Mornings with Thermos Brand


Start your morning off right with Thermos and a hot chaider recipe!
As I shared in my last post, this fall has been a chaotic, but wonderful season. With grad school, a full time job and trying to maintain somewhat of a social life, each day is packed to the brim with commitments. Before starting school, I spent time brainstorming ways to be more efficient and prepared for busy days. Reducing the amount of time I spend making grocery lists, grocery shopping and thinking through meals has been a huge help! I made a promise to continue eating healthy, balanced meals no matter how much of a time crunch I am on.

This is especially put to the test on mornings I am running out the door. Hello Monday morning! I love breakfast, but on the way to the gym or work it is hard to prioritize sitting down for a meal. I can tell such a difference, however, when I do! My whole day is more productive and I simply feel better. On days with early mornings or a tight schedule, I have egg muffins in the freezer that are easy to warm up and take on the go! They provide so much protein and you can pack them with any veggies you want. The options are endless.

Since I am not a coffee drinker, I rotate around a few different warm drinks in the cold months. My latest obsession is homemade hot chaider. As assumed by the name, it is a combination of chai tea and hot apple cider. YUM! Our favorite coffee shop serves this and I set out to make up a recipe on my own. Since doing so, I’ve made it nearly every morning to take with on the commute to work. With egg muffins and Thermos brand bottle of chaider in hand, my mornings start out on the right foot!
