The Light at the End of the Tunnel & WIAW Week 17!

24 Apr

Happy Hump Day! Thanks to our over achieving genes we inherited from our mother we are basically done with this semester! Five more days of classes, a couple of presentations, and only a few finals (only one final for Kay) stand between us and summer vacation! While everyone else is stressing over last minute papers they procrastinated on….we are relatively stress free since we managed to work ahead earlier in the semester!

You know that feeling? It is a freakin’ awesome feeling!

Cheers to being able to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

And cheers to another WIAW.

If we start the day on a good note, the rest of the day typically follows. Yesterday was no different. Banana chia baked oatmeal from Kylie and her wonderful food blog imma eat that. This was our second time making it for breakfast because it is THAT fabulous. Since our mornings are pretty crazy we mix the dry ingredients the night before to make it easier in the morning. In the morning we add the wet ingredients and pop it in the oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. By the time we’re walking downstairs ready to go breakfast is ready!

Topped with a dollop of greek yogurt, (it’s under there we promise!) banana slices, and strawberries.

Lunch today was inspired by the avocados we need to use up ASAP. Last week we purchased a big bag at Cosco because they were so much cheaper than at the grocery store! We made a panini on whole grain bread with mashed chickpeas and avocado, paprika, tomato slices and spinach. Served with a side of baby carrots and grapes!

This afternoon a package arrived on our front porch! Devon won a giveaway from another blog. We are so excited to try these out! They are an all natural sweetener in vanilla creme flavored! We think they are going to add such an awesome flavor to coffee and smoothies! Has anyone used these before? If so, please share!

We love smoothies and we like to think that a day isn’t really complete without one. Yesterday’s combo was a cup of almond milk, 1/4 cup of frozen peaches, a handful of spinach, and 1 frozen banana. Eaten out of a bowl with some cereal, almonds, and fresh fruit on top. Afternoons are so much more fun with smoothies don’t ya think?

Dinner was on the go tonight since we both worked this evening. Enjoyed in the car before work was a salad with mixed greens, beets, feta, lentils, chickpeas, and cucumbers. Topped with a pomegranate vinaigrette dressing!

Finally after work a late night snack was much needed. Stonyfield strawberry greek yogurt topped with chia seeds, hemp seeds, and buckwheat groats. This was much enjoyed well reading the latest Cosmopolitan.
