A Healthy Breakfast Should Include A Fabulous Drink! #SilkFruit

We lead a REALLY busy life and I work a lot of hours.  Generally, I spend a lot of time preparing my family’s meals.  It’s important to me that they eat healthy and get all of the nutrients they need, but sometimes that takes longer than my schedule allows.  
Every day is the same.  The hubby gets up at the crack of dawn and his breakfast and lunch have been prepared for him the night before by me while I work. I work late and then get up and work until the babies wake up and then I fix breakfast for them. 
I don’t do an elaborate breakfast on either count.  Usually some sausage or bacon and eggs for the hubby with a blended protein shake sealed up tight and stored in the refrigerator for the morning.  Cereal with soy milk, some fruit on the side, and juice for the babies.  It’s important that they get all of the protein and nutrients that they need, and it’s my job to provide those things.  The other night, I found a healthy short cut!
I was at Walmart and spied this new Silk Product.  You can see my full shopping experience HERESilk Fruit&Protein was located in the refrigerated milk and juice section.  We already love the Silk line of products since we deal with lactose intolerance in our house, so I was intrigued. 
All kinds of lactose-free goodness wrapped in one little carton.  Protein..check!  Calcium…check!  Vitamin D…check!  Vitamin C…check!  Only 29 grams of carbs in each glass, and low in sugars…SCORE!  Plus I don’t have to premix, pre-measure, or take the time to blend!  And more importantly, Silk offers me a “Love It Guarantee”.  If I don’t love it, if my family doesn’t love it, we get our money back…their PROMISE to us!  Of course I picked up a carton and planned to make the switch (and cut 15 minutes out of my evening chores)!
Instead of preparing the blended protein shake, I poured this and loaded it in the frig with the hubby’s breakfast, lunch, and snacks!  Fingers crossed!

Text in the morning:  Me:  “How was your shake this morning baby?”  Him:  “Really good, what did you do differently?”.  Me:  “Nothing really”.  SMILE!
Then it was time to feed the babies.  Blueberry waffles (easy frozen style), some watermelon, and a nice cold cup of Silk Fruit&Protein Strawberry Banana.  Skip the lactose-free milk and cup of apple juice all together.  This is all-in-one easy!
Bubby dug into his breakfast and pretty much ignored his new drink, but he was happy which made me happy!
But the true test…Bug!  Miss picky pants!  She took a sip and gave me a look.  Then another sip, another look.  Then another sip, and a smile!  “This is really good Mommy, what is it?”.  It’s a time-saving, protein-packed, fruit-filled carton of joy for Mommy, that’s what it is!

    The mason jars seem to make it through all of these moves we’ve made over the past few years. I’m thinking we should stock up even more. Even the steakhouses are handing them out now!

    I believe what you composed made a lot of
    sense. But, what about this? suppose you were to create
    a killer title? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean “A Healthy Breakfast Should Include A Fabulous Drink! #SilkFruit” is a little plain. You could peek at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create
    news titles to get viewers to click. You might try adding a
    video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it would bring your website a little livelier.
