I don’t know about you but as a mother of three kids my morning routine is a blur. It goes something like this: Get up and shower, wake up the kids that didn’t wake up on their own. Then while I’m trying to get ready constant shouts of don’t forget to brush your teeth, don’t forget to do this or do that. I stop getting ready to get my boys off to high school, then come back so my daughter and I can finish getting ready and get out the door to school and work.
During all that running around, shouting, and driving there is one thing (other than brushing your teeth) that I think is very important to starting your day off right and that is eating a good breakfast.
Cheers to Breakfast
I eat my breakfast at work. So once the kids are in school and I get to work I always take a little bit of time to start my day with something to keep my energy up. Without a healthy breakfast you are sure to crash or feel sluggish before lunch time. In fact, just last week I got so busy at work from the moment I stepped through the door that I almost forgot about my breakfast. An hour after my normal time I started feeling tired and out of energy and realized my error.
Our bodies need to be fueled in order to get through the day. We are a cereal eating family. At any given time we can have 3-6 boxes of cereal hanging around our pantry. While some of us eat our cereal with a bowl and milk…
Others, like my sons, prefer their breakfast to go. Since they like to get up with minutes to spare to get off to school they prefer to grab and go. The nice thing is almost all cereal is easy to make into an on the go breakfast.
Now I love cereal, and I will get it for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I often have several different types because I love variety. However one thing that I do not prefer in variety is my orange juice. I am a 100% Florida Orange, No Pulp, Tropicana loving girl. I love a cold glass of OJ with my breakfast and feel that it is a great benefit to me since it is chalked full of vitamins.
An 8 oz glass of 100% Florida orange juice gives you 100% vitamin C to help you maintain a healthy immune system. Orange juice is one of the most nutrient-rich fruit juices commonly consumed in the United States – it provides a good source of potassium for heart health, the B vitamins thiamin and folate and is an excellent source of vitamin C.
