A Commuter's Dream Breakfast | Quaker Breakfast Shakes #QuakerShakes #sp

This post was created in partnership with Quaker. All thoughts and opinions are my own.



Hi lovelies!  I must admit, this review is one of my favorites because it is a life-changer for me.  Mornings are my own personal hell.  Waking up the kiddos, getting them fed/dressed/ready for school all while attempting to do the same for myself should seriously be an Olympic sport.  Oh and I have an hour and a half (each way) commute to work.  I try to be proactive and pack lunches the night before and keep them in the fridge, pick out our clothes the night before, as well as shower/tubs.  But the truth be told, we are not morning people.  I think the three of us would sleep in until 10 every morning if we could.  So when I was approached to review Quaker Breakfast Shakes, I giddily agreed.






They are available in three flavors: Chocolate, Vanilla, and Strawberry and are available at Walmart!  Each bottle contains 8g of whole grain oats, 10g of protein and 6g of fiber.  The bottle is only 200 calories too!  I was sent a strawberry and chocolate shake to review, and they are delicious!  You'd think you were drinking a shake, like the kind that aren't so good for you.  My daughter loved these too; I had to share them both with her and we have bought more too.

Now the life-changing part.  I'd normally skip breakfast, just because my morning schedule/routine really doesn't allow for it.  I'd drink gallons of coffee at home and on the way to work, but wouldn't eat anything.  Now I grab one of these out of the fridge when I grab my lunch, toss it in my bag and head out the door.  During my lovely, gridlock commute I sip on a shake and by the time I get to the office I am full.  Like, not hungry at all.  I make it to lunch without snacking.  I find I have so much more energy, my overall mood is markedly improved, and I'm friggen getting some nutrition in the morning.  Done and done.

Now for you, my lovely readers.  Quaker is generously offering $2 off coupons!  


Oh, but wait, there's more!  Quaker and Walmart are also giving one lucky SnS reader a $25 Walmart gift card!  Buy loads of shakes, or whatever else you need!

  3. I manage busy mornings by trying to do things ahead of time like laying out clothes, or putting what I need to take with me on the kitchen counter next to the door ready to go. I also manage busy mornings by grabbing something quick to eat like a breakfast bar that I can eat on the go.
