Life with 2 teenage boys can be crazy! They eat a lot and are always on the go! Both my boys joined the high school ultimate frisbee team this last Spring. They had a really great time playing frisbee and we had a fun time watching them.
I was trying to find items for them that included a good amount of protein.
While it often gets credit for helping during periods of growth—childhood, adolescence, and pregnancy—it also plays key roles in metabolism, immune function, and tissue repair. It is found in every cell of the human body, so it is in our best interest to consume protein on a daily basis.” My youngest son also participated as a freshman this last school year for the high school swim team. He loved it but it was very demanding. Practice was everyday for 2 hours after school and then twice a week they had an hour workout session before school. Then you need to add in swim meets in to that crazy schedule.
I was always trying to find food that I could send with him to keep him fueled. It needed to be something that he could just take along with him to practice or keep in his bag when he was off to a swim meet.
I was excited to recently hear about the new HORMEL® REV® Wraps from as an option to send off with my boys at whatever activity they may be participating in. REV is designed to be easily eaten on the go and can be eaten either hot or cold. REV was developed to give moms and teens a more real option for snacking occasions – That’s why REV® Wraps are made with real meat, real cheese and has at least 12 grams of protein or more, so they are a great alternative to empty calorie snacks and are perfect for immediate, on-the-go consumption.
I picked up 7 of the flavors for my boys to try. We tried pepperoni pizza, ham & cheese, peppered turkey, ham & swiss, turkey and cheese, bacon club, and turkey ham & cheese. Of course the pepperoni pizza one was a hit. They also loved any of the varieties that included turkey. My boys just tend to favor turkey over ham any day. My husband even sampled them and asked if I could get him some to keep on hand at work.
As a mom, I like that HORMEL® REV® Wraps are made with real meat and cheese for real energy. They provide protein-packed sustainable energy that my active teens need to keep going. Each REV® Wrap has at least 12 grams of protein!
HORMEL® REV® Wraps. For those who are hungry™.
