How Shelly and I Start The Day With A Hearty Breakfast and Good VibesJuly 25, 2018
One of my favorite things about the morning time is having breakfast with my Ultimate Concierge.
It gives us a chance to sit quietly and connect, often talking about our plans for the day or things in the news; it’s an ideal way to set the tempo for a happy day together.
And, while this breakfast routine has been a constant in our more than two decades long marriage, some things have changed.
We’ve always been healthy, but as time goes by, I believe we naturally become even more focused on feeding our bodies things that will keep them strong and vibrant.
A hearty breakfast is truly the ideal start to a busy day.
Study after study has shown the negative effects of skipping breakfast and it’s just something my Ultimate Concierge and I do not do.
Not only do we need the nourishment, physically, but we enjoy the nourishment to our relationship found in the quality time we get to start the day with.
Meet New Cheerios Oat Crunch
Nowadays, breakfast includes a piping hot cup of coffee, some fresh fruit, and new Cheerios Oat Crunch. That’s why, when Cheerios approached me and asked me to be an ambassador for their brand I said, “Absolutely, yes!”
After all, darlings, one thing I have learned is that you cannot set out for adventure on an empty stomach! And, as you know, adventure is something Shelly and I are always running towards. It’s part of what keeps us feeling youthful, no matter our age.
Now, back to the breakfast that powers our lifestyle…
Breakfast with new Cheerios Oat Crunch delivers a crunchy texture and delicious taste pairing of cinnamon and sweetness that we love with our morning fruit and coffee.
One serving provides an excess of 50% of our 48 grams of Daily Recommended Whole Grains thanks to oats, sorghum, and millet. Plus, there are NO artificial flavors or colors from artificial sources. Best of all, this is a breakfast option that is hearty and filling…and Shelly and I love it!
My Morning Cheerios Parfait
This is one of my favorite ways to enjoy new Cheerios Oat Crunch with Shelly! Pretty, appealing and hearty, this recipe adds a bit of flare to the morning and as you know, I appreciate finding beauty in the simplest of things.
Simply combine one serving Cheerios Oat Crunch with your favorite fresh fruit and yogurt and layer. Of course, a beautiful clear glass is a must so that you can see the delightful juxtaposition of colors in your morning breakfast. When it comes to eating fruits and vegetables, lots of colors is a wonderful thing.
Don’t mistake me, we also enjoy our Cheerios Oat Crunch straight up; topped with a generous pour of milk in a colorful bowl.
How about you? How do you start your day? What’s your morning breakfast routine? Do tell!
