We Just Don’t Want to Let Go of the Green

Happy Wednesday! We cannot believe this is the last Wednesday in March! This month seriously flew by! We are definitely not complaining though. We are glad April will bring warmer weather, flowers, and sandal season!! You know what Wednesdays bring. Today we are linking up with Peas and Crayons for another #WIAW. Hope you enjoy reading about our eats from yesterday! We are looking forward to finding out what Jenn will choose for next months theme.

Breakfast featured some of our new products that we found during our last grocery trip haul. First up is apricot sugar free preserves… Yum!

And Pure Bliss organic vegan blueberry granola…double yum!

Placed on top of whipped banana oats with blueberries, buckwheat groats, and sun butter makes for one awesome breakfast combination.

Here’s a close up! Drippy, melty sunbutter at its finest.

When lunch time rolled around we were craving a huge salad. In the bowl went spinach, avocado, grapes, hummus, baked chicken breast, colby jack cheese, carrots, and buckwheat groats for some extra crunchiness.

Another new grocery find this week was peanut butter strawberry Luna fiber bars. They remind us of healthy Nutrigrain bars. We had one of these after lunch to satisfy our sweet tooth! They are seriously the bomb. Luna products are our favorite. We have yet to come across a flavor we do not like.

Coffee round 2.

We may or may not still be using our stash of sugar free peppermint mocha coffee creamer. To be honest…we just really do not want to let go of Christmas.

Today’s afternoon was jam-packed so our snack was a smoothie on the go.

One of us had a job interview and the other one had a group project to work on at school. Definitely a crazy afternoon. What do we have here? A pretty bag but a not so pretty water bottle. We definitely need to go to TJ Maxx sometimes during Easter break to pick up new, cute tumblers.

We’ve been wanting to make eggplant pizzas for a while and tonight we finally got the chance. We made 3 separate kinds. The first one was topped with pumpkin purée, arugula, mozzarella, and broccoli. The second one was topped with marinara, tomatoes, spinach, and onions and the third was topped with marinara, arugula, and broccoli. Paired with a side salad it was a great dinner.

Monday afternoon we had a mother daughter date with our mom and “grandma” at Desserts Etc. Although she is not technically our “grandma” she has definitely played a major role in our life. We like to call her Nana Anna. This bakery is a local favorite and recently they have gotten some new, healthier options on the menu. We both tried the vegan cranberry quinioa breakfast cookie. It was awesome!

It was huge! So we decided to save a 1/4 of the cookie for a snack the next day. It was perfect crumbled over a peach Fage greek yogurt. We loved them so much that we are going to try and make our own version next week! If we are successful, expect a recipe in the near future.

Of course a day is not complete without at least one mug of tea. Organic chia for the win.

      They are really good! Hope your grocery store gets them back in stock soon! Let us know what you think once you get the chance to try them.

      We are so sad to hear you cannot find coffee creamer where you live. Peppermint flavor is the bomb! Apparently it’s peppermint mocha but we only really taste peppermint 🙂
