Peace Out 11AM HANGRY
in partnership with Chobani
True story, I'm not much of a cook. I take that back... when I cook, I'm pretty decent at it but the problem is that cooking has never been a priority especially in the morning. For as long as I can remember I've always been a coffee for breakfast kind of gal. I know, not recommended for so many reasons especially the 11AM HANGRY! If you're a coffee for breakfast kind of person like me then you know the wrath of "OMG I'm STARVING" that happens around 11am. Food cannot come fast enough! Enter: Chobani's new-ish yogurt drinks - when Chobani reached out in the spring about partnering to share the goodness that is their yogurt drinks, my actual email response was "This is PERFECT. I always get HANGRY in the AM because I never eat breakfast." It's been a match made in heaven ever since!
When it's a busy AM, I'm doing my hair and makeup in the bathroom with Chobani cherry vanilla (my fave flavor) sitting on the counter, sipping between putting on mascara and curling my hair.
If it's a work from home kind of day, I still walk to get my morning coffee then come home and open the fridge and grab a Chobani to drink as I go through e-mails. Who knew a full tummy was the trick to freelance productivity?!
Now there's no excuse for not having breakfast in the AM plus the driinks have a ton of protein which keeps me full until actual lunch time (PAST 11am).
Another true story: cooking not being a priority in my house means there's rarely food in my fridge or pantry. I eat out a lot more than I care to say (eek!), so having the yogurt drinks in my fridge has been great to grab for afternoon pick-me-ups, before busy days out, long drives, or beach days... aka they've become my go-to snack!
It seems like days are only getting busier for all of us - whether you work 9-5, kill it as a stay at home mom, or have an ever-changing freelance schedule - these babies are PERFECT for the gal on the go. My top 3 flavors? Cherry Vanilla, Vanilla Bean, and Mixed Berry.
Btw, this was such a fun shoot. I nearly DIED when I saw the Wilson Phillips record because it was my mom's favorite and she used to play it for me (cassette tape) when she drove me to school. I can legit sing every word from the album AND a few years ago they did a reunion tour and I took my mom to see them as a Mother's Day gift. #thebest Remember when they performed in the movie Bridesmaids? I just die for them!
