Surviving The Day With belVita Biscuits
As a busy parent, I know all too well that zombie feeling that comes at 6:30 am when the alarm clock goes off. It’s time to start a new day, slowly. That means dealing with a crying seven-year-old who gets WAY to use to school breaks before starting work. Let me tell you, it’s super fun! I just go through the motions but I am not really awake.
Life is hectic and I don’t always have the time to cook a hot breakfast unless it’s a weekend. Even then it’s usually just for the kids. Yes, I admit it, I am a breakfast skipper. My hot cup coffee is my breakfast most of the time. It’s no wonder I feel like a zombie until noon. Here are some healthy ways to boost energy so you can survive the day without biting someone’s head off + the PERFECT grab & go breakfast OR snack.
We’ve all heard it a million times, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Despite this being the case, at least 1 out of 10 adults skip breakfast. Guilty as charged. Eating breakfast really does have its benefits, though. It helps improve your mood and keeps you more alert. I’m not saying to eat any old thing like a donut, though.
You want something that will get you over the slump of zombie mood and give you steady nutritious energy. I found the perfect thing – belVita Biscuits (and a serving of milk and fruit). They are delicious AND in convenient individual packs! They come in many varieties but my favorite is probably the cinnamon & brown sugar although the oats & chocolate are up there too.
Start Your Day With Fuel
Yes, eating a donut might quash your sweet tooth but it has very little benefits. You just temporarily spike your blood sugar and wait for the inevitable crash. But, belVita Biscuits provides you with so much more. They are packed with whole grains, fiber, and protein – all of which are essential to boosting energy. They even contain B vitamins which play an important role in how energy is released.
If you go too long between meals your blood sugar will drop. Commonly known as the afternoon drag. Again, choosing the right foods is key to boosting your energy. By the time 3 o’clock rolls around, the vending machine of candy and chips may be screaming your name, but resist! Not only does belVita Biscuits have the crunchy, sandwich, soft baked, and yogurt crunch varieties, they also have belVita Bites Breakfast Biscuits. They are perfect for dipping in greek yogurt along side some fruit – that goes equally well in yogurt. Tons better than foods that just give you empty calories.
Drink More Water
Sometimes when we are tired we are actually just dehydrated. Think about the times where you’ve drank a little too much booze. You know the feeling! A nice cold glass of water may be just what you need to fight off the other zombies.
I know this is going to sound strange and counter-intuitive. Exerting energy will give me more energy? Yes, it’s true. I know you would rather go back to bed when you are tired than take a walk around the block, but it may be that energy boost you are looking for. So instead of laying with your head down, take a quick stroll and get that blood pumping. Better yet take a quick stroll to Walmart down their cracker aisle where they have many different flavors and forms of belVita Biscuits.
While you’re at it stop by your nearest participating Walmart on Saturday, January 7th or Sunday, January 8th for a special belVita Breakfast in-store event.
Each location will offer belVita Breakfast samples, exclusive savings, smoothies, giveaways and more.
