This past weekend, we celebrated our country’s freedom and the honorable people that help protect it. It was great to see so many community festivals and posts online honoring our freedoms and being thankful for what we have as a country. To me, celebrations (no matter what the occasion) should always contain three important things: the reason you’re celebrating, those you love around you, and great food.

The other day I was making my usual grocery list, writing down the items without even thinking. Milk, coffee, creamer, cereal, bananas, veggies, meat, bread, cheese, granola bars, applesauce, and various other things.
The radio was playing in the background, and all of a sudden I hear this come across the airwaves…

“What we measure tends to improve.” Francis Beck regarded that quote as one of his favorites.
I am not sure who originally said this, or if this is even the original way in which it was stated. But what I have learned over my career here at Beck’s, and especially the last year or two, is that this is definitely a sentiment that I believe in.

I don’t know about you, but I always end up rushing out the door in the morning and grabbing breakfast last minute. For you, this could be Starbucks on the way to the office, donuts at the gas station on the way to the field, or Pop Tarts from the vending machine at school. In my case, my go-to breakfast is usually instant oatmeal or cereal, and while they are pretty healthy, they don’t always keep me full all morning. Oatmeal every day also gets boring, so I like to switch it up.
While searching Pinterest, I found a recipe for “Copycat Egg McMuffins” by Monica of The Yummy Life blog and knew I just had to try them! I love Egg McMuffins from McDonald’s, but it isn’t always convenient to drive to their restaurant every morning, especially with my busy schedule. Plus, with planting season in full swing, I thought this would be a healthy and EASY option to help ensure everyone gets a good breakfast before going out into the fields.
