I have partnered with Milk. Love What’s Real. I have been compensated for my time commitment. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
It’s almost back to school time! I can’t believe it. Summer has gone by SO quickly!
On-the-go breakfasts and lunches are pretty much a necessity during school am I right?
Here are some EASY ones to prep in the morning (they take 5 minutes don’t worry!) when you’re running out the door
1. Salad in a Jar
2 cups greens
1 bell pepper
⅓ cup shredded cheese
2 Tbsp light dressing
Hard boil egg
Combine all ingredients
Pack dressing separately & add it in when you’re ready to eat if you prefer!
2. Overnight Oats
1 cup 2% yogurt, plain
¾ cup 2% milk
1 cup raspberries
½ cup dry oats
Combine oats, milk, yogurt, berries
Let sit in container with lid (like a Ball jar) overnight
If you prefer the texture of harder berries, add the berries in the morning. However, the flavor will be better (more sweet) if you add the berries the night before
3. Hard Boiled Egg Lunch with Smoothie
In the box →
1 cup arugula
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
2 oz mini mozz balls
1 Tbsp light vinaigrette
Hard boil eggs
Combine salad ingredients in a glass lid-lock container – add dressing at the end if you prefer
I don’t typically drink smoothies myself but I get so many requests for them! So here’s a good one you can easily take with you
1 Raspberry Smoothie
1 cup 2% milk
1 cup frozen raspberries
½ cup ice
1 Tbsp peanut butter
Blend well & consume fairly quickly!
And YES I used real milk in these meals 🙂
Real dairy milk (one of the original farm-to-table foods) is wholesome, affordable, and highly nutritious – a good source of protein with 8 gm of protein per 8 ounces🥛
AND milk is only $3.50 per gallon (national average)
It ALSO contains calcium and vitamin D which are hard to find in other foods and beverages
If you haven’t had some regular milk recently, get some next time you’re at the store!
