Quick bites

My mornings used to be a relaxing medley of warm coffee, tidbits of the local news, browsing through my closet in search of a cute work outfit, and several days a week I might even curl my hair for work!  Whoa!

But now it’s jump out of bed, diaper change, nurse, dress Jenny, dress baby (bonus points for matching!) messy bun, and whirlwind to get out of the house for 7:10am.  It’s a good day if I remember deodorant 😉

So when a friend asked if I would sample these new “Karma”ffins from U-Be-Livin-Smart, I could not pass up the chance for a ready made breakfast.

The box of samples came last week, and immediately I called dibs on the Belgian Chocolate with Banana ones. Tony gravitated to the Berry Medley box.  And this folks is why we have a happy marriage :)

Upon reading the box, I was a little nervous.  These bad boys are nutrient dense muffins and each little square is packed with Protein, Fruits, Vegetables, and Fiber; Sweet Potato, Avocado, Blueberries, Blackberries, Cranberries, Pomegranate, Raspberries, Orange, Mango, Banana, and Apple.   I assumed these would be super heavy and have that protein bar taste that I am never a fan of.

But man, was I surprised!  The muffins are incredibly light and airy, and I could have probably eaten about 3 in one sitting.

Fortunately this lady has will power (or more like time restraints) so I kept things in check 😉

I was pleasantly surprised to find that they were low in fat and high in protein and fiber.  Win win.

See full nutritional info here.

They currently come in 4 flavors: Smoothie Berry Medley, Belgian Chocolate with Banana, Orange Cinnamon with Mango, Apple Cinnamon with Chia Seed.  I’ve now tried them all, and seriously enjoyed each one!

I’m not sure what I love more… eating a nutritious breakfast that keeps me full for a few hours, or not having to make it myself.  Either way, these are winners.
