Shake up Your Morning Routine

We've fallen into a breakfast rut... Every morning, we're running late for school and my kids eat a quick bowl of cereal or toast. I'm not proud of this. I don't know how we got on this path, but this spring I'm determined to shake things up have healthier breakfast options.

I'm going to pay more attention at the store and come home with better breakfast items. And I'll work on organizing my time so I have the ability to cook a quality meal.

Sadly, we are still going to need "fast" options. And we need our breakfasts to include more protein and produce. If you've been reading this blog for some time, you know that I'm a fan of making nut butters and milks.

What I didn't know is that some of my favorite "milks" now contain fruit and more protein - like a ready made smoothie. Fast, nutritious and tasty...

Silk is one of those products and they are now making Silk Fruit & Protein which comes in three great flavors: Mixed Berry, Mango Peach, and Strawberry Banana. To be honest, working with Social Moms is the first time I had heard of the product. I have never seen this in our stores, or in advertising. The flavors sound delicious, and my kids would love the mixed berry flavor.

You can find Silk Fruit & Protein in the aisle near juices (click here to find it in a store near you,) but it's a little different than juice. It contains protein, vitamin D and Calcium. You could substitute it for juice, blend it into your morning smoothies, or even take it on the go.

There are mornings when I have run out the door with just an orange. Whole food? Sure, but not a complete meal. It would be better to pour a mug of Silk Fruit & Protein to take in the car.

And on the days when my kids are "too sick for school - wink, wink" and won't eat anything for breakfast, they are always willing to drink some juice. So I'd feel better knowing they went off to school with some protein in their bellies.

It's nice to have options. I'm going to work harder on getting more complete breakfasts on the table, and for the days when that doesn't work out (and there WILL be those days...) then I'd feel better having something like Silk Fruit & Protein in the refrigerator to offer a quick and healthy alternative to juice, toast, or nothing at all.

I don't know why it took an email from Social Moms for me to hear about this product or even know something like it existed, but you don't have to be in the dark. You can like Silk Fruit & Protein on Facebook to stay up to date.

You can even get a $1 off coupon to save on your next purchase of Silk Fruit & Protein.

I hope your breakfasts are healthy and enjoyable. If you have any quick tips you'd like to share, feel free to leave a comment below. I am always open to new ideas.
