Midnight Pregnancy Cravings Need #QuakerShakes + Giveaway

This post was created in partnership with Quaker. All thoughts and opinions are my own.


I don't think I could have gotten through my midnight pregnancy cravings without these NEW Quaker Breakfast Shakes that I was turned on to.




If you've been pregnant, you know about those intense hunger pangs in the middle of the night, that wake you up and FORCE you to go scrounge in the kitchen for some grub. 

The worst thing was that fixing a whole bowl of cereal or other snack, meant that I spent too much time awake, and lost precious minutes of sleep. The Quaker Breakfast Shake was my saving grace, as it was easy to sip, feel full and get back to sleep quickly. 

I was given a sample of this breakfast shake to try, and ended up sending my husband back to the store for more two days later, because of their convenience to use in the morning for breakfast or in the middle of the night as a snack.  


The Quaker Breakfast Shakes come in three flavors:
  • Strawberry * my favorite *
  • Chocolate
  • Vanilla
Plus, these shakes aren't just a bunch of fluff, they include: 8 grams of whole grain oats, 10 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber, and weigh in at only 200 calories!

Not too shabby! Plus, did I tell you they taste yummy and fill you up?



Want to try out Quaker Breakfast Shakes for yourself?  

Here's a coupon for $2.00 OFF your purchase of Quaker Breakfast Shakes!  


WAIT, there's more. Quaker has teamed up with McKinney Mommas to give you a chance to win a gift card so you can use your coupon and go purchase some delicious Quaker Breakfast Shakes on their dime!

  22. I manage busy mornings by doing what I can to prepare the night before (after the kids are in bed) and then I make sure I get up early before the little ones (my oldest has epilepsy and takes meds at 6:30 every morning, so I am up by 6:00) to get myself ready & start breakfast started so once the kids are up... the focus is on getting them ready and the older ones off to school on time.
