Jimmy Dean Better Breakfast, Better You & $100 Giveaway!!!

This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Jimmy Dean, however the opinions and feelings expressed here are my own.

A great way kick start a healthy life style is by getting enough protein each day. I recently had the opportunity to try Jimmy Dean D-Lights  for breakfast.  I had the turkey sausage bowl and it was D-elicious! I love eggs, cheese, and turkey…..and when mixed together it makes for a very tasty breakfast!

I am a wife, mom, and I work a full time job so I don’t always have time to cook a good breakfast in the morning. The Jimmy Dean D-Lights Turkey Sausage Breakfast bowl was a great option for me because it is quick, easy, and tasty all in one!

With only 230 calories and 23 grams of protein, I’d say this is a great way to kick start my new year goal!

Our family has been trying to make healthier choices lately by exercising and eating right. Let’s face it, it’s easy to get comfortable and let yourself go. When I exercise and eat right I feel better about myself and I have more energy to get things done during the day. I want to live longer and stay healthier to watch my son grow up.

In 2011 I want to try and be a better me….for myself, for my husband, and for my son. During my pregnancy last year I gained 65 pounds and it has not been easy trying to get the weight off. It’s something I’ve been struggling with for almost ten months now.  Incorporating protein in my daily diet has definitely helped me try and reach my goal.

My body had been through a lot of changes this year and I still have a ways to go….so tell me……

  1. Awe!! Seriously, seeing tha tpicture of you pregnant made me smile… HA Ummm I think that with this pregnancy I am more aware of what I should do and shouldn’t. With my first, I ate what I wanted, when I wanted. This go around I am trying to be more aware. Hopefully that makes for a better end result than my previous one. Ahhh You looked so cute!!

  2. I am going to keep off the 35 lbs. I lost in the past year AND I am going to work on eating less sugar and exercise more.

  3. Ok. After having babies in 2008 and 2009 I did ok in 2010. But I still want lose about 15-20 more lbs. So, I’m gonna have to stop having WheatThins & cream cheese & coke {regular, gasp!} for lunch. AND make the choice to eat better and work out more {or at all!}! Starting tonight! 🙂 Maybe. I also need to make the choice to stop using my TWO and ONE year old as my excuse for my bulging belly. haha! It’s not their fault anymore! 😉

  4. I came over from your sister’s blog.

    I live in Ft Worth too! 🙂

    I am going to drink more water, take my vitamins daily and try to walk several times a week. I need the energy to keep up with my 2 year old!

  5. 2011 – I want to get my family on a regular routine. Going to bed at a normal time, waking up for breakfast – I’m a SAHM and still don’t get up to make breakfast for everyone. My kiddos sleeping patterns are horrible and I need to get things right. I think we will all feel better if we get in a routine!

    I want to eat three healthy meals a day and get back to the gym. I would love to loose these last 10lbs.

    Btw, Becky, you look great!

  6. I;m going to try to drink more water this year. I’m losing weight and am happy with it but I think staying hydrated more with something other then soda and kool aid will help.

  7. IN 2011 I hope to exercise more. I am on my feet all day and that makes it hard to want to exercise after work. I don’t like using showers at the gym, so that cuts out the morning work out as well. I think I will try just walking in my neighborhood some and watching what I eat. I like the ease of the sausage bowl. I like a hot breakfast in on cold winter mornings. I want to try it and see how it tastes.


  8. Good for you losing all those baby weight! My new year resolution is to get outdoors more to bike or hike. Being in nature always inspire me to stay fit so I can enjoy it more!

  9. fighting cancer right now and just out of treatment and isolation but need to find balance and ways to heal the body so would like to try yoga to better myself in the new year

  10. You look great!!I have found eating breakfast with protein is the key for me to lose weight and feel good. I have lose 32 pounds and breakfast was the key. I also gave up sugar and grains! But the protein at breakfast helped me stay strong on the eating plan. I have 35 more to go.

  11. In 2011, my husband and I plan to eat healthier and excercise more often. We are getting our treadmill next week, so that will be extremely helpful! We are also going to sit down and set some financial goals! Or goal for 2011 is to LOSE and SAVE! 🙂

  12. I plan to eliminate some of the processed ingredients that I use to throw together quick meals. My new fancy slow-cooker will definitely be a big help with this, as I can now have a super healthy meal ready for me when I get home from working late nights!

  13. Will make better choices by simply putting what I already know into action!!! No more excuses!!! It’s time now for adherence to healthy eating, regular exercise, and an ecological lifestyle.

  14. I am going to drink water like when I was nursing and quit eating the kids treats that Nannie and Poppa bring over…..yes I eat their treats with them. shame i know.

  15. I’m trying to eat fewer empty calories and more nutritious foods–just because something is low cal doesn’t mean it’s good for you!

  16. I recently joined a fitness program at work that pays cash for pedometer steps, workouts, etc. I expect that will give me added incentive to excercise all year long.

  17. I plan on eating an healthy breakfast every day. Taking long
    walks every night with my dog
    Eating more fresh fruit and veggies
    and drinking more water.
    Thanks Cathy Truman

  18. I lost most of my baby weight, but I want to lose my pre-baby weight in 2011! I hope to get on a regular work-out schedule once I move up with my husband in the end of January.

  19. Oh dear, you know how I LOVE spinach. I don’t really do anything else except oats for breakfast. In 2011 I’m thinking of doing Turbo Fire to rev up my game. I really want to run a half marathon. We shall see. Gotta be healthy!

  20. We’ll be planting a garden this year, which means we will be eating fresh vegetables more often and getting more exercise.

  21. I don’t really eat breakfast. I just tend not to wake up early enough to make time to do so. But with more sleep I definitely do enjoy breakfast.

    As for my goal for the new year its to start eating healthier, but eating more salads and such, and to start actually working out!

  22. I love breakfast food, so maintaining that routine will be easy for me. I’m not so enthused about exercise. However, I’m having back surgery this Thursday. Regardless of my past bad habits, I’ve vowed to follow the directions of my physical therapist. I REALLY need to regain my lost strength and stamina. Doing things my way simply won’t do.

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

  23. I plan on cutting out junk food. well most of it, anyway, and stop drinking soda as much in 2011.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. I’m going to be getting back in shape after my 2nd baby (due any day now!!!). I plan to focus on incorporating whole foods and gradually increasing to a more intense workout routine. I would love to do a race or some other fitness event before the end of the year.

  25. My new resolution is to up my trips to the gym from 2 a week to 3 times a week. And to hold myself to “making up” missed gym trips with videos at home.


  26. I have resolved to actually eat breakfast in the morning. Usually I just run out of the house and don’t even think about it. So by mid-morning, I am starving and I have to go the vending machine to get something to snack on. So by eating a healthy breakfast every day, I should be able to curb all of the snacking that I do.

  27. I am setting aside 15 minutes daily for deep breathing and relaxation exercises. When I feel less stressed, it’s easier to stay on track with my goals, both health and otherwise.

  28. I am going to try to be more physically active, esp. during the winter months. I notice as I age, I have less stamina. I always need to drink more water!!

  29. i am making sure i eat veggies with at least 2 meals..i can’t just rely on vitamins anymore and i also am going to work to improve my good cholesterol level

  30. The ONE thing I plan to do to better myself is to make time for myself to do the projects I have been meaning to do for quite a while 🙂 Y’know, Me-Time 🙂

  31. We started out the New Year cutting back on salty and sweet snacks. We want to eat all heathly types of foods to lose our weight. We would like to win Jimmy Dean!!

  32. I don’t deal well with “thou shall nots” so instead, I’ll focus on doing good things for me: add more fruits/veg/whole grains and cut back on portion sizes.

  33. I lost a lot of weight with chemo, so this year I need to pack on some pounds while still eating healthy. I started a food journal

  34. I need to reclaim my body and not let my illness rule my life. So I want to start walking 3 times a week on the beach. No set time or distance – but if I put on the gear and get walking it will hopefully become a habit! A good one 🙂

  35. i am making sure i eat veggies with at least 2 meals..i can’t just rely on vitamins anymore and i also am going to work to improve my good cholesterol level

  36. I’m making a conscious decision to stop picking at my face. No more “just this once”s or “only whiteheads”. (tmi? maybe.) IM GOING COLD TURKEY! lol.

  37. I plan to start working out. I was working out for a while and felt a lot better but I couldn’t afford the gas to get to the Y. Our local Y just opened last week so I plan on spending as much time there as possible in the future. Thank you!

  38. So far in 2011, I have replaced high saturated fat with healthy fats and whole grains~ We also are eating more fresh organic fruits and vegetables

  39. I plan to eliminate some carbs ( I eat a lot yikes!) and introduce more protein into my nutritional meal plan, to exercise at least three times a week (just signed up for zumba) and to get more sleep (at least 7 hours 5 times week!) 🙂

  40. i’m going to try to make healthier choices for family meals and also make a point to walk on my treadmill regularly


  41. I am going to walk more and sit on couch less. I keep telling myself it is as simple as that, but no more talking. I am going to finally put my words into action.
