Breakfast Eureka - Plenti: Packed Full of Goodness

Disclaimer: Sponsored Post. Click here; see below.

I'm terrible about eating breakfast. They say it's the most important meal of the day, and on a leisurely day I do like to eat breakfast. I love breakfast foods, but on a regular morning, feeding myself is the last of my priorities. In fact, after getting myself up and dressed, the kid up and dressed, his meals for the day packed, the dog walked, our bags packed and everything into the car, usually breakfast doesn't even make it ON the morning priority list. After taking care of everyone and everything else, I neglect to take care of me. And I know I'm not the only mom to do so.


I need something full and healthy that I can grab and go. I don't have the mental energy to spend time on my own food. That's why this new hearty Greek yogurt from Yoplait is so great. Plenti yogurt cups come in 8 different flavors (a variety of fruits, and vanilla, my personal fave), and in addition to their smooth flavor and texture are loaded with oats, flax seeds and pumpkin seeds. Greek yogurts can tend to be on the tart side, which usually means I have to take a minute to doctor it up with honey or something, but these are just the right amount of sweet that they need nothing extra.  Just grab and go.


The addition of the oats, flax and pumpkin seeds add extra texture to the yogurt, but I'm good with that.  Pumpkin seeds have great nutritional benefits (magnesium, zinc, anti-oxidants, to name a few), and flax seeds are high in protein and fiber to help keep you full.  


I actually like even more crunch, so I do keep some sliced almonds on hand and add a topping. I actually don't need much more than this for a filling breakfast, and I feel good about myself for remembering to eat and for actually eating something good for me. 


This little cup has simplified my mornings - eureka! - and gives me energy to start my day.  If you're like me, you'll be so happy with this find!  Let me know what you think!
