What do you get with another dreary night?

13 May

Thurday May 13th-    

 Well we did it! we stuck to our word, and woke up before school to have a yoga date with Jillian. That is right, it was 40 min. and intense. This whole week has consisted mostly of strength, but that is ok because I listened to my body and this is just what it needed.    

We completed level 1 of Yoga Meltdown on demand. This was just as intense as the yoga download we did on Tuesday. I loved it. The video is very aerobic. Jillian incorporates flowing yoga poses for repetitions, and then she holds each pose for 15 sec.. Each circuit was very challenging 😛 If you would like to see preview clips from the video click here.     




Jay Robb was more that generous and sent Whit and I each our own bag of goodies to review!    

Here is a little info. about Jay Robb straight from the website:    




“Jay Robb is a clinical nutritionist with nearly three decades of experience as a professional in his field. He is the CEO of Jay Robb Enterprises Inc.—a multi-million dollar corporation (founded in 1988), producing the best-tasting protein powders on the planet. Jay Robb products and books are sold in over 8,000 health food stores, grocery stores, wellness centers, doctors offices, and gyms across the nation. For your convenience we sell our entire product line here at http://www.jayrobb.com.”



I thought the tank top was so adorable. This is going to make such a cute top to go with my yoga capris!    


This mornings pick was the chocolate brown rice protein.    


  • 24g protein
  • vegan
  • non-GMO
  • made with stevia
  • only 110 calories for the pouch




Here is a little more history on the company:    


 And of course if we were making a Jay Robb shake then we had to put it in the BlenderBottle    


These bottles are awesome! There is a blender ball mixer inside.    

“Simply drop the BlenderBall wire whisk into the BlenderBottle along with your ingredients, screw on the lid, press down the flip top, and shake. The patented BlenderBall moves freely throughout the bottle as you shake, mixing the thickest ingredients with ease…”    


Protein Shake consisted of:
-1 cup coconut milk
-1/2 Jay Robb Chocolate pkt.
-1/2 banana
-1/2 tbs. pb
-1 tsp. chia
-3 ice cubes    


Served alongside our shakes was some Raisin Pecan Bread. I love all of the breads from Food For Life. This bread has the same texture as millet and tastes just as great!    


We topped our bread with greek yogurt, strawberries, preserves, almond butter, coconut, and granola!    


It felt good to have something else for breakfast this morning, besides oats.    


**Verdict: This just plain ol’ tasted like a chocolate shake. It did not give off that chalky after taste like most protein powders. I cannot wait to make some more creations with all of the other flavors!**

Mid-morning snack: Pumpkin Pecan Kashi
It has been far too long since I have had one of these bars! They are by far the best pumpkin granola bar you can get.

CAUTION: If you have school, you might want to opt. for a different bar. I forgot how sticky the pumkin filling on top was, lol. It was getting stuck to my teeth the every time I took a bite. It was not very pretty.     



Whit and I were much too tired to make a lunch last night so we packed a fozen meal, and the best darn one at that 😉    

Ok definitely do not shun healthy choice frozen meals. This was superb. I was literally licking the gravy from the plastic when I was done lol.    


Afterschool snack was a yogurt mess with the additon of Cherries!    




Well tonight has been another rainy dreary night, so Whist and I got creative and thought up a meal that we already had all of the ingredients for. That is right when it is cold, our turn to food is soup! So… on the menu tonight was Chili Verde! We followed this recipe.    


Look at all of those onions and jalapeno!    


Served alongside was our maple vegan cornbread and some things to scoop with: cheecha’s and kashi crackers.    


Well the whole family clearly loved this soup, because we already polished off the pot!    


Well, sleep is calling my name 🙂    

QOD: What are your go to meals on cold nights?

    Hey Girls,

    I just discovered health food blogs-and I really enjoy reading yours because I’m also a teenager! Anyways, I was really curious as to how you get receive all these great health food samples (for free?) from the companies. Do they send out samples to health food bloggers? Thanks for your help 🙂 🙂
