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 ♥

Fabulous end to a fabulous day!

16 Apr

So pretty much after lunch today, Court and I came home and passed out for about 3 hours. LOL, I love♥  a good nap that can just knock you out like that! That is when you know your body needed it. And it’s Friday, we’re gonna be working all weekend, you know take advantage of that spare time. After making a Tuna melt yesterday for dinner, I thought of another great meal. Tonight we made a healthier version of a Tuna Casserole, with all the ingredients pictured below.

 After mixing all ingredients, it was put in the oven at 375 for about 15 min.

Viola! It turned out great, and randomly paired was a piece of smart balance buttered toast and Grapes 🙂

 

 Simple. Easy. Delicious. Friday.

 

 After dinner, our mom gotta kind of mad at us for not doing the yard work she asked us to do earlier which was to pick up all the leaves under the tramp and along the fence whoops! lol So after the lecture we headed out to the backyard with a trash bag and tried to pick up all of those leaves ASAP, I mean we did have some plans, and it is Friday night, I mean Come on Mom? Really?

When the yard was all leave-free, we got the okay, then headed to Stella’s Coffee House for a fun night with the older sister. This evening’s flavor was a Non-fat White Chocolate Mocha. And look, they even have Heart Thrive’s there. So Court and I split the Apple pack. This was our first time trying these, and they are yum yum for the tum tum.

 

 As soon as we picked up our warm drink, we wanted to go around the corner to Washington Park. We took about an hour walk all through the park and around Smith Lake.

 

 It was beautiful, so many people we’re out bike riding, and the weather felt perfect.

 

 Here we are on the dock. I am on the left, and Court is on the right.

 

 These houses are really classic old, and so awesome! Our older sister Karstee wants to move over here, and I think one day I would too. This area is right by DU and the Cherry Creek area.

 

 

 

 There were Geese everywhere, and we were all a little afraid that they might attack us. Lol, nope. Glad to report they did not.

 And would you look at the root of that TREE! okay, random but Karstee told me to take a picture so I did.

 

 In the mail today, we tore open Goji cookie HEAVEN 🙂 There was this fabulous package from Gourmet Goji!
