What We Ate

6 Mar

Spring break is
F-A-B-U-L-O-U-S
And our days are spent relaxing, crafting, finding new ways to use our groceries, and blogging.
Who can complain about that?
Nope. Not us.
But we kind of know who could.
Someone who isn’t so lucky.
Maybe someone in class, at work, or studying for a midterm exam.
For those who fall into that category we apologize.
We can try to enjoy the break for the both of us.
But until your own break, take a second to check out what we ate yesterday for #WIAW linkup.

When we don’t have school we have endless amounts of time to spend in the kitchen. Breakfast can become a bit more exciting to say the least. We think today’s breakfast fell into that category.

Baked apples filled with oatmeal, egg whites, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, and honey. Topped with Greek yogurt, nuts, and some more cinnamon

This fueled us for a morning filled with job applications. We are in desperate need of a job, ASAP to keep us busy. And to save for Kay’s upcoming trip to Australia. And for Dev’s boot addiction.

We are still on the salad kick. So when lunch time rolled around it was quite obvious what we were having.

Baby spinach, canned salmon, lentil hummus, carrots, cucumber, and buckwheat groats drizzled with some of our left over Whole Foods sun-dried tomato and balsamic dressing from this weekend.

Plus an orange for some extra Vitamin C. And a thick slice of Trader Joe’s multigrain bread smeared with Sunbutter.

Our sorority initiation is coming up and we must know all of our chapter’s history, founders, etc. We refreshed our brains and made sure we were familiar with everything. After that we needed a tea break. Tazo calming tea for the win. We are slightly obsessed with afternoon tea. It just feels so right.

By the time we were done filling out job applications and returning them it was already past 4 o’clock! We spent the next hour relaxing before cooking up some dinner. Originally we had plans for a frozen yogurt dinner date with a friend but she had to reschedule so we threw something together quickly that actually turned out pretty awesome. Later this week we’ll have the recipe for you guys! Whole wheat pasta with diced tomatoes, kale, crab meat, basil, thyme, red pepper flakes, lemon juice, and Parmesan cheese.

Today is one of those days where we had a lot of hopeful plans but nothing seemed to work out. We wanted to start watching a new series on Netflix but for some reason our parents password and login information was not working. Booooo.

But on a good note we ended our day with the greatest #SIAB (smoothie in a bowl) we’ve ever made. We blended together 1/2 cup of almond milk, 1/2 cup of water, a frozen banana, 1/4 cup of strawberries, and 1/4 medium avocado. We topped it with granola, Uncle Sam’s cereal, chia seeds, and peanut butter frosting! It was heaven.

Now that you have check out our recent eats, be sure to see what else is being featured over at Peas and Crayon’s blog.

WIAW GOES GREEN

Throughout the month of March her #WIAW theme is “Going Green”. Our tip of the week for how to add more green onto your plate is to make sure at least one of your meals each day has spinach/kale/mixed greens/ etc. as a base. Don’t be shy, always try to add a handful of greens into any soup, on-top of a sandwich, or in your pasta bowl. It is a great way to add some color into to your life!

Now we would like to know from you, what’s your favorite meal of the day? We decided ours was obviously breakfast! So many fun breakfast combinations to choose from.

      You do! The avocado made it soooo creamy. Plus smoothies in a bowl just make life so much more awesome.
