Ok, lock me up. Guilty as charged. I am a criminal. I hardly ever eat breakfast (when I’m supposed to). Between feeding the kids, checking emails, doing the first load of laundry, and just getting the house going for the day, it’s always a few hours into our morning when I realize that I’ve forgotten to eat. It’s not that I don’t *want* to eat. I just get so caught up in the morning routine (hahaha! Routine. I laugh at myself sometimes.) to actually fix myself something to eat.
Did you know that*…

Seneca Farms has developed my saving grace. I love oatmeal, and would happily eat it daily. They’ve come out with a super easy breakfast solution even I can manage to pull together. Seneca Farms Oatmeal and Fruit is microwave ready in its own little cup. No water or milk required! Just pop that little bad boy in the micro and you’re good to go. Or, if you’re like my husband who has to be at work early, just toss one in your work bag and eat breakfast at work. I tried both the Apple Cinnamon and Vanilla Peach flavors. They are both great, but I definitely liked the Vanilla Peach the most. Talk about delish! Seneca Farms plans to expand its flavors later this year with Oatmeal & Fruit Cranberry Apple, and Oatmeal – Maple & Brown Sugar.
I know that for me, a busy work-at-home-mom, the Seneca Farms Oatmeal and Fruit is the perfect solution to my busy mornings. The heat and eat convenience it provides is exactly the shortcut I needed to be able to squeeze in the most important meal of the day. You can find Seneca Farms Oatmeal and Fruit at many national retailers.
