Breakfast Coffee Drink at Home {not Starbucks!}


 

Here is a way to achieve two goals: save money and be healthier {sorta}.

One thing all the diets agree on is that you have to eat breakfast.  Well how many of us don't because we have little hands getting into everything and little feet that require corralling?  Actually "eating" breakfast is something I have never been good at.  So...

What I do is mix Slimfast Protein Powder with 1 cup of milk as directed {except I use 2% not non-fat} shake it up, and then fill the rest of the bottle up with coffee.  Wallah!  You have a breakfast coffee drink that is healthier than any coffee drink from a store, and it has protein in it too.  What a win-win.  There are several different breakfast drink mixes out there, like Caranation Breakfast and others in the health food aisle.

You can also just do one or two packets of hot chocolate mix with milk if you are going to actually eat breakfast.  I do this on Saturdays when Mr. SD is fixing breakfast for me and the kiddos.  I love his breakfasts!
