Make your mornings easier with VitaTops


If you know me at all, you’ll know that time management isn’t one of my strengths. As hard as I try, I always find myself running at least 10-15 minutes late to practically everything and always feel like I’m racing against the clock. I never feel like I have enough time to do everything I need to do and because of that, I seem to always feel a bit overwhelmed.

I blame it on poor planning, procrastination, and plain laziness. Of course, I also call it being a working Mother. Regardless of the reasoning behind it, I took the first step in improving my organizational skills, by purchasing AND ACTUALLY USING a planner this year!! yay…go me!

I have found that planning out my week every Sunday night in my planner has helped me feel less overwhelmed and more in control of my to-do list. Additionally, I have had to cut a few corners in the morning when getting ready for work so that for once, I could actually get there on time (horrible I know). Between getting my son ready in the morning, taking a shower, and making sure I look semi-decent, having the time to make a wholesome breakfast just isn’t an option.

I recently tried the VitaTops muffin and  my Hubby and I have hooked ever since! They taste great, come in a wide variety of flavors, and have fewer calories than traditional muffins. Not to mention, they contain wholesome ingredients and use no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives.

But perhaps my most favorite thing about these VitaTops is how convenient it is to have one! They come individually wrapped so I can literally just grab and go! I like to wait for them to defrost on their own but you can also place them in your microwave for a few minutes and voila!

I found my VitaTop muffins at Target! You can find yours there too or, at your nearest Publix, Kroger, Stop & Shop, or Shop-Rite. Check the freezer section!

Am I the only person who finds strolling through aisles therapeutic? Sometimes, I see it as therapy.

Each VitaTop has it’s own unique health benefits:

  • Organic
  • Protein-rich
  • Superfoods
  • Gluten-free

I selected the Deep Chocolate and Protein Banana Chocolate chip. Admittedly I LOVED LOVED LOVED the protein banana chocolate chip the best. I like that it has 8 grams of protein and 6 grabs of fiber. The deep chocolate flavor tastes wonderful as well and I really like that they have fewer calories (100 per serving).

Having the protein banana chocoalte chip VitaTop before or after a workout is PERFECT. Now I do want to mention that this product is NOT vegan. It does contain some trace egg whites.

I love that you can just place them in the microwave without taking them out of the packaging.

    I really need to look into these! I am like you, always running out the door and usually have a granola bar for breakfast. This would give me another healthy option to try!

    Ok, these look delicious! Thank you for the heads up and the great tips. My hubby would totally eat the chocolate ones and I’d hoard the banana!

    This look great. I have never tried them and had no clue they were organic and GF. Would love to give them a try

    • Projectlifewellness | 30th Mar 17

  8. runawaywidow | 30th Mar 17

    I am drooling! These look amazing. I can’t believe the high protein count and that they are gluten free. Can I order them on your site?

    • Projectlifewellness | 30th Mar 17

      thanks girl! I know! I was super excited about the protein content. I totally had one after my workout this morning! LOL you can click on any of the links by clicking on the photo and that should take you to where you can order 🙂 thanks for stopping by!

    I need these in my life! 100 calories? Healthy? And look that good?! 😍

  11. Kate Aquino | 31st Mar 17

    We need to start adding these to our grocery list- they look amazing, and any excuse to have chocolate and peanut butter at breakfast is a win in my opinion!

  12. Alicia Nicole @ Melanated Beautiful | 31st Mar 17

    I LOVE these! I used to eat these all the time on the way to work in the morning. They are the perfect breakfast food!

    • Projectlifewellness | 31st Mar 17

  13. Chasa Fulkerson | 31st Mar 17

    I am most definitely going to try these! I was showing my husband and he was like they are like muffin cookies. yes, yes they are! haha. These would be good for us on the go in the morning on out way out to go hiking! I am pretty excited about these because they look so good too!

    • Projectlifewellness | 1st Apr 17

  14. Gelli | 6th Apr 17

    This is a perfect after work snack! I’m gonna look into this. It looks so yummm!

  15. generationtrygirl | 6th Apr 17

    I used to LOVE these! Haven’t bought them in a while, but maybe I’ll start buying them again. 🙂 The Chocolate chocolate ones were my faaaaave! Sometimes I’d thaw one, cut it in half, fill the middle with light cool whip, and put it back in the freezer. Yummy health(ier) DIY Ice Cream Sandwich!

    I am also trying VitaTops for the first time. Here is my post. http://www.homeecathome.com/the-home-economist/the-best-on-the-go-healthy-treat-vitatops-muffintops Love your close-up photos. Do you use a DSLR camera or a point and shoot? I use a little point and shoot that has a macro setting, but I can’t seem to get great close-ups.

    • Projectlifewellness | 7th Apr 17

      Thanks so much Faith! I love your post also. I use a Canon DSLR and I bought a 50mm lens which is what you’ll want for shots like these. using a lower aperture setting helps to blur the background of the image producing a crisp picture. I’m still working on my photography but i seriously love this lens! You should check it out. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

    I shop at Target probably 3 times a week! Ha! It’s a problem. I think I’ll try these for myself, but for my kids! They love muffins and if I can give them healthy ones, heck yes!

    • Projectlifewellness | 8th Apr 17

      I shop there wayy too much myself! haha. Go for it! I think you’ll like them very much 🙂

  18. Genevia | 5th Jun 17

    I just love Muffins! Extremely happy to have discovered these healthy choices. I am going to run to the store and grab these soon.
