Breakfast Is Changing | Trade In The Spoon
Samples provided. All opinions are my own.

Breakfast has always played an essential role in our diets, but times have changed.  As today’s modern family has evolved, consumers’ morning routines and breakfast eating habits have changed as well.

With the hustle and bustle of getting myself as well as the children ready for school, there are many mornings I would only have a cup of coffee for breakfast. By the time everyone was ready from head to toe with food in their bellies… there was really no time for me to sit down to eat.

That… is not good.

belVita Bites are a convenient option for mornings on the run. No spoon required. Each 50g serving (one pouch) provides: 230 calories, 4g of fiber*, 20g of whole grain.

belVita has partnered with Registered Dietitian Keri Gans, Life Coach Christine Hassler, and author of Eat It to Beat It David Zinczenko to provide a few tips for a healthy breakfast and a smooth morning routine.

Tips for a healthy breakfast

  • Said Keri Gans, Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist, “A serving of belVita (which has @20g of whole grains/serving and 4g fiber per pack), with a low-fat Greek yogurt and a serving of fruit, can be the perfect grab and go complete breakfast.”
  • Said David Zinczenko, New York Times best-selling author of Eat It to Beat It! and the Nutrition and Wellness Editor at ABC News, “Being that people today have no time to cook, they are looking for options with nutrition’s latest buzzwords – protein and fiber. belVita paired with a serving of non-fat yogurt and fruit hits on protein, fiber AND whole grains.”
  • Said Christine Hassler, life coach and author, “Doing something 40 days in a row moves it from a change to a habit. Making a complete breakfast a habit starts today.”

I’m as guilty as the next person when it comes to starting my days right. It wasn’t until I started making breakfast a priority that I noticed how big of an impact eating a good breakfast could make …on my mood, energy level and even my weight loss goals.

Did You Know…

  • Recommended amount of fiber for women is 30g, and 35g fiber for men.
  • A study by NPD Group Inc. found that Americans have an average of just 12 minutes a day for consuming breakfast. That is about half the time we spend on lunch (28 minutes) or dinner (24 minutes).
  • Eating breakfast sets the tone for the day because it gets our blood sugar up which makes our brain function better the rest of the day. It gets our metabolism going. It reduces cravings later in the day. And it puts us in a better mood.
  • Dietary fiber from whole grains, as part of an overall healthy diet, helps reduce blood cholesterol levels and may lower risk of heart disease.

My supply of belVita is almost out. I’m convinced and we are trading in the spoon for good!

Have you tried belVita Bites? Your spoon won’t miss you, I promise.
