  1. awesome! Will definitely be trying some of these! Especially the hard-boiled eggs. I don’t really like them, but they’re a great way to add some protein to breakfast since hubby is usually grabbing it to-go and eat on the way to work.

    1. I agree! It is hard to fix foods I don’t like for my family! I branched out and bought some olives recently and my toddler loves them. Maybe they’ll grow on me?
