Thanks to Johnsonville® for sponsoring this post about one goal many of us have each January – having a healthier plate! For me that starts with a lighter breakfast.
- PUMPKIN PUREE TIP: Yes – I add 1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling – note the different cans) to my batter. This is a great way to add veggies (and one with vitamins you may not get often) to your breakfast. Add a few sprinkles of cinnamon as well. I’ve heard cinnamon is good for regulating blood sugar.
PROTEIN: I enjoy eating sausage and it’s a great source of protein, but I find that come January I’ll want to lighten things up and a great way is to use turkey as an option!
Johnsonville Fully Cooked Sausage TURKEY links!
Did you hear me say fully-cooked? That’s important to this busy mom and makes it more likely that I’ll actually eat it for breakfast because 2 links are cooked in a matter of 30 seconds.
With 70% less fat than USDA data for cooked pork sausage and no fillers, and no MSG, it’s my choice. With 8 grams of protein per 2 Turkey links, it’s a great way to start my morning.
While many sausage products are in a box, you can see exactly what you are buying with Johnsonville! I love that.
For convenience, I also love that the packaging is resealable. That’s huge in my book, especially if we are thinking about breakfast. I’ll be honest…..in my family, we each eat breakfast at a different time (at least on weekdays). So I don’t always want to prepare the entire package. Not having to store extra sausage in a separate container is a time-saver and dish-saver.
You can find Johnsonville® Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage at your local Walmart or to check specific locations visit the Johnsonville product store locator.
There are 3 different varieties:
- Original Recipe
- Vermont Maple Syrup
What’s one of your favorite healthy ways to have a lighter breakfast in the new year?
