Emerald Nuts
Breakfast on the Go

" 93% of people believe that Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but less than 43% actually eat breakfast every day. "
Emerald Nuts has these awesome little Breakfast on the Go packs that fit right into your pocket or purse. They are filled with granola clusters, dried fruit, chocolates and various kinds of nuts and 200 calories or less. I've been eating them for the last 3 years or so (ever since they first came out). 

When they first came out I was having a lot of trouble with dizziness and nausea and so I would try to eat something with protein thinking that was my problem. Turns out it was actually that my thyroid had stopped working and my body wasn't producing any Vit D - but these little packs would get me to lunchtime when I could eat a better more nutritious meal of protein and veggies. They are ideal for a snack for kids or grown ups and easy to throw in your athletes backpack, in the diaper bag or in your desk drawer at work. 

Recently Kelton Research ran a survey for Emerald Breakfast on the Go and they found some surprising results. Check 'em out:
  • 41% of breakfast eaters eat "on the go" at least once a week.
  • 35% have balanced eating while driving. 
  • 20% eat while trying to get dressed in the morning.
  • Among some of the oddest foods consumed for breakfast include: pizza, birthday cake, fried chicken, nachos, rice and ketchup and macaroni and cheese.
Read the results here.

There are 3 varieties of Breakfast On the Go packs:

Berry Nut Blend: Roasted peanuts, granola clusters, dried cranberries, vanilla yogurt raisins, glazed walnuts and dried blueberries.
Breakfast Nut Blend: Vanilla Yogurt Covered Raisins, Granola Clusters, honey roasted peanuts, dried cranberries, apple cinnamon glazed walnuts and dried apples.
Smores Nut Blend: Peanuts, Cocoa Roast Almonds, milk chocolate candies, graham cracker squares, mini marshmallows and granola clusters.

You can see they are chock full of yummy goodness and while I think they are more suited to snacking - most people love sweet things for breakfast and these will be right up their alley!  YUM!
