Sometimes when I eat something for breakfast, like cereal for instance, I find that around two to three hours later I start feeling peckish and a bit tired, instead of reaching for an ever-ready treat from the office kitchen (you know a donut or candy), I make one of these great GC Control shakes.
Not only do I love them for their taste, but they fill that “hole” and provide a boost in energy, getting me back on track. That’s because they provide me a better balance of protein and carbs that last far longer than a donut or candy bar. The link below explains why this product works so well.
This is a good start to my Friday morning! Hazelnut Coffee and the French Vanilla GC Control…mmm, mmm, good! Sometimes I mix my coffee together with GC Control Cream Brulée for a different and delicious morning treat.
