Seriously, mornings and I are not the best of friends. Especially in the winter. They come to early, it’s too dark, it’s too cold and I stayed up way too late binge watching an entire season on Netflix.
And I can’t even lie. Every time the alarm clock goes off (and I’m totally the person that has 5 of them set!) at the crack of dawn I think to myself, “Why does school have to start so early?!” And then I think, “I’ve already done my time of getting up early to go to school. I work from home! Why can’t I just sleep in?” And then I realize if I don’t get up to go get Joshua awake I will have to drive him. Which means I
would should have to even get out of my warm pj’s, out into the cold car and drive over to the school. Nope. That’s not happening – make it to the bus stop in time!
I don’t ask for much. I just want to sleep until the sun comes out! But whether or not I like it (or the sun is ready), mornings come. Same time. Every day. Shocking, I know.
One of my resolutions this year was to start making small changes that I could actually keep. And one of those changes is to actually eat breakfast! Before, one of two things would happen. One, I would just be tired and sluggish or two, later in the day I would be so starving I would run through the closest drive through that I passed. Oh or, three, I would open a bag of popcorn and just mindlessly much while working. None of the three are really any good.
But who has time for making eggs or pancakes first thing? Or more importantly, who wants to do that? Not me. I’ve got places to go and things to do. And it’s still dark outside.
My mom actually introduced me to belVita products a few months ago. We go to auctions a lot and you usually have to leave even earlier than you would to catch the middle school bus. Auctions are a lot of fun, but they are long. We’ve sometimes left at 6:30 in the morning and not gotten back until 9:00 at night! And the food options? Well, they usually have hot dogs?
Anyways, so my Mom always has packs of belVita biscuits in her purse. She loves the crunchy blueberry. And I’m (kind of) ashamed to say, I stole one out of her purse a while ago. (Hey, she had 2 packs!)
I was really surprised. One, they were good! Like really good! And two, they kept me full for a long time. It was something I really wasn’t expecting! So later that week while I was shopping at Meijer, they were having a Sampling Event. The only ones that I had ever tried were the crunchy variety, so I was excited to try the soft baked kind.
There are a LOT of flavors! I love that! I seriously eat a pack of these once a day, so being able to change up the flavors is a must. I love the crunchy varieties, but after the tasting event I left with 4 boxes of the soft baked varieties! Banana bread, cinnamon, oats & chocolate, mixed berry…..all of them, so good.
belVita definitely helps me win my mornings and keep the rest of my day on track. For our resale business I am out either at auctions, picking up consignments or shopping for inventory. Breakfast biscuits help keep me full and energized to tackle my day. I even keep a few packs in my glove box in case I need a snack or I forget to grab breakfast before I leave the house. belVita is the perfect solution for busy families!
Next time you are at Meijer pick up a few boxes! Whether you are getting mixed berry for yourself or the chocolate for your kids as a grab and go breakfast, you won’t be disappointed! belVita Morning Win can be your morning win too!
