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.
