Like all mom's I am a busy and never seem to get a decent breakfast. I end up starving and in desperate need of a breakfast snack. Problem is I'm too busy making food for everyone else to make it for myself. I'm luck if I can grab a pop tart let alone some wholesome food. There has to be a solution to my empty stomach! I decided to stock up on some snacks on the last grocery trip.
I walked down the grocery isle pondering what to get, has to taste good, be good for me, and help me have energy. I went with something I recognized and I grabbed some Quaker Soft Baked Bar and thought why not give it a try. They had two flavors Banana Nut Bread and Pecan Bread. Fibers, Protein, B-Vitamins, and calories seem like a great boost for me to get through until nap and lunch.
I personally love Banana Nut Bread and can't wait to test them out next week. Sadly, after looking at the box I fear that I will have to get more and give them to the kids as well. All mom's know unless we disguise things that taste good in packages that resemble a spinach can chances our our yummy get through the day snack will be confiscated by the kids and husband and gone before we have a chance to enjoy them. When you run a daycare it's even worse as no matter how quickly I open and close the pantry door those kids have eagle eyes for anything new on the shelf and respond in an instant with, can I have some of that in the new box? Hopefully, I'll get up early so I can heat this up or just savor it with a cup of Chai tea in the morning for a stolen 5 minutes of piece.
What great snacks have you found? Where/When do you steal your 5 minutes of silence during the day?
