Now that we’ve officially sprung forward, the days may seem longer, but our to-do lists don’t seem to get any shorter! Here are tips and the latest products out there to help us out.

In fact, it can feel like we need to accomplish even more in a day - and unfortunately the schedule just gets so jam-packed and frenetic that we often scramble for lunch or miss it all together, which is not good. That’s why we are loving the new Knorr Rice and Pasta Cups. They are quick, easy-to-make and super delicious for lunch, and ready in just two and a half minutes or less. The Knorr Rice Cups are made with 100% U.S. grown rice and are out now. They have 6-7 grams of protein per serving: and come in four yummy flavors; Three Cheese Mushroom Risotto, Garden Tomato Risotto, Fajita Rice, and Chicken Flavored Fried Rice. The pasta cups will start rolling out in April, in three flavors, these have 8-9 grams of protein per serving: Teriyaki Noodles, Spicy Korean-Style BBQ and Pad Thai. These cups are also made with 100% real vegetables.

The rice cups are great on their own but you can also take them up a notch and add some toppings like cheese or veggies. Also, avocado slices, mango salsa or sour cream are delicious in the fajita rice cups. While they’re ideal for lunch they’re a great and easy dinner too. Get them for just $2.99 at Walmart or grocery stores nationwide.

Other tips to try – get to bed an hour earlier to catch up on sleep. Lean into your personality, if not a morning person don’t push it. And if you are, try to get up an hour earlier and get more done. Plan ahead, write down agenda of things you need to get done for the next day such as laying your clothes out and setting the coffee so it’s ready when you wake up.
