Over the years, I have had a love/hate relationship with breakfast. I went through a phase where I did not eat breakfast because I was “saving my points” (I know some of you have been there). Once I started having kids, I at breakfast more consistently…when I wasn’t sick to my stomach. I recently went through a phase where I ate two pieces of toast with butter, cinnamon and sugar slathered all over it…every day. I had to put an end to that because I didn’t want to go back to phase #1…counting points again.
So a few weeks ago, when I was trolling the aisles for something “breakfasty”, I came across…(drum roll please)…a box of Clif MINI Energy Bars. I had eaten Clif bars before for breakfast, but they always seemed a little too filling, so I was instantly intrigued. There were 18 to a box, three different flavors (chocolate chip, crunchy peanut butter, and chocolate brownie), and they were only 100 calories each. Perfect!
Fast forward a few weeks, and I am still hooked! They are the perfect little energy boost at the start of the day, especially because we eat lunch pretty early around these parts. I’ve also grabbed one for snack time…for the kids and myself…a lot better than the sugary snacks that I would usually snag!
Here’s to my new breakfast treat…and thanks once again to The Diaper Diaries for inspiring this “Things I Love Thursday” post!
