This is the year of the parents. I mean, sure, the kids will always come before us but the fact is, us parents, we need some attention. A few weeks ago I talked about how one of my new years goals was to take better care of myself by making those yearly appointments for MYSELF as well as for the kids. That goal has been difficult but I must say I am proud of my husband and I for making and attending a few of those appointments in just the first 2 months of the year! Woohoo!!
As we continue the goal meeting streak I have found myself also focusing on another aspect of the healthier parent goal. Breakfast – yes the most important meal of the day. Why? How many of you focus all your morning energy on making sure your kids are fed properly before heading off to school but often just pick up a coffee for yourself after drop off? :::Raises hand::
I found my Deep Chocolate and Protein Banana Chocolate Chip VitaTops MuffinTops in Kroger‘s frozen food section! You can find yours at your nearest Publix, Kroger, Stop & Shop, Shop-Rite, or Target locations.

I would definitely like to try these for breakfast, lunch or a light dessert after dinner. They look so delicious.

I've never even heard of this brand but I love the idea of having a muffin top for breakfast – seems a lot healthier than eating cookies! I make bean-based protein cookies and eat those for breakfast sometimes so I can get more protein in my diet!
First off congratulations for making the decision to take care of yourself and your hubby first. If you don't take care of you who will? Plus it makes you better parents and sets a good example for your beautiful children. Now on to the muffin tops! in a word YES in another YUM! That's the BEST part of the muffin! I have to try these

Seems like us moms barely find time for ourselves. Its very important to do. And the muffins look yummy!

We really need to settle down to breakfast more often. I've always wanted to try the chocolate-flavored Vitatops MuffinTops, but haven't gotten around to it. I didn't know that they had a protein-packed flavor before.

I don't think I've ever seen this brand either. Looks good.I agree parents need to take care of themselves too. This will be your year.

Breakfast is a really important part of the day. Lots of people tend to skip it, thinking that it will help their diet but such is not true. Anyhot, it's great that you're putting importance to it!
I wish more parents would focus on their own well-being. It would really benefit their children as well. You'll be a better parent when you're healthy and well grounded.

I am the WORST about skipping breakfast, and a few other meals sometimes, ha! It feels like eating takes up so much time that I would rather skip that, then have to deal with being late, not meeting deadlines, etc. However, that's truly not healthy. I have been working on a little me time in this new year as well. I'm glad you are working through it too! I love those muffin tops! They're my snack/breakfast from time to time!

I would like to try the Protein Banana Chocolate Chip. I think that the tops of muffins are the best part anyways.
Julie Wood says
I love VitaTGops Muffin tops and have had them once. I love the Deep Chocolate flavor! I need to get some of these muffin tops for me and the kids!
