Our Morning Breakfast Routine

School mornings are a little hectic around here now. Despite the fact that school starts at the same time here as it did in Georgia, I now have two kids in school instead of one, so it naturally just doubles the chaos. My goal is to be awake by 7:30 so that I can get myself ready in the morning, and then have the kids up by 8am so I can get them dressed, fed, and out the door by 8:35 to get to school. 

One part of our routine that I have down pat is breakfast. I don't like to overcomplicate things at all so I usually just stick to a one carb, one fruit, and one smoothie rule that I've made up. The kids will typically have something like a frozen waffle, a muffin, or some cereal for the main bulk of their meal, and then we typically pair it with some fresh fruit to give a little boost of nutrients. 

My kid's haven't always loved smoothies, but I recently started adding in the Odwalla Fruit Smoothies into our morning routine, and the kids haven't had any complaints. Em will usually eat anything you put in front of her, but Jay, being my more picky child, took to them right away. Odwalla Fruit Smoothies are simply great-tasting nutrition made with high-quality Non GMO ingredients. 

My favorite flavors have been the Odwalla Original Superfood and Blueberry Monster fruit smoothies, but they have so many different flavors and varieties of 100% fruit juice, smoothies, and almondmilk shakes that I've been anxiously waiting to try them for all my on-the-go busy school morning needs. 

I picked up my Odwalla at Albertsons but you can find them in most places where Coca-Cola products are sold. Plus, right now you can Save $1 on your next purchase of in-store fresh cut fruit when you buy any TWO (2) Odwalla 15.2 fl. oz. (You'll receive a print out coupon at the register.). Offer ends 10/31/2017.

  1. I used to drink the Odwalla smoothies when I was in college. They were a good breakfast!

  2. We love Odwalla in our house too! It must be wonderful to have school start at 9. The school's in our area start at 8, which I think is a little to early

  3. Our High school starts at 7:30! My girl is on the bus by 6:30. I like steel cut oats in the pressure cooker and always add Morning Star Farms veggie sausage links (Trader Joes) or Patties (Costco) for some slower digesting protein. If we are in a rush I pair the veggie sausage with Eggos and she can eat it running out the door if needed.This never happens...:)
