with a little of my homemade peanut butter granola...............

  5. My favourite porridge topping is a big dollop of Greek yoghurt, maple syrup, chopped dates and pecans.

    My favourite porridge combination though is my mocha porridge - made with raw cacao and instant coffee - yum!

  6. Nice giveaway! I was actually thinking of topping my porrige with a crumbled up gingerbread nakd bar yesterday but I didn't in the end cause my bowl ended up a bit bigger than expected and I didn't think I'd manage it all but I think that would be really nice!

    Oh this sounds really nice! I do love bran flakes so might just have to try the yogurt and apple combination (with cinnamon!)

    That sounds great! I've still got some of my last batch of granola but when that's done I quite fancy some more with peanut butter!

    I have thought about that - I used a crumbled up chocolate fudge baby in porridge before and that was delicious!

    have you tried cashews (not the roasted salted ones!) and honey on your porridge? it's yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Raisins & Cinnamon for me any day!

    Or - if I'm not in a porridge mood, natural yoghurt with almonds, golgi berries & a smidge of honey

    ReplyDelete
  13. Grated apple and cinnemon. Lush.

  14. For me its blueberries stirred in with the porridge, flaked almonds and vanilla protein powder plus a whacking great spoon ful of cinnamon. On the days when I need 'comfort' golden syrup or agave syrup, flaked almonds and banana :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Blueberries with just one large spoon of Milo is yummy. Also if you find those big blocks of dark Lindt, that have nice big pieces, just put one single piece into hot porridge and it melts through, yummy without huge amounts of calories.

    If you don't like chocolate, a little bit of single cream and raisins with cinnamon is good (have to be cautious on the cream of course).

    I also once made some caramelised oranges (just pour hot sugar & water mixture over segments), which I put in porridge next day, nice and sweet.

    holland and barrett also sell a "mince meat" mixture, which is basically spiced raisins, that's nice on porridge, you dont' need much as very very sweet.

  16. I usually have either blueberries, blackberries or raspberries, with some mixed seeds (inc hemp), flaked almonds, a little dried fruit - all topped with fromage frais:

    OR

    A banana, some pecans, a little tropical dried fruit - all topped with probiotic yoghurt.

  17. I blend my oats so they are like Ready Brek! My favourited floavours are grated pear and cinnamon or almond milk, a scoop of chocolate whey and coconut or raspberry and coconut. I love porridge :D

    ReplyDelete
  18. dessicated coconut with some options chocolate powder - lot calorie and tastes just like a bounty bar :) xx

    I haven't actually, walnuts and almonds I have but not cashews, can imagine they'd be a really nice texture when warm

  20. StellaDoesHealthyEating8 April 2010 at 15:08

    Oh my god! I want to go make some of that right now! Good thing I don't have any coconut!

  22. I am a porridge fan!

    I add wheatbran, ground mixed seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, flax adn sesame), brown sugar, honey, or maple syrup and either chopped dried fruit (figs or apricots or prunes or dates), or banana or berries (raspberries or bluberries usually). I make it with half water half milk (skimmed, rice or soy).

    Its pretty hearty but a great start to a busy day! :-)

  23. My favourite at the moment is porridge with a dollop of raspberry jam and a banana.
    Feels a bit like baby food but it's great for some exercise energy!

  24. My fav at the momnet is porridge topped with raspberries and a sprinkling of flaked almonds. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Breakfast heaven!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Good old nuts and berries!

    Or a spoonful of brown sugar if feeling naughty...mmmm!!

    That chocolate and coconut sounds yummy, must try that!

    ReplyDelete
  26. my fav topping has to be honey and raisins! honey and blueberries is good too.. honey and anything lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. For my porridge I always chop a banana through it, or dice an apple with a little cinamon - little predictable but filling.

    But of late I am loving a bowl with alpen sugar free in a bowl (dry) with 0% Fage greek yoghurt spooned over & a healthy handful of fresh raspberries & blueberrys (or whatever berries you have to hand) thrown in - keeps me full for hours & hours!! Nom nom!!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Some of these ideas sound lovely but I'm very old skool - I just cook some sultanas up with the porridge so that they go all plump and juicy when warm (nicer than just lobbing them on top). Lately I've tried stirring a little almond butter in too if it's runny enough in the jar, but I don't always do that.

  29. I'm addicted to porridge mixed with a scoop of whey protein (I alternate chocolate, vanilla, strawberry or cookies & cream) mixed with blueberries and topped with either flaked almonds or pecans. In fact.... I have the empty bowl sat next to me right now num num x

  30. Well I just made some porridge the other day with tinned apples and caramel spread and made me very happy indeed :D
