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.

HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY!!!!!

Oh boy did this morning feel amazing! We got to sleep as late as our bodies would let us, then wake up with nothing much really on the plate to do. So we took our time making and enjoying breakfast. This mornings breakfast was a Superfood Blueberry Pie Smoothie in a cup, with some toast.

Smoothie:

  • 1 Yoplait Thick n’ Creamy Blueberry Pie Yogurt
  • Almond Milk
  • Silken tofu
  • Blueberries
  • 1 banana
  • Spinach
  • Wheat Germ
  • Flax Seeds
  • Vanilla Whey protein

The toast were so good. The Bread was apple cinnamon flavored from Sprouts, and all natural ingredients. One slice was topped with homemade raw cashew butter, and the other side was raspberry preserves.

After breakfast, we did our Insanity Recovery day workout, and then baked.

It is not only St. Patrick’s Day, it is our older sister Karstee’s¬†birthday. So we made her favorite cake Cherry Chip into some really cute Cupcakes. And we made them really healthy by using apple sauce in place of oil, and all egg whites. They were super moist!

And then decorated to perfection of course=) Cohitney¬†could so open a bakery… What do you think ehhh? lol

For lunch we met up with Karstee, and went to Subway. We both enjoyed an Oven Roasted Chicken breast sandwich on flatbread with tomato, bell peppers, onion, and spinach. So good!

Afternoon Snack: We split the Maple Cliff bar(Taste just like a stack of pancakes with maple syrup) We heated ours in the microwave, so much better. mmm

Lookey what finally came in the mail, our Vegetarian Times Mag, yay! There are so many good recipes I can not wait to try out.

For dinner tonight, since we are Irish, we honored that by making Shepherd’s pie from this recipe:
