You wanna know something scary…?

7 Aug

Did ya ever think that there was someone out there that was so much like you… it was kind of creepy? lol Well let me introduce you to Ben. He is a fellow healthy foodie fighting to change the teenage perception of what “good food” really is. Ben has already started a “food revolution” at his school.  And get this he is only a JUNIOR in high school! It was plain and simple for him. He was fed up with the junk food and sweets in the cafeteria and in the vending machines so he did something about it. Ben met with Food Services about changing the menu and food offerings, and they are all for it! He met with Food Services about changing the menu and food offerings, and they were all for it. I wish I had the guts to something like that 🙂 They are even going to start selling his recipe for granola.(How awesome would it be to be able to sell one of your own recipes!)

Ok… ok now this is where the scary part comes in. He works at a bakery too! Anyways I thought I would inform you all of this fabulous revolution. If you would like more info. about it visit here

Today has been the best Saturday, not too hot and not too cold. So you know what that means perfect running weather! After breakfast Whit and I laced up and ran on the trails around our house until we got to the farthest park. Once we got to the park Whit and I ran sprints in the grass. Have you ever ran sprints across an unmoved field? There is only one word to describe it PURE RESISTANCE! My lunges definitely got a workout. After all of that running we were burned out so we walked home and did Jillian’s Yoga Meltdown on demand.

 

For breakfast this morning we visited an old friend: Cereal and AB toast!

 

LUNCH:

An egg puff…

And a green tea frappe!

Gotcha! It was a green monster 😛

Serves 1:

  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1 scoop chocolate amazing grass
  • 1/2 tsp chia seeds
  • 1 tsp flax oil
  • 1 tbs chocolate better n’ pb

 

Snack: A yogurt mess never fails 🙂

 

After lunch Whit and I went back to school shopping. We went to Target and spent hours there! When we got back our dad was like, “Where’d you go after Target?” No where. Target has anything and everything. When ever Whit and I go there it is a whole day’s event. We can spend hours there. Check out all of the goodies we bought: 

Brand new planners!

A smokey eye kit. It was cheap, but I have heard a lot of good reviews about this kit.


A military jacket! This was screaming Whit’s name.

And lastly a pair of boot cut jeans 🙂

 

Dinner was a veggie filled wrap and fruit salad.

 

I LOVE sprouts! They are perfect in a wrap, on a sandwich, in a salad, ect.

 

Oh and before I go, it is my turn to bring my guns into this show! Have you brought yours yet?

 

Got to get some sleep before work in the AM!

P.S. tomorrow’s the last day to enter our Namaste giveaway!

Namaste = Giveaway!

30 Jul

Do you love cupcakes as much as Whit and I do? We have been addicted to the new show “DC Cupcakes” on TLC lately. Katherine and Sophie are sisters and they own a cupcake show called Georgetown Cupcakes. These ladies are unbelievably talented. I think it would be incredible to have a job where you decorate cupcakes all day. Especially with your sister! How cool is that 🙂 Everytime I watch this show it makes me want to bake… and that is exactly what we did last night!  

 

 

Namaste Foods recently gave Whit and I the option to sample two products for free. So after debating over the many amazing products that this company offers, we decided on their Toffee Vanilla Frosting Mix and their Muffin Mix.

 Namaste is a company dedicated to creating delicious allergen free foods.
-Their products contain no wheat, gluten, corn, soy, potato, dairy or nuts.

You get more for your money.
-All of Namaste cake mixes contain two rounds as opposed to one in traditional cake mixes.

For more info. about this company visit: https://www.namastefoods.com/shopping/storefront/cgi-bin/news.cgi?Category=About%20Us

 

Whit and I decided to put these two products to use by making iced toffee nut muffins. I prepared the muffins while Whit made the frosting.  

 Let’s first take a look at the ingredient list. I was in awe that such a simple ingredient list could whip up such awesome cupcakes! With this ingredient list, I just followed the directions on the back of the package verbatim. It said to add eggs and water so I did. I did not want to chance messing up anything.

 These nutritional stats rock!

While the muffins were in the oven I decided to snap some pictures of the frosting!

 Once again such a simple ingredient list 😉

 

Homemade frosting is the best! And it is so fun to make…

Just look at that thickness… this is what you call REAL frosting!

 

 Once the muffins came out of the oven then I let them cool.

 Can you see the melted toffee chips?

 

Once the muffins were cool Whit and I had a frosting party and went to town. It is crazy but there is no way to frost ugly with this frosting. You just slather it on and it molds to the muffin perfectly!

 I must say that these take the cake lol!

 The frosting MADE these muffins. I saw Namaste foods the other day at Whole Foods so I definitely will be buying this frosting again for the next big event. Seriously guys if you want to impress somebody with a delicious homemade cake or cupcakes then buy this frosting mix! When I first looked at the ingredient list I was a little skeptical, but this really tastes like Toffee! YUM 😛

 

I do not know what it is about Fridays, but Whit and I always end up having pancakes or waffles! This mornings special was Van’s Belgian Waffles. We topped ours with plain greek yogurt, pumpkin, stevia, chocolate pb, and kashi.

 Fridays are the best 🙂

 

Today Whit and I went shopping with our mom all day. We went all over town looking for baby shower stuff. The shower is not until October, but there is so much to do! The party is going to be at our house. My mom always likes everything to be perfect so we have to start shopping when there are good deals, getting the house in tip-top shape, and planning. It is fun but also stressful. When we got home from shopping Ash was taking a nap. She had work all day so she was exhausted, but being the good sisters that we are we dragged her out of bed to workout. lol 🙂

 

For dinner we had chicken tacos. When you do not know what to make then tacos never fail in this household. We found the new Sun-Dried Tomato Laughing Cow so that is what I put in my taco. It was superb! 

 

 Now on to some more EXCITING NEWS! The lovely Sally Richards at Namaste foods not only was generous enough to allow us to review her companies products, but to hold a giveaway 🙂
