No one in my house is a morning person. Getting everyone out the door on time for school can be painful. Even though I’ve made it easier on myself by having things laid out the night before and making my boys responsible for getting themselves ready, it’s still an agonizing process.
The last thing I have time for is to sit down and eat breakfast. Yet, if I don’t eat, I’ll get crabby. And then after dropping off my boys at school, I’ll pull into one of the many drive-thrus on the way home and grab a pastry or a bagel or a chicken biscuit. Not so bad if it’s an occasional treat but having it be a regular thing isn’t good for my wallet or my waistline(it would work against the progress I’ve been making lately).
I need something that I can consume while I’m walking around the house, prodding my kids into getting ready, or take with me when I drive them to school. And it has to be filling or I’ll still want to hit a drive-thru!
Quaker Breakfast Shakes http://bit.ly/1cSke6n have been a good solution for me. They come in chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. The strawberry is my favorite, followed by the vanilla. I haven’t tried the chocolate because I don’t like any chocolate liquids. But the consistency of the other two make me think that if you do like chocolate, you’ll like this shake, too.
With 8g of whole grain, 10g of protein, and 6g of fiber, these shakes are yummy, easy, and filling, allowing me to get everyone out the door on time for school and still have breakfast!
