Snooze News

18 Feb

Hey Guys!  

It has been a busy few weeks that have included a lot of changes. You may have noticed that our blog was down for a while, and that was just a misunderstanding with wordpress. So we are back up and running smoothly again. ūüôā We have missed you, and have some fun things to share.

First up, meet Dave!

¬†This cutie is not only my work husband, but he is also an awesome friend who happens to share the same interest in healthy eating/living. As of recently, Dave has actually started his own blog called Balanced Earth, where he discusses a¬†”¬†variety of subjects including: organic foods, environmental impacts of our decisions, why money is no longer needed, corporations and their need to control the world and finally how we can become balanced human beings in our daily life.”

It has been a while since we have done a food review, so instead of doing a product, this time we decided to take you guys on a fun adventure to a locally owned A.M. Eatery called Snooze. This was our first time going there, and my work hubby Dave made a great date to join Courtney and I.

As soon as we walked in, the place was hoppin’. Every table and bar stool was taken. There was even a line of people just waiting to put their name on the list. The whole restaurant was decorated with fun colors and designs. There were round booths everywhere, including the one we sat at in the middle of the restaurant. Everyone was very friendly, and the workers all had their own unique style to their uniform.

 

Everything on the menu sounded mouth-watering! Sometimes I think Court, Dave, and I are triplets, because instantly we all wanted to get the Snooze Continental. (Pictured Below)

So that we could try more than one thing, Court got this, and I decided to get the Red Velvet Pancakes.

¬†Snooze Continental: “Our housemade¬†granola, local Noosa¬†yogurt, and an agave nectar drizzle, alongside a grapefruit brul√©e with your choice of toast. So European, yet Coloradoan.”~Verdict: *****This dish deserved 5 stars. First off, if you ever are in Colorado, you must try Noosa¬†yogurt. It is luscious, and is probably some of the best yogurt I have ever had. Then, the grapefruit brulee¬†tasted like a decadent dessert.

Red Velvet Pancakes!!!! WHAT!?*&$

”¬†Red Velvet Pancakes Dive into our red velvet buttermilk pancakes, with a touch of cream cheese frosting, praline syrup and chopped pecans.” Verdict- All I can say is hello YUMMY. Red Velvet anything is delicious, and these were insanely good. When they brought it out, I started laughing, because seriously one of the pancakes was bigger than my head.

It would not be a day for these Chicka’s without some Coffee in out life, so you know what we ordered. Caramel Lattes.

¬†If you’re looking for a fun delicious place to go have breakfast or brunch, check out Snooze. It is 100% Court&Whit approved.

¬†Some of our other eats as of lately have looked like a healthy “Kid style” Lunches

 The sweet and savory combo of a homemade French Toast Bagel Egg Sandwich. Agave Nectar, and egg beaters were the frosting on this creation. And just like we do at work, we grilled it up on the Panini Press.

Have you guys tried the new Pumpkin Spice flavor Vita-Tops?  We did! For all you pumpkin pie lovers out there, you must try them. Guilt Free, and so many possibilities.

Keeping it short and sweet.

QOD-What are some of your favorite Healthy Creations as of lately? (Recipes, Products, etc)

What is your take on Vitamins?

5 Jan

¬†So for about the past three weeks, Courtney and I have been vitamin/supplement free, just to see the effect it would have on our body. We were trying to let our¬†body’s¬†take in nutrients on their own naturally by¬†just simply¬†eating healthy food and exercising.

The Result: Excessive tiredness, mood swings, grogginess, irregular down there, and breakouts to the skin. So basically, we are FOR SURE firm believers in taking some vitamins/supplements to aid your overall health ūüôā

Currently, we take a kid gummy vitamin with a Vitamin-B 50 Complex pill right when we wake up, and a Biotin pill at lunch. The whole combo is energizing, and a better addition to the body after 3 weeks of no Vitamins. QOD: What is your take on Vitamins/Supplements?

Breakfast this morning consisted of Strawberry- Banana Overnight Oats:

-In the mix-

  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1/2 tsp flax seeds
  • 1 6 oz container Chobani Strawberry Greek yogurt

  • 1/2 sliced banana

Toppings:

  • Kashi GoLean crunch
  • Figs
  • Special K cereal
  • Skippy All Natural Honey PB
  • PB filled Pretzels

*All Served alongside some Sugar-Cookie Tea*

 Snackage: Kashi TLC Honey Almond Flax Bar + CUTIE!

 Lunch:

  • French Toast Bagel(smeared with Honey PB, and Pumpkin Cream Cheese
  • Egg Beater Scramble

 Toffee protein Pancakes from this recipe that we created in the summer.

 All meals today were pretty much breakfast oriented, but who does not love breakfast? Right?

* Workout of the Day-Turbo Fire:Fire 30*

New year, Happier Us

4 Jan

Hey Guys!¬†It’s finally¬†2011!¬†

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† You have no idea how long we have been wanting to say that. We now are in our last semester of Senior year, and then it is Graduation time in May! Yay ūüôā We are beyond excited to get out of high school and into the real world.

Here is my 2010 wrapped up with a FB post:

¬†It would not be a new year without a make-over right? Our boss at work has a Gay best friend who works for a salon, and he just happened to hook us up with some really cute hair ūüôā

For me that included some edgier highlights

Auburn with bright blonde 

 And for Court that meant some Dark Brown. I think the color was Espresso.

 Oh, and since there were some requests to see our new piercings here they are:

For Whit: Cartlidge & Nose

 And for Court: just the Nose

 Here is a Close up on my cartilage:

 Our two weeks of Winter break looked a little something like this, with crazy hours of work every single day! Yikes, you know there was a lot of post-work naps in there. lol

¬†Luckily, we are now in Shift Leader training, with the promise of a raise. You gotta love having a dollar raise at work. ūüėČ

 Magazine reads as of lately:

¬†I love Black&White¬†photos, so Court and I had a picture-taking Fiasco one day ūüôā They ended up great to update old picture frames with in my bedroom.

 The last time we washed our car was the Summer, and look at it today. How clean right? The Tink-mobile was past due for a car wash, and now look at her sparkle in that Beautiful Colorado Snow.

 With a ton of new clothes and gifts from Christmas, it was time to clean out the closets. We ended up with TWO big bags of clothes to giveaway!

 Amazing lunch of today included:

Wrap:

  • Italian&Herb Flatout Wrap
  • 1/2 Light swiss Laughing Cow Wedge
  • Spike
  • 1 Italian Morningstar Patty
  • broccoli
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Salad Toppers
  • Chiquita Garlic Chile Hot Sauce

1/2 Gala Apple:

  • ¬†1 TBS Crunchy Sprouts PB
  • Cinnamon

 

¬†Now let’s get to the awesome Gifts/Purchases of lately:

Mom and Dad are awesome, and got us each an HP Laptop for our B-day! (Dec. 18th)

 They are so fast, and totally awesome!

 Houndstooth and Juicy Couture Boots

¬†After seeing these Sperry’s¬†in Meg’s Youtube Video, I wanted them so bad, and then Court bought them for me for Christmas. They are so are metallicy, and so adorable!

 Burlesque OPI Nail Polish

 Total Glam!

 This Chi Hair straightener is AMMMAAZINNG! Seriously, it straightens so fast and smoothly.

 I think Gold things were really a fav. this Christmas, because Courtney bought me this Gold Metallic Messenger bag from Charming Charlies.

 This Stuff Smells Delicious, and makes your cheeks super sparkly.

¬†Juicy Couture Perfume(Got a million Compliments about how good I smell, while wearing this. And at work they were all 3 different guys that were like “Whit you smell really nice today.” Ha thanks I know. lol)

¬†Love Culture is a cheap high fashion store kind of like Forever 21, and I got Court this Glammed out belt there. She loved it ūüôā

 Her new nickname is now sparkle!
