Great Harvest Pocatello challenges customers to eat better for September’s Breakfast Month! The most important meal of the day may have gotten even more important. For the about 30 percent of Americans that skip breakfast on a routine basis, missing their morning meal could result in cardiovascular disease later in life. In addition, breakfast-skippers are more susceptible to obesity as a result of frequent day-snacking, poor nutrition and high blood sugar. The challenge will take place during store hours at Great Harvest Bread of Pocatello, 7am-6pm M-F and 9am-3pm Saturday. Customers can order their better breakfast, which includes a custom-built breakfast sandwich, made to order with any bread or biscuit, choice of bacon or ham, any cheese with egg and garlic herb spread. Breakfast sandwiches are made with no artificial preservatives and breads are crafted with five simple, all-natural, ingredients: water, salt, honey, yeast and fresh-milled flour. If customers don’t agree that they are eating the best-tasting healthy breakfast sandwich around, they will receive their money back. Customers who post photos of their experience with Great Harvest Bread on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with the #BetterBreakfast hashtag will be entered to win one of five $100 gift cards, good at any Great Harvest Bread location in the country.
