~^~Look out General Mills~^~

27 Aug

So guess WHAT!?!

Today is Friday and NO SCHOOL! I have got to say, I am totally diggin’ this  new schedule 🙂 Last night was our second college class for the week… Art Apreciation. This class is also a Hybrid class so it goes from 6:00 pm – 8:40 pm. We have a girl teacher and her hair is black on top and gray on the bottom. Instantly when I saw her all that came to mind was Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians! It is funny, now we have a teacher that looks like santa claus and one like this haha! This class felt like it dragged on for a century. All that we did was open our textbook, and she went through all of chapter one in a 93 page slide show. Ashley took this class last semester and she said this is how every class is going to be. All I can say is with this new schedule, I will sit through anything! It is so weird, but everybody in college seems so much more accepting. The environment is not like highschool where everybody cares what you look like, how you dress, or how you act. Everybody in college just does not care anymore. I LOVE it!   

Wednesday night, Whit and I made egg-white burritos smothered with Green Chile Verde. You can find the recipe here. The only alteration we made was only adding one can of chicken broth.

Behold! This is one of our favorite new desserts. We took a caramel rice cake and topped it with pb+fluff!  

Then for Thursday morning’s breakfast we used this guy….  

 To make overnight oat’s in a cantaloupe. Whit and I got this idea from the lovely Iowa Girl Eats.

  • 1/2 cantaloupe seeded
  •  1/4 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 container of Siggi’s blueberry greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. flax
  • 1 tsp. chia
  • blueberries

Just put it in the fridge and top with your faves in the morning! I will definitely be making this again. So chewy, soft, and filling. YUM!

 I must say though, I think it was the Siggi’s yogurt that made this breakfast such a hit! It is literally the creamiest and thickest yogurt around. If it were not so expensive then I would probably buy it every time I went to the grocery store.

 This was yesterday’s snack at school. I ate this right before third period.

This is a definite pick me up bar when you are at school. And such simple ingredients: 

 

 Lunch was prepared pretty fast since we still had to work out and then get to our class.
A good ol’ hearty salad and a Kashi TLC cookie.  

 The salad included:

  • spinach
  • romaine
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • cherry tomatoes
  • purple onion
  • celery
  • goji berries
  • parsley cheese stick cubed
  • Annie’s Asiago dressing

 

Now let’s move on to breakfast today. Three Sisters Cereal provided us with these three cereals to review. This is a healthier option cereal for all ages and is sold at Whole Foods. All of their products are made using renewable energy and contain no trans fat, partially hydrogenated oil or phony flavors. After ripping open each bag right when we got them… they reminded me of all my favorite cereals: Honey Nut Cheerios, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Lucky Charms!

 

 

 After trying all of the cereals, Whit and I decided on the Marshmallow Oaties! Unlike Lucky Charms, this cereal did not give me a sugar high and crash. I loved the taste, nutritional stats, and ingredients. So TWO THUMBS UP! 😛

With some almond milk…. PERFECTION!

Of course we had to add in some extra protein.

 

Not only have we received some cereal, but look at the size of this package from Manna Bread! Can you say Carb Heaven, or what? This bread is super healthy and made with Sprouted grains rather than whole grains. The difference is there is a lot more of the Vitamins in this bread than regular while grain breads.

The ingredients that go into this bread are:

 

Our flavors Included:

* Banana Walnut Hemp

* Carrot Raisin

* Cinnamon Date

* Fig Fennel Flax

* Fruit and Nut

* Millet Rice

* Multi-grain

* Sunseed

* Whole Rye

First up to try was Cinnamon Date!

And using their serving tips, we heated it up in the microwave, and topped it w/ some Nut butter(Carmel sunland).

 This bread definitely did not taste as cinnamony and date as I was expecting, but topped with some pb it was perfect alongside this cereal 😉 It has a very cake-like texture too which I liked.

Hope you have a fun-filled Friday!

    Man your oats in the hollowed-out cantaloupe look sooo good. Trying that fo sho! I love Siggi’s too, but it’s close to $3 for one container of it here so I can’t get it that much.

    Glad you’re enjoying college and your new schedule!
