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 🙂

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
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 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?

Cheesecake Oats, oh my…

14 Jul

Good Afternoon friends 🙂

       Every Wednesday is a rest Day for the TURBO FIRE plan, so today no workout for these chicka’s, just sleep and work. How nice, I love rest days. And as a bonus we were not closers today, so we got out of work at 2 0′ clock sharp!

The Breakfast combo was Blueberry Cheesecake overnight oats with a Raw Cashew Crust

**Note- If you have never tried any of our overnight combo’s, this one is a true WINNER! Totally epic. lol..

>Step 1: Make the Crust

  • Soak 2 tbs of Raw Cashew(or regular) in a bowl of water for about 4-5 hours until softened
  • Drain water
  • In a food processor blend the cashews with about 6 pitted dates and a drizzle of agave
  • Press the newly mixed “paste” into the bottom of your bowl
  • set aside while mixing oat mixture

 >Step 2: Make Oat mixture:

-Mix together

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt
  • 2 tbs unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 pkt stevia/sweetener
  • 1/2 tbs of Jello Sugar-Free Cheesecake powder

>Step 3: Pour over crust

>Step 4: Top with frozen or fresh blue berries

>Step 5: refrigerate overnight

 

 Seriously it was so creamy and really tasted like cheesecake. A two thumbs up for this creation. Take a bite out of that! This morning we added chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of Kashi GoLean Crunch.

 Since we had work today, and really did not feel like packing anything, another snacky lunch like the other day came to the rescue. Seriously this lunch never fails, lol. It is easy, fast, and satisfying. Theses new Cookie Dough Larabars are the shizzz. Have you tried them yet? If you haven’t, they really taste like cookie dough, and now Court and I want to recreate them even better.

 With all this super HOT and humid weather today, a yogurt mess was in desperate NEED when we got off work. And I’m not even gonna lie, it was one of the best messes. The creative juices are flowing, and we know what is good today. The  combo included:

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 heated banana nut VITATOP
  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • 1 tsp Walden’s Calorie Free Carmel sauce
  • 1 tsp almond butter
  • sprinkle of silvered almonds
  • sprinkle of galaxy granola

 The name UliMana… What comes to mind?  

How about ~

Handmade, vegan, raw chocolate truffles, raw chocolate brownies, raw chocolate-dipped date rolls, nutritive cacao spreads, hot chocolate mixes, and superfood treats!

Yes, this company makes yummalicious healthy raw chocolate that is 100% Vegan friendly. And let us warn you 100% addictive. These chocolates taste fudgy like and amazing.

**VERDICT- We loved these chocolates, and are still becoming vegan lovers step by step. I do have to admit that we were a little iffey as to whether non-dairy chocolate would be as good as say milk or dark chocolate, but there was nothing to be worried about. They were creamy, fudge like, all-natural dessert. Mmm, more Vegan desserts please?

Haha, well I have no clue what to make for dinner, but the tummy is rumbling, and it’s time to go feed it. Oh  yeah Court and I got some really exciting news, and we will tell you all about it, if the plans go as followed. Have a great night, Vlog is in the works, and will probably be posted Friday night. Keep those q’s coming, this is fun.

Peace out Loves!

XOXO

>Update Dinner Pic: “Pizza” Veggie Salad with a toasted Alternative bagel. Yum! Decided that pizza sauce makes the best dressing on salad.

 

3 hours of brakes plus! no no no…

Tuesday 6/1/10

OMG Its June, and the last week of school! I never thought that I would get to finals week. It just seemed like the count down went on and on lol. Well since the weather has been in the mid- 80’s for the past two weeks, warm oats have been much too warm for these hott days. It has been making me overheat! So this morning I still had my oats, but they were some cold, soupy, overnight oats.

Here was the mix:

  • 1/2 cup of oats + 1/2 cup of almond milk(the night before to soak)
  • 1/2 cup of greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of bolthouse mocha drink
  • 1/2 apple nuked
  • cinnamon
  • pb

It looks like a swamp, but it tastes amazing! I think maybe some blueberry overnight oats are in store for tomorrow 😛

Look at that pool of goodness…

 

Today was our last “A” day for this year. So when we got out early we headed over to our big ol’ Einsteins and had my new fav….

 Peach Mango Bagel and Peach Mango cream cheese
This bagel is sooo good! It looks like a glazed donut, and it has got little pieces of dried peaches and mangos. It also kind of taste like some turbinado is in there. And then the cream cheese is to die for. I could literally eat this stuff off a spoon. It tastes like frosting with hints of pineapple. So yummy! This was probably not the best thing for you, but hey we’re teens and sometimes some things just have to slide 🙂

 

We got our lunch to go then we headed to the Brakes Plus down the street to get our car fixed. Over the weekend the struts got fixed which was $800 dollars, but then they told us the brackets needed fixing too so the guy only charged us for the labor and not the parts this time and that was another $240 dollars. There ya go just like that all these months I have been working just paid for those two things lol. Oh well it was well worth it because on the way home it was smooth riding, instead of our car sounding like it is going to break over every little bump. Plus this Summer when we are working full time, we will hopefully earn all of that money back in no time!

Our car ended up taking 3 1/2 hours to fix, so Whit and I just sat in the Cafe and worked on our History take home final test together(yes this is the only class that we have together at school). 

 

When we finally got home, around 4 o’ clock we were pretty hungry, so we both had an apricot heart.

**Verdict: I like this flavor more than the lemon poppyseed, but who knows it could just be that I am liking all of these tropical flavors today lol.

 

 

 

Check out Whits cute new outfit that she got from Abercrombie! I adore their actual clothes more than their brand name apparel.

 

So apparently there is a teen fitness magazine. Who knew right? So look at what they have going on, FREE gym memberships for teens 13-17. Check it out to see if your state has a FREE gym near you.

Have you ever wondered what a celebrity’s meal plan looks like? hmm maybe Ashley Tisdale by chance? After looking in an old magazine this is her eating plan:

  • Breakfast- Grapefruit, egg-white omelet, and whole-wheat toast
  • Lunch- Spinach salad w/ grilled chicken and an extra helping og veggies
  • Dinner- Fish or chicken w/ sautéed veggies
  • Snacks- Kashi bars, raw unsalted almonds, frozen grapes(which we have tried, and they are fabulous), or a plateful of veggies drizzled with honey
  • Fav. dessert A smoothie made with raw cacao, peanut butter, low-fat milk, a banana, and protein powder

Well, it is time to go make some dinner, and chillax. Hope all is well. What are everyone’s plans for the week/weekend?

XOXO Court & Whit♥
