I feel like a crazy mama this summer. We are so busy that I can barely keep up with our schedules. I found a great way to keep all of us eating healthy on-the-go. Would you ever guess a convenience store would carry fresh food options? Honestly a convenience store is most likely the last place I would think to look. 7-Eleven now has a Fresh To Go section that takes the stress out of eating on-the-go. No more staring at a drive-thru menu weeding out the junk. Fresh foods are a priority for 7‐Eleven.
As a family of five merging everyone’s schedules is beyond stressful. I don’t think my kids even remember what home cooked meals are, it’s embarrassing I know. I have packed so much into this summer that we don’t seem to be home long enough to get a meal on a plate. My kids don’t seem to mind not eating at home in-fact they love eating in the car and especially love having a picnic at the park in between me being their taxi. The convenience of 7-Eleven is a fast and simple way for me to grab healthy food options and be on our way.
An honest mom moment: Taking my kids into 7-Eleven definitely tempted them to want “junk food”. I mean they knew exactly where the candy aisle was and they had never been in this particular 7-Eleven. Satisfying those hunger cravings with healthy options never felt so good. Offering my boys fresh fruit and yogurt in exchange for a candy bar was easier than I thought. All I had to do was offer them a juice box and any two items from the Fresh To Go Section or that candy bar. It was an easy trade-off and we are all happy and eating healthy.
