Do you eat breakfast every day? I’ve never understood people who skip breakfast. Don’t they know it’s the most important meal of the day? Also, I’d be famished by lunchtime!
Not that I’m able to enjoy a leisurely morning meal anymore. Gone are the days of sitting down with a well-rounded breakfast, a cup of hot coffee, and something to read. Now I have to eat breakfast in a hurry — my mornings are just too crazy!
Between getting Levi fed, dressed, and ready for school and taking care of Asa’s needs, I barely have time to change out of my pajamas before tossing both boys in the car. (Somehow we’re always rushing to get Levi to school on time, no matter what time we start our day.)
But I can’t wait to eat breakfast until after I return home. I’m just too hungry by 9am when I’ve been up since 6:30. So I’ve started making myself breakfast to-go as if I were commuting to work. I spend almost 30 minutes in the car roundtrip, and if Levi’s playing on his “game phone” (my old iPhone) and Asa’s sleeping, I can listen to the radio and eat my breakfast in near peace. (At the very least, it’s quiet in the car after I drop Levi at school. Assuming Asa isn’t crying because his pacifier fell out of his mouth.)
I usually just grab a protein bar for the road, but I recently had the chance to try the new line of breakfast items from Tyson Foods, and I have to say, Tyson® Day Starts™ breakfast sandwiches are a much more satisfying. In the time it takes to brew a cup of coffee in the Keurig machine for my travel mug, I can pop a Tyson® Day Starts™ breakfast sandwich into the microwave. They’re made from high quality ingredients like fresh eggs and Tyson® sausage, ham and chicken, and offer a protein-rich way to start the day.
Oh yeah, and I can eat them one-handed while driving the car.
I’d love to know how other moms find time to eat breakfast. Do you eat with your kids or before they wake up? Do you eat something in the car or skip breakfast all together?
Tyson® Day Starts™ sandwiches are available in seven varieties, including biscuit sandwiches, breakfast flatbreads and wrapped omelets. I want to try the Southern Style Chicken Biscuit Sandwich next.
