Let’s face it…whether you’re someone who works outside of the house, works from home (me!), works by being a stay-at-home parent, student, or anything in between, we all need a break from time to time.
Am I right or am I right?
When I was shopping at my local grocery store, Jewel-Osco, I came across Kellogg’s Happy InsideTM Cereal. Have you tried it? Not only does this cereal come in two delicious flavors, like strawberry and blueberry, it also contains three digestive-friendly ingredients in one: probiotics, prebiotics, and fiber. The power of 3-in-1 helps to support digestive wellness.
That alone was enough to win me over. I knew that I had to stock up on the Happy InsideTM Simply Strawberry and Bold Blueberry flavors. It would serve as the best afternoon snack when it’s time to take a break. And did I mention that we all need a break?
I love working from home. The flexible schedule, the ability to work in my comfy clothes, and recipe testing and photography (and editing, writing, etc.) are truly passions of mine, and I feel very fortunate that I’m able to do this.
However, working from home can sometimes be draining. Yes, it’s not the same as an office environment. I worked in higher education for ten years, so I know how the hustle and bustle of a busy office full of meetings, phone calls, presentations, and endless projects work.
But, when I am working from home, it’s hard to just flip the ‘off’ switch and forget about work. My computer is always luring me to come back for another 5 or 10 minutes, and I am constantly mulling over new recipes and ideas for the blog. I’ve gotten a little bit better about separating work and home time, but it can still be difficult come busy times.
And to get me through some long days, I make sure to take an afternoon break. A little time away from my computer, refueling my energy with a good book and a tasty snack.
So you can only imagine my delight when I found Happy InsideTM Cereal. Not only do I love the flavor and crunchy texture, but the prebiotics, probiotics and fiber are pretty great, too. It contains one billion probiotics CFU; is Non-GMO Project Verified; and has no artificial colors or flavors. It’s a cereal that I can feel good about eating for breakfast or snack time.
I was so happy to find this cereal at Jewel-Osco. My family has shopped there for as long as I can remember, and the hubster and I have done our shopping there for years as well. There’s a great selection of just about anything you are looking for, and the store is always clean and friendly.
I found Happy InsideTM Cereal in the cereal aisle. However, you can also download the Jewel-Osco mobile app and do your shopping there, too. Easy and convenient!
Now, let’s get down to the yummy stuff. Although I do like eating cereal for breakfast, it also works as the best afternoon (or late night) snack. Hearty, tasty and filling…just what I’m looking for.
I will admit that I don’t take breaks during the day as often as I should, so I’ve made a point to do that more. Around mid-afternoon, I like to step away from my computer and curl up with a good book, a magazine, or flip through my DVR to see what show I can catch up on. It helps to clear my mind and relax for a bit.
And, of course, a snack is not far behind, either. My favorite afternoon break involves a tasty treat!
I usually will reach for some yogurt, fruit, or granola, but now that I found Happy InsideTM Cereal, it’s been my new go-to snack. I can feel good about enjoying it because of the whole grains and delicious taste. Have I mentioned how good the blueberry flavor is? So good, friends!
If I’m being honest, I actually like cereal more now as an adult than I did as a child. So you can bet that I always have a stash in my pantry. And the hubster loves Happy InsideTM Cereal, too, so it’s a snack that we can both count on to satisfy the munchies.
So, when the mid-day slump is upon you and you need that afternoon break, reach for this treat and clear your mind. Whether you get outside for a quick walk, read a book, or scroll through your phone, some time away will do you good!
