Cheesecake Oats, oh my…

14 Jul

Good Afternoon friends ūüôā

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† Every Wednesday is a rest Day for the TURBO FIRE plan, so today no workout for these chicka’s, just sleep and work. How nice, I love rest days. And as a bonus we were not closers today, so we got out of work at 2 0′ clock sharp!

The Breakfast combo was Blueberry Cheesecake overnight oats with a Raw Cashew Crust

**Note- If you have never tried any of our overnight combo’s, this one is a true WINNER! Totally epic. lol..

>Step 1: Make the Crust

  • Soak 2 tbs of Raw Cashew(or regular) in a bowl of water for about 4-5 hours until softened
  • Drain water
  • In a food processor blend the cashews with about 6 pitted dates and a drizzle of agave
  • Press the newly mixed “paste” into the bottom of your bowl
  • set aside while mixing oat mixture

 >Step 2: Make Oat mixture:

-Mix together

  • 1/2 cup oats
  • 1/4 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup plain non-fat yogurt
  • 2 tbs unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 pkt stevia/sweetener
  • 1/2 tbs of Jello Sugar-Free Cheesecake powder

>Step 3: Pour over crust

>Step 4: Top with frozen or fresh blue berries

>Step 5: refrigerate overnight

 

 Seriously it was so creamy and really tasted like cheesecake. A two thumbs up for this creation. Take a bite out of that! This morning we added chopped walnuts and a sprinkle of Kashi GoLean Crunch.

¬†Since we had work today, and really did not feel like packing anything, another snacky¬†lunch like the other day came to the rescue. Seriously this lunch never fails, lol. It is easy, fast, and satisfying. Theses new Cookie Dough Larabars¬†are the shizzz. Have you tried them yet? If you haven’t, they really taste like cookie dough, and now Court and I want to recreate them even better.

¬†With all this super HOT and humid weather today, a yogurt mess was in desperate NEED when we got off work. And I’m not even gonna lie, it was one of the best messes. The creative juices are flowing, and we know what is good today.¬†The ¬†combo included:

  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 heated banana nut VITATOP
  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • 1 tsp Walden’s Calorie Free Carmel sauce
  • 1 tsp almond butter
  • sprinkle of silvered almonds
  • sprinkle of galaxy granola

¬†The name UliMana… What comes to mind?¬†¬†

How about ~

Handmade, vegan, raw chocolate truffles, raw chocolate brownies, raw chocolate-dipped date rolls, nutritive cacao spreads, hot chocolate mixes, and superfood treats!

Yes, this company makes yummalicious healthy raw chocolate that is 100% Vegan friendly. And let us warn you 100% addictive. These chocolates taste fudgy like and amazing.

**VERDICT- We loved these chocolates, and are still becoming vegan lovers step by step. I do have to admit that we were a little iffey as to whether non-dairy chocolate would be as good as say milk or dark chocolate, but there was nothing to be worried about. They were creamy, fudge like, all-natural dessert. Mmm, more Vegan desserts please?

Haha, well I have no clue what to make for dinner, but the tummy is rumbling, and it’s time to go feed it.¬†Oh ¬†yeah Court and I got some really exciting news, and we will tell you all about it, if the plans go as followed. Have a great night, Vlog is in the works, and will probably be posted Friday night. Keep those q’s coming, this is fun.

Peace out Loves!

XOXO

>Update Dinner Pic: “Pizza” Veggie Salad with a toasted Alternative bagel. Yum! Decided that pizza sauce makes the best dressing on salad.

 

Wake up and inhale French Meadow Bakery!

1 Apr

Thursday 4/1

Last night, we also recieved a package of French Meadow goodies! They were kind enough to send us:

  • Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bagels
  • Sprouted Grain Tortillas
  • Gluten Free Fudge Brownies
  • A really cute mug!

 

So this morning Whit and¬†I decided to try the cinnamon raisin¬†bagels ¬†for breakfast ūüôā These bagels are a good source of fiber, protein, and they are vegan!

Look at this breakfast, a bagel never looked so healthy! This was definitely the breakfast we needed to help us power through our Insanity Max Plyo video(55 min.) today. I feel like I did much better with this video today than what I did last week, but I was still a pool of sweat lol.

 We topped the left half bagel with the rest of our pb loco white chocolate wonderful and strawberry preserves. The right half consisted of skippy all natural crunch pb and pumpkin butter. These were the best combos.

Bagel Verdict:¬†These bagels were very thick and satisfying. They have a good wheaty¬†taste alond with the yummy raisins. I felt better eating these than the ones from Einsten Bros. because these are¬†actually made from all natural¬†ingredients. I cannot wait to try the rest of these products. You can find them at almost¬†any health foods store. I actually just saw them at Sprout’s for the first time yesterday¬†Thanks¬†again to French Meadow Bakery.

¬†Our breakfast was also served with our favorite green tea lattes….

 

And a yogurt parfait

It consisted of kiwi and some granola from Bakery On Main. They sent a few packs of granola and granola bars to review last week. The flavors included:

  • Gluten Free Apple Raisin Walnut
  • Gluten Free Nutty Cranberry Maple
  • Fiber Power Cinnamon Raisin
  • Fiber Power Triple Berry

*This granola is 100% natural, contains no artificial anything, no trans fats, and no refined sugars. Sign me up!

Cinnamon Raisin Granola was the chosen one this morning to go along with our cinnamon raisin bagel hehe.

GRANOLA VERDICT: This granola has just the right hint of sweetness. It tasted like it was homemade instead of store bought. I loved it. The only downfall is I wish there was more in the package. Overall though, I would definitely buy this granola again.

Well Whit and I have plans to go to Subway with our mom today on her lunch break, so that should be relaxing. Other than that my day is completely clear just to relax.

 

QOD: What have your spring break plans consisted of?
