It’s a boy!

28 Jul

Well it has been a long time since we have talked baby talk. In case you have¬†NO clue what on earth I am talking about then look back at this April post! ūüôā

If you do not remember then let me feel you in. Our sister-in-law¬†Erica is pregnant and she is having a BOY! Unfortunately today was mine and Whit’s first day back to work so we did not get to go to the doctor’s office with Travis and Erica. But by the time 9 am rolled around we got the great news! My mom was especially excited because she wanted a grandson so bad since there are so many girls in our family lol! The baby is no longer due on December 18th(our b-day), but on December 10th. So now that we know the sex of the baby…

Let the SHOPPING¬†begin!¬†The first thing on my to do list is to¬†customize a onesie that say’s, “I’ve got twin¬†aunties!”

Do any of you have a niece or nephew? 

 

Being the first day back to work and all Whit and I wanted an easy breakfast… so we had Shakeology aka the healthiest meal of the day!

 

Blend:

  • 2 cups ice + 2 cups water
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • instant brown sugar oatmeal(low sugar kind)
  • 1 scoop choc. shakeology
  • 2 tbs. peanut butter
  • 2 sweetener packets of choice

All I can say is WOW! This breakfast rocked. Usually I do not like having liquid for breakfast, but in this case it was ok. This recipe made 2 giant cups. Adding the oats to this gave Shakeology a whole new twist. It had a very thick texture and was so filling. I literally was not hungry all day running around at crazy work. This is definitely the kind of breakfast you need to have on work days ūüėČ

 

For lunch we thought it would be fun to get some more greens in so we had a veggie parsley egg puff salad with a new Mojo to try!

The salad included:

  • romaine
  • spinach
  • 1/2 parsley cheese stick¬†cubed
  • egg whites
  • roma tomatoes
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • carrots
  • red onion
  • 2 tbs. light italian dressing¬†

 

After work Whit and I picked up some chocolate pb. After seeing this banana split oats, Whit and I have been dying to make them soon! We wanted to get the MaraNartha one, but is was way too expensive. Oh well, maybe next time. We could not just put this pb in the pantry without testing it out first so we made yogurt messes! Todays was a chocolate mango mess. It sounds odd, but it was incredible ūüėõ¬†

We used one of our VIP coupons that Turtle Mountain sent us to try some coconut yogurt!

This definitely has a different texture than dairy yogurt.

The finished product:


**Verdict:¬†This yogurt did not look like the yogurt I am used to… I guess being dairy free and all. It was so cool though is looked and had the same texture as apple sauce, but tasted like sorbet. I wonder if it really would taste like frozen sorbet if you froze it! Imagine the possibilities¬†you could do with this yogurt. It definitely could give a new twist to oatgurt ūüôā

 

 

I think I hear the doorbell. It is probably the pizza guy. The whole family is together to celebrate tonight. I could not be any happier.

QOD: Have you tried Shakeology yet? If so, what is a great recipe you have made with it?
