BelVita Breakfast Bites - great for breakfast on the go


i’m NOT a morning person.

so getting out the door to school in the mornings can often be the biggest hurdle of our day. i usually hit snooze 5 times before i finally get out of bed… which leaves us about 30 minutes from getting out of bed to getting out the door. on top of that, inevitably someone will loose a shoe, hate their hairdo, have a bunchy sock that HAS to be fixed, can’t find their homework, and/or just decided to be the slowest moving child in the world that day. sound familiar?

finding ways to make our family’s mornings run smoother has been a quest of mine all year and we are finally in our groove! every morning i hit snooze confidently knowing that we will have a great morning because i am prepared! here are a few of our tricks to make your morning run smoother…

lay out clothes the night before
i’m not sure i have ever been able to pick out an outfit my daughter just looks at and says ‘ok mom. i’ll wear that.’ a good 5 minutes of back and forth decision making, often coupled with frustration over that one essential thing she just HAD to wear that is sitting in the laundry bin, and finally we can come up with something agreeable. doing this the night before is at LEAST one more snooze button for me! #winning

my kiddos are little so they only pack snacks and not an actual lunch for school so i get off easy on this one. realizing that making a lunch will equal about two snooze buttons, i’m sure i will make this the night before when the time comes as well!

check the weather
weather is my nemesis. i am pretty much always late on rainy days. the sheer amount of gear to get two kids who hate getting a drop of rain on them is enough to drive a person mad. boots. hats. umbrellas. the battle over how cold it is and how much gear they need to wear…. it’s never ending! i try to check the weather the night before and give them plenty of heads up about the fact that they will have to wear a coat tomorrow. it’s probably not a full snooze button but definitely saves me a full blown headache. again… #winning

i have wised up about this one – easy on the go breakfast ideas are my best friend. i do make ahead egg sandwiches, muffins, overnight oats, and make ahead smoothies. so when we are running behind we can all eat them really quick… BUT i don’t always have those handy. i recently discovered belVita breakfast bites and i’m pretty sure they save me 1-2 snooze buttons a day! our whole family enjoys them – the girls love the chocolate flavor and the boys love the mixed berry. they are nutritious and contain slow release carbs from wholesome grains that keep me and my kids fueled for 4 hours. they have 20g of whole grain and NO high fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oil, artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners! i love that i can grab something healthy and filling for myself & my kids on our crazy mornings! i often have make ahead smoothies and these two combined are the perfect balanced breakfast!
