Pumpkin Spice Waffles with Walnuts

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups hot water
  • Bigelow® Pumpkin Spice Tea Bags
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Add cooled tea, beaten eggs, and oil. Stir to combine. Gently fold in the walnuts (if desired). Preheat the waffle maker. When hot, lightly brush the surfaces with oil, to prevent sticking. Place about ⅔ cup of batter onto the hot waffle maker. Close top and cook for approximately 2 minutes (most waffle makers have an indicator light which will let you know when the waffle is ready), or until waffle is cooked through and surfaces are crisp. Remove to a platter. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with butter and maple syrup.

5 Reasons To Rise And Shine To Breakfast (And Bigelow Tea!)

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Did someone say breakfast of champions? Because if that’s the case, then that could include just about anything as long as its coupled with a cup of Bigelow Tea, right?! No, but, really… Breakfast is such an important meal – a hearty breakfast gives you energy and fuel to get through your crazy busy day. Actually, some research even suggests that breakfast is linked to several health benefits, including weight management and improved mental performance. So, during National All-American Breakfast Month (and what’s more American than Bigelow Tea??), here are five reasons to rise and shine to a healthy meal.

Weight, weight, don’t tell me.

Many studies, in both adults and children, have shown that those who eat breakfast tend to weigh less than breakfast skippers. One theory suggests that eating a healthy breakfast can reduce hunger throughout the day. Less hunger may promote healthier food choices at other meals.

Healthy Breakfast = Possible Improved Mental Performance

Research involving adults and children has indicated that breakfast might enhance memory, attention, the speed of processing information, reasoning, creativity, learning, and verbal abilities. Plus, according to a study published in the journal Archives of Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine, eating breakfast may improve cognitive performance, test scores and achievement scores in students, especially in younger children. Start the school day off on the right foot with a vegetable omelet, whole-wheat toast and a cup of Bigelow Tea. After all, a study published in Psychopharmacology, suggests that tea may also lead to improved cognitive functioning, including better working memory.

Oats and tea, please! 

Research done by the Harvard School of Public Health suggests that people who skip breakfast gain weight, which can lead to diabetes as well as high cholesterol and blood pressure—all of which can raise your risk of heart disease. How about a heart-healthy bowl of Cinnamon Spice Oatmeal coupled with a mug of Bigelow Tea green tea? According to research done by the American Dietetic Association, green tea may also lower cholesterol levels.

Wake up, eat breakfast, drink tea, work out, repeat

In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN), people who ate breakfast were more physically active during the morning than those who didn’t. That might be because a temporary increase in blood sugar gave them more energy.

Turn that frown upside down

In addition to cognitive benefits, studies also report that those who eat breakfast start their day in a better mood. And we don’t know about you, but a cup of tea always puts us in a better mood! Bigelow’s black teas, like American BreakfastEnglish Teatime and Spiced Chai, have a boost of caffeine that will kick start your day. (Don’t forget: A cup of Bigelow American Breakfast has 50% More Caffeine in every tea bag!)

So, go on. Grab your breakfast of choice, a mug of tea, and get this day started. Because with Bigelow for breakfast, you can’t go wrong! What’s your favorite thing to eat with your morning tea? Tag #TeaProudly and share!

A Second Breakfast? Obviously A Good Choice – As Long As It’s With Bigelow Tea!

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Maybe you call it a second breakfast. Or a mid-morning snack. Or elevensies (well… maybe if you’re a Hobbit). Bigelow Tea calls it a must – because, let’s be honest, any breakfast means it’s the perfect time for tea. And no matter where you eat it – at work, at home, in the car, after a grueling workout, at school – tea is great with ANY (and all!) breakfast at any time of the day!

Apparently, a second breakfast is becoming trendier than people ever imagined. And, according to research, it may even help people lose weight. A study conducted by researchers at Yale and the University of Connecticut suggests that eating a smaller meal to jump-start your metabolism followed by a slightly larger meal an hour or two later can keep you full for longer and help prevent overeating throughout the rest of the day. Who knew?! And if you’re like 94% of Americans, you’re already snacking at least once a day, so why not make it a second breakfast?

Looking for a few ideas that are quick and easy, and, well, pretty darn delicious? Easy. You can never go wrong with a piece of avocado toast, or toast with nut butter and fruit (Elvis was a huge fan of peanut butter and banana). Another option that requires just a few minutes the night before is overnight oats. Grab a mason jar and throw some steel-cut oats, milk or yogurt, chopped fruits, nuts, seeds, spices or any other favorite ingredient, shake, shake, shake, and let it sit in the fridge overnight. And, heck, you can never go wrong with some Greek yogurt. Don’t forget a spoon! Another option is to meal prep on the weekend… like making a batch of these fabulous Caramel Apple Crunch Muffins – they’ll last you all week! You know what goes great with any and all of these ideas? A nice, tall mug of Bigelow Tea. Drink up!

Noshing, munching, nibbling – whatever you want to call it, here’s to a delicious second breakfast! Tag #TeaProudly and share your morning go-to.

Rise And Shine, It’s Breakfast Time! 6 Bigelow Tea Tips For Your Morning Motivation!!

Wednesday, February 15th, 2017

bigelow tea scone and mug

Whether you know it as breakfast, brekkie, or “grabbing-this-to-go-because-I-was-late-five-minutes-ago!,” the first meal of the day is pretty darn awesome. The word breakfast literally means to break the fasting period of the prior night. And, during National Hot Breakfast Month, we think nothing pairs with that all-important meal like a hot cup of Bigelow Tea. So, in celebration of breakfast and its lovers, here are some fun facts…

  1. Did you know that the average starting time for breakfast in the U.S. is 8:12 a.m.? (Would you agree or are you still pressing snooze at that time?)
  2. The most popular place to eat breakfast is at home at the table, followed by the couch. There’s nothing like enjoying eggs with a side of morning news, right?!
  3. In the United States, breakfast is the most frequently skipped meal. Actually, about 10% of the U.S. population opt out of breakfast! (Now this one was a bit surprising. Who doesn’t enjoy the deliciousness of a fresh-cooked breakfast like Orange and Spice Belgian Waffles or Caramel Glazed Coffee Cake??)
  4. Hot breakfast food (Eggs! Waffles! Pancakes! Cinnamon buns! Banana bread! BACON!) is surprisingly a recent-ish invention. The concept didn’t really exist in the U.S. until the mid- to late-1800s, according to Abigail Carroll, food historian and author of Three Squares: The Invention of the American Meal. Apparently, people preferred to eat food that looked a lot like dinner or a snack—cheese and bread, or leftovers. So, if you’re having leftover pizza, you’re just being traditional.bigelow tea cinnamon bun
  5. Looking for the best breakfast choice? Aim for fiber and protein. To get the most vitamins and minerals in the morning, the Mayo Clinic recommends eating a breakfast made up of whole grains, lean protein, and fruits and vegetables. Consider foods like oatmeal, eggs or peanut butter. Looking for yummy recipes? Try making Miniature Vegetable Quiches or Cinnamon Spice Oatmeal.
  6. Prefer a dish that’s a bit sweeter? We don’t blame ya. And, frankly, eating a sugary treat in the morning (Those Vanilla Chai Tea Infused Cinnamon Rolls are looking yummier and yummier) may help curb sweet tooth cravings later in the day, according to some research.

Of course, we recommend a cup of tea to go with your starting meal. Not only can it enhance the flavors of your breakfast, it’s the perfect morning ritual—energize with a cup of English Breakfast or simply start your day off with your favorite flavor. Regardless of what you sip with breakfast, we want to hear about it. Tea early and #TeaProudly—which is your favorite breakfast tea go-to?

Being proud tea drinkers makes us all about choosing healthy choices. And that includes grabbing an eye-opening morning meal that will make you want to be rid of the snooze button once and for all.

Chowing down on breakfast offers your body all sorts of amazing benefits. Did you know that people who eat breakfast generally weigh less?

One study from the Harvard School of Public Health even suggests that not eating breakfast can lead to weight gain, diabetes, as well as high cholesterol and blood pressure. Not convinced yet that breakfast is the best? How about if we told you that breakfast also fuels your brain — kind of important if you’re heading to the office or school!

Kick Start Your Day with Bigelow English Breakfast Tea

Wednesday, September 14th, 2016

bigelow-tea-english-breakfast-teaThere’s nothing better than waking up to a whistling kettle of Bigelow English Breakfast tea where we use only the finest hand-picked black tea leaves from high elevations to create this iconic blend. The end result is a full-bodied, smooth cup of tea that can stand up to milk and sugar or be enjoyed simply on its own!

For many, English Breakfast is a staple in many households and restaurants all over the world, so where exactly did the name “English Breakfast” actually come from? One would assume it bigelow-tea-english-breakfast-black-teacame from England, but it actually traces back, some say, to Colonial times in America. We love that as Bigelow Tea itself is a third-generation, family-owned American company!

With such a long history, it’s no wonder English Breakfast has a passionate fan following! Facebook fans Vicki Erskine LangstaffPatricia Kay Buente Weigand, and Debbie Berenz all say Bigelow English Breakfast is their favorite blend. Victor from Texas even switched his 2-3 cups of morning coffee for one cup of Bigelow English Breakfast!

Begin Your Day With Breakfast And Bigelow Tea

Friday, September 9th, 2016

bigelow tea recipe
Often described as the most important meal of the day, a hearty breakfast gives you energy and fuel to get through your to-do list. And what better way to begin the day than with a well-balanced meal and a mug of Bigelow Tea? In fact, research suggests that breakfast is linked to several health benefits, including weight control and improved mental performance. Here are a few reasons to rise and shine to a healthy meal.

It may help keep your weight down

Many studies, in both adults and children, have shown that those who eat breakfast tend to weigh less than breakfast skippers. One theory suggests that eating a healthy breakfast can reduce hunger throughout the day, thus promoting healthier food choices at other meals.

Eating breakfast might improve your mental performance

Having breakfast may lower cholesterol levels

Research done by the Harvard School of Public Health suggests that people who skip breakfast gain weight, which can lead to diabetes as well as high cholesterol and blood pressure—all of which can raise your risk of heart disease. May we suggest a bowl of oatmeal coupled with a mug of Bigelow Tea green tea? According to research done by the American Dietetic Association, green tea may also lower cholesterol levels.

Breakfast may help give you strength and endurance

In a study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition (AJCN), people who ate breakfast were more physically active during the morning than those who didn’t. That might be because a temporary increase in blood sugar gave them more energy.
