Whether you’re a mom or not I think you can all relate to the mornings where you are rushing to get everything you need to leave the house for the day. For me it is usually, dress B and get all his food, snacks and drinks packed. Make sure I am reasonably put together, get out of the house…ON TIME. The one thing for me that is usually a casualty to time management? Breakfast. I know, you don’t have to tell me, the worse thing to do, especially when trying to lose weight, is miss breakfast. So how do I remedy this?
Introducing belVita breakfast biscuits:
I have been keeping packages of belVita in my car and purse. Each package contains 4 biscuits, and each package has 18-20 grams of whole grains, 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein. The biscuits are baked to release energy continuously and that gives the consumer nutritiously sustained energy all morning. So how’d they stand up for me?
The first morning I had already prepared my oatmeal, so I shared a packet with my main man. We shared the Cinnamon Brown Sugar flavor, two biscuits for him and two for me.
I took mine and broke them into pieces and let them sit in my oatmeal while the peanut butter melted. While this is not one of the suggested pairings of the belVita biscuits, I can see myself eating this often (and if you love oatmeal you should try it). Since, I let my oatmeal cool/the peanut butter melt into the oatmeal, what ended up happening was that the biscuits sort of also melted into the oatmeal and the flavors mixed with the oatmeal was amazing. B also chowed down on his biscuits, paired with half a banana, he was very happy with his breakfast. I have to say this flavor, hands down, was my favorite.
The next flavor I tried was the Apple Cinnamon, I was in a rush and I needed something quick and easy. I paired the biscuits with an Apple Cinnamon Greek Yogurt.
I loved this pairing, I ended up using the biscuits almost as a spoon, and the yogurt as a dip. For someone who is in a real rush, this is a great way to get in a healthy breakfast, and one that will keep you full and satisfied all morning. Plus if you use the biscuits as a spoon you don’t have to dirty any dishes. That’s what I call a win!
Next I tried the Blueberry flavor paired with blueberries and raspberries, and while this wasn’t bad, I preferred my biscuits with yogurt. Next up, the golden oat flavor with banana and a small amount of peanut butter. Here is the only snag I hit. The first package I opened had a piece of gravel in it. Not something I want to bite down on. The representative at belVita felt awful and sent me a replacement box immediately. They even included a sweet note about their quality control and making sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else. Things that make me love companies, excellent customer service. BelVita is exactly that, they were apologetic and gracious, and 100% ensures that I will buy the product from my local store.
The last flavor I had was Chocolate. I try to have my sweet snacks at night, it’s my little treat. I paired this flavor with a greek yogurt and honey. For me this was a wonderful sweet treat at the end of the night. I wouldn’t necessarily eat this for breakfast, but could envision it as a snack or dessert again.
I also paired it with a banana and peanut butter, unpictured but delicious.
Since I was adding the biscuits to another part of a meal, I never ate the whole packet, 2 was usually enough, I think if only had the biscuits to eat, I would eat the entire packet, but for the instances I listed I always had another component.
So where can you find belVita breakfast biscuits? They are in your Cracker & Cookie aisle in your local grocery store. They are available in 23 countries, so even if you live outside the United States, you might still be able to try them.
