belVita and Oikos are my #MorningWin

I have partnered with belVita and Dannon to help promote the belVita and Dannon partnership. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program, which includes writing about the promotion and product. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. 

I'm a full time mom and wife who works outside of the home. Mornings with a four year old can be chaotic and stressful. I pick out cute clothes....said four year old comes in wearing camo, rain boots, and plaid. Some days we battle it out....other days I let him express whatever creative fashion style he's envisioned. 

There are some mornings that I simply cannot be Super Mom....Super Wife.... or super anything.... I'd love to fix scrambled eggs for my guys every morning, but it's not realistic. 

Thanks to the new partnership of Crunchy belVita breakfast biscuits and Dannon® Oikos® Greek nonfat yogurt, I can lose some of the "mommy/wife of the year" guilt! Breakfast can be quick and easy walking out the door on our busy mornings. 

belVita breakfast biscuits are made with delicious ingredients and carefully baked to give you steady energy all morning. They are available in five flavors (blueberry, golden oat, cinnamon brown sugar, chocolate, and apple cinnamon). I prefer the cinnamon brown sugar and golden oat. They are soooo good! 

Dannon Oikos is made with a traditional Greek straining process that not only provides exceptional taste, but also a creamy-thick consistency to satisfy your taste buds. It's also an excellent source of protein. It contains twice the amount of protein compared to regular lowfat yogurt. With 0% fat, active yogurt cultures, and 80 to 130 calories per 5.3 ounce serving, Dannon Oikos nonfat Greek yogurt is a fabulous way to begin your day! 

The most important start of our day is a healthy breakfast. When I skip breakfast, my weight loss slows dramatically. I get irritable and don't function as well at work. As busy as I am, I cannot afford to be sluggish and miserable!

Laura Stack, The Productivity Pro, has joined the initiation to provide tips on how you can get the most out of your mornings:

  • The secret to a smooth, sane morning is doing as much as you can the night before. Leave as little preparation as possible until the last minute - you'll thank yourself in the morning. 
  • Spend twenty minutes at the end of each day planning your to-do list. When you download the next day's activities beforehand, you can devote your morning to enjoyment rather than stress. 
  • Be sure to start your morning with a delicious, balanced breakfast. Together the nutritious steady energy of belVita and 12 grams of protein in Dannon Oikos Greek nonfat yogurt (along with a piece of fruit) will help you get more out of your morning. 

If I have extra time in the mornings, I use my Dannon Oikos Greek nonfat yogurt in a smoothie. Just add one container of your favorite flavor, half a can of crushed pineapple, and some ice in the blender. Mix it together, grab some belVita breakfast biscuits, and you have a great breakfast!
