I have been working on a more healthier me lately. In fact, I am now five days in with NO caffeine and I can tell you that this is the hardest road I have ever had to walk in my entire life! I’ve given up smoking and drinking, but caffeine is a whole other story!
With that being said, I have been looking for different ways to get my heart healthy diet on the road to better choices when it comes to breakfast and snacks — my two worst meals of the day. Thankfully, Quaker has come to the rescue.
Quaker is making it even easier to get a balanced diet in, and still provide tasty delicious foods. I was very impressed with the Banana Nut Bread bars that I received to try, along with all the other delicious goodies they sent.
So how can I use the new Quaker Innovations to help me?
1. Start your morning off with a healthy breakfast: If you are like me and don’t really eat breakfast, you should. It is a proven fact that eating breakfast helps you lose weight. Start the day with a bowl of Chocolate Chip Oatmeal, Whole Hearts or Oatmeal Squares, or if you want to start small, eat a Quaker Yogurt Breakfast bar.
2. Portion control is a very important key: Each of the Quaker items are low in calories and fat, so when you feel a hunger pain coming on, choose a soft baked oatmeal cookie or a crispy Stila Oat cookie bar.
3. Last but not least, keep pressing on! There will be days that you will have setbacks. When I do, I just get back on the bandwagon the next day and try again! Using all the Quaker products are a great way to stay on track with a heart healthy diet!
