Summertime is all being on the go, but it can make eating healthy harder! So we’re coming to the rescue with a quick, high protein breakfast without the bun!

The other day I had to buy a bathing suit.
(Let’s pause as we all relish the angst that most of us get when this happens.)
Not exactly my favorite thing to do…however, I’ll admit this year’s UGH wasn’t so loud because I’ve actually lost a few LBS over the last few months. Lots of hard work, lots of working out, and lots of new changes to get me on the road to a healthier version of me. As a gal who does love her food and her wine, it’s hard to say no, but I’ve found out for me what’s been working the best is a diet of high fat, medium protein and low to no carb. For short, it’s referred to a Keto diet. While I could get all crazy about what you can and cannot eat, it’s really been easy for me to adapt to and not feel like I’m going to be eating salad for the rest of my life. (I’m actually never hangry and get to drink all the coffee without sugar I want!)
It’s been a process and certainly not a quick one, but for me and for my future self who greatly wants to be around when my kids are having kids, it’s the right one. Unfortunately I did have to break a lot of bad habits like running through the drive through every day as trying to find things without a bun or to eat a salad going down the road.
(Believe me I tried it and my car and my blouse did not appreciate the experiment.)
Now that it is summer and the kids are home I’m challenged with keeping this healthy eating routine going and still keep up with the crazy summertime (no)schedule. As a mama, I may love having my kids home during the break, but there is no doubt that the ever-changing days makes it hard to keep things structured for them much less for you. Whether it’s dropping them off at camp, getting to go for a quick day trip, or hurrying off to handle whatever the brings, I’m going to be working to keep us all sane and to maintain the healthy keto-inspired lifestyle in check.
While a Sunday prep day is a great answer to keeping it keto, there are just some days that it just doesn’t happen the way you planned, right? You wake up late, the kids can’t find their shoes, work calls or a girlfriend calls – whatever, you get my point! Life happens. And it happens a lot.
So when a beautiful homemade meal of sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs with cheese doesn’t fit in the schedule (you know that one you wanted to make but gets thrown out the window), Jimmy Dean still makes it easy and tasty with their new Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles (found only at Walmart near the bacon, sausage and lunch meats.)
It’s like my new best friend since I can throw it in the microwave and with just about a minute, I have a hot breakfast (available with bacon, sausage and meat lovers) that’s high protein (like 20 grams plus), no carb and I can still eat in the car! Plus this way I can resist the drive-through urge to break my better way of eating and living (and keep my kids from wanting it too!)
I was pretty ecstatic to have prepped myself for those crazy mornings when I don’t know how I’m gonna get it all done and I gotta get out the door.
Then the little one figured out there was something to these Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles and stole it. (Oh well, her allergies still allow her to get to eat these, too!)
Plus beginning August 2, there’s a .75 cent rebate on these babies so you can stock up when you use Ibotta (and a $10 sign up bonus!) So get yours now (and then) and keep your bathing-suit figure in check while handling all the crazy that comes your way!
What ways are you eating healthy on the go?
