Well, here we are. Back into the swing of things now that the holidays are over. I don’t know about you, but I feel like our family has a harder time getting back into the school routines after winter break than we do after summer break. I am not really sure what the deal is but to be honest, our mornings are stressful, rushed and not fun. Thank you to Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics for sponsoring this post and helping us get it together in the mornings!
Like most of you, I made some goals for the whole family to work on in the New Year. One of those goals is making breakfast time more enjoyable. Sure, that means better meal options and recipes but also the time spent at home before school and work. I would love for that 90 minutes to not be filled with yelling and whining! To tackle that goal, I decided we had to change up our breakfast routine.
New, Year, New Breakfast – Breakfast Toasts & Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics
I struggle in the morning, mostly because I would love for school to start at 9am rather than 8am – man that extra hour would be amazing. The mornings just seem so rushed, even on a good day but the fact is, part of that is my fault. Why do I plan our lunches and dinners but totally wing our breakfast meal plans? DUMB! Goal number 2 for the New Year – Plan ALL meals.
So, how am I tackling this? Creating new recipes to serve my family that are not full of processed junk and adding a great juice that my kids love and I am happy to serve them. Juice…yes juice! Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics juice to be exact. Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics juice is available in three delicious flavors that we all love: Strawberry Banana, Pineapple Mango and Peach Passion Fruit.
Why Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics?
I choose Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics juice for my family because not only do I trust the brand but my whole family loves the juice. Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics is a 100% juice with probiotics and no added sugar or artificial flavors. This is a juice that I am excited to serve my family every morning.
As a family that seems to be constantly dealing with those gut issues we are a family that believes in daily probiotics. Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics delivers one billion live and active cultures to your gut in every eight-ounce serving. Plus, each serving provides you with your whole day’s vitamin C. What a convenient way to start your day.
Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics is an accessible and nutritious way for all of us to get more probiotics into our daily routine. Like I said, we are firm believers in probiotics and welcome the deliciousness and convenience of this juice. Starting with the goodness of Tropicana fruit, Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics combines nutritious ingredients that make our healthy choices easy. Plus it brings probiotics to the mainstream juice aisle for the first time. A must try.
Delicious, Fast and Easy Breakfast Toasts
We have the juice covered for breakfast and now it is time to think about some nutritious and kid-friendly recipes that are simple for the morning rush. My kids love toast, but they get pretty tired of just toast with jelly, so I decided that I would try the trendy idea of Breakfast Toasts for the kids. Guess what? That trend was a hit in our house! YUM!
Berry and Cream Cheese Breakfast Toast
Ingredients:Whole grain bread – toasted
Strawberries – halved
1. Toast bread to your desired color.
2. Carefully spread a layer of cream cheese on the toast.
3. Add a few strawberry halves and blackberries to the cream cheese.
4. Optional – add chia seeds for some texture and additional nutritional benefits.
Peanut Butter, Banana and Raisin Breakfast Toast
Peanut butter (or any “butter” of your choice)
*optional – honey
1. Toast bread to your desired color.
2. Spread a layer of peanut butter on the toast.
3. Place banana slices over the peanut butter.
4. Sprinkle raisins over the toast.
After both of these simple breakfast toast recipes were such a hit with the kids I am really excited to try some other ideas. I think this is a great way to get some fresh items into our daily routine and hopefully help all of us start our mornings off right.
Tropicana Essentials® Probiotics is available at your local Walmart. I highly suggest you add this juice to your daily routine. All of the available flavors are so tasty and are the perfect drink to pair with these Breakfast Toast recipes. The 32-ounce bottles can be found next to the other refrigerated juices.
