A couple of weeks ago I had a meeting with a Business Development Adviser who set me straight – in a very gentle way – on a few things.
Back in November I stopped posting on my blog instead concentrating on my Instagram page. I haven’t posted any new recipes for quite a while either. I decided that I wanted to focus more on promoting my granola and I don’t have the energy to do both. So Breakfast&ME granola became my priority.
The thing is though Breakfast&ME granola is only in existence because of the things that I talk about in my blog and is an extension of the breakfast recipes that I have created.
Breakfast&ME came about because so many aspects of having CFS/ME needed me to change my diet. I went looking for ways that having a good breakfast could keep me going with even energy levels. I wanted to be able to do activity throughout the morning rather than only feeling confident of steady energy and blood sugars in the hour straight after breakfast.
I think that somewhere along the way I had forgotten this. I had forgotten that I wanted the website to be a source of information for people trying to negotiate an understanding of CFS/ME. That I wanted my blog posts to maybe shed a bit of light on certain aspects of CFS/ME. And that my breakfast recipes are there for people who want a good breakfast without using loads of energy making it or spending lots of money buying unusual ingredients.
Breakfast&ME granola is part of a bigger picture for me. It’s a product that I’ve developed alongside the breakfast recipes. My customers enjoy it and come back for more. I know that it keeps my energy levels and blood sugars stable and I’m very proud of how far I’ve come with it in the past 9 months.
It’s important that Breakfast&ME evolves as a whole package. So somehow I need to find a way to balance all 3 aspects of Breakfast&ME. My blog, my recipes and my granola. Starting with a new recipe today and this blog post.
