A quick breakfast is the only way of life around here. With working from home, homeschooling, taking care of the babies, and all the other little life tasks, eating can sadly take a backseat throughout our day.
Let’s face it, we have all fallen victim of being on our way to the kitchen or about to eat, when one of our kids yells for us. And before we know it, an hour has passed, and you never got your food. So how do we save time in the kitchen?
Grabbing a Jimmy Dean® Frozen Sausage, Egg and Cheese Croissant Breakfast Sandwich at Albertsons is one way we make sure we get a quick breakfast! We love how flavorful they are and that we are getting our protein and real ingredients with Jimmy Dean! With Father’s Day coming up, they also make the perfect breakfast for their special day!
The difficult thing about eating as a parent is the lack of time to make something. My days go from 4:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m., and believe it or not, there are not “slow” moments of the day.
Grabbing a bite to eat together in peace needs to happen quickly and early, before our days are filled with telecommuting and homeschooling! Due to our lack of time, we have been heavily dependent on grocery delivery services like the one you can get on the Albertsons app (you can also find coupons & deals there too).
Grocery delivery services help to make sure we have our pantry and refrigerator fully stocked. So why do we need a quick breakfast as parents?
We need the energy
I spend my days chasing a grade schooler, preschooler, and 9 month old twins. I. NEED. ENERGY! I am up 17 hours of the day, and in order to keep up with my kids, I need to fuel my body.
We forget to eat
This happens way too often. Seems silly, the idea of forgetting to eat, but I spend so much time taking care of so many different things that eating isn’t always at the top of my head.
Our kids are our priority
The moment you become a parent, your entire focus in life changes to your kids. I can honestly say since becoming a parent 10 years ago, I have never slept the same or eaten the same lol! I could be in the middle of taking a bite to eat, and if they need me, I stop and go take care of them.
This is a huge reason why we love Jimmy Dean’s Breakfast sandwiches and how convenient they are. I just need 50 seconds to heat it up and I promise, it’s so tasty you won’t need much time to finish it!
We have 100 mental tabs open
Shutting down my mind is so hard. I spend all day making mental (and written) notes of the things I need to get done, buy, make, etc. Multi-tasking is nothing compared to the hundreds of things going on in my brain!
We deserve a quick breakfast too
Not only do we NEED to have a quick breakfast to suit our lifestyle, we deserve it. We deserve to eat something we love without it taking up huge chunks of our day. By spending less time in the kitchen, we are able to spend more time focused on the things that matter – like our kids.
