This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Bolthouse Farms®. The opinions and text are all mine.
You see, I first had it at a local coffee shop and thought about how I could make it at home and save myself the money. And a bonus for making it the night before and heating it up in the morning for the family! The thing is, we all have different morning schedules. Cassidy gets up early to go to the gym and will feed the dogs. That leaves the tiny humans to me. Mornings are often hectic and we don’t get a chance to connect as well as we could. That’s why we plan a weekend brunch for every Sunday. That’s how we unwind after a long week, but also get inspired for the next one ahead. It’s exactly what we need before the day’s adventures.
Being the Best You With Bolthouse Farms!
We have a weekend morning routine and it’s awesome. We tend to sneak out on the earlier side whenever possible to take the two dogs out for a brisk walk or hike before the sun is too high in the sky. Then we come back home for breakfast and for our favorite Bolthouse Farms® products! Man, they are good. We got ours as part of the Publix “Best You” promotion, in which you can get participating Bolthouse Farms products and savings here! We love Green Goodness®, Strawberry Banana Smoothie, and Protein PLUS® Chocolate – that one is perfect for coming in after a long hike outside. Every sip brings the magic of the farm to us wherever we are.
No matter the occasion, Bolthouse Farms is often the perfect part of the day – whether before, with, or after brunch or even better – for snacktime. I tend to work on weekends, just like I do on weekdays, so I cherish my snacktime all seven days of the week. What I love to do is get up for a hike, then have a big family brunch together, and then have a late morning snack of Bolthouse Farms Protein PLUS® Chocolate. It has chocolate that is rich in flavor, and the shake has 30 grams of protein and 21 vitamins and minerals per 15.2 oz bottle! Plus, it’s delicious!
And what does it go great with? My Delicious Egg White Bites. Surely you’ve seen these at coffee shops, but did you ever know you can make them easily at home? And it’s fun to make them custom with your own ingredients too. I like different cheeses than Cassidy does, and the kids have differing tastes too. Ultimately we try to make them fun for everyone for our weekend brunches. It’s a way to connect, eat some great wholesome food, and get inspired for the rest of the day.
