I have partnered with belVita and Dannon to help promote the belVita and Dannon partnership. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program, which includes writing about the promotion and product. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
It's really tempting to skip breakfast sometimes.
I'm just admitting the truth.
Waking up, dressing two wiggly little girls, getting them fed and to the bus stop on time sometimes take all of my pre-coffee functionality. Often, I'm under pressure to leave right from Chica's bus stop to drive the 30 minutes to take Bug to preschool.
Sure, I'd love to be the woman who wakes up with her hair perfectly styled, a rosy glow to her cheeks, donning a (matching) unwrinkled outfit. Of course I'd love to be the mom who juggles ingredients like a magician, throwing eggs, milk, flour and the like into various mixing bowls and pots and pans, completing a well-rounded hot breakfast (all with a smile on my face).
But this is reality, people.
Every morning is a time crunch.
So I'm all about breakfast on-the-go. Especially when they are healthy breakfasts on-the-go, like the perfect pairing of belVita Breakfast Biscuits and Dannon Oikos Greek Yogurt. With 12 grams of protein from the yogurt and a steady energy from all of the wholesome ingredients from the biscuits, it's not only a breakfast on-the-go: it's a smart choice every morning.
|It's hard to remember this is BREAKFAST and not DESSERT...|
belVita biscuits come in Blueberry, Golden Oat, Cinnamon Brown Sugar, Chocolate and Apple Cinnamon. I'm a sucker for anything Cinnamon Brown Sugar, and it's hard to remember that the belVita biscuits are a healthy breakfast (and not a sinful treat!).
Dannon Oikos Yogurt offers a variety of fruit flavors, such as peach, pineapple, blueberry and more. My favorite aspect of this pairing? The perfect juxtaposition of creamy and crunchy. It appeals to all of my senses!
Since I'm about the last person to tell you how to make your morning productive, I will take every tip I can get to make my mornings all that much easier. Laura Stack, The Productivity Pro, has joined the initiative to provide tips on how you can get the most out of your morning:
-The secret to a smooth, sane morning is doing as much as you can the night before. Leave as little preparation as possible until the last minute – you’ll thank yourself in the morning.
- Spend twenty minutes at the end of each day planning your to-do list. When you download the next day’s activities beforehand, you can devote your morning to enjoyment rather than stress.
- Be sure to start your morning with a delicious, balanced breakfast. Together, the nutritious steady energy of belVita and 12 grams of protein in Dannon Oikos Greek nonfat yogurt** along with a piece of fruit will help you get more out of your morning.
|The perfect pair!|
I know that starting my day with a solid breakfast is a great way to start the day (which is why I love the ease of belVita breakfast biscuits and Dannon Oikos Greek Nonfat Yogurt). But it never occurred to me to end my day planning for the next. I bet 20 minutes of quick planning each evening would seriously change my mornings! I'm trying it tomorrow!
