This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Jimmy Dean, however the opinions and feelings expressed here are my own.
I am a bit of a health nut, especially when it comes to my kids! Two of my kids are tiny. Like seriously tiny. My oldest is not tiny, but the other two are. In fact, I think I only have about another 6 months until my oldest is taller than me. She’s not even a teenager yet. Though since I’m only 5ft 1, I guess this was not that hard to do! Even for this child I have always been very conscious of what I feed my kids. This is a very big part of why I have a garden! I shred my zucchini up and freeze it so that I can add it to almost everything I cook and bake! I also add other veggies, wheat germ, and other nutritious ingredients.
Well, with my kids being so tiny, especially weight-wise I think it is even more important that I think through what they are eating. I’m always re-evaluating how I do things. With the new year coming up I always find it a great time to reassess everything in my life. I’ve realized my kids are not getting enough protein. I am just more of a fruit and veggies kind of girl, than a meat kind of girl. We LOVE our salads, in fact my kids will beg for lettuce. However, I think this means that my kids are not getting enough protein because we don’t eat meat a lot.
We usually have Honey Nut Cheerios, or Hot Cereal for Breakfast. About once a week I make pancakes or eggs or something hot. I know that choosing a better breakfast, will help my kids and I stay on track and set the tone for the rest of the day. I think this is a perfect time to fit in some more protein. With the New Year coming up I want to add a resolution to make hot breakfasts more often, maybe 3 out of the 5 school days. A good way to add some protein into this new resolution could be to add some Jimmy Dean D-Lights products to our breakfast menu. I can see how their line of products could help by adding protein at breakfast as well as still being quick things to make in the morning rush!
FYI: When I looked for these Jimmy Dean D-Lights, they were not with the sausages. Instead, I found them in the frozen breakfast foods aisle!
I love this time of year because it gives us that push to re-evaluate how things are going in our lives and what we can improve on! I’d love to hear how you are going to make better choices this New Year’s season. Leave a comment and enter for $100 gift card!
