Join us for Thanksgiving

26 Nov

 Hey Guys,

   So the nice people over at Vitalicious, sent us a whole 12 pack of their new Apple Crumb Vita-tops, and lets just say there are not many left in the box as of now. This is seriously the best flavor they have ever came out with. I felt like I was eating a delicious Fat-filled Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake. Delish! 10/10! What you guys think? Have you tried them yet?

 

Our first sample of these was mashed into PB Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal, which was awesome. Another way we loved these Vita’s was heated up in the microwave for 25 seconds, and then smeared with crunchy Peanut Butter 🙂

Now, Let us give you a look into Thanksgiving at our house…

“Hey Guys, come on in.”

Our sister Karstee has a bunch of cute holiday decorations, so we got out these little Pilgrim people to be festive!

Instead of cooking our turkey in the oven, we slow cook it all day long. And all these preparations in the kitchen would not be possible without some awesome Christmas music.

Now lets look at what we were serving up this year…

  • Turkey (It’s not like the movies, or magazine pretty ever lol)

  • Green Beans

  • Cranberry Sauce

  • Candied Sweet Potatoes

  • Veggies & Dip

  • The Famous Butt Rolls(Put two together in the muffin pan, and they cook up looking like butts, hence the name)

  • Mashed Potatoes and Gravy
  • Sage Stuffing
  • Chicken Stuffing

Fill that plate up good 😉

Make your way to the candle lit table

Pour yourself some sparkling Pear Cider

Then Enjoy time with the family. We always go around and say what we are each thankful for.

Then, play a few games(Scategories was this year) while enjoying the classic dessert of Pumpkin pie 😉

 Finally, the night was concluded with watching “While you were Sleeping” (With Sandra Bullock). And then we went to sleep at about 8:30 in order to wake up at 11:30. We were crazy enough to get only 3 hours of sleep, and then hit up Old Navy at Midnight for some Black Friday deals. From there we went to Kohls, JCpenny, Sams Club, Wal-mart, TJMax, Sports Authority, and finally home by 7 AM for a LOOONNNG Nap! We got some awesome stuff 🙂

Now I want to know, what is one of the Top things on your wishlist this Holiday season?

Just when you thought coffee couldn’t get any better

23 Nov

 You probably already know how crazy of Coffee lovers we are, and when it comes to energy, we are always on the lookout for anything NEW! Typically everyday we will start the morning with a cup of coffee, make a double shot latte at work, or drink a 5-Hour Energy. Any coffee we usually drink has the effect of a caffeine crash after.

I don’t know if you guys have met Jessica yet, but she is a gorgeous 19-year-old Sophomore in college, who looks fashionable everyday, makes delicious eats (including her famous loaves), and just happens to be involved with a company that sells Healthy Organic Coffee. Being the great blogger friend she is, she sent us some of this coffee to sample.

 There is…

  • Gourmet Instant Latte
  • Instant Mocha
  • Instant Black Coffee

The main ingredient found in OrganoGold Healthy Coffee is Ganoderma Extract:

  • Ganoderma is a Chinese mushroom that has been used in Chinese medicine for over 4000 years and delivers miraculous health benefits. The Ganoderma in OrganoGold healthy coffee is 100% Certified Organic
  • Some people take ganoderma extract to improve the function of their kidneys. It can also be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, eliminate insomnia and stress or lessen the side effects of chemotherapy.
  • It has been shown to promote the delivery of nutrients throughout the skin and even aid in the repair of skin that has been damaged due to overexposure to the sun.

How can OrganoGold Coffee be healthy?

Very Low Caffeine Regular coffee has approximately 135 mg of caffeine.

Tea has approximately 50 mg of caffeine.

A Diet Coke has 46 mg of caffeine.

One ounce of dark chocolate has 22 mg of caffeine.

OrganoGold Healthy Coffee has just 9 mg of caffeine.

Non-Acidic Coffee is too acidic, so unfortunately many people must avoid coffee or limit the number of cups they drink in a day.

Most coffee has a pH of 5.5

OrganoGold Healthy Coffee has a neutral pH between 7.3 and 7.5

What else can this healthy coffee do for you?

Standard Coffee                                             Healthy Coffee

>Very Acidic and Toxic                                      >Balances pH levels

>Raises Blood Pressure                                  >Natural detoxification

>Weakens Immune System                             >Strengthens immune system

>Dehydrates                                                        >Oxygenates the body

>Raises Stress Levels in the body                 >Provides calm energy

>Coffee jitters/caffeine crash              >No jitters /crash due to Ganoderma

 Ganoderma has had a tremendous impact in the health community. After reading through this newspaper, Courtney and I were both just amazed by the results people have gotten. There are stories of no more PMS, headaches, lowered blood pressure, no more back pain, and most of all a dramatic increase in energy.

 On Sunday morning, we chose to sample the Gourmet Instant Latte first!

 With a Tablespoon of Coffee Mate’s Toffee Nut Creamer, 1/4 cup of steamed milk, 1 cup of hot water, a swirl of Whip Cream, and a dash of cinnamon, this was an Ultimate Latte! Better than Starbuck’s Toffee Nut Latte, I might add. lol.

This Yummy latte was paired with some Berry Patch Oats.  

 Mondays sampling included trying the Gourmet Instant Mocha.

Overall, this coffee taste awesome, and we loved the results. Those results included feeling extremely energized(No caffeine crash, was able to power through a HUMUNGO workout, as well as write an 8 page paper), felt like a cleanse for the body(won’t go into too much detail with that, but I’m sure you get the idea…lol), did not feel dehydrated like coffee usually can feel like, and no runny nose or allergy like symptoms for two days which I feel like I experience frequently.

This coffee was awesome you guys. TRY IT NOW! To purchase click here.

This morning, I had a hair appointment at the salon at 9 AM, so Court and I stopped by Starbucks on the way there for Carmel Brule Latte’s, and Apple Bran Muffins. Ultimate Combo 🙂

Court and I got haircuts this week in case you can’t tell. Isn’t her houndstooth jacket so cute?! I think so.

We wouldn’t be ditching school or anything…Dad said it was okay to have a sluff day. I mean we’re seniors okay, and my hair really did need those highlights. lol 🙂 Right?

 Lunch was nothing too special, pretty much just random due to absolutely nothing in the fridge! With that said mommy girl gave us her debit card after lunch, and then we did all the grocery shopping for the week, both for Thanksgiving, and necessities.

For Dinner, Court whipped out this awesome dinner for us while I am working on this post. There is a Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla, salad, and sweet potato fries.

Holiday excitement/anxiety is…

2 Nov

Slowly creeping up on me!

Does anyone else feel it? Today is November 2nd. I cannot believe how fast October passed! Today all I could think about is how much x-mas shopping I still have to do, school work until finals, our 18th b-day approaching, and of course the baby will be here to in a few weeks! I am excited and stressing at the same time 🙂 Speaking of x-mas shopping, I cannot wait until BLACK FRIDAY! Do you guys like shopping on that day? I do not know what it is, but something about waking up at the but crack of dawn and running like crazy to catch all of the great sales… just gives me a high!

Breakfast this morning was P-R-O-T-E-I-N Oats!

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup almond milk, 2/3 cup water
  • 1 tsp. chia
  • 1 tsp. flax
  • 1 tbsp. shakeology
  • 1 tbsp. caramel toffee fudge whey protein
  • 2-3 drops vanilla stevia
  • 2/3 drops maple extract

Top with

  • egg puff(2 egg whites)
  • dollop Jiffy All Natural pb
  • Kashi Go-Lean Crunch- Honey Almond Flax
  • 1 dried fig chopped up

After breakfast digested then it was time to do some boot camp: This is one of Fitnessista’s workouts from this month!

-Warm up 5 min cardio of choice (Whit and I did the warm-up from Insanity)

Superset 1: Bicep curl and tricep dip (15 of each, repeat 3 times)

Superset 2: Step-ups on the right (10), on the left (10), sumo squat and crunch (10), left (10)– repeat 2 times

Cardio blast: 5 min. Start at an easy jog or walking pace with 5-6% incline. Add 1% incline every minute until you have reached 5 min (if you need to take it down before then, do it)

Superset 3: Pushups (12- start in full plank and drop to your knees to finish if you need to), bent-over wide row (15)- repeat 3 times

Superset 4: Stability ball back extension (12-15) and Stability ball crunch (hold a weight at the ends with both hands,keeping your arms close to your ears to make it more challenging- 15)- repeat 3 times

Cardio blast: 5 min sprints. Go for 1 min at an easy pace, 30 seconds at a very challenging pace, alternating for 5 minutes total.

Bent over fly and dumbbell front raise (15 of each)- repeat 3 times

-Cool down (5 minutes), stretch.

This whole work out took about an hour and Whit and I were drenched! I never got bored the whole work out. This was a good work out to confuse the muscles 🙂

 

Lunch was a GIANT salad and Pumpkin Apple Sauce Mess:

  • Romaine/ Spinach
  • Cucumber
  • Bell pepper
  • Carrots
  • Red Onion
  • Lentils
  • Quinoa
  • Mushrooms
  • Spike
  • Hummus
  • Italian dressing

Who ever said salads are gross…. obviously does not know how to make one like this! 😉

Unsweetened apple sauce, pumpkin, raisins, kashi, graham cracker, AB, and heated up! This one smelled like pumpkin pie…. so good.

Well lovely’s,

I’m off to relax and maybe watch some Dawson’s Creek. I am obsessed! Do you have any shows you watch on DVD? Tell me about it!
