Week 4 begins now…

26 Apr

 Happy Happy Monday 🙂

        Hello Lovely people, how is your mountain of a monday going? I hope good! Ours has been pretty rad so far.

Check out what we made last night, it was Goji-Licious!

 In the mix:

  • 1/2 container of Chobani plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 container of Hunt’s butterscotch pudding
  • 1 tablespoon of apple granola
  • 1 tablespoon of Kashi heart to heart
  • 2 mini Goji chocolate chip cookies
  • 1 mini Goji Orange mint chip cookie

Viola, a delish satisfying Yogurt mess 😉

 Since it is Monday, we had a 5 AM wake-up call this morning. Breakfast was a simple hardy dish.

  • 13 PB puffins (to be specific. lol)
  • 1/2 cup of Kashi heart to heart warm Cinnamon
  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • Cinnamon
  • 1 tbs of silvered almonds
  • 1/2 cup almond milk

And to go with was 2 slices (50 cals each) of Sprouts Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bread.

 

 We decided we would hit up the gym after second period today, so Whit and I split this Boomi Bar beauty!

 **Verdict: Taste like cashew butter in bar form, which is awesome and very impressive

While at the gym, we completed:

  • 20 min of the eliptical at Incline of 3

  • 10 minutes of the bike at Incline of 3 

 

  • Bikini Body Shape-Up Circuit out of this months Fitness Magazine

 ~Wow, we we’re SWEATY! This whole workout today was good and challenging. Loved it!

When we got home, we stretched it out then tried a few sips out of this Sport OWATER.

 **Verdict: I love the all of the Sport OWATER flavors, I think they just simply taste better sweetened. Their unsweetened flavors don’t even compare to these ones, Tasty 🙂

 Then, it was time to make some Lunch cause that workout left our tummies rumbling! Last week, we got a nice package from Fiber Gourmet filled with a ton of their neat products.

This company is awesome, and sells healthier Pasta, Desserts, and crackers.

 And check out all the nutrition info all over the box. Needless to say, it is Chuck full of fiber and less calories than Traditional Mac&Cheese.

Explanation-As the Fiber goes up, the calories go down

 Also mixed into our Mac was:

  • Tofu
  • Spinach
  • chickpeas
  • Pepper

 And our classic go to side dish of splitting a Pink Lady Apple topped w/ Pumpkin, PB, and Cinnamon, oh my!

And now we’re going to prep lunch for tomorrow, then take a lovely Monday afternoon nap. Nothing beats an afternoon nap. 😉

Start of week 3 and Chobani Winner

19 Apr

Good evening! 

So how is everyone’s Monday’s going? The toughest day of the week is finally coming to a hault. Yay! And this is the start of week 3 of school. Yesterday Court and I worked from 8-3:30PM, and here were our eats:

Sunday Breakfast: POM Overnight Oats

In the mix:

  • 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup Chobani Pom greek yogurt
  • 2 tbs of Pom Kefir
  • 1/2 tbs Pom juice
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp chia seeds

Top:

  • 1 CranBran Vita
  • 1/2 tbs unsweetened Coconut
  • handful of kashi cereal

 AND then topped with one of these beauty’s!

 Cranbran was perfect to go with pom and berry flavors.

And  To pair we made ginger green tea lattes.

 Overnight oats are decadent as always 🙂

 Work was more than a lot to handle today, I’m telling you I cannot wait until I do not work in FAST FOOD! Don’t get me wrong bagels and Coffee is cute, there is just a HIGH demand from people. lol, esp. since we work at the busiest Einstein’s in the nation, TRUE FACT! Oh and by the way all of our stores are having contest for FREE iPods and gift cards, and so far it is looking very promising, YES!!! I could so use a new NANO.

Lunch was some amaaazzzing left over Tuna casserole with a clem and Raspberry Prana bar:

 The Baker’s at work left all of the dished from all day, Courtney and I were the only closers with our manager, and it took for freakin ever to leave. So by the time we got home we were HUNGRY! To fuel we had some millet bread topped with cinnamon, dark chocolate PB, drizzle of chobani pineapple yogurt, 1 strawberry, 1 walnut. To die for 😉

 

 Since the weather was extra nice today, our dad pulled out the barbeque and cooked up some yummalicious hamburgers, and some Lime Chee Cha’s went with that. I’m gonna be really sad when our CheeCha stash is gone, these things are Bomb!

 And now onto this morning. Yesterday we restocked the banana stash, so we put them to good use this morning. We made

Banana Bread Oats!

In the mix:

  •  1/3 cup oats, 1/3 almond milk, 1/3 water
  • 1 tsp chia
  • 1 tsp flax
  • 1 banana (half mashed and cooked in)
  • cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp Turbinado sugar

Top:

 And of course you guessed it Banana Nut Vita was the inspiration for this creation, mmm…

  More Vita’s Please 🙂 Vitamuffins=♥

 Packed today was another satisfying Raw Crunch bar for Mid-morning snack.

Verdict: We are still in love with these bars, they were perfect to hold us over till lunch. And, the Goji’s added a ton of flavor! 

 In the lunchbox:

  • A PB Sugar-Free Apricot Preserve Sandwich Thin
  • Cutie
  • Mixture of Pear, apple, and Stacey’s cinna-sugar chips

 

When we got home about 3:15, it was Snack time, so we used a banana cream pie yogurt to make a Yogurt Mess!

 *Not a fan of the Aspartame in these yogurts, but they got so many dang good flavors. 😦

After this Energizing snack, we proceeded to our Workout date with Jillan Michael’s, doing her 30 Day Shred level 2. Have you been shredded yet? After doing nothing but Cardio for 2 months with Insanity, the Strength parts of the Video killed us! I was happy that the Cardio portion was such a breeze, but my god 3 pounder weights have never felt so heavy. LOL my whole arm was shaking. I know not that Insanity is done, it is time to do some weight training, and AB work. So tomorrow were hitting the gym after second period. And I’m sure it will be a good sweat sessh, and it will be a reunion to the Treadmill. But I’m kinda excited to see how my stamina does.

 Karst made dinner for us all tonight, and the house smelled like delish Alfredo and Garlic. We had Chicken Alfredo with a Veggie Salad. So good, when do carbs not make a girl happy?

We also hopped on the Chia Pudding train tonight. This was our first time trying it, and I thought it was rather Yummy myself. Our special creation though was Mint Chocolate Carob Chia Pudding. Beat that! The flavor tasted just like Mint Chocolate Chip Ice-cream.

In the mix:

  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1/8 tsp mint extract
  • 1 pkt stevia
  • 1 spoonful of dark chocolate PB

 

Now to the Winner of the Chobani Giveaway, drumroll………….And the winner is…………….Christina from Hungry Meets Healthy Congrats! E-mail your shipping address to eatngroove@hotmail.com

Well, we’re off to go watch Alyssa Milano’s new Show. Peace Out!

XOXO Court & Whit ♥

Busy Busy Shopping Bees

Happy Hump Day!

 

We made it halfway through the week 🙂 Yay! Wednesdays are great, because that alarm does not go off until 5:30, that extra half hour of sleep is Glorious, and Much needed. We woke up casually, made breakfast, took our time getting ready, you know make the hair look cute, etc.

Our breakfast was StrawberryBananaPB oats, with a Steamer.

 

In the Mix:

  • 1/3 cup of old fashioned oats
  • 1/3 cup of almond milk, 1/3 cup water
  • ½ banana mashed in
  • 1 tsp chia seeds
  • 1tsp vanilla
  • 1tsp brown sugar

 

Toppings:

  • Other half of banana sliced
  • 2 sliced strawberries
  • ½ tbs of Creamy Peanut Butter

 In the Steamer:

  • 1 1/4 cup of skim milk
  • 1 pkt of stevia
  • Lots of Cinnamon

*Heat in the microwave for 2 min

 

After our slow morning, we headed to school for our only two classes of the day. Whit had American Lit Honors 1rst while I’m in Sports & Entertainment marketing, then we have second together which is US History. Fun Fun, school feels great when you get out at 10:45 AM every other day!

 After school, we rushed home, ate one of these fabulous Peppermint Stick Luna’s, brushed teeth, then headed to our dentist appointment which was at 12 and 12:30. When we walked in, the receptionist lady was quite rude, and was all “Umm, your guy’s appointment is not even tell 12:30 and 1!” So Whit gave her attitude right back and said “Well there was some new lady on the phone, who clearly did not know how to schedule an appointment, and she told our mom that something was wrong with the computer, then said our appointments were at 12 and 12:30.” The lady just continued with her attitude, and said “I don’t even know if we can get you guys in early now.” But sure enough, after like 15 min of having half the staff around the scheduling computer talking about who messed up, they finally led us to the BIG chair for our cleaning. Geez, we did not know getting our teeth cleaned would be such a hassle

After the dentist, we wanted some lunch, so we hit up one of our Favorite Local Cafe’s called Carino’s Cafe. And on the menu for today was a ham provolone sandwich on wheat with a small non-fat Butter Pecan Latte, can you say MMM..

We sat there awhile after eating, to sip our lattes, and think about what we should pick up at the store to make for dinner tonight. This place is great, and Whitney and I are officially regulars. Lol, the owner noticed we dyed our hair. Too Funny, I always notice the regulars at Einstein’s.

 Aww, look at the cute little design!

Hahaha, I got a pic of whit right after she just took a big bite.

 

When lunch was all gobbled up, we drove to Sprouts! It is the BEST health food store, that is within 5 min of home, GOTTA LIKE THAT 🙂

 

Following Sprouts we went to Albertsons, then a stop at Lowe’s to visit the MOMASITA at work. When we finally got home, the groceries were put away and it was time for a hard hour and 20 min workout, yikes! This last week of Insanity has to have been one of the sweatiest. After the sweat sessh, we refueled with some Gt’s Kombucha, then made some Din Din. The fab dish we decided on at lunch was Apricot glazed chicken from our new Hungry Girl Book, with some Whole Grain Couscous, and Veggies!

 

 

Whit made this scrumptious dinner, while I packed our lunches for tomorrow. It really does help when there is two of you. Lol Great minds think alike, and twins even more alike.

 

The flavors in this meal were amazing. This was out first time trying Apricot glazed Chicken, and it is an award winner in my book. So flavorful!  

QOD: Have you made an award winner meal lately? Share yours 🙂

 

Goodnight Wonderful People

XOXO Court and Whit ♥
