This is a compensated review by BlogHer and Jimmy Dean.
However the opinions and feelings expressed here are my own.
The holiday season is nearing an end my friends. Unless you count Valentines day...and in that case the holiday season is just 3/4 of the way through! Let that put a little sparkle in your eye, now. However whether you count it or not, January is staring us right in the face.
January. The old girl is usually pretty cold in my neck of the woods. Also a bit boring. No one wants to make anything with butter and sugar anymore, holiday parties are over, and my pants are too tight. Not really my favorite month...if you catch my drift.
But with January also comes the opportunity for change. A fresh start, if you will. That is something to smile about. While I love (and have a serious addiction) to butter and sugar...it is bit refreshing to take a break from them for a spell. I cannot deny it. I often tend to get in a butter/sugar frenzy by the end of December. Come January I am ready to bring in a replacement! Something that is a little bit better for you!
A couple of weeks ago I was given some samples of Jimmy Dean Delights breakfast sandwiches.
Jimmy Dean has come out with several options for breakfast that have less fat, while still tasting great. I have to say I was a bit skeptical of these breakfast sandwiches at first. I'm more of a grind-the-wheat-make-the-bread-from-scratch kind of chic. However I am finding in my ever increasing busy life...I make better choices when there are "better choices" available quickly.
I was pleasantly surprised by the taste of these products! They are really good. They have a lot of protein and much less fat than Jimmy Dean's regular product. Two things that are a great bonus. I have found (in my many years battling the bulge) that eating more protein really helps a lot. Protein combined with whole grains is a magical potion. I am looking forward to hanging out with both of these two. More of these, less of the butter/sugar combo we discussed earlier. The new Jimmy Dean products will be a great addition to my routine. I look forward to having them as an option on a busy morning. Ok...let's be honest. I can count on one very tiny finger the mornings that aren't super busy around here. Must be the mother-of-five gig I'm trying to pull off.
