My daughter and I lead a very busy life. Between my travelling and blogging and her schooling, social life and her new internship in a veterinarian’s office, we’re all go all the time. When it comes to mealtime, we need something that can make life a little smoother and easier, especially now that we’re going to be cramming everything we do in on top of Angeline’s school and work schedule. In fact, “busy life” might be an understatement!
Making Time in Our Busy Life
We both might have crazy hectic, busy lives, but that doesn’t mean we have to be ships passing in the night. Inside our home, there’s just the two of us since I’m going through a divorce, so we need all the time we can get to bond and reconnect. It’s an important way for us to never lose sight of the fact that no matter what craziness is swirling all around us, we still have each other – always.
That’s why I love Ragu®. With their spaghetti and pasta sauces, I (or Angeline) can have a nice, sit-down meal ready for us to enjoy together in no time flat. A sit-down dinner is one of the best ways to take a break from a busy life and reconnect, and with Ragu®, it’s really easy. I just head over to my local BJs Wholesale Club and snag everything I need to make dinner in a flash!
On days when I’m super rushed, I’ll just whip up some whole grain noodles and top them with Ragu® sauce. On those days when I have a bit of breathing room, I’ll brown up some beef or sausage, chop up some bell pepper and onion, and add a delicious Ragu sauce to that. With so many different types of Ragu sauces, I can hit up BJs Wholesale Club (which just so happens to be right down the street from where I live!) for all my ingredients and the Ragu® sauce that Angeline and I are in the mood for that night.
On top of being easy, it’s better for us than other options. I just recently started getting back into fighting shape, and at 17, Angeline is all about keeping herself fit, so easy can’t be junky. The last thing I want to do is throw some microwave dinner on the table and pack in the calories. Ragu® helps my daughter and I have a nice dinner together and still stay healthy. Each and every one of their pasta sauces have over a full serving of veggies in every 1/2 cup serving, and when you put that over whole grain noodles, you’ve got a fast, healthier dinner.
Busy Life. Happy Life
There have been some big changes for my daughter and I recently, and the last thing either of us need is more stress or any sort of distance between us. With Ragu®, we can take a break from our crazy busy life and reconnect over a dinner that’s delicious, fast, and healthier than other options.
