Just when you thought coffee couldn’t get any better

23 Nov

 You probably already know how crazy of Coffee lovers we are, and when it comes to energy, we are always on the lookout for anything NEW! Typically everyday we will start the morning with a cup of coffee, make a double shot latte at work, or drink a 5-Hour Energy. Any coffee we usually drink has the effect of a caffeine crash after.

I don’t know if you guys have met Jessica yet, but she is a gorgeous 19-year-old Sophomore in college, who looks fashionable everyday, makes delicious eats (including her famous loaves), and just happens to be involved with a company that sells Healthy Organic Coffee. Being the great blogger friend she is, she sent us some of this coffee to sample.

 There is…

  • Gourmet Instant Latte
  • Instant Mocha
  • Instant Black Coffee

The main ingredient found in OrganoGold Healthy Coffee is Ganoderma Extract:

  • Ganoderma is a Chinese mushroom that has been used in Chinese medicine for over 4000 years and delivers miraculous health benefits. The Ganoderma in OrganoGold healthy coffee is 100% Certified Organic
  • Some people take ganoderma extract to improve the function of their kidneys. It can also be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, eliminate insomnia and stress or lessen the side effects of chemotherapy.
  • It has been shown to promote the delivery of nutrients throughout the skin and even aid in the repair of skin that has been damaged due to overexposure to the sun.

How can OrganoGold Coffee be healthy?

Very Low Caffeine Regular coffee has approximately 135 mg of caffeine.

Tea has approximately 50 mg of caffeine.

A Diet Coke has 46 mg of caffeine.

One ounce of dark chocolate has 22 mg of caffeine.

OrganoGold Healthy Coffee has just 9 mg of caffeine.

Non-Acidic Coffee is too acidic, so unfortunately many people must avoid coffee or limit the number of cups they drink in a day.

Most coffee has a pH of 5.5

OrganoGold Healthy Coffee has a neutral pH between 7.3 and 7.5

What else can this healthy coffee do for you?

>Very Acidic and Toxic                                      >Balances pH levels

>Raises Blood Pressure                                  >Natural detoxification

>Weakens Immune System                             >Strengthens immune system

>Dehydrates                                                        >Oxygenates the body

>Raises Stress Levels in the body                 >Provides calm energy

>Coffee jitters/caffeine crash              >No jitters /crash due to Ganoderma

 Ganoderma has had a tremendous impact in the health community. After reading through this newspaper, Courtney and I were both just amazed by the results people have gotten. There are stories of no more PMS, headaches, lowered blood pressure, no more back pain, and most of all a dramatic increase in energy.

 On Sunday morning, we chose to sample the Gourmet Instant Latte first!

 With a Tablespoon of Coffee Mate’s Toffee Nut Creamer, 1/4 cup of steamed milk, 1 cup of hot water, a swirl of Whip Cream, and a dash of cinnamon, this was an Ultimate Latte! Better than Starbuck’s Toffee Nut Latte, I might add. lol.

This Yummy latte was paired with some Berry Patch Oats.  

 Mondays sampling included trying the Gourmet Instant Mocha.

Overall, this coffee taste awesome, and we loved the results. Those results included feeling extremely energized(No caffeine crash, was able to power through a HUMUNGO workout, as well as write an 8 page paper), felt like a cleanse for the body(won’t go into too much detail with that, but I’m sure you get the idea…lol), did not feel dehydrated like coffee usually can feel like, and no runny nose or allergy like symptoms for two days which I feel like I experience frequently.

This coffee was awesome you guys. TRY IT NOW! To purchase click here.

This morning, I had a hair appointment at the salon at 9 AM, so Court and I stopped by Starbucks on the way there for Carmel Brule Latte’s, and Apple Bran Muffins. Ultimate Combo 🙂

Court and I got haircuts this week in case you can’t tell. Isn’t her houndstooth jacket so cute?! I think so.

We wouldn’t be ditching school or anything…Dad said it was okay to have a sluff day. I mean we’re seniors okay, and my hair really did need those highlights. lol 🙂 Right?

 Lunch was nothing too special, pretty much just random due to absolutely nothing in the fridge! With that said mommy girl gave us her debit card after lunch, and then we did all the grocery shopping for the week, both for Thanksgiving, and necessities.

For Dinner, Court whipped out this awesome dinner for us while I am working on this post. There is a Buffalo Chicken Quesadilla, salad, and sweet potato fries.

Back to reality….

13 Jun

 

6/13/10

Hello Lovelies!

This morning we woke up at 6 am. Yup you heard me right. This is the first summer that we have jobs and actually have to wake up early all summer. It is time to grow up and face reality. If  you want to have more responsibility, pay for fun things, have a car ect. then let me spell it out for you….. you need a j-o-b! I feel so grown up. Whit and I are getting between 35-40 hours a week this summer. We were the only two out of our whole family that had to get up and go to work this morning. It kind of sucked, but money is money(ya know what I mean).

 

Well enough work talk and on to breakfast….
it was a pb chocolate banana smoothie with some dry cereal

We put our smoothies into these new Starby’s tumblers that we got. They are so awesome!

In the mix, SERVES 2:

  • 1 EAS vanilla protein light milk(110 cal carton)
  • 1/4 cup skim milk
  • 2 frozen banana’s
  • 1 fat-free sugar-free diet hot cocoa packet
  • 1 1/2 tbs. pb
  • 6 ice cubes

 

After breakfast we got ready for work. Do you like my new eyeshadow it is called Asphalt from Aromaleigh. We took Kristi’s suggestion for some make-up and purchased this companies mineral foundation and a few eyeshadows. I am totally lovin’ this make up! Thanks for the suggestion girly 🙂

 

And look at Whit, even though we were back at work the next day from our vacation, she still has a  🙂  on her face! 

 

We are not going grocery shopping until Wednesday, so we had to make do with what we had. Lunch was a humus, bell pepper, spinach wrap served alongside some grapes and a chocolate pretzel granola bar.

 

After work, we ate a quickie snack then completed Chalene Extreme Burn Interval Circuit and Extreme Ab’s. Let me tell ya, I do not know if it was just from standing on my feet all day at work and fatigue, but Chalene kicked my butt. Everything is sore.

**Verdict: These little hearts never fail to fight off my hunger. Apple was yet again a great flavor. I have not found one flavor I have not loved yet!

Heat it up in the microwave and top with almond butter and OMG you will literally melt it is so good.

 

Dinner was nothing you have not seen on this blog. With the rainy cold weather going on lately our dad cooked up a big pot of his famous turkey chili. Well folks, I think it is time for some beauty sleep for yet another 8-4:30 shift tomorrow. You have until 12 pm tomorrow to enter our Voskos giveaway so make sure you do not miss out!

I want some Bolani not Bologna

6 May

Thursday- 5/6

Wow!

Who knew Thursday could come so fast on a “b” week, usually it feels like a century. Today was a fairly entertaining day for the most part. We started our day with a Kim & Scott’s Cinnamon Roll Pretzel served alongside a pink lady with almond butter, and a Caramel Toffee Tea Latte.

 

This was the last pretzel, and it was so bomb, but I think my fav. was the pink lady with ALMOND BUTTER. Oh how I have missed you almond butter, you are pure joy 🙂

 

My marketing class is also making a music video for our final. Today we decided on the song “Stronger” by Kanye West. Mine and Whit’s class are going to battle it out to see who has the best video. I am so psyched, and the technology class is going to post it on YouTube, so stay posted in the next two weeks for the link to the videos!

 

Yesterday when we arrived home there was a lovely package from Bolani East & West Gourmet Afghan Food awaiting for us. Now, you are probably wondering what in the heck is Bolani. Well here is some info.:

“Bolani is a traditional Afghani flatbread stuffed and baked with either spinach, pumpkin, red potato, or green lentil filling. They are best served warm as a main dish, side-dish, appetizer, or Hors d’oeuvre”

So…. this is why you should eat it:

“It is the Perfect Diet Food because Bolanis are nutritionally rich in protein, fiber, and vitamins, but low in carbohydrates, calories, fat and sodium. They are ideal for vegans of those looking for healthy alternatives to meat products.” 


The company was very generous and sent us many of their Bolani’s and Spreads/Dips to review. In the package included:

  • Garlic Mint Cheese
  • Cilantro Pesto
  • Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto
  • Lentil Curry Hummus
  • Basil Pesto
  • Smoked Egg Plant
  • Sweet Jalapeno

 

  • The Spinach Bolani
  • The Pumpkin Bolani
  • The Potato Bolani
  • The Lentil Bolani
  •  

     

    Todays pick: Lentil Bolani

    With some soup…

    Minestrone to be exact(it was chilling today and it sounded like the perfect match)

     

    Look at what a mess I made taking it off the pan, it was so soft it just crumbled in my hand lol.

     **Verdict: Only 140 calories, very fulfilling, and has a unique flavor. I have always put lentils in my salads, but in a flat bread, omg it is amazing 😛 What an awesome product you have Bolani. THANKS a million.

    Well after lunch, Whit and I did our usual mid-week ritual and went grocery shopping for our momma.

     

    While out and about in the cold, it felt like a Starby’s kind of day. So we quickly made a pit stop and order NF Toffee Nut Lattes and Oatmeal Outrageous Cookies. It was the perfect afternoon snack.

     

     

    When we got home, it was time for a date with Jillian, and yes I am talking one sweaty 40 min. workout date! It has been far too long since I have done this video. It kicked my butt. By the end I could barely lift the weights, I was breathing heavier during the weight lifting portions than in the cardio. lol I guess I know what I am going to need to work on!

     

    Once again continuing our mission to clean out the freezer, we enjoyed some Peppercorn pork tenderloin, rice and gravy, and carrots w/ hummus.

     

    I almost forgot look at all of these great steals we got from Target today:

    My swimming suit: $14.00 for each piece

     

    Whit’s suit: the same price

    Aren’t they both so adorable!

     

    Also after watching Girl Meets Health’s vlog yesterday about good self tanners, we picked up these puppies! Oh man, what a life saver these are going to be when I break out the shorts for Summer 😛

    Well time to do some more homework. Tomorrow’s Friday!

    QOD: What are your favorite self tanner products?
