My Good Life and How I Fuel It!

New CB Disclosure 400px wide

When I wake up in the morning, I always look to my nightstand where I leave a list of what needs to be done. It’s usually long and lists times, if necessary, but what’s it’s usually lacking is a place for breakfast.

…it’s been especially hard here with Addie not feeling well and having some pain eating solid foods. Naturally, Dave worries about us, but even more so, he worries about my eating and taking care of myself- especially while pregnant. To help both Addie and myself, Dave went on a mission to find some simple solutions for his ladies.

A very concerned daddy!

To fuel our mornings, we need quick, easy and transportable and in the breakfast aisle of Walmart Dave found just want he wanted… an easy to mix breakfast shake that I wouldn’t fight him to drink.

I LOVE milk, but need more than a glass to sustain me until lunch. Nestle Carnation® Breakfast Essentials™ packets are something I come back to again and again. When I was pregnant with Addie, they served as an afternoon snack at work, and now they are what make breakfast so simple for me. In fact, this is the first whole week in my entire pregnancy that I’ve had breakfast with enough calories and complete nutrition. Seriously… 32 weeks today and I’ve finally accomplished breakfast on a routine basis. Go me!

I feel like I had the opportunity to have breakfast because Addie has been under-the-weather and so we’re not rushing to her usual classes… but this also leaves us home all day and my sweet lady still not able to eat like her usual self- leaving her little ribs looking rather exposed. Knowing this, Dave and I have gotten really creative with just getting calories in her, but we don’t want to load her up with junk. What we came up with comes from the same family as my breakfast solution: Nesquick®. While Addie has never had any special milk flavoring (just plain, organic 2%), the need to get more calories in her with some vitamins took over, and as I mixed her a cup and we started our day (with lots of appointments), she gladly took it!

While we won’t use Nesquick a lot, it is nice to have knowing there are a few upcoming procedures she will be going through and some of them will render her hopeless in terms of feeding. Milk is the way we usually go to get energy in our sweet girl to just keep her going through the days of recovery. I am so thankful to have found something to help us boost her vitamin intake in  a tasty way!

It’s hard to get up and take care of everything that needs to get done in 24 hours for the house, your kids and family, while remembering yourself, but breakfast is the most important meal of the day! I try to remember that I am not just helping my family thrive by giving them the best nutrition, but by taking care of me  I am setting a good example, too.

Thank you to #CollectiveBias for helping us make breakfast a regular meal in this house again! This is #MyGoodLife… what’s yours?

    I have been drinking Nestle Chocolate Milk since I was a kid and now my kids drink it. I love, love, love the taste and love that my kids are getting nutrients to fuel them. Thanks for sharing your day with us!

    Sometimes I forget to eat breakfast, too, and then in the middle of spin class my tummy starts to rumble – which is not fun at all.

    My kids drink Instant Breakfast like it’s going out of style. Maizie had a virus at the beginning of the summer and lost over 10% of her body weight in less than a week. When she finally decided she wanted food, she had about 3 day. She also has them as her after school snack.

    You’re rockin’ it girl!! I always cook and sit down to breakfast every single day. And sometimes, it’s too much!! I give Ben breakfast, I’m making lunch, I’m trying to go to the gym, and make myself presentable for the office all while trying to get out the door on time?! Seriously?! I should really look into easy, transportable breakfast more. Benjamin is hooked on carnation essentials, so I always have them in the house. Maybe I will sneak a few for myself! 😉

    My daughter used to have to drink instant breakfast shakes in the morning. They were the only way to keep her from losing weight! Carnation was the only brand she didn’t complain about.
