Eats a healthy breakfast (but didn’t always)
Jeff, his wife MacKenzie, and their kids eat breakfast together. Contrary to earlier in Jeff’s life, the food on his family’s table is healthy. Jeff used to eat cinnamon rolls for breakfast. “I would wake up in the morning. I would preheat the oven to 375. I would get the baking sheet. I would crack open the Pillsbury biscuits and place them on there…with butter. And I would eat the whole can,” Jeff told his brother, Mark, during an interview.
Hint: Jeff likes to surprise his wife.
