I don’t know what mornings look like for your family but for my family it’s usually pretty chaotic. Each morning one of my elementary school daughters has to get up for orchestra and ride the early bus to the junior high. The girls set their alarms for 6 o’clock every morning but usually just turn it off when it buzzes. Their bus leaves at 6:45 so between the time their alarm goes off at six and the time they have to leave, I walk up and down the stairs no less than three times to wake him up or check on them. Once she is on the bus, I need to help the other get ready. Breakfasts, homework packed, lunches and snacks prepared, confirming they did their chores, etc. are all part of the routine. In the middle of all that, I’m checking online for things that need to be addressed or wrapped up.
It’s exhausting and there are some mornings that I forget to eat breakfast. That’s not a good thing because breakfast is the most important meal of the day. A couple of times a week hubby and I go to the gym which makes eating breakfast even more important because I need the energy to burn. With the warmer weather on the horizon (knock on wood that winter is finally over since we are already in May) we will start running outside on the opposite days of our trips to the gym. Breakfast is important and not just ANY breakfast. Sometimes I have oatmeal – which I love but it’s time-consuming. Other times I just grab a granola bar. It works, but ideally I prefer protein.
Thanks to Tyson® Day Starts™ products, I now have new items in my breakfast arsenal. Tyson® Day Starts™ sandwiches come in seven varieties including biscuit sandwiches, breakfast flatbreads and wrapped omelets.while they all looked tempting, I couldn’t resist the call of the flatbreads!
The sausage egg cheese flatbread that I bought was positively delicious but what I liked most was how quick and easy it was to make. It only took one and a half minutes in the microwave and it toasted up nicely. I had a sausage egg and cheese flatbread which was kind of like a pizza that I folded over. A few of the pieces of egg fell off when I folded it over so I tasted them on their own. I fully expected something you would find in a school lunchroom but to my surprise they were fluffy and very tasty.
It’s quite often that were eating on the run but Tyson® Day Starts™ products will work well. Since they cook up quickly and can be handled easily, anyone in our family could make these for breakfast. As the kids get older and show more independence it’s nice to have protein filled options like this instead of just cereal and granola bars.
