Giveaway Closed- Congrats to Simone Slater!
There were two breakfasts that I always had at least a few times a week growing up-
1.) White rice with honey and creamer
2.) Muffins with honey and milk
I still love both of these childhood breakfasts often, but majority of the time I just sub in healthier alternatives! In example, white rice becomes brown rice or quinoa, creamer is replaced with milk or almondmilk, and sugary muffins are swapped out for homemade ones or healthier brands like for instance VitaLicious.
So when VitaLicious recently asked if I wanted to review their new Carrot Cake VitaTops, I didn’t hesitate to say yes:) What is Vitalicious? Let’s start with the benefits:
High fiber and protein? 15 vitamins? Pretty impressive for a muffin top, right? (That sounded weird). Anyways, I nearly didn’t get to try them, since Zazu was out in the yard when the box came in! I found him attempting to chew it up and rescued it just in time:)
The first one I plain and loved it! They were super soft and tasted just like carrot cake complete with raisins and a cinnamon-y flavor.
They were also really good-sized for 100 calories!
For school last week, I packed them frozen into lunches and let them thaw. They are actually pretty filling with their 9 grams of fiber, so I ended up having this one after school- so good!
I also loved them like this.
2.) Spread with good quality cream cheese
And I couldn’t end this review without crumbling them over yogurt! What don’t I put into yogurt? 😉
