Getting a nutritious breakfast has been almost too easy since my family started the routine of grabbing their new favorite Chocolate Breakfast Muffins before heading out the door in the morning.
The mornings in my home have been known to be chaotic but that is a thing of the past thanks to Carnation Breakfast Essentials®. Now that we have created this delicious recipe for breakfast muffins that save us time every morning, we decided to commit to other healthy activities as well.
Instead of hitting the snooze button like she used to my daughter now has extra time to make her bed, pack her own lunch for school, and get some other chores done. This leaves her with more time throughout the day and we have committed to being more active by using the time we save for exercise.
Now that I have made these delicious chocolate breakfast muffins, my husband is actually eating a nutritious breakfast in the mornings. That is a huge improvement because some days he has been known to work 14 hours on an empty stomach. I can’t stand to see him starve himself just because he just doesn’t have any convenient options that fit into his morning routine.
I can certainly understand the struggle to find time to make breakfast in the mornings and I think most parents can relate, most mornings, especially school mornings are crazy!
I knew we needed to make some changes to better our lives so my family decided to start every day right and take the Carnation 7-Day Breakfast Challenge!

I headed to Sam’s Club to pick up my Carnation Breakfast Essentials® 30-Pack of Powder and found it by the cereal aisle.
