A special thank you goes out to Nature Valley Bistro Cups for sponsoring and inspiring this post today.
First, don’t delay what can be done in advance – Now I am as guilty of procrastination as anyone else, however I do try to do what I can the night before. That means getting gas for the car on the way home from school, ironing and setting out clothes, packing lunches in advance, and even taking a shower. I also somewhat style my hair so it is easier to work with the next day.
Second, get to bed at a decent hour – If I know I need to be up early and handling the majority of the morning duties, it is necessary for me to head to bed early. There have been too many times that I went to bed late and completely dragged throughout the entire day.
Third, have easy meal solutions on hand – I keep fresh fruit, cereal bars, oatmeal, and simple to make foods that can be prepared in the toaster for my kiddos. Plus, of course I have plenty of coffee for MOM!
Speaking of Oatmeal… Nature Valley has created a delicious new product that can be conveniently made in a brewer machine.
Nature Valley Bistro Cups are available in Apple Cinnamon Almond and Brown Sugar Pecan flavors and are easy to prepare.
Simply place the oatmeal pouch content in a cup, then insert the Bistro Cup in the brewing machine, finally pick the 6 ounce option and brew. Once it is ready, stir, and allow to stand for a minute. It is that simple.
