Rev Wraps: Fuel for My Family (+ Gift Card Giveaway!)

This year, I'm entering new territory.  I have a freshman in high school.

My son has been in the Jr/Sr High since 7th grade, but this September he'll officially be a 9th grader.  The grades count, the homework gets more real (it's been real, trust me) and his team commitments are much greater.  Football has unofficially started, with him being in the weight room and on the practice fields several nights a week.

Add this to his already large appetite, and the appetites of my younger three kids, and I don't know how I manage to keep food in the house.  I have four growing athletes, and it's safe to say there is always someone in the house who is hungry.

I try to remind all my kids, particularly my two sons and my twelve-year-old gymnast daughter, that food is energy.  My daughter practices 16 hours a week, and between practices and games my boys are on the field five nights a week.  They all need protein, and it's tough to find quick and easy snacks that they can grab on the go.  My kids won't get the energy they need if they eat out of vending machines or a drive thru every night.  I do my best to have plenty of healthy options in the house, but many nights we are rushing out the door.

It can be a recipe for disaster.

Lately we've been enjoying HORMEL® REV® Wraps.  I've seen these little wraps in the grocery store before, and I've thought about grabbing them many times.  A few weeks ago, when I was chosen for this campaign, I purchased a few on my dime. I wanted to know if the wraps were as delicious as they were convenient.


I was shocked.

Ever since, I have had REV® Wraps stocked in the fridge.  My preference is Pepperoni Pizza, my son's is the Bacon Club.  I've packed them for baseball games, gymnastics practices and my son has eaten them on the way to weight room.  Each wrap has at least 12 grams of protein, and they are made with real meat and cheese. 

These wraps beat a drive thru and they are fresh. I even bought a bunch for our road trip to North Carolina this month.

I'm thrilled I found an easy snack my entire family can enjoy that I don't have to feel guilty about.  I know my kids are getting what they need before or during each practice, and I even grab a REV® Wrap when I'm on the go.  REV® Wraps have literally become fuel for my family.

And trust me, we need it.


Now, for the fun stuff...
