Skipped: The “What-To-Do-About-Breakfast” Post

I powered through one of the Healthy Kids Tropicana orange juices that I fell in love with a few weeks ago on my walk to the subway this morning, and tossed the container without even a second thought of taking a photo because I had every intention of slipping out and grabbing a $2 breakfast sandwich about 10-10:30 am.

The next thing I knew, the next time I checked the clock on my computer screen, it was 10:57 am, and I missed my opportunity. (Most delis close their grills at 11 am to prep for lunch service, if not a few minutes earlier, and they’re pretty hardcore about it.) Ugghhhh.

I decided, at this point, to stick it out and make it an early lunch …


Breakfast: Market Discovery, Tropicana’s “Healthy Kids” Juice On-the-Go (aka “Cute Straw” Post)

photoVery exciting discovery in the grocery store last night:

Tropicana now sells six-packs of these vitamin-fortified, 8 oz. servings of orange juice, complete with cute expandable straw. If you’ve read this blog with any regularity, you might have picked up on the fact that I like to drink my juice in the (recommended) 8 oz. serving size. Something really satisfying about that.

I’ve never seen orange juice commercially sold like this before; the smallest cartons are usually 12 oz. and up. I may not be the target demographic (the packaging is clearly labeled “Healthy Kids”), but I’ll be drinking up.

COST: On sale for $2.99 per pkg (6)

Breakfast: Monday, March 23, 2009


Oy, it’s Monday.

The goods for this groggy, maybe I had one too many glasses of wine while setting up this blog last night, sort of Monday morning are intended to be fortifying, in two phases:

PHASE ONE: 12 oz Tropicana “Pure Valencia” orange juice, followed by

PHASE TWO: 7 oz Fage 2% Greek yogurt with a healthy dollop of McLure’s clover blossom honey from New England … Mmmm … Or should I say bzzzzz …

COST: $3.99 (not including honey)
PREP TIME: 30 seconds
