One hot mess! YIKES

13 Jul

Tuesday July 13th!

Hey lovelies 🙂

Lately it has been hotter than blazes in our house so last night Whit and I needed something cold to cool us off. We thought to create a frozen treat with nothing other than Shakeology. This stuff rocks! If you skimped on veggies or greens during the day, then ya better drink up!
We call this Shakeology creation…
 Chocolate Mint Protein Ice Cream!

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 scoop choc. Shakeology
  • 1 tsp. instant coffee granules
  • 1/2 tbs. carob chips
  • 3 drops mint extract
  • sprinkle guar and xanthum gum
  • ice

Freeze for an hour and ENJOY!

 

This morning Whit and I were craving PANCAKES, protein pancakes that is! They are so yummy, satisfying and they kind of have a french toast texture. They never fail to impress me 🙂 Today we decided on raspberry, carob chip, coconut ones. The inspiration for these came from the ammazzing Pinkberry I had last month.

1. Start by pouring 1/2 cup of old-fashioned oats into a bowl.

 

2. Then add 3/4 cup of egg whites.

 

3. Next add 1 sweetener packet of your choice.

 

4. Then add 2/3 cup of raspberries!

 

5. 1/2 TBS. carob chips

 

6. 1 TBS unsweetened coconut

 

7. A little under 1/3 cup unsweetened apple sauce

 

8. Stir all of the ingredients together.

Then measure our 1/4 cup and pour into a skillet. When the edges start to bubble then flip the pancake 😛

This recipe should make 5-6 pancakes. ENJOY!

Paired with some iced Lipton Caramel Tea and this is a meal fit for a queen! lol.

We topped ours with some yogurt and a little brown rice syrup.

 

Well guys today it hit 100 degrees! So our mom FINALLY let us turn on the air conditioning in the house for the first time this Summer. Hallelujah! I swear I looked like a hot sweaty mess today. 

Our afternoon consisted of some 15 HITT action with the sistas, this odd lunch pair that I have been craving, and oh yeah some retail therapy!  

I swear Lean Pockets keep coming out with better and better flavors!

 Who says you cannot have a sweet potato with a Lean Pocket? In my world lunches like this always exist! lol.

 

I fueled myself with this cinna-puffin yogurt mess before leaving to SHOP! Let me tell ya’ on a hot day like today nothing feels better than shopping in a nice air-conditioned store. And plus you can get in some good cardio too! 😉

 

I was cravin’ something spicy for dinner tonight so I used some jalapeno hummus and made a grilled turkey wrap.

 Look at those awesome grill marks. This girl knows her stuff, huh!

Tomorrow is back to boring work. YUCK! But at least we do not have to close 🙂 All of your questions for our next vlog have gotten the creative juices flowing, so keep the questions coming!

    Yay for grill marks! I’m considering getting a panini press… any brand/model recommendations? And your protein pancakes look amazing. Loving the step-by-step 😉

      Hey wei-wei,
      We reccomend Cuisinart GR-4 Flat Griddler Grill & Griddle-Panini Press. It is the one we use, and it works wonderfully!

    Grill marks instantly make things look awesome! I can totally sympathize with the heat problem! Its been between 90 and 100 degrees in New Jersey for the last few weeks and super humid also! I don’t know what I would do with out air conditioning!

    That shakeology stuff looks pretty cool I may have to try it! And you pancakes look super yummy!

      You should try Shakeology! It is expensive, but if you use it in moderation then it is well worth the money. There are so many vitamins and nutrients packed into a single scoop. If you decide you are going to get it, order it from our sis at http://www.activeash.com

    Wow, those pancakes look delicious..almost like an omelette! And hurrahhhh regarding the air con! I’m the opposite here in scotland…my mum wont let us turn on the central heating until it’s about minus three hundred degrees outside! nightmare! xx
