Getting a healthy morning start with V8 protein shakes and breakfast bars is really important to me. I don’t know about anyone else, but if I don’t eat something within an hour or two of waking up my tummy begins to hurt badly. This is why I have begun packing a chocolate V8 Protein Shake and a V8 Chocolate Peanut Butter Bar in my purse when I leave my house in the morning.
Chances are, if I don’t pack something healthy my grumbling tummy will lead me directly to the closest starbucks drive-thru to order something I probably shouldn’t have. The V8 Protein Shake is made up of all the good-for-you-choices that you should be making on a regular basis! Wholesome ingredients like milk, soy, peas, brown rice, quinoa, veggies from sweet potatoes to carrots. No high fructose corn syrup here – V8 is made with honey, brown rice syrup and sugar.
When you eat a meal with lots of protein (and minimal fats) you stay full for longer than you normally would if you just ate something full of sugars. I love that this Protein Shake boasts 12g of protein and 3g of fiber! When you are expecting, I can use all the extra vitamins and nutrients I can get!
I found these shakes and bars in the health and beauty aisle at Walmart.
Like most all moms, my mornings are about getting everyone else dressed ready and fed with a lunch in their hand AND make sure the dog is fed with fresh water and been let outside. That being said, the very last person that gets taken care of is… You guessed it! Me!
So once I have JP dropped off and start my journey to work, I like to enjoy my cold V8 protein shake and bar from the comfort of my driver’s seat. I go through a lot of trafficy areas, so I can sit and savor while listening to the radio and creep along at 5 miles an hour. Such fun!
So what else is in my survival kit? I like to keep it simple with a few essentials…
- V8 Shake & Bar
- Fresh minty gum
- My wallet
- Hand sanitizer
- Mini hair clip
- Lip gloss (the kitty is a lip gloss gift from my JP – I carry it around because it makes me think of him!)
- And last but not least, antacids because pregnancy sucks!
