This mornings breakfast was a protein shake! Being a stay at home Mom I first thought I’d have all this time to make myself healthy meals during the day and get stuff done. Wrong! No one prepared me for how time consuming it is to take care of a baby! It’s a full time job! Props to those moms who have twins, triplets or more than one child! There is always something to do. Your baby needs to be fed, changed, played with or you’re working on crawling/standing/etc. Some days I just don’t have time to sit down to eat a meal let alone one that’s well balanced. Rather than just grab a granola bar I make myself a protein shake. This is the perfect meal replacement. And I can throw it in a shaker bottle and take it with me. Some days after dinner if I’m craving something sweet I’ll make one rather than having ice cream or sugar! It’s definitely a healthier alternative and I don’t feel guilty after eating it!
