This 30-Second Breakfast Will Be Your New Go-To

I'm a firm believer in the benefits of breakfast. Especially, on school days. 

**Today I'm partnering with GardenLites to discuss the benefits of a healthy breakfast, and how to pack as much goodness as possible into every bite. All opinions are my own.

Some mornings, it's definitely a struggle to make time for breakfast, but I do. Always. I see how crazy my kid gets on the weekends when he doesn't eat breakfast soon after he wakes up. I like his teacher, no way am I going to send her a grumpy beast!

For quite a few months now, my favorite fast, wholesome breakfast go-to are these microwavable superfood muffins I get at Costco by the case. The kid, hubs and I eat them. Here's the best part, and something I'm not telling them, the FIRST ingredient is a vegetable.

The chocolate muffins are so packed with veggies, I'll let him have one for breakfast.

It is so important to me that you know I've partnered with GardenLites today because they are a long-time favorite. Seriously, I buy them at Costco by the case and so do a couple of my mom-freinds. Our kids and husbands eat them without complaining! It's gotten to the point where if one of us goes, we talk about which muffins they have at Costco, because they change frequently.

Right now our Costco has the Blueberry Oat muffins. Get this, the first ingredient is zucchini! Veggies are always the first and primary ingredient in all of the muffins and they are gluten free, dairy free, nut free, non-GMO The boys LOVE THEM! I feed them vegetables for breakfast and they don't even know it. HAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Since I was writing this post, I tried to make a fancy photo out of Ollie's breakfast muffin. Well, Ollie wasn't having it because he wanted his muffin. I had to chase him and the muffin into the living room to get my photos.


It says something when he eats the muffin before the strawberries.

GardenLites muffins are wholesome, tasty and super fast to make! I'm more happy to put my name behind them. And I'm not the only one, Good Housekeeping gave GardenLites their seal of approval, too!

You can get GardenLites Muffins at Costco, your grocery, store and other fine retailers.  TIP: I get the muffin tops from Kroger because they are yummy and never at Costco. To find a store near you click, here.
