Start Your Day a Different Way #Giveaway

imageDid you know that breakfast is a really important part of the day?  I know that if I haven’t eaten by 10 or 11 am I am totally shaky and a grouch the rest of the day. When I’m at home I like to eat eggs with bacon and toast or pancakes. Or when we go out to breakfast I will get corned beef hash and eggs.  I’m not totally excited about fast food choices for breakfast, though.  I hate how most places have greasy sandwiches and hashbrowns. I tend to feel sick after eating some of those choices. One of the places I do like to go,  though,  is Corner Bakery.  I like the fact that they have a non-greasy breakfast sandwich option.  I also love the smoothies they have.  They post the calories on their menu which makes it easier to make healthier decisions to start your day off right.  Unfortunately there’s not one very close to my house,  but there is one close to my husband’s work so he can stop by and get a nice,  healthy lunch.  The only time I seem to be able to get to Corner Bakery is when I’m downtown.  I ate there after my event for Verizon Wireless.  It cost me only $7 to get breakfast when it would have cost me nearly $30 to have room service. I think Corner Bakery was definitely the smarter Choice. I got a breakfast Panini and smoothie and brought them to the train with me.  I love how convenient Corner Bakery is at Union Station in downtown Chicago.  I love taking the train to places.  It’s so nice to not have to drive or park downtown.  I swear sometimes I need a Xanex for that Experience!
Do you eat oatmeal for Breakfast?  I’m more of an apple instant oatmeal kind of girl. I’m not a fan of old-fashioned oats myself.
I would love for you to take my breakfast survey to see what’s important to you for breakfast.  If you do, you can win a $50 gift card to Corner Bakery.  I promise the survey isn’t long.  Please enter my survey:

You will have 48 hours to respond to my email or another person will be chosen. Please add to your contacts so that my email does not go to spam. No purchase is necessary to win.

  1. I do enjoy oatmeal, but not in the middle of summer. I REALLY love bacon & eggs wrapped in a fresh tortilla!!

  2. I completed the survey. I wish that places that serve breakfast would start having gluten free bread options for those of us who need to eat gluten free for health reasons. It isn’t that hard to keep a frozen loaf of bread on hand and toast it in separate toaster. Then we could ALL enjoy breakfast away from home.

  3. I love corner bakery. Just wish we had more around here. There are plenty in DC. I love breakfast foods. Could seriously eat breakfast all day long! 🙂

  4. I love most breakfast foods, I just eat them for dinner most of the time. I’m rarely hungry in the mornings.

  5. I did the survey. I’m kind of on a diet – so I’m not eating any bread or grains – so usually I have two over easy eggs on top of our leftovers from the night before (which is usually mostly veggies). Weird, but it’s a great way to eat after my morning workout and keep me full until lunch

  7. I love breakfast, but with such little time in the mornings, I find it hard to have a variety of delicious and nutritious breakfast options that are quick and easy. I took your survey, too.
