With my side of the family living in Newfoundland, there are no quick trips to Grandmas house. Over the past two weeks Sam and I have spent more than 45 hours in the car, making the trek. So worth it. So hectic! I love getting to be with family. I appreciate all the in-between connections technology affords but theres nothing like real face time.
Were back home now and Im so glad for some down time before the back-to-school push begins. Once August hits it seems like there are only a couple of weeks of summer left. School prep takes up a lot of the end-of-the-season at our house. Im trying to push those thoughts away but Im already thinking about it!
One of the things thats been on my mind is how to convince Sam that hes hungry first thing in the morningbecause he usually isnt. And neither am I. During summer break that isnt an issue but when were trying to get out the door during school season, it is. So Ive been looking for ideas. I found something new and it looks like it could make a difference in our morning routine. Theres been nothing like this before. Its a granola, fruit and yogurt combo, all in a single serve cup and its shelf-stable. That means you can keep it in the cupboard, a lunchbox or a backpack. When youre ready to nosh, just add cold milk, stir and eat! Crunchy. Cool. Yum. Its Quaker® Real Medleys® Yogurt Cups.
When I saw the Quakers Real Medley at Walmart, it caught my attention. I really like the convenience of this idea for on-the-go breakfasts and snacks. Since were not usually big breakfast eaters, products like this that can travel with you and wait until you really want it are awesome. Even with just a half cup of skim milk added, youve got a satisfying and delicious breakfast that contains 25 grams of whole grains and 10 grams of protein. There are three flavor combinations: Apple Cinnamon, Raspberry Pecan and Strawberry Almond.
By mid-morning Im ready for an extra shot of energy (hmm part of the no-morning appetite syndrome?). A few bites of this yogurt and a few bites of my Double Chocolate Mango Banana Bread sound like a great pick-me-up!
