Go! Go! Hurry up!
Get your backpack!
Did you brush your teeth? Where’s your reading folder?
No, there’s no time – you’ll just have to buy your lunch.
Ack! Ew! Get me a burp cloth, please! Please?!
Okay, let’s go.
Oh My Gosh, don’t slam the door!!!
Anyone else have mornings that sound like this? I do – pretty much every day.
And lately, making sure Annalyn (and I) get a decent breakfast before diving headfirst into the day is more difficult than ever. (I don’t want to blame the baby, but…well…it’s kind of because of the baby…)
When I was pregnant, all I wanted – all I could STAND – was a plain bagel loaded with plain cream cheese. But now that I’m starting to want to eat a bit healthier, I need to find another breakfast solution. Plus, Annalyn is just sick of the bagel routine.
In my fantasy world (the one where I get up early and cross things off my to-do list and generally have it together), I’d scramble some eggs and serve them up with some turkey sausage. Or I’d make and freeze smoothies or breakfast sandwiches in advance, providing a healthy, convenient breakfast for my family.
In the real world? I’m doing good to shake some dry cereal into a bowl and toss my daughter a yogurt tube.
Enter Quaker Breakfast Shakes.
When Quaker contacted me about reviewing their shakes, I jumped on the offer. Because HELLO? A breakfast I can just grab out of the fridge and take with me? I’m ALL OVER THAT.
The Quaker Breakfast Shakes come in chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. I tried both the chocolate and the strawberry, and both were really good. They did taste a little oatmeal-y, but since I like oatmeal, I didn’t mind. And I knew that meant Quaker means business when it says, “Whole Grain Goodness to Go!”
[In case you're wondering, each shake also has 10 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber.]
So, if your mornings look anything like mine and you want an easy, healthy breakfast option, try out Quaker Breakfast Shakes. You can even get a $2.00 off coupon to try them out the first time. Just click here!
