Frozen Foods to get us thru the hectic days of summer

This post brought to you by American Frozen Foods Institute and the Frozen Food Roundtable. All opinions are 100% mine.

Whatever happened to lazy days of summer? I remember the days I packed up the three kids and dragged the large swim bag to the pool for the day. This summer I am not sure I have even been in the water at our pool. The kids all off in different directions and activities our mornings especially are more hectic than school year. Having frozen food options for breakfast and even lunch has been my lifesaver his summer. There are actually many benefits of frozen foods


This summer we have had to leave the house around 8 am for swim team and tennis practice. The kids can easily grab EGGO waffles from the freezer and make a quick breakfast. We purchase the whole grain variety for extra nutrition. 


While I would love to have a freezer full of homemade frozen breakfast burritos, realistically this does not happen. The kids love grabbing a Jimmy Dean Delight sandwich, especially the English muffin, turkey sausage and egg white variety. Add this to a glass of OJ or cut fruit for a well-balanced, protein packed meal.. The freezing process actually maintains the freshness of the ingredients and does not create soggy eggs, an issue I have had making my own frozen snacks. Find the benefits of fresh vs frozen.

Jimmy-Dean-Delights For an extra summertime treat, the kids enjoy a toaster strudel now and then. I grew up with bakery fresh coffee cakes but always felt compelled to eat it before it went bad. Now you can just get an individual serving whenever you crave it.


Lunchtime can be just as exhausting in the summer. The kids and I will grab a quick meal out of the freezer on days no one is motivated to make anything or more realistically we don’t have bread. I recently enjoyed the Morning Star pizza, especially the southwest influenced variety.

Hot pockets are also summertime and after school snack favorites at our house. The spinach and 3 cheese in pretzel variety reminds us of a Spanakopita.
