Snowy and relaxing

7 Apr

 Yesterday while I was out shopping, I picked up a few goodies, including gingerale, so we could have pomades with dinner, and other things to make some treats for fellow bloggies. Our mom made some Ham fried rice, and we had a light fluffy roll, and carrots w/ humus to pair.

 

This was a delicious drink, and I have been wanting to see it, ever since visiting Kath’s blog.

 

Since this morning is Wednesday,  we got to sleep in till 5:30 because school starts later. When we first looked out the window it was barely snowing, but then when we were done with breakfast we looked out again to a white blowing storm. Our whole car and street is covered. And quite honestly, our little car will not make it to school. So today we are going to stay home and relax as well as get some stuff done.

Breakfast was another French Meadow Cinnamon Raisin BAGEL. On one side is skippy crunchy PB and pumpkin butter, and on the other side is honey almond cream cheese.

Paired was a yogurt Parfait, and some toffee coffee.

On top was another one of the granola’s sent to us by Bakery on Main. This flavor is Apple Raisin Walnut.

Verdict: Love love the dried apples in the mix. Perfect paired with tropical fruit.

Coffee:

  • 1/2 cup of almond milk
  • 1/4 cup of hot water
  • 1/2 cup of hazelnut coffee
  • 3 drops of stevia
  • 1 pkt stevia
  • 1 tsp of cappuccino mix

And the lunch that was packed today, but will now be eaten at home is a kitchen sink salad with half of a pink lady apple, and a “trail mix.”(Dried cranberries, dried pineapple, nuts, teddy grahams, and somersaults.) The dried pineapple came from one of the many packs that were sent to us. And I love the No added sugar part. Review is to come later.

Wake up and inhale French Meadow Bakery!

Thursday 4/1

Last night, we also recieved a package of French Meadow goodies! They were kind enough to send us:

  • Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bagels
  • Sprouted Grain Tortillas
  • Gluten Free Fudge Brownies
  • A really cute mug!

 

So this morning Whit and I decided to try the cinnamon raisin bagels  for breakfast 🙂 These bagels are a good source of fiber, protein, and they are vegan!

Look at this breakfast, a bagel never looked so healthy! This was definitely the breakfast we needed to help us power through our Insanity Max Plyo video(55 min.) today. I feel like I did much better with this video today than what I did last week, but I was still a pool of sweat lol.

 We topped the left half bagel with the rest of our pb loco white chocolate wonderful and strawberry preserves. The right half consisted of skippy all natural crunch pb and pumpkin butter. These were the best combos.

Bagel VerdictThese bagels were very thick and satisfying. They have a good wheaty taste alond with the yummy raisins. I felt better eating these than the ones from Einsten Bros. because these are actually made from all natural ingredients. I cannot wait to try the rest of these products. You can find them at almost any health foods store. I actually just saw them at Sprout’s for the first time yesterday Thanks again to French Meadow Bakery.

 Our breakfast was also served with our favorite green tea lattes….

 

And a yogurt parfait

It consisted of kiwi and some granola from Bakery On Main. They sent a few packs of granola and granola bars to review last week. The flavors included:

  • Gluten Free Apple Raisin Walnut
  • Gluten Free Nutty Cranberry Maple
  • Fiber Power Cinnamon Raisin
  • Fiber Power Triple Berry

*This granola is 100% natural, contains no artificial anything, no trans fats, and no refined sugars. Sign me up!

Cinnamon Raisin Granola was the chosen one this morning to go along with our cinnamon raisin bagel hehe.

GRANOLA VERDICT: This granola has just the right hint of sweetness. It tasted like it was homemade instead of store bought. I loved it. The only downfall is I wish there was more in the package. Overall though, I would definitely buy this granola again.

Well Whit and I have plans to go to Subway with our mom today on her lunch break, so that should be relaxing. Other than that my day is completely clear just to relax.

 

QOD: What have your spring break plans consisted of?
