This post was created in partnership with Quaker. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Here’s how my mornings normally happen:
6:55 – Alarm goes off. Try to come up with some reason why I’ll die if I get up.
7:10 – Arrive at desk after super slow Zombie walk.
10:00 – Finish working hard for the money. Get Wyatt’s breakfast ready.
10:05 – Wake Wyatt up with a song and dance. No really, I do. You should see me jig.
10:15 – Realize I’m starving. Hulk-smash around the house. Stuff some pretzels in my mouth to tame the beast.
As you can see, I’m a terrible breakfast-eater. I always have been. First, I hate eating when I first wake up. Hate.It. I also hate getting the kitchen dirty first thing in the morning. Hate.It. The problem with that? If I don’t eat early, I just tend not to eat breakfast at all. Blood sugar goes nuts. Hulk-smashing commences.
So when the chance to try Quaker’s new breakfast shakes came up, I jumped at it. Just grab one out of the fridge? Drink it? No Hulk-smashing? Sounds like a plan!
Here’s what I thought about the shakes
I took the chocolate shake for a test-drive. I’ll be honest and say I was nervous about the first sip. Was it going to taste fake? Chalky? Too sweet? Nope, none of those. Really, it was like drinking a creamy glass of chocolate milk for breakfast. I’m not going to complain about that.
On the are occasions I do make myself breakfast, it never fails, I get 10 phone calls in a row. Have you ever tried to answer a call with a mouth full of peanut butter toast? It’s not happening. But I was totally sipping away on my breakfast shake while I was on calls. I enjoy multitasking.
Each shake is made with whole grain oats (blended to smooth perfection by magic, I assume) and contains 8g of whole grain, 10g of protein, and 6g of fiber. That’s a whole lot of goodness in a little, tasty package.
