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!



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!

I want some Bolani not Bologna

6 May

Thursday- 5/6


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?
