In case the gobs of notebooks, pencils and back-to-school specials haven’t notified you that it’s almost time for class, we’ll make sure you know: school is back in session!

Whether you’re going back to school yourself, or wrangling kids and their back packs out the door  your schedule is about to go from relaxing summer mornings to a hectic, run-out-the-door-and-don’t-miss-the-bus mornings.

So, how do you have the energy for this?  You’d be cheating if you said the simple answer of “have breakfast”.  Unfortunately, we’d have to fail you.  There’s a bit more to it than that.

The University of Missouri studied those who ate breakfast, those who didn’t eat breakfast at all, and those who had high protein in their breakfast.  Not surprisingly, those who had a high protein breakfast saw the most benefits.  These included “increased feelings of fullness, a reduced desire to eat, and lower levels of ghrelin (a hunger-stimulating hormone)…over the course of the entire day.  They also had reductions in their ‘cravings-related’ brain activity and increased levels of a hormone associated with satiety.”

This is why you’re going to need more than a cup of classic joe to get you through these packed mornings.  You need something to fuel your morning that is easy and yet filling and delicious.

Thank goodness this isn’t a complicated math problem.  The answer is as simple as ABC, or rather TTP.  Order Modere’s Triple Thick Protein Shake—a tasty way to sip down 21 grams of protein.  Throw it in a blender or shaker cup and gulp it down before the kiddos stampede down the stairs, or drink it on your way to school to start your morning off right.

Because you’re the type that doesn’t just sit in the back of the classroom, but is the teacher’s pet here’s how you can amp up the already amazing protein shake.  Add in these to further bolster your breakfast benefits:

Bananas: Toss in a banana for a natural way to sweeten up your shake.  Bananas will not only improve the taste but will add in potassium, fiber and a host of vitamins.

Spinach: If you have a hard time eating your greens, sneak them into your shake!  The delicious chocolate flavor will mask this leafy green.  Popeye must have been a straight A student though, because throwing in a generous handful of spinach to your shake will increase the iron and antioxidant levels.

Oats: This whole-grain adds an earthy, breakfast bar taste without having to do any baking.  Plus, it will add additional manganese, biotin and vitamin B1 to your shake.

Don’t be tardy about this health tip!  Be sure to get an A+ and fuel your mornings with Modere’s Triple Thick Protein Shake.  If you do, instead of having mornings school you, you’ll be showing them who’s teacher!
